Cement Based Applications

For centuries, builders knew about the advantageous properties of Calcium Carbonate for cement based applications, such as dry mortar and concrete. Today, Omya Ground Calcium Crabonate (GCC) in the form of various Betocarb® and Betoflow® grades are the preferred Mineral Plasticizers® for technical applications such Self Leveling Underlayment, Self-Leveling Screed, high performance Concrete or 3D printing.

Omya provides products with clear value propositions for various applications in the wide field of cement-based systems. Focusing on the required characteristics of the final product, Omya adds value through its range of functional minerals.

Mineral Plasticizers® of Omya 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.
