The building industry is constantly changing and is faced with many challenges. The requirements are increasing especially by the globalization.
- Limited resources of fossil energy sources
The increasing use of energy sources such as oil and coal reduces limited resources of the world. Large amount are used for the production of building materials. Our innovations save global recourses by using alternative, recycled and environmentally friendly raw materials.
- Climate change
Climate change is mainly attributed to the unlimited anthropogenic CO2 emissions since the beginning of industrialization. The production of cement is due to the high energy demand one of the largest sources of carbon dioxide worldwide. By the use of secondary raw materials from industrial processes, we reduce the cement content of our products and contribute to a considerable extent the climate protection.
Increasing health problems in the processing of building materials result in a more stringent labeling of products. We reduce the critical components. Silicate products replace objectionable organic constituents without health hazards.
- Global technical challenge
The products used on construction sites need to fulfill constantly increasing demands. Higher strengths, better resistance, durability and higher flexibility are just some examples. There are also other important aspects such as environmental friendly.
Innovations in the form of two new binder systems for nearly every application
The Eco-Binder system replaces cement products and partly epoxy resins. The required amount of cement is significantly reduced by the use of alternative binders. The results of the substitution are a longer shelf life, lower environmental impact and increased efficiency of the end product. The products manufactured from environmentally friendly recycled materials products improve the environmental balance in the CO2 emissions significantly. The Green Cement can be adapted to the local raw materials to produce environmental friendly and high-tech building materials locally.
The silicate binder system offers unprecedented opportunities for the chemical resistance of mineral and inorganic materials. The chemical resistance of the silicate binder system, confirmed by independent test institutes, represents a breakthrough in the dry mortar technology. With the offered silicate systems, it is possible to protect concrete surfaces from acids, salts and aggressive media permanently. The silicate system consists of an inorganic and one-component binder with environmental friendly ingredients. The processing is possible without advanced protection measures and expenses.
