Concrete Admixtures for concrete-products industry

Plasticizers

As a pioneer in the development of plasticizers for earth-moist concretes for the production of top-quality, directly demolded concrete block products on fully automated production equipment in the vibro-compaction and pressing process, we offer you a selection of top-quality products.

Our Plasticizers – Made in Germany –

  • accelerates and homogenizes the mold filling 
  • promotes compactibility
