Air Entrainers & Foaming Agents
Freeze thaw durability and controlled low-strength materials
Air entrainers increase resistance to deterioration from cyclic freezing and thawing exposing conditions. Foaming agents help reduce concrete density to make flowable fill concrete. These products improve workability and cohesiveness of concrete facilitating placement.
- Facilitates the development of a stable air void system within concrete that increases concrete durability
- Destabilizes entrapped air in fresh concrete, allowing it to escape during subsequent mixing, thus reducing the air content.
- Reduces concrete density to make lightweight concrete or low strength (flowable fill) concrete.
