TAVERO™ HEA2®
Description

HEA2® is one of the most effective dispersants yet developed for use as a grinding aid/pack set inhibitor for portland cement and other hydraulic cements. HEA2® greatly improves the efficiency of the grinding process by reducing the surface energy forces which cause agglomeration of the newly fractured cement particles. HEA2® is effective in both open circuit and closed circuit cement mills.

Key Benefits
  • Increased mill output at same cement fineness
  • Reduced grinding costs
  • Higher cement strengths
  • Increased cement flowability
  • Greater bulk density
  • Controlled set times

Overview

TAVERO™ grinding aids make life easier for busy cement producers

Our grinding aids are designed to increase mill output without increasing costs, while saving energy and reducing CO2 emissions. Improved cement flowability reduces the effort for handling and transporting cement.

Improve grinding efficiency 

For decades TAVERO™ HEA2®, TAVERO™ LGA® and TAVERO™ MTDA® grinding aids have been used throughout the world to optimize the production of cement by ball mills. The introduction of TAVERO™ VM grinding aids round out the product line with solutions designed specifically for vertical roller mills (VRM). 

Using TAVERO™ VM additives and cement production best practices gleaned from GCP’s decades of field experience, you can achieve lower water injection, less cement pre-hydration and therefore:

  • Shorter initial and final setting time 
  • Higher early and late strength 
  • Increased throughput 
  • Lower energy consumption

A tradition of both service and innovation

GCP pioneered the development of chemical compounds for use in cement grinding over 80 years ago. Today, we continue that tradition of excellence by innovating chemical additives for the cement industry of the future. This commitment to innovation is matched by a commitment to service. We gladly offer tailor-made solutions for individual plants and cements, provide training for cement plant personnel and audit grinding systems to ensure our customers extract the maximum value from GCP grinding aids.
