Allied Foam Tech has developed a universal foam technology for a wide range of industrial and environmental applications. The excellent stability and dynamic nature of Allied`s aqueous foams make them ideal for use in reducing the weight of cement/concrete, ceramics, firebricks, adhesives, coatings, and binders. Foam stability derived from Allied`s many foam systems usually outranks that of any other existing technologies available in today’s marketplace.
The AFT series of foam agents, using compressed air and Allied foam generating equipment, generates very fine and stable foams. They are used for the manufacture of lightweight (or foamed) concrete, lightweight ceramics, insulative firebricks, alternative landfill cover, foam coatings, foam adhesives, long-duration firefighting foams and other uses. Substrates such as cement, concrete, coating formulations or others that incorporate Allied's foam products usually exhibit reduced weight with improved workability, insulation value, sound proofness, and expanded applications.
Allied has also developed various models of compact and versatile foam generating equipment for production or field application that can be manually or remotely controlled.
At Allied we are committed to the continuing development of versatile and highly stable aqueous foam and systems with a wide range of properties and applications that meet the specific needs of our customers in the various industrial sectors.
Foamed Concrete and Lightweight Concrete - With densities from over 1,450 kg/m3 (90 pcf) to as low as 48 kg/m3 (3 pcf) for geotechnical engineering & landscape architecture, lightweight concrete roof deck, lightweight wall and floor panels partitions lightweight concrete blocks insulative cinder block inserts.
Fleixible Foam Cement Composites - High flexural strength, good Mandrel bending behavior without cracking, good adhesion, exterior durability and excellent water resistance.
Landfill Cover, Odor Control & Site Remediation - Allied pervious & non-pervious foamed cement are capable for waste encapsulation, immobilization, soil stabilization and leachate filtration. Allied long lasting foam, applied as a surface cover on landfill sites and effluent ponds and lagoons, will effectively suppress noxious odors, vapors, litter and vectors, avoiding serious environmental issues.
Lightweight Ceramics & Foam Ceramics - with densities as low as 23 kg/m3 (1.5 pcf) for fabrication of insulative and high temperature resistant ceramic foams.
Pervious Foam Cement & Acoustic Foam Cement - Allied chemically engineered open and closed pore properties within their cell structure are very similar to that of urethane and polystyrene foams, but without their associated poor fire resistance, yet with outdoor durability and great cost advantage.
Insulative Firebricks -with excellent strength and thermal shock resistance for fabrication of durable firebricks used as high performance insulative materials for kilns and incinerators.
Geopolymer Foam - Flexible and very light (< 1.5 pcf or 24 kg/m3). Various geopolymer foam composites can achieve insulative value R > 3.8 per inch and fire resistance.
Foam Coatings & Binders - Using a foamable mixture as an expansion agent permits application of a controlled film thickness with improved resin distribution and penetration into the fabric fibers. Foam textile binders dry quickly without causing fiber distortion.
Foamed Adhesives - Using adhesives, based on Allied's foam system, will reduce adhesive consumption and prevent adhesive absorption by porous substrates.
Firefighting Foam -Specially formulated foam from Allied can be used as long duration fire fighting barriers for the containment of forest fires.
