Industrial Specialties

Construction & Infrastructure

We have a broad product line for construction and infrastructure applications. Our phosphoric acid, polyphosphoric acid (PPA), and other phosphates provide key functionalities to improve bonding, dispersion, and uniformity in construction materials. Our products help increase safety, product performance, and manufacturing efficiency in cement, concrete, wall board, refractory materials, paints, coatings, and asphalt roofing.

Why Use Our Construction & Infrastructure Ingredients

Safety & Performance

  • Reduce H2S exposure in employees working with asphalt
  • Improve bonding in refractory materials and concrete
  • Reduce rutting, stripping, fatigue and thermal cracking in asphalt

Manufacturing Efficiency

  • Improve dispersion to increase pumpability of raw cement slurries "wet" process
  • Increase uniformity, reduce drying time, and reduce labor and handling costs in fast-setting cements
