MasterCem: Cement grinding aids additives
What is MasterCem?
BASF’s MasterCem product family encompasses an extensive range of grinding aids, performance enhancers and specialty products. These additives are specially formulated to greatly improve the performance parameters of cement by increasing production efficiency and quality, while at the same time minimizing costs.
Why is MasterCem a unique solution for cement producers?
Our innovations meet the current and emerging requirements of cement manufacturers and are adapted to work with a wide variety of composite cements. In addition, products are consistently backed by the technical support of BASF’s globally connected cement experts.
How does using the MasterCem product range improve cement producers' competitive edge?
MasterCem cement additives amplify grinding efficiency, resulting in a higher mill throughput and lower the clinker factor, with an overall reduction in CO2 emissions. Our performance enhancers modify and elevate cement’s properties, improving its strength, workability and flow and ultimately upgrading cement’s usability and durability.
