Discover our range of world-class solutions designed to meet the key requirements in terms of product performance and aesthetics, sustainable construction, ease of use and productivity across a variety of applications in the construction industry.
Minerals for building materials
We offer a range of world-class solutions which meet the key requirements in terms of product performance, sustainable construction, ease of use and aesthetics of a variety of applications in the construction industry. These are geared towards new build and renovation, for both residential and non-residential projects, always looking to progress in terms of durability, innovation, safety and sustainability. Our global footprint allows us to deliver the same products that customers are used to at any location around the world.
We offer our customers four lasting benefits: sustainable construction, protection and robustness, aesthetics, and productivity.
In order to achieve this we tailor fillers, aggregates and functional additives to meet the specific performance expectations of end users. These high-performance products are used in a wide array of applications such as flooring, cement tiles, roofing, ceiling tiles, joint compounds, concrete, adhesives and grouts, technical mortars, waterproofing, renders and insulation.
Building chemistry requires a combination of innovation, consistency, color and reactivity. Our years of working closely with building contractors and engineers allowed us to gain an in-depth understanding of our customers’ needs. Whether this be through partnered product development at one of our technology centers or through onsite guidance, our wide-reaching expertise is invaluable.
Today’s building industry is driven by trends towards greater innovation and sustainability. We continuously develop new game-changing products and solutions, such as our mineral foams, green concrete, low CO2 binders, post-industrial recycled materials. These new solutions aim to improve site performance, achieve sustainability targets, and meet regional standards related to thermal insolation, carbon reduction and even fire safety.
