The trade name LithoFoam® includes several foaming agent types as well as other additives such as networkformers and stabilizer. LithoFoam® foaming agents are protein based with enzymatic active components, developed especially for the building material industry. Diluted in water and processed in a foam generator with compressed air it produces very fine and stable high quality foam.
Standard protein based foaming agents, are made with protein hydrolyzate from animal proteins out of horn, blood, bones of cows, pigs and other remainders of animal carcasses. This leads on the one hand to a very intense stench of such foaming agents on the other hand to a broad range of molecular weight of the proteins because the raw materials are always changing.
The new innovative foaming agent technology by Luca Industries International, however, is not based on the unattractive protein hydrolysis but on a biotechnological procedure. Thus LithoFoam® products have a neutral, technical odour and are adjustable to every need.
With the highly active enzymes and proteins in LithoFoam® only 3-10% active agents are sufficient to reach better results than standard protein based foaming agents, requiring 30-50% active agents. As a result, less superfluous external material that could disturb the properties of the concrete mix is inserted with the foam. The low ratio of active agents is made possible through a special process using biotechnology, developed by Luca Industries International. This way LithoFoam® foaming agents can be offered at prices far below those of competitors.
