Cement additives are materials added to cement for the optimization of the cement properties and the cement grinding process. Cement additives are classified into different product groups such as grinding aids, strength enhancers and performance enhancers.
Sika’s Cement Additives Technologies
Each individual cement plant has different characteristics of local raw materials, availability of possible clinker replacements (such as supplementary cementitious materials – SCM) and varying conditions during the cement grinding process.
In addition, local standards and customers’ needs regarding cement performance vary due to unique climate and construction methods. Therefore, the solution for highest possible production rates or maximized use of supplementary cementitious materials needs to be adjusted individually.
