The construction industry continues to develop at an exponential rate, both in terms of the volume of material used, but also with the technicality and complexity of materials used.
Mare remains at the forefront of this huge industrial sector ensuring maximum product performance, as well as optimum efficiency at minimum cost during the process.
In many construction materials, including concrete, cellulose ethers are used as stabilisers, binders and as a source of hydrophilicity. Niklacell CMC (Carboxymethylcellulose) enhances many key aspects of construction materials including water retention, stiffness, rheological behaviour, consistency and structure.
Niklacell CMC also shows excellent dispersion qualities and solution stabilisation when used in drilling.
In Niklasdorf, Austria, Mare remains one of the few producers of CMC (Carboxymethylcellulose) in Europe. CMC is one of the most commonly used thickeners and binding agents used in industry today. Mare’s range of Niklacell CMC’s includes both purified and technical grades able to meet the toughest of technical specifications.
Polyacrylates are also a key raw material in the construction industry primarily due to their excellent dispersant qualities. They are also one of the most effective chemicals available for scale control.
Located at Mare’s headquarters and largest production facility in Ossona near Milan, Italy, Mare produces a wide range of Maredis Polyacrylates. Over 50,000 tonnes of Polyacrylates are produced each year, many of which go into the construction and concrete industries.
Rosin soaps also play a pivotal role in several construction materials, including concrete where they are used as an “air entrainer”.
