GCP Applied Technologies Inc. has launched two new cement additives: OPTEVA HE quality improvers and TAVERO VM grinding aids. The products aim to “delivery higher-performing, lower cost cement production”, GCP said.

OPTEVA HE quality improvers provide options for gaining higher early strength and are “particularly effective for challenging cement,” GCP continued.

TAVERO grinding aids “help to stabilise vertical roller mills during production by reducing water injection requirements and cement pre-hydration.” They also improve cement performance by delivering higher strengths and shorter setting time.

“We continue to reinforce our position as the global leader in cement additives by providing innovative solutions to our customers,” said Naren Srinivasan, Chief Strategy, Marketing and Development Officer.
