In terms of international pricing benchmarks, according to the CP data released by Saudi Aramco, the propane contract price (CP) in March was $895 / ton, up $120 / ton from the previous month, up 15.48% from the previous month and up 43.20% from the same period last year. Butane contract price (CP) in March was 920 US dollars/ton, up 145 US dollars/ton compared with last month, up 18.71% month-on-month, up 54.62% compared with the same period last year; In March, CP in Saudi Arabia rose sharply, giving a strong boost to the international and domestic LPG market. Benchmark LPG prices are higher than a year ago as the economy continues to recover and demand for crude oil continues to repair. According to this trend, the market price of foamed concrete will also be affected to a certain extent.
1. Determine the material
The compatibility of cement foaming agents and the foaming machine is the first consideration. Because there is a problem with compatibility between cement foaming agent and cement foaming machine. To understand the compatibility of the cement foaming agent, it is also necessary to determine the reasonable dilution ratio of the foaming agent. If it is the first time using the cement foaming agent, it is recommended to refer to the dilution ratio recommended by the manufacturer and then combine it with your machine test to find the most suitable dilution ratio.
2. Cleaning up the construction site
The first is to clean up the debris and install the water and electricity. Sprinkle cleaning to moisten the surface of the cast-in-place operation; pay attention to the watering must be even and do not have water accumulation.
3. Test whether the foam generator is regular in advance
The test method is to dilute the foaming agent according to a specific ratio, then make foam, and arrange the foam outside the machine to see whether the foam moisture content and the viscosity of the foam are standard.
Whether the bubble is about 1mm, if the moisture content is high, the cells may need to be replaced with steel balls.
4. During the construction of foamed concrete, it should be noted that the slurry of foamed concrete cannot stay, and it should be leveled immediately after pouring to make it stop.
To prevent the foam from breaking and collapsing after re-construction after static stop.
5. Attention should be paid to the influence of air temperature during the construction of foamed concrete. When the air temperature is below 10 degrees, a foaming agent with high stability and suitable for winter application should be selected.
When the air temperature is lower than 5 degrees, it is recommended to use early-strength composite Portland cement in addition to an excellent foaming agent. If conditions permit, a simple plastic greenhouse can be built.
6. Construction in summer requires main moisturizing and maintenance. There are two ways to choose, one is to cover straw curtains, reed mats, sacks, sawdust, wet soil, and wet sand, and the other is to cover with plastic sheets

Due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the covid-19 pandemic, how will the international situation develop is highly uncertain. It is too difficult to assess its economic impact properly. However, we could see energy prices and commodity prices keep rising and supply chains are disrupted. Therefore, foamed concrete prices are expected to rise in the future.
