raw material, Omya offers tailor made mineral solutions that address the
innovative and sustainable needs of the construction industry. Today, Omya’s Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC)
in the form of various Betocarb® and Betoflow® grades is bringing multiple
benefits to flooring, technical mortars & concrete.
the required characteristics of the final cement-based product, Omya adds value
through its range of functional Mineral Plasticizers® which provide strong
benefits like improved packing, stability, water-cement ratio and therefore an
optimization of the admixture efficiency. This way Omya covers both, economic
and ecological optimization of the cement-based compositions.
Technical mortars and concrete
Self-Leveling Mortars (SCM)
Self Compacting Concrete (SCC)
Anchoring and grouts
Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC)
- Packing enhancement
- High compatibility with all additives
- Better whiteness and color
- Binder content optimization
- Fine packing optimization
- Synergy with SCMs(1)
- Flow improvement
- Cost saving
mortar to structural concrete, GCC and fine GCC is incorporated into a variety
of underlayment and self-leveling formulations. They provide higher
stability, reduced bleeding and better color & aesthetic.
consistent purity and fineness of Omya GCC to ultrafine GCC, make them
compatible with all binders (organic and mineral), SCMs and additives. Selected GCC improve
the fine packing, flowability, cement hydration rate and mixing time process.
to our GCC and Ultrafine GCC we offer a wide and diversified range of specialty
chemicals & minerals amongst other lightweighting materials.
