foam concrete blocks (also known as CLC foam block, aircrete, or cellular lightweight concrete) are one of the most versatile building materials on the market. These blocks can be used in a wide variety of construction projects, from homes to highways. They are engineered to the highest quality, and are completely customizable for each project’s unique needs.
Foamed concrete has several advantages over traditional concrete products, such as lower cost and lighter weight. The process of making CLC block is also more environmentally friendly than traditional methods.
To make your own foam concrete, start by adding half of a 94lb bag of concrete mix to your mixer or wheelbarrow. After the cement is mixed well, add the rest of the bag. Mix thoroughly until you get a uniform mixture, then prepare to add the perlite.
Perlite is a lightweight aggregate that helps to thicken your foam cement mix. The amount of perlite you need will depend on how thick you want your block to be. For a more lightweight result, you can add as little as 5 gallons of perlite. For a stronger block, you can add up to 25 gallons.
After you’ve mixed all of the ingredients, it’s time to pour your foam concrete. Pour the mixture into your molds and wait for it to set. Once it’s ready, remove your block from the mold. If you want, you can add a layer of concrete over the top of your foam to give it an extra level of strength.
