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 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.About Kerneos

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
