Kerneos builds dry-mix mortar solutions into European Coatings Show

23.03.2011
Kerneos, a provider of chemicals for use in construction, has announced the launch of TERNAL ® EV and TERNAL® RG-S, which will provide dry-mix mortar manufacturers with two new, innovative technical solutions. Kerneos will showcase these innovations at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg (Germany) from 29 to 31 March 2011.

TERNAL® EV is a novel calcium aluminate binder that allows dry-mix producers to efficiently develop an entire range of self-levelling compounds with reliable and consistent performance. This addresses a common issue for dry-mix producers.

Each individual levelling compound in a range is formulated using multiple binder components, which makes it difficult to achieve a reliable outcome across a whole range of floor-levelling compounds. Each of these products is developed using a single core binder composed of a combination of TERNAL® EV and a suitable calcium sulfate (according to local availability).

The core binder allows for the creation of a wide range of levelling compounds as well as self-levelling compounds, which can be developed quickly through the adjustment of the quantity added to fillers that make up the bulk of typical formulations. (The usual range of additives must still be used in order to fine-tune the performance level.)

TERNAL® EV-based floor coatings and self-levelling floor compounds provide solutions in relation to key issues in the construction industry, such as environmental concerns and the durability of materials.

Calcium aluminates are typically used to produce dry-mix mortars with demanding time-defined performance, often relating to quite precise reactivity profiles, mechanical performance or dimensional stability. These performances can vary according to the time and date of the production of the dry-mix batch in relation to the installation date of the product. This process is widely referred to as ‘dry-mix ageing’. In an effort to dramatically reduce this, Kerneos has developed patented technology, which it has applied to its calcium-based products.

Dry-mix compounds based on this new product have demonstrated improved performance stability over time. Mortars with extended lifespans are also valued by producers exporting mortars (or those with products where stock rotation is low) due to their specialist nature, and also in terms of the advantages they present during the launch of a new mortar on the market.
Kerneos will present its innovative products at the European Coatings Show (Stand 327, Hall 9) in Nuremberg (Germany) from 29 to 31 March of this year.

Kerneos has established itself as the partner of choice for innovations in dry-mix applications. The company is committed to supporting technological development and innovation in the building sector.

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...

Im Focus: Optoelectronic Inline Measurement – Accurate to the Nanometer

Germany counts high-precision manufacturing processes among its advantages as a location. It’s not just the aerospace and automotive industries that require almost waste-free, high-precision manufacturing to provide an efficient way of testing the shape and orientation tolerances of products. Since current inline measurement technology not yet provides the required accuracy, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is collaborating with four renowned industry partners in the INSPIRE project to develop inline sensors with a new accuracy class. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the project is scheduled to run until the end of 2019.
