Foam glass is a porous glass foam, widely used as a construction material. Foam glass is made by heating powdered glass along with blowing agents such as limestone and carbon. Glass used for the manufacturing of foam glass are post-consumer recycled glass, flat glass, commercial glass and also the end of life glass from vehicles. Foam glass has properties such as waterproofing, vapour-tightness, incombustible, pest-proof, compression-proof, dimensional stability, acid-resistant and others.
Key market driver for foam glass is increasing expansions in the building & construction segment due to the highest form of insulation provided by the foam glass as compared to other insulation materials. Besides, the increase in building and construction activities in developing regions such as Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa are expected to support the growth of the foam glass market.
