Demand: efficient use of raw materials and energy
Performance: grinding aids for the cement industry

The manufacture of cement is highly energy intensive. Producers therefore look for ways to lower energy consumption, and as a result the carbon dioxide emissions of their processes. For a long time Sika has supplied grinding aids that accelerate the grinding process, thereby reducing energy consumption in cement manufacturing by around 10%. A new generation of products gives the grinding aids additional functions, so that the quality of the cement is improved during grinding.
