The FOAM MATE is a great way to make Air Crete. The benefits of air crete are: insulative, lighter than standard concrete mixes, use less concrete for the same project. The Foam Mate works by adding air into the concrete mix so you can fine-tune how porous your end product is. Once you have experimented with the ratios of ingredients you can create a product for your own particular build.
Our first project will use the air crete in the heat riser of a rocket mass heater. Rocket mass heaters get hot enough to melt steel so the mix had to be just right AND very light weight (it is being used in a movable tiny house).
Watching videos on youtube we are excited to try the Foam Mate on the projects others have show us such as: homes, patio, fence, preform bricks, fire pits, outbuildings, porch with out door kitchen. What would you use it for?
This is the complete Foam Mate assembled.
I can say I like it as due to weather I cant use it yet (freezing here!). But it looks great and I cant wait to use it. He is very communicative and easy to reach.
