Thermal Insulation of Foamed Concrete Propump Engineering

What is Foamed Concrete? Foamed concrete is a highly air entrained sand cement or cement only slurry with greater than 20% air by volume. The air is created by the introduction of a preformed foam manufactured using Propump Engineering’s custom foaming agent (Propump 26), encapsulating bubbles of 0.3-1.5mm diameter.
