Lightweight cement wall panels, also known as concrete EPS (Expanded Polystyrene Styrofoam) wall panel, is a green building material used for environmentally friendly homes. This concrete lightweight wall panel is produced by mixing cement, and small styrofoam balls as a lightweight aggregated instead of the crushed stone used in regular concrete.
The lightweight eps wall panels made from cement, insulated cores (expanded EPS particles) has several advantages over the more traditional mix for concrete blocks. EPS concrete has increased insulation properties, especially for thermal insulation, and because it’s up to 1/6 lighter than stone-based concrete block, it can reduce the wall occupying space, increase the rate of using residential space, reduce structure load, and reduce the comprehensive cost.
Polystyrene beads addes insulating properties and lighten the weight of concrete, so using the EPS to mix cement for concrete making can produce the lightweight easy wall panel. Here introduce how to make lightweight cement wall panel by EPS Expanded Polystyrene Styrofoam.
Place water into Hongfa concrete mixer. The amount of water depends on the size of concrete mixer you choose, 1m3, 2m3, 3m3, 4m3 or 5m3 mixers are available. Add in any additive you wish to use in the concrete, and mix the add-ins thoroughly with the water.
Add the Portland cement automatically by the screw conveyor transport. If you want the mix with sand or fly ash, you can add sand and fly ash during the process. Mix thoroughly with the water, creating a mix that’s soupy in texture.
To make the concrete eps wall panel, the styrofoam polystyrene beads is very important. In this process, place the certain EPS particles after accurate weighing by Hongfa EPS weighing scale by the EPS pipes. Mix for a full minute to allow the beads to absorb the water before adding additional buckets of Styrofoam.
Continue adding the EPS Styrofoam, taking the time to mix in the concrete mixer after the addition to the cement mixture. The Styrofoam will quickly absorb the water in the mix. If the mix becomes too stiff to incorporate the beads, add additional water as needed.
When the styrofoam has been absorbed and mix even, it should stop mixing the concrete. The mixture should be of a low-slump variety, pourable but not overly soupy.
Filling the ready concrete EPS to the Hongfa wall panel making machines. There are three types of Hongfa cement wall panels machines for options. Different types wall panel mold cars are with different filling ways. This concrete eps will be used as a slab or wall material, so after pour the finished concrete eps directly into the Hongfa wall panel machinery, then can place and leave it to cure. To know more details, please check how to produce cement wall panels by Hongfa plants & machinery.
Remove the cement wall panel from Hongfa Mold car after 4 – 8 hours depending on the curing technology. This process also called cement eps wall panel demoulding.
Then after certain days, the concrete eps wall panels can be transported to the building sites for lightweight internal or external walls construction.
The green concrete EPS Wall Panels produced by Hongfa exclusive cement wall panel plant & machinery has becomes more and more popular in the construction filed.
