Silicates are true all-rounders in the field of building materials: they are used as binders in cement and mortar, for example, but are also used in joint systems to prevent the formation of green deposits. In the coatings sector, silicates ensure the water resistance of facade paint.
Depending on the application, liquid silicates, spray-dried silicates and also ground types are used.
We have been a market leader in Europe for many years, particularly in the field of ground water glass.
Other examples of applications for our products in the construction sector include iron oxide as a coloring component in plaster systems and ferrosilicon as an additive in industrial floor coverings, as well as the use of zirconium silicate in well construction.
