U.S. natural gas futures rose about 5 percent to a near nine-week high as global energy prices surged on concerns over a pricing plan for energy exports, keeping U.S. LNG export demand near record highs. U.S. natural gas prices have risen despite forecasts of mild weather and lower-than-expected demand, which will allow utilities to fill up storage facilities next week. On Wednesday, Germany launched an emergency plan to manage gas supplies in Europe's largest economy. If natural gas supplies are interrupted or stopped, the German government could take unprecedented steps to limit electricity supply.
Affected by the increase in the price of natural gas, the price of the Cement Foaming Agent will also increase.
Cement foaming agent is the core material of foamed concrete. Choosing a suitable cement foaming agent is the key to producing qualified products.
1. Fully understand the type of cement foaming agent
Different types of foaming agents have different foaming power and foam stability, so there are certain limitations in the use process. Only after knowing the type of foaming agent can you understand its performance characteristics. When choosing a foaming agent, you can have a target.
2. Carefully master the technical indicators of foaming agents
The main indicators to measure the quality of foaming agents include foaming power, foam toughness, and bleeding volume. The foaming power reflects the foaming ability of the foaming liquid, which can be expressed by the foaming height and the foaming multiple. The higher the foaming height and the larger the foaming multiple, the stronger the foaming power of the foaming agent.
3. Carefully understand the use of foaming agent
The foaming agent on the market generally has a relatively high concentration, and when used, it needs to be diluted with a certain proportion of water to form a foaming liquid, and then the foaming liquid is foamed. The concentration of the foaming liquid is closely related to the foaming effect. Too high or too low a concentration will affect the foaming effect. Only with a suitable concentration can a high foaming ratio and high-quality foam be obtained.
Foaming agent production characteristics
1. The foaming speed should be appropriate, too fast or too slow will affect the quality of concrete.
2. The diameter of the generated hydrogen bubbles should be small and evenly dispersed. Especially when the cement slurry is poured into the injection mold under the full volume state, it needs to be evenly dispersed to ensure the quality of the injection mold.
3. The setting and solidification of cement shall not be affected when gas is generated. If the setting of cement is delayed, the strength of the cement will decrease or abnormal cement setting will occur.

Researchers at the Centre for Translational Atomic Materials at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia have developed a new graphene film that absorbs more than 90% of sunlight while eliminating most of the infrared thermal emission losses, a highly efficient A solar-heated metamaterial capable of rapidly heating to 83 degrees Celsius (181 degrees Fahrenheit) in an open environment with minimal heat loss. Proposed applications for the film include thermal energy harvesting and storage, solar thermal power generation, and seawater desalination.
