How to make foam concrete

2018-05-17 18:35:21

Foam concrete sounds like an oxymoron, but it is used heavily in do-it-yourself home projects both big and small. Fire resistant and insulating, foam concrete is a versatile product that can be either decorative or beneficial to a building project. Mixing up a batch requires a minimum amount of tools and skill for the average Diyer, and the benefits are bountiful.

 

What is Foam Concrete?

The cement-based slurry that creates foam concrete is made up of a foaming agent and typical mortar. Concrete foam was originally used as insulation in the 1920s. The material was brought into home construction projects in the '80s where it was used as an inexpensive patch alternative for walkways and walls. It was also found easy to manipulate and form molds that were inexpensive to make and light enough to move around. It has the benefits of being stress-free to construct and contains fewer chemicals, which crafters tend to prefer for small projects around the home.

 

Common Uses

It works well for seasonal decorations, such as Halloween yard tombstones or large outdoor planters. It can be painted or otherwise decorated and is durable to the outdoor elements. It can also be used for insulation around outdoor ponds, building retaining walls in the garden and the construction of eco-friendly, weather-resistant and resilient floor panels. Foam concrete can also be used as a filler to remedy broken brick patios or filling in unused pipes too deep or expensive to dig up. There are many types and styles of formwork or molds for casting that can finish off your project in hours after the foam concrete has cured at least overnight.
