Showcasing GlucoSol at World of Concrete

If you’re like us, 2015 is off to a hectic pace. In less than two weeks we’ll be exhibiting at World of Concrete in Las Vegas, showcasing our line of GlucoSol® products and discussing the advantages starch-based ethers bring to cement based mineral systems. This is our first time exhibiting at the event and we are confident GlucoSol will be well received by attendees.

We custom developed GlucoSol products to deliver a wide array of performance advantages for products including self-leveling concretes, plasters, tile cements, masonry, floor leveling compounds and external insulation finishing systems. The main functional property enhancements include:

  • Rheology modification and thickening
  • Enhanced workability
  • Water retention
  • Open time/Working time
  • Sag Resistance
  • Bond/Adhesion
  • Decreased stickiness
  • Improved pump ability for spray-on mortars

GlucoSol products also exhibit unique hydration profiles that allow the individual particles to briefly wet-out prior to rapid hydration of the polymer. This helps eliminate the formation of gel agglomerates typical of other water-soluble polymers.

If you’ll be at World of Concrete and would like to learn more, we hope you’ll stop by Booth S12820. Either Jay, Cory or I will be there to review your specific formulations and how we can help you achieve your performance goals. You can also send me an email if you would like to schedule a specific time to meet. See you in Vegas!
