What are CLC Concrete Advantages?

The World Platinum Investment Association (WPIC) said recently that carmakers are accelerating reductions in palladium use and increased use of platinum due to concerns about Russian palladium supplies. However, it still expects a significant surplus in the platinum market this year.

Palladium is used by carmakers in tailpipe emissions systems to reduce carbon emissions.  While carmakers prefer palladium for catalytic converters, they are turning to platinum, which is cheaper than palladium, to save costs.

Russia accounts for about 25-30% of the world's palladium supply and 8-10% of its platinum supply.

There is no sign that western sanctions against Russia have restricted palladium exports since the conflict escalated in February, but as the conflict continues, more companies could boycott The Russian metal and governments could impose restrictions.

Platinum is currently trading at about $950 an ounce, about half the price of palladium.  Automakers use about 2.5 million to 3 million ounces of platinum and about 8.5 million ounces of palladium each year.

For the year as a whole, platinum supply will be 5 percent lower than in 2021 and demand 2 percent higher, with the automotive sector seeing a 16 percent increase due to increased light vehicle concrete foaming agent are still very uncertain.

CLC Concrete Advantages

Foamed concrete has good physical properties, combining insulation and electrical resistance. It has many benefits that make it one of the best alternatives to building materials. For example:

Rapid assembly 

Its low density and lightness allow for increased installation speed. It's also easy to work with because it's not a complex material to cut from. 

Compressive strength 

It varies with the density of the material. Obviously, the greater the density, the greater the resistance. You can even use it to build multi-level collective housing. 

Resistance to water absorption 

The concrete structure absorbs water much more slowly. It is a humidity regulator that absorbs any excess humidity or softens dry air. In this way, you can create a pleasant atmosphere in your home.

Thermal insulation 

As we mentioned earlier, it maintains a comfortable and cool indoor environment in both winter and summer.

So, during the cold season, the interior will stay warm, and in the summer, we will be able to keep the interior cool. This will save a lot on air conditioning and heating costs. 

Economical

Foamed concrete is 10 to 87 percent lighter than conventional concrete. This substantial reduction in weight represents significant savings when building foundations and structures. 

Transport 

As a light material, it weighs only half as much as similar materials. This makes shipping tasks, as well as working with it (cutting, hammering nails, sawing, etc.) much easier. 

Durability 

Porous concrete ages well over time. It's as durable as rock and doesn't break down. 

Sound absorption 

Only a small amount is absorbed by the concrete, and most of it bounces back into place.  The noise that actually reaches the interior is minimal. 

Versatility

It's a very versatile material when it comes to shape and form. It can be easily made into anything: arches, pyramids, angles, etc. Therefore, it adds to the aesthetic impact of the building. 

Fire resistance 

Due to its low thermal conductivity, foamed concrete has a very low heat flux. It is an ideal material for industrial, agricultural and administrative buildings. 

Reduce waste 

This is critical in areas of high seismic risk. If an earthquake occurs, the broken walls will collapse, but not as much as other traditional materials. 

 

CLC Concrete Types

Pure CLC Concrete 

Use portland cement, water, and prepared foams or gases. It has no solid aggregates. To make it, water is mixed with cement and then chemicals or foams are added, which must be mixed correctly to achieve cellular consistency. 

Sanded CLC Concrete

It contains cement, water, selected foamed aggregate, and sand with a maximum diameter of 4mm. 

Lightweight aggregate concrete 

It is composed of pumice stone and tezontle instead of sand and stone. These aggregates must have strong compressive properties to increase compressive strength. 

Foam concrete with expansive aggregate 

The addition of these aggregates has been shown to help retain moisture when curing concrete in hot climates.

It is also a protective element for metal structure fire prevention. 

Foam concrete containing dispersant additives

The dispersal effect of the additive helps hydrate the cement particles, improving compression resistance and increasing fluidity due to a reduced cement/water ratio.

New Delhi: India is seeking to increase its purchases of crude oil from Brazil, the country's oil minister said recently after meeting his Brazilian counterpart.  

India is the world's third-largest importer and consumer of crude oil. Brazil currently supplies only a fraction of India's crude oil imports.  

India's state-owned companies Bharat Petroleum Corp and Oil and Natural Gas Corp have invested in oil and gas exploration in Brazil.  

India, which imports about 84% of its crude oil needs, is reducing its import bill by increasing biofuel use, among other things.  

India's state-owned fuel retailers are increasing ethanol storage capacity by 51 percent and the country plans to double the biofuel blend in petrol to 20 percent by 2025.  

India and Brazil are currently cooperating on biofuels and ethanol.

The prices of many commodities like the concrete foaming agent are expected to increase in the future.
