Global concrete foaming agent market trend 2022-2027 Different Types of Foaming Agents (3) by Newspsp-vault

Russia and Ukraine is an important exporters of oil, natural gas, metals, fertilizers, rare gases and other industrial raw materials. Affected by the further intensification of the tension of the war, the global market has become more worried about the supply of the concrete foaming agent, and panic spreads in the futures market. Prices of commodities such as aluminum and nickel are at recent highs on concerns that supplies will fall. Russia accounts for 49 percent of global exports of nickel, 42 percent of palladium, 26 percent of aluminum and 13 percent of platinum, and is a significant exporter of steel and copper. Palladium is an important metal for sensors and memory. In addition, Russia is the world's largest exporter of nitrogen fertilizer, the second largest exporter of potash fertilizer, and the third-largest exporter of phosphate fertilizer. Ukraine is also an important producer of nitrogen fertilizer. Russia's natural gas supply also has a significant impact on the global fertilizer industry and concrete foaming agent industry, especially in Europe. The price of the concrete foaming agent will also fluctuate to some extent. Russia carries out crude gas separation, and Ukraine is responsible for refined exports. Ukraine supplies 70% of the world's neon, 40% of krypton and 30% of xenon. These three gases are the materials used to make chips.

Introduction to Foaming Agents

The foaming agent is a kind of material that makes the object matter into pores. It can be divided into chemical foaming agents, physical foaming agents, and surface-active agents.  The chemical foaming agent is a compound which can release gas such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen and form fine pores in polymer composition after decomposition by heating.  The physical foaming agent is the change of the physical form of a certain kind of material through the fine pores of foam, namely through the expansion of compressed gas, liquid volatilization, or solid dissolution and the formation of the compound.

In the last article, the physical foaming agents of hydrocarbon foaming agents and hydrofluorane (HFC) foaming agents have been mentioned. In this article, the chemical foaming agents of OBSH and DPT will be talked about.

 

Chemical Foaming Agents

There are many kinds of substances used as chemical foaming agents. According to the chemical structure, there are mainly N-nitrite compounds, such as N, N-nitroso pentamethylenetetramine (DPT), N, N-dimethyl-N, N-dimethyl-p-benzarbonamide (NTA), etc.  Azo compounds, such as azodicarbonamide (ADC), azodiisobutyronitrile, isopropyl azodicarbonate, diethyl azodicarbonate, diazo-aminobenzene, barium azodicarbonate, etc.  Hydrazide compounds, such as 4, 4-disulfonyl hydrazide diphenyl ether (OBSH), p-benzene sulfonyl hydrazide, 3, 3-disulfonyl hydrazide diphenyl sulfone, 4, 4-diphenyl sulfonyl hydrazide, 1, 3-benzene sulfonyl hydrazide, 1, 4-benzene sulfonyl hydrazide, etc.  The main varieties used are foaming agents ADC, DPT, DBSH, and so on. 

 

1.    Foaming Agents OBSH 

OBSH foaming agent with the chemical name 4, 4' -disulfonyl hydrazine diphenyl ether, is a low-temperature foaming agent commonly used in the plastic and rubber industry. It is mainly obtained from the reaction of sulfonated diphenyl ether with hydrazine hydrate. It was first developed and used in Japan, widely used in the field of UHF wire and cable. The advantages of OBSH foaming agents are: low decomposition temperature, no need to add decomposition additives, suitable for a variety of synthetic materials; Very low toxicity, suitable for contact with food packaging materials; Good electrical insulation performance; Vulcanizing agent and foaming agent dual role; The bubbles are fine and uniform. 

 

2. Foaming Agents DPT 

The chemical name is N, N'- two nitro five methyl tetramine. It is mainly used for the rubber foaming agent, has great decomposition heat, is often added with urea, urea derivatives, and melamine to prevent irritating smell generation, basically not used for plastic foaming.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the concrete foaming agent may continue to rise.
