The main focus of the building chemistry industry is to optimize the characteristics of building materials by adding chemical admixtures, depending on the desired application.
Further on the target is to optimize production processes and to reduce costs as a consequence.
- The building chemistry includes a wide research area, like e.g.:
- the reaction of building materials with several substances.
- the use of different chemicals, like glue, sealing materials and color coatings
- the chemical reactions during the setting process of cement respectively concrete.
