Foam concrete used as sound-absorbing and energy-absorbing material

The US Commerce Secretary has announced that the US will temporarily lift tariffs imposed on Ukraine during the Trump administration to help Ukraine recover its economy and continue to show support for the Russia-Ukraine situation. "For steel mills to remain an economic lifeline for the Ukrainian people, they must be able to export steel," the Commerce Department said in a statement.

The Biden administration will announce the lifting of steel tariffs on Ukraine for one year.  Ukraine is a fairly small supplier of U.S. steel, shipping about 218,000 tons in 2019, ranking it 12th among foreign suppliers to the United States, the report said. The U.S. Commerce Department noted that the steel industry is uniquely important to Ukraine's economic strength, with one in 13 people employed in the steel industry. 

Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk concrete foaming agent are still very uncertain.

Sound-absorption function

The open-cell foam concrete is an excellent sound absorption material, while the closed-cell foam concrete is an excellent sound insulation material.

 

Materials with an average sound absorption coefficient greater than 0.2 are usually called sound absorption materials. There are two kinds of traditional products: fiber (rock mineral wool board, etc.) and porous (foam and foam glass, etc.). Foam concrete is a new type of porous sound absorption material, and its average sound absorption coefficient is 0.8-1.4, which is a strong sound absorption material and can reach the first or second grade standard. It has great market and competitive advantages in the following aspects.

 

1.     Outdoor sound-absorbing materials (road, railway sound absorption barriers)

Foam concrete outdoor sound absorption material market is mainly the sound absorption barriers on both sides of highways and railways. At present, the sound absorption barriers used in roads are mainly sawdust cement board and foam glass board. The former has a low sound absorption coefficient, which can not meet the needs of high-speed railway, and is not beautiful, while the price of the latter is too high. The foam concrete has good sound absorption performance and can meet the sound absorption requirements of any road, but the price is very low.

 

2.     Sound-absorbing materials of indoor walls

Indoor sound absorption has sound absorption ceiling and sound absorption wall. Foam concrete has a great market advantage in wall sound absorption. Compared with rock mineral wool and other fiber sound absorption board, it does not have the disadvantage of itching all over the body during cutting and installation, and the strength is good, and the price is also low. In the subway wall, this product will have a big market, in large shopping malls, station waiting rooms, theatres, conference halls and other building walls also have a huge market.

 

3.     Sound insulation sandwich composite board (partition sheet)

The existing indoor partition is in the wooden keel on both sides of the installation of 5 "10" paper plasterboard, the wall is empty, not sound insulation, not strong, can not be nailed. The foam concrete composite sound insulation board is 5 inches thick and occupies a small space, the two surfaces are colored decorative layers, and the middle is 4 inches thick foam concrete, which has both isolation and sound insulation effect, and is twice as fast as installation, so it is welcomed by consumers.

 

Energy-absorption function

1. Used in energy absorption in airport protection.

Foam concrete has very strong impact resistance. Ordinary concrete can be broken with a sledgehammer, but it is difficult to break foam concrete. Making use of its energy absorption, a number of high value-added products have been developed, such as airport safety protection foam block, racing track safety protection foam block, road accident prone zone safety protection foam block and so on. When an aircraft or a car rushes out of control out of the runway or road, it enters the foam block protective belt, which stagnates and protects the aircraft or vehicle intact due to the impact absorption performance of the foam block.

 

2. Used in shooting and explosion energy absorption protection.

Foam concrete has a good absorption effect on bullet shock wave and explosion shock wave, which can greatly reduce the destructive power of shooting and explosion. In terms of anti-explosion, there are two types of products of development significance and civilian use.

Southern Copper Corp (SCCO.N) recently said its Peruvian mine remained closed after a six-week standoff with protesters and blamed the Peruvian government for failing to intervene in the safety of its 1,300 workers and their families.  

The company said in a statement that a recent agreement to end protests at the Cuajone mine required the company to withdraw complaints against protest leaders because railways transporting minerals and supplies remained blocked. Production has been suspended since the end of February.  

Peru's Energy Ministry said in a separate statement that it had also reached an agreement with Southern Copper to start talks to find common ground with local communities.  

"If we shut down for a year, the government will stop receiving more than 3.1 billion soles ($830 million) in taxes and royalties, and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be lost. This is what we want to avoid, "Southern Copper added in the statement.

Peru has faced a wave of protests from indigenous communities, who accuse mining companies of not providing enough jobs and funding to poor local residents.  

Central bank officials said last week that protests against copper mines such as MMG's Las Bambas and Southern Copper's Cuajone were dragging down the economy.  

Peru is the world's second-largest copper producer and mining is an important source of tax revenue for the country. It is estimated that the supply and prices of the concrete foaming agent will be influenced by that.
