Abstract : Ice and snow alabaster is obtained by mixing alabaster with snow and water, and after 10-15 minutes the member is strong enough to be carried into the drying room. In this way, a material with much better properties than foam alabaster can be obtained from alabaster without wasting valuable products in preparing a foaming emulsion. Similarly, it is possible to obtain a foam concrete which can be used as load-bearing members, ceilings, etc. (Author)
