Foaming agents plays a major role in reducing the density of the board, which allows for ease of handling, thermal insulation, sound proofing, shorter drying times and savings in raw material cost.
The conditions at different gypsum board plants vary with raw materials and production methods. Due to the environmental differences in every gypsum board plant, Unger Functional materials have developed several foaming agents called UFAPORE GP. Each UFAPORE GP product has outperforming properties and are excellent foaming agents in their own defined environments.
By choosing the right type of foaming agents you are able to improve line speed and production capacity and at the same time reduce consumption of aggregates both at standard board production and hydrophobic boards (green boards).
The foam makes a difference – Unger UFAPORE GP products.
