OUR AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Grenzflächen EN 16:9

Our expertise within the world of Construction is based on extensive industry specific experience of interfacial phenomena within the Construction industry.

We offer innovative, tailor-made solutions – particularly in our core competencies: silicones and oleochemicals. And using our diverse range of molecular components, we can design new products for admixtures, mortars and industrial building materials.

Examples:
liquid/liquid:

Today´s emulsifiers enhance and optimize the dispersion of hydrophobic substances in aqueous mediums.

solid/liquid:

Wetting agents support the optimum dispersion of liquids on solid surfaces.

liquid/gas:

Air entrainers create stable air voids in a liquid medium. By contrast, defoamers and deaerators alter the structure of air voids in liquids – allowing air to escape more easily.

liquid/solid:

Dispersing agents ensure the ideal, homogenous distribution of solid substances, e. g. pigments or filler materials, throughout a liquid matrix.
