Lightweight Concrete Technologies
Polymerization of a large number of organic molecules called polymerization occurs at the end of a chemical reaction called a chain structure.
Polymers have parallel and linear chain structure and make softening-hardening transformations with heating-cooling cycles. Polymers consist of randomly arranged and bonded chains and cannot soften by heating after curing by polymerization.
Polymers without chemical activity have higher compressive and tensile strength than normal concrete. However, modulus of elasticity is lower and creep deformations are higher. Thus, the weak tensile strength of concrete is improved by the use of polymeric materials.
Furthermore, the bonding agents used to strengthen the adherence between the polymer and Cimento beads and increase the strength of the composite.
Polymers covering the surface of Crete particles provide resistance to shrinkage cracks caused by expansion and contraction movements of concrete.
Since the foam has a concrete cell structure, shrinkage cracks caused by shrinkage during the drying process of the concrete disrupt the concrete structure.
Polymers reinforce the structure by improving the weak tensile and shrinkage strength of Foam Concrete.
POLGEN USE IN FOAM CONCRETE
Cement weight is added to concrete mixed water at a rate of 0.3% - 0.7%. foam is added after the homogeneous mixture is provided.
