CCT’s Stable Air® Foaming Agent has brought precision and predictability to the process of creating lightweight concrete. This revolution allows you to accurately predict, maintain and control air volume in every batch. Stable Air® Foaming Agent is a liquid air-entraining admixture that provides freeze-thaw resistance, enhances the finishability characteristics of concrete, and allows concrete producers to accurately control yield. Comprised of a blend of synthetic foaming materials and manufactured under stringent controls, our ASTM C260 certified foaming agent assures both quality and consistent performance.
After years of research, CCT has specially formulated our foaming agent so it will work in most equipment available today! Available in 5-gallons, 55-gallons and 275 -gallon totes. We also provide our line of foam generators if needed, or can update your own equipment with any additions such as lenses.

Recommended for use in all ready-mix, precast, prestress and other concrete products where the intentional entrainment of a specified level of air is required. ACI 201 Guide to Durable Concrete recommends that all concrete which is exposed any level of freeze-thaw exposure or is subjected to the application of de-icing salts during the winter months should be air entrained.
Stable Air® has been found to be particularly effective in both high cement factor and low slump concrete mixes, which require a very efficient air-entraining admixture. Stable Air® Foaming Agent is also often utilized when a very stable air void system over time is required.
Air is incorporated into concrete via mixing mechanics and stabilized into millions of discrete semi-microscopic bubbles in the presence of air-entraining admixtures such as Stable Air®. These air bubbles act much like flexible ball bearings, increasing the plasticity and workability of the concrete. This allows for reductions in mixing water with no loss of slump. Surface bleeding, plastic shrinkage and aggregate segregation are also minimized.
Through the purposeful entrainment of air, Stable Air® markedly increases the durability of concrete to severe exposures, particularly freeze-thaw cycling. It has also demonstrated a remarkable ability to import resistance the action of frost.
Stable Air® addition rates will vary according to the specified level of air required. Addition rates are also influenced by mix design parameters, material properties of the cement, fly ash, coarse and fine aggregates, and other admixtures. Also, ambient and concrete temperature, mixing time and time of addition can affect the required dosage rates.
It is recommended that pre-job testing be conducted to assure the correct dosage rate of Stable Air®. Request a sample here.
With a dilution rate of 1:120 compared to competitors' 1:40 rate, Stable Air® Foaming Agent uses 3 times less product while still producing the same amount of foam, if not more. Volume and distributor discounts are available. Please call (877) 828-1954 for pricing and to order.
