Our unique customization process allows us to create specific formulations dialed in to exact specifications of cement plants all across the globe.

Cement Product Solutions

Greater Grinding Starts Here

The liquid grinding aids we create help to improve cement flowability, grinding efficiency and mill throughput. This results in decreased energy consumption and improved material handling.

  • TAVERO: Increase production capacity while reducing energy consumption and distribution cost to help minimize environmental footprint.
  • OPTEVA: Maximizes both grinding efficiency and cement strength to levels unmatched by conventional grinding aids.
  • TAVERO® HEA2® products: Grinding aids and flowability enhancers for Portland cement and other hydraulic cements.
  • DARAGRIND® products: Developed to grind a variety of minerals, such as limestone, calcium carbonate, silica and quicklime.

Cementing A Better Quality Product

Our liquid quality improvers enhance the grinding process, improve quality, and allow for the addition of lower-cost, environmentally-friendly materials to cement.

  • OPTEVA® ESE® products: Increase early compressive strength and are-chloride free. Particularly suited for the activation of Pozzolans and Slag.
  • OPTEVA® CBA® products: Particularly suited for limestone cements, these boost compressive strength at medium to later stages. They also improve mortar flow and reduce concrete water demands.
  • Customized additives are available to meet the needs of individual plants and cements, such as:
  • Higher strengths at all ages
  • Setting time acceleration or retardation
  • Reduction of water demand and increase of slump retention in concrete
  • Reduction of the carbon footprint of cement

Functional Additives for a More Functional Process

Our functional additives portfolio features SYNCHRO® liquid cement additives for chromium reduction as well as TYTRON®, HYDROPHOBE® and AIRALON® additives for high-performance masonry cements.
