Improve sustainability and performance in concrete and cement applications.

Omya Betocarb calcium carbonate grades are ideal for sustainable mortars and concrete for high performance applications.

Betocarb is a consistent high purity (>95%) , giving it high cleanliness and making it compatible with other additives. Its excellent consistency complies with the highest standards.

With a very low carbon footprint, Betocarb reduces the overall footprint of concrete and dry mortar.

High performance

Our Betocarb series of mineral plasticizers and mineral accelerators helps concrete producers deliver higher performance products by improving stability, flowability, optical properties and consistency.



Benefits of Betocarb

  • Optimized packing for greater stability through increased paste content and void filling
  • Optimized fines content, yielding higher rheological stability, reduced segregation and better flowability 
  • Increased early strength, leading to higher throughput
  • Enhanced optical properties including color brightness and surface smoothness  
  • Controlled and consistent high quality, complying with standards 
  • Improved sustainability through cement and chemicals content optimization
