Based on market and customer requirements we continually develop new cements, special building materials, concretes and services. In addition to new product developments, we are also active in the areas of further development, system/process development and basic research. We work hand in hand with universities (currently 17 cooperation partners), our cement and concrete labs and the technology centre.
Areas of use: High-quality residential construction
Energy savings – resource production - established building method
Development of an optimal material together with approval.
Areas of use: Biogas systems, concrete pipes, etc.
Organic acids (lactic acid, acetic acid) may damage concrete. Therefore, plastic coatings are often used in the area of sewage and agricultural construction.
In cooperation with the Uni Augsburg we develop new, bending tensile strength concretes with short carbon fibres.
Areas of use: Extruded prefabricated parts (3D-print)
New technologies for formwork and reinforcement-free construction and prefabricated parts.
We currently cooperate with the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) to develop Celitements: new cements with unique workpieces and 40-50% CO2 saving.
Areas of use: Prefabricated parts – plasters – mortars – aerated concrete – fibre cement panels - concrete goods and special building materials
Electrodynamic fragmentation of waste concrete (ELDYNTON)
In cooperation with Fraunhofer Institut für Bauphysik
Areas of use of the recyc. cement stone: Raw meal substitute in clinker production
