GCP to present two new cement additives in Asia

GCP states that the two new additives can help yield more sustainable cement production while enhancing quality and improving cost efficiency.

TAVERO™ VM grinding aid additives help stabilise vertical roller mills during production by reducing water injection requirements and cement pre-hydration. At the same time, they improve cement performance by delivering higher strengths and shorter setting times. OPTEVA™ HE quality improvers are cement additives that provide options for gaining higher early strength, and are particularly effective for challenging cements.

Launched in the US, this will be the first time producers in the APAC region will have the chance to learn how our TAVERO™ VM grinding aids and OPTEVA™ HE quality improvers can help deliver higher-performing, efficiently-produced cement products,” said Robert AuYeung, Asia Pacific Director of Marketing, GCP Applied Technologies. “In addition, one of our GCP in-house experts will be presenting a paper on improving the quality of cement from vertical roller mills by reducing pre-hydration.”

GCP Applied Technologies has more than 80 years of experience producing high-quality grinding aids and performance enhancers. “Our cement additives and water-reducing concrete admixtures reduce air pollution equivalent to more than 10 million cars annually,” AuYeung said. “Through the use of GCP’s cement additives globally, about 3000 megawatt hours of electricity are saved daily, which is equal to the daily energy consumption of half a million families.”
