New cement additives

GCP Applied Technologies Inc., a leading global provider of construction products technologies, has launched two new cement additives, Opteva HE quality improvers and Tavero VM grinding aids, to deliver higher performing, lower cost cement production.

These products meet the demands of modern cement plants for solutions that yield more sustainable cement production, with enhanced quality and improved cost efficiency:

Opteva HE quality improvers are cement additives that provide options for gaining higher early (HE) strength and are particularly effective for challenging cements

Tavero VM grinding aid additives help stabilize vertical roller mills (VM) during production, by reducing water injection requirements and cement pre-hydration; while at the same time improving cement performance by delivering higher strengths and shorter setting time

The company will continue to expand its comprehensive portfolio of additives for cement production with high-performing quality improvers under the Opteva brand and innovative grinding aids under the Tavero brand.
