CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5

CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 is a chemical blend of organic compounds intended to assist the generation of stabilized air-entrainment during the production of low density concrete and mortar systems as light weight and foam concrete.

CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 is specifically intended for the production of low density mortar systems such as pertile and vermiculate.

CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 can also be used as a normal air-entraining agent for conventional concrete and mortars.

Benefits
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 creates a matrix of stable, evenly distributed air bubbles in both the fresh and hydrated system employed.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 prevents segregation of the cement and low density aggregates such as vermiculite / pertile or other low density aggregates such as polystyrene beads.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 reduces density due to the air-entrainment increases the workability of the mix.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 does not require mechanical mixing to entrain air, however, an approved foam generator is required to produce low density and foam concrete.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 has all the attributes of conventional air entraining admixtures.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 does not retard or affect the hydration characteristics of concrete or mortars.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 reduces density up to 70% mass reduction depending on the system used and mixing equipment employed.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 increase cohesiveness - preventing separation of dissimilar materials and differing densities.
  • CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 improves workability - the micro air bubbles entrained act as ball bearings, lubricating the mix.
Domains of application

CHRYSO®Foam CQ 5 is recommended for all concrete and mortar mixes where low density and entrained air is required.
