Process and Performance Additives based on Organic and Silicone Chemistries 

Industrial Building Materials (IBM)


Building materials like boards, ceramics, insulating materials etc. are based on a variety of ingredients such as fillers, fibers, binders and many others. To optimize the production process or improving the quality and durability of these building materials Evonik offers a wide range of additives based on silicones and organic chemistries. Our water repellents, air entrainers, defoamers, emulsifiers, release agents, dispersing an wetting aids help the manufacturer of building materials to fulfill his customer needs including all economic and environmental aspects for a modern production. 


Building materials like Perlite, Bentonite, Pumice, slate, sands etc. are widely used for the productionof building mater-ials. They often have some drawbacks like high liquid absorption, bad dispersibility, bad wetting or missing adhesion to binders. Evonik offers a braod range of Performance materials to enhance the performance of fillers and granules.

  • Water repellenacy

  • Dispersing

For the product ion bitumen emulsions special emulsifiers are needed. Evonik offers a package of emulsifiers and special designed antifoams for a rapid and easy production of bitumen emulsions.

  • Water repellency

  • Emulsifying

  • Defoaming

 

Mineral fibers are used for many construction application like insulating materials or filaments for strengthening and repairing building materials. Protection against water is inevitable if you are talking about insulation. Beside silcione based water repellents Evonik offers also process additives for a better adhesion, wetting, realeasing and dispersing of mineral fibers.

Paper or celluose are widely used for building materials and in many cases the paper needs special treatment to be more resist against humidity. Evonik offers low temperature curing silicones for water proofing, increase softening and process additives to reduce foam during the production, better release.

Board production is one the most interesting application for the building industry. Modern technology allows a faster production. In these times light weight and durability of the boards is a hot topic. Evonik offers additives for foam controlling and water repellency even process additives for an easier release, faster production.

  • Air entraining

 

The most building materials needs a special binder system to keep the single parts together. Modern binder technologies are environmental friendly but they do need very often special additives to improve wetting, dispersing. Even foam control and water repellency plays a big role if the green binder technology will work properly. All this benefits can be achived by using Evonik additives for the binder industry.
