The latest forecast from consulting firm AlixPartners is that the chip shortage may cost the global auto industry $110 billion; it will reduce global auto production by 3.9 million this year. For the global chip shortage, AlixPartners analyzed that the main reason is that the chip production cycle is too long; at the same time, other uncontrollable risks from the industry chain have also affected the production rhythm. As the chip supply shortage continues to intensify, some automakers' factories have been forced to stop production for several days Even weeks, which companies such as Ford, GM, Stellantis, and others have been hit particularly hard. Even BMW, which was previously less affected, is beginning to show difficulties, with its Oxford plant in the UK shutting down for three days from April 30 and its Regensburg plant in Germany starting to reduce production shifts this week.
Chip supply shortages drive Cement Foaming Agent.
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.

For Germany, the largest economy in Europe, the impact of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on the natural gas market is the most obvious. This also exposed the serious dependence of some German industrial enterprises on Russian natural gas. Some analysts pointed out that the instability of natural gas supply has had a big impact on the German economy and threatened its market competitiveness because alternative energy supplies will not be cheap and difficult to come quickly. Increased uncertainty over natural gas supplies is putting enormous pressure on German manufacturers in sectors ranging from steelmaking to chemical production, especially Germany's large number of small and medium-sized companies.
There will be no shortage of Cement Foaming Agents for the time being, but the market demand for Cement Foaming Agents in the future will also change with the influence of various external factors. If you need Cement Foaming Agents, please feel free to contact us.
