NANOSEED: High-performance additives for concrete and mortars

Nanoseed

PROBLEM/OPPORTUNITY

One of the aspects that is becoming more relevant in the concrete market is cement forging speed. For example, in the prefabricated sector, halving the forging time would result in doubling production.

Similarly, hardening accelerators will become even more important in the coming years with the anticipated eruption of 3D printing technology.

Potential Market

  • Prefabricated concrete and mortars. The consumption of cement hardening additives is estimated to be: ​
    • Europe: 825.000 T of additive / year
    • Spain: 35.000 T of additive / year
  • NANOSEED can therefore be a business of over €M at the fifth year.
