Foam Concrete

Foam Concrete

 

a variety of cellular concrete. The properties and uses of foam concrete are similar to those of gas concrete (see GAS CONCRETE).

foamed concrete, foam concrete

A very light, cellular concrete; made by the addition of a prepared foam or by the generation of gas within the unhardened mixture.
