Lightweight foam products based on diatomite

Results are presented from selection of the parameters of a diatomite suspension for obtaining foam-diatomite products by HCBS technology. It is established that the use of HCBS technology makes it possible to reduce the moisture content of the diatomite suspension from 63 to 54%. Specimens cast from the suspension are 3 – 4 times stronger than comparable materials of similar density.
