Foamed concrete block is a lightweight building material that can be used for a variety of construction projects around your home. It can be used as a void filler, and it also can provide good thermal insulation for walls and roofs.
Insulating foam concrete blocks is a great way to make your home more energy efficient and reduce heating costs in the long run. By injecting a layer of foam into the core of your walls, you can prevent any air movement within the wall cavity, which will create an insulation barrier that can reduce your energy bill by up to 40%.
Making your own foam concrete blocks is a quick and easy project that you can do yourself at home. The basic materials you need are cement, perlite, and a wheelbarrow.
Using perlite is the key to getting the porous texture you need in your mix. It absorbs water and helps thicken the mix, making it easier to pour into the molds.
Add a few gallons of perlite to your mix. Then, stir the mixture together until it is mixed well and smooth.
Once the mixture is mixed and ready to be poured into the molds, fill them with your foam concrete mix. If the mixture is too thin, you can add more perlite to thicken it up.
Depending on the size of the blocks you want to make, you can use anywhere from 5 to 25 gallons of perlite in your mix. Once you have mixed your mixture, pour it into the block molds and let them dry until they are firm.
