Raw materials for the building materials industry pose specific demands on how we are able to combine innovation to achieve necessary mineral properties with respect to consistency, colour and reactivity. Keywords such as sustainability and natural purity of the products in applications such as (clay) plasters and technical properties such as the binding capacity of raw materials, play a crucial role when deciding which raw material supplier to go for.
High-performance building materials and sustainable raw material solutions: clay minerals accelerate the development of strength and drying in dry mortars. Special clays and calcined clays from Goerg & Schneider improve the mechanical properties of caulks with lower weights. We also promote sustainable construction with solutions that contain clay minerals as natural fillers for insulation. The fillers also include calcined clays as alternatives to Portland cement, which significantly reduces carbon emissions.
The development of new products for CO2-reduction is one of our main targets. We have outlined this goal in our corporate UN Global Compact goals. Learn more
