CEMEX High Performance Concrete

Our portfolio includes a variety of products in line with the market, which undergo constant quality assessment. They are not only used in the construction of housing and commercial buildings, but rather also for traffic infrastructure, such as motorways, bridges, airports or waterways. The product cost of high-performance concrete can be more than offset by significant productivity and performance gains. CEMEX self-compacting concrete can flow from a single, is self-levelling and eliminates the need to hire expensive vibration equipment, the cost of placing the concrete can be significantly reduced. In addition to the cost benefits there is also the improved on-site health and safety to take into consideration.

Our Service

In each CEMEX country, we will provide you access to our highly experienced technical team who will be able to create bespoke mixes for all your ready-mix concrete needs. Our technical teams have a vast experience of producing unique mixes for individual jobs, and can facilitate issues such as corrosive ground conditions, extreme weather conditions and high strength requirements. CEMEX will work to your specification, or if requested provide suggestions to ensure that we meet the specific needs of your project.

About Omya

Omya is a leading global producer of industrial minerals, mainly additives and pigments derived from Calcium Carbonate and dolomite, and a worldwide distributor of specialty chemicals.

For centuries, builders knew about the advantageous properties of Calcium Carbonate for Cement Based Applications, such as concrete. Today, Omya Calcium Carbonate fines (CCFs) in the form of various Betocarb® grades and Betoflow® are the preferred mineral plasticizers for concrete products such as paving stones, tubes and sewage tanks, as well as in readymixed and pre-cast concrete. Omya has a long and successful track record in the concrete and construction segment, making its range of Betocarb® and Betoflow® products a name from North & South America and Europe.

Omya Calcium Carbonates provide clear value propositions for various applications in the field of cement based systems. Focusing on the required characteristics of the final product, Omya adds value through its range of functional minerals. For instance, in technically complex systems such as high performance concretes, our mineral plasticizers provide strong benefits like an improved water-cement ratio and therefore an optimization of the admixture efficiency. On the bottom line, Omya products make a concrete composition more economical and ecological.

UltraTest GmbH started its activities in ultrasonic testing more than 60 years ago, founded by the ultrasound pioneer Professor Steinkamp.

Since then, the company focuses on non-destructive testing of all kinds of material:

  • Any material that undergoes a setting process (e.g. cement, mortar, gypsum, concrete, adhesive systems)
  • Construction chemicals, additives
  • 3D concrete printing
  • Heat insulation and render systems
  • Refractories, castables
  • Food industry
  • Tire industry

Initially, the company designed test systems to examine solid materials and to detect cracks in concrete. Over the years it became a focus to monitor the setting behaviour of fresh material.

In the meantime, the laboratory system IP-8 is in the market for over 10 years and in use at numerous R&D and QA laboratories worldwide. In addition, with the mobile version BP-700 Pro it is possible to perform similar measurements at any place outside the lab.

Besides optimization of the ultrasonic data acquisition process, UltraTest put special efforts in the user interface, an intuitive software called UltraTestLab. This software bases on National Instrument's LabView and has been improved by many features, often following customers' ideas.

UltraTest is successful with its ultrasonic test equipment, because the advantages for the users, compared to traditional measuring methods, are convincing:

  • Precise display of the setting process enables a new era of product development
  • Immediately visible results are one of various reasons for saving time and cost
  • Exact reproducibility of measurement results allows identification of deviations at an early stage
  • Easy cleaning and refilling of the measuring moulds is a key to permanent use
  • Special tools such as e.g. graphic marks and envelope make the system ideally suitable for quality assurance and production

In the meantime, more than 1,500 ultrasonic test devices have been sold in over 60 countries on all continents.

UltraTest offers training classes for new users, either as online training or on site at the customer's place.

UltraTest's products are completely designed and manufactured in Germany.
