Oil futures tumbled more than $5 a barrel on news that the Biden administration is considering releasing about 1 million barrels a day from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) for several months to cool surging crude prices.
Brent crude futures were down $4.71, or 4.2 percent, at $108.58 a barrel by 0035 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures fell $5.45, or 5 percent, to $102.74 a barrel.
At an earlier time, gasoline prices had already reached record levels because of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
The prices of other commodities like the concrete foaming agent are also expected to be volatile.
What is Foam Cement?
Foam cement is a kind of new light insulation material containing a large number of closed pores. It is made by firstly fully foaming the concrete foaming agent with mechanical methods, then evenly mixing the foam with the cement slurry, conducting cast-in-place construction, or mold forming through the pumping system of the foaming machine. Finally, after natural maintenance, it is formed.
It belongs to a kind of bubble-shaped adiabatic material. The outstanding characteristic is that the closed foam holes inside the concrete can make concrete light and heat preservative and insulate.
Advantages of Foam Cement Insulation Layer
Using foam cement to make roof insulation and external wall insulation, instead of polystyrene (benzene board) and other insulation materials, has incomparable insulation performance and structural layer adhesion performance, it is convenient for construction, environmentally friendly, efficient, time-saving, etc.
The practice has proved that foam cement has properties of good thermal insulation, heat preservation, sound insulation, light load, better than other light solid plastic extruded perlite, ceramsite, asbestos products, and other thermal insulation materials, with simple operation, high degree of mechanization, saving time, labor characteristics. Foamed cement can be transported by mechanical vertical pipeline, which shortens the working hours and improves the efficiency by 6~10 times more than other ways.
Besides, using foam cement as roof thermal insulation material, makes the adhesion between the heat insulation layer and the floor surface greatly improved.
In the past, most floor heating construction uses benzene board as the insulation layer, which cannot be well combined with the original base surface, but there is no effective adhesion, resulting in delamination, empty drum, cracking, etc. Using foam cement body as the thermal insulation layer, the foam cement insulation layer and the original floor of the small uneven base surface filling, and can grasp, grasp the formation of strong adhesion. After construction, the original surface layer basically reaches the required level, which brings convenience to the next process and ensures the overall effect of uniform thickness of the surface layer.
In addition, after using the insulation layer made by the original benzene board for 1-2 years, due to a long time of trampling, it is gradually sinking after bearing force, and it can crack up to 5~10mm. It will also cause damage to the heating pipe and water leakage. Using foam cement insulation layer can avoid such phenomenon, because the compressive strength of foam cement is higher than benzene board, the advantage is very obvious.
At the same time, using the benzene plate as the insulation layer, while heating with the temperature rise, polystyrene (benzene plate) will release residual body benzene and alkylene, etc. Especially in winter heating, doors and windows are closed, air mobility is very poor, and toxic gas cannot be replaced, which will cause certain harm to the human body. The roofing insulation made of foamed cement is not. The cement foaming agent is made of vegetable fatty acids, and the synthetic body is water-soluble. It is a safe environmental health product and will not cause harm to the human body.
Through the research of cement foaming technology, in terms of the heat insulation, adhesion, bearing, environmental health, and other aspects, the foam cement insulation layer is greatly superior to other heat insulation materials, especially suitable for large projects, high floors of convenient, fast on-site production construction. The foam cement insulation layer can also reduce the height of the floor, from the point of view of building structure design, can reduce the cost, and save the cost of the project.

The World Food Program (WFP) of the United Nations (UN) and the European Union (EU) said in a statement that the conflict between Russia and Ukraine poses risks to global food supplies, and called on the international community to increase support for vulnerable countries and jointly address food security challenges.
A few days ago, the Executive director of the World Food Program, the European Commission's commissioner in charge of crisis management, the French Foreign Minister of the ROTATING EU presidency, and other officials held a meeting in Rome, Italy, to discuss how to deal with the negative impact of the Conflict between Russia and Ukraine on global food security.
One of the officials told a news conference after the meeting that the world was facing a food supply challenge that would "last for many years" as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine pushed up global food prices and disrupted the concrete foaming agent will continue.
