GCP Applied Technologies Inc. launched two new cement additives, OPTEVA HE quality improvers and TAVERO VM grinding aids, to deliver higher-performing, lower cost cement production. According to the company, these products meet the demands of modern cement plants for solutions that yield more sustainable cement production, with enhanced quality and improved cost efficiency.
“We continue to reinforce our position as the global leader in cement additives by providing innovative solutions to our customers,” said Naren Srinivasan, chief strategy, marketing and development officer. “GCP Applied Technologies offers cement producers a complete portfolio of products and services, enabling them to lead in cement quality, cost efficiency and sustainability.”
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 said it 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.
