   Foam glass is a porous inorganic non-metallic material which is made of waste flat glass and bottle glass and is formed by high temperature foaming. It is fireproof, waterproof, non-toxic, corrosion-resistant, anti-mite, non-aging, non-radioactive and insulating. Anti-magnetic wave, anti-static, high mechanical strength, good adhesion to various types of mud. It is a stable building exterior wall and roof insulation, sound insulation and waterproof material.  
    With the development of China's construction industry, building energy conservation issues have received increasing attention. According to statistics, China's building energy consumption accounts for 23.1% of total energy consumption, while the annual heating and cooling energy consumption of various buildings accounts for about 10% of total energy consumption. For a long time, people only paid attention to controlling one-time construction investment, but did not comprehensively consider the recurring expenditures in the use process, especially the energy consumption caused by heating and cooling. Increasing the insulation performance of a house can effectively improve living conditions and save energy consumption and expenses. Therefore, building energy conservation is one of the important tasks that need to be solved urgently. China's application and research and development of building insulation materials have made great progress in the past decade. However, there is still a gap between the level of building energy efficiency in developed countries, and the application of foam glass in building energy conservation is in its infancy. There are still many tasks that require scientific research, design, production, construction and other units to work together to promote foam glass insulation materials. Application in the field of building energy efficiency.

    At present, foam glass is more suitable for exterior wall building insulation, but the current suppliers are still relatively small, and it is very difficult to meet the market needs at once. Therefore, improving foam glass process, technology and quality, increasing varieties, opening up multi-field application markets, and implementing large-scale production are rare opportunities for the development of foam glass.

    Zhejiang Zhenshen has a world-class American standard production line, has cutting-edge production technology and production equipment, and a complete and strict testing system. It is a modern enterprise integrating technology center research and development, factory trial production, installation and after-sales service integration. It is precisely because of the perfect combination of production technology and advanced equipment that Zhejiang Zhenshen produced foam glass of such excellent quality that Zhejiang Zhenshen became a foam glass manufacturer with the quality of American ASTM standards.
