Concrete Admixtures – Durability in combination with safety
Faster processes and more reliable materials are required to compete in the construction marketplace today. This is particularly true in dam, underground and tunnel construction, and other areas where concrete is subject to high loads or requires protection from environment and service abuses. In these situations, Holderchem offers products designed specially to influence the behavior and ultimate performance of concrete. Through our technology we create concrete that sets faster or slower; that exhibits greater capacity to withstand physical and chemical influences; that offers improved mechanical strengths; that ensures fast, on-time project completion. And through all of our efforts to ensure concrete that provides longevity and durability, we understand that technical support and application safety are equally important. In every respect, we strive to develop superior products that work not only effectively, but also safely, never compromising the health of workers, surrounding areas or the environment. Holderchem offers products that compete in today’s construction marketplace encompassing:
- Concrete admixtures: They simplify concrete placing, enable faster mold stripping, and provide defect-free concrete surfaces. Thanks to improved application efficiency, overall economy is optimized.
- Shotcrete admixtures: New product systems simultaneously improve pumpability and high early strengths for greater layer thickness. Our alkali-free, new generation accelerators contribute substantially to improved safety of workers and the environment.
- Mortar admixtures: Application efficiency and flexibility at the job site are considerably increased through controlled hydration of the cement. Even large areas can be placed with consistent and uniform results.
Mortars – To preserve and improve
To everything there is a season. And sooner or later, even the most solid structures will feel the touch of time. But while mechanical and environmental stresses compromise all structures eventually, their effects can be minimized and often postponed. Holderchem has pioneered a comprehensive system for repair and restoration of distressed concrete, with products developed for workability and compatibility. Repair and grouting mortars work to reinstate the concrete to its original condition and to further extend service life by improving structural capabilities. To ensure complete success, trained Holderchem specialists provide on-site support and guidance in the proper handling and application of Holderchem products.
Holderchem has pioneered a system for repair, restoration and long-term protection of concrete structures. Our comprehensive package of proven products, application training, and technical consulting provides the right combination for lasting structural performance.
- Repair mortars: Comprehensive and state-of-the-art concrete repair and restoration systems responding to a wide array of applications and requirements. Pre-packaged, ready to use, they develop excellent adhesion and low shrinkage.
- Grouting mortars: Excellent flow characteristics and minimized shrinkage guarantee precise anchoring and grouting of structures and equipment.
- Rendering mortars: Variability in application techniques and specially adapted additives ensure uniform and well-protected surfaces.
Protective Systems – More out and around concrete
Providing technology to support cement and concrete manufacturers is only one part of the picture at Holderchem. We also offer a broad range of products for the protection of concrete surfaces and structures. Flooring systems with metallic fibers, dry-shake surface hardeners as well as self-leveling cement and resin based floor toppings and underlayment. All provide protection and added performance for industrial, institutional and commercial applications. Coatings, adhesives and waterproofing systems are offered for enhanced protection and improvement of concrete performance and aesthetics. Along supplying all of these products, Holderchem provides customers with solid technical training and application guidance. With superior products and informed, educated applicators Holderchem has gained respect and has proven to influence the construction industry. Whenever concrete protection and / or concrete performances need to be improved, Holderchem offers the best-suited, most durable and effective protective systems for all concrete surfaces and structures.
- Floorings: Mineral and metallic dry-shake hardeners and toppings for heavy-duty industrial flat floors provide increased abrasion and impact resistance.
- Coatings: For high mechanical and chemical resistance and improved hygiene and aesthetic demands.
- Fibers: Steel fibers minimize joint design, counteract concrete cracking and generally increase the mechanical strength of the concrete.
- Ceramic Tiles and Stone Materials: Holderchem boasts a complete range of products adapted to all installation systems on any scale. The range includes cementitious adhesives, paste adhesives, hydraulic binders for screed, primers, leveling compounds, grouts, sealants and ancillary products suitable for special applications such as repair work without demolition, decorative applications and applications that need to be handled in a speedy and efficient manner.
