Batimix QS-WPR Series

Grinding aids, water-repellents, and strength enhancers


BATIMIX QS-WPR Series products are aqueous solutions designed from a combination of specialty chemicals blended with stearate polymers used as grinding aids and strength enhancers with water-repelling properties in the manufacture of Portland and other hydraulic types of cement.

BATIMIX QS-WPR Series products provide all the benefits and advantages of traditional grinding aids such as increased cement fineness and grinding efficiency from the reduced agglomeration of the newly fractured cement particles. By reducing the water absorption of cement and improving cement hydration, these additives increase strengths at all ages. They are effective in both open and closed circuit cement mills.

Main Purpose

BATIMIX QS- WPR Series products are particularly recommended for the grinding of Portland, blended, masonry, and mortar types of cement. They are suitable for both white and gray types of cement.


BATIMIX QS-WPR Series products are easy and safe to handle. They contribute to achieving the following:

  • Increased mill output at the same cement fineness
  • Reduced grinding and energy costs
  • Reduced pack set of cement and increased bulk density, leading to easier storage and transport
  • Reduced agglomeration and inter-particle attraction for easier flow characteristics
  • Enhanced grain size distribution for optimized initial and final strengths of cement
  • Improved cement hydration together with higher strength at all ages
  • Reduced clinker factor for optimized cost and CO₂ emissions per tone of cement
  • Impart a high level of water repellency, reducing water absorption and moisture transmission


BATIMIX QS-WPR Series includes the following products:


A variety of products from within this series are available to meet the specific requirements of customers. Products highlighted in bold are featured in the cement additives brochure.
