Our specialised air entraining agents, branded Empicol® and Nansa®, are designed to transform plaster and mortar performance. These agents not only reduce the weight of plaster but also enhance crack resistance, boosting insulation properties post-drying. Unlock superior flow properties in mortar and plaster slurries with our high-performance additives.
Empicol® and Nansa® operate by utilising surfactants to lower surface tension in aqueous media through adsorption at the interface. This unique mechanism results in improved workability, anti-shrinkage properties, sag resistance, water retention, and frost resistance in mortar. Dosage typically ranges between 0.01% and 0.03% by weight of cement, with the introduced air amount tailored to the specific plaster or mortar type and the mixing device employed.
Opt for our air entraining agents to experience mortar and plaster formulations that not only meet but exceed industry standards. Elevate your projects with enhanced workability, anti-shrinkage properties, and overall durability.
Product and customer insights
Despite numerous cleanings, the productivity of the Reverse Osmosis plant would not recover from severe membrane fouling. The membrane autopsy revealed that the ferric hydroxide was seeding
silica polymerization and that even while the ferric hydroxide was removed, the silica scaling was continuing to grow.
The plant was experiencing weekly shutdowns for fiber clean up (~ 3 kg bags of matted slurry is cleaned per week). The shut downs were costly as they reduce plant availability for production.
The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) regulation, known as IMO 2020 was the the largest change in regulation relating to marine fuels impacting 75% of the fuel used by the shipping industry.
Keeping drilling costs low using Redi-Guard™ High Performance, an ecologically friendly drilling fluid technology with revolutionary rheological and shale encapsulation properties
AWC A-110 effectively inhibited scale at a dosage of 3.5 ppm and an operating pH of 6.9. This increase in operating pH reduced the district’s annual acid consumption by ~$350K per year based on their current production.
Research indicates that Sea Buckthorn may be able to strengthen the immune system. One in vitro study focused on the possible immunomodulatory properties of Sea Buckthorn.
MCI® -2020 V/O and ChemMaster’s Colorsil were chosen to repair and protect the walls based on their 20 year warranties and the fact that together they could fulfill the other specified repair design requirements.
The East Hokkaido region is known to have the highest volume of potato product in Japan. Unfortunately, a potato farmer in the area was experiencing a high rate of potato scab infection in his agricultural field.
