Formulation Management

Adding just small amounts of specific substances can have a powerful impact. The times when building materials primarily comprised one binder and one additive are long over. Today’s formulations are rich blends of various raw materials that meet the evolving requirements of the construction industry. However, these combined ingredients do not always produce the desired or intended results.

Ensuring the right interactions occur between interfacially active substances can have a wealth of benefits, including:

  • Improved product quality
  • Simplified formulation process
  • Reduced process time
  • Better use of ingredients

The range of additives available today ensure that individual ingredients combined produce the desired result, allowing formulations to meet demanding requirements and use ingredients to maximum effect.

Advanced process and performance additives, such as:

  • Wetting agents
  • Dispersing agents
  • Emulsifiers and
  • Process defoamers

improve the cost efficiency of manufacturing processes in terms of price-performance ratio, and lead to more effective products. Additives of these types are used in nearly all industrially made construction products, cement and mortar applications, and in the bitumen industry.
