ADMIXTURES

GUP®-based cement reduces carbon footprint and enhances sustainability

Graphene’s revolutionary impact on the cement industry lies in its ability to enhance sustainability without compromising structural integrity and demonstrates unparalleled strength, flexibility, and conductivity. When incorporated into cement, it reduces the volume of the required material, thereby minimizing carbon emissions inherent in production processes. More significantly, the inclusion of graphene enhances the durability and lifespan of cement structures, reducing the frequency of replacement and the subsequent environmental impact. GUP®-Products are uniquely positioned to enable the cement industry’s transition toward a more sustainable future, offering superior performance characteristics while reducing environmental footprints. Embrace the innovation today for a greener, sturdier tomorrow.

GUP® ADMITURE is a water-based dispersion of graphene GUP® specifically designed to enhance the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of cementitious materials. It is suitable for cement, mortars, repair compounds, autoclaved aerated concrete, recycled concrete aggregate, 3D printable mortars, chalk, and other cementitious materials with easy integration and flexibility in the design of multifunctional materials.

GUP® ADMIXTURE is added to the water used in the process. The optimum dosage level should be determined with specific tests based on the required performance, host matrix characteristics, processing conditions, and presence of other fillers. In general terms, to improve the mechanical properties, we suggest adding to the water a quantity of GUP® ADMIXTURE in the range of 15 – 35 g for each Kg of cement.

Main Advantages of Graphene GUP® Products for Cementitious Materials

Increased Strength

GUP® integration enhances the compressive and tensile strength and the Young’s modulus of cement significantly, creating more robust construction materials

Resistance to Cracking

GUP®‘s unique properties reduces re-bar corrosion and the alkali– silica reaction, a swelling reaction that can result in serious cracking

Superior Surface Finish

GUP®-integrated cement can provide a smoother, harder surface finish, improving aesthetics and wear resistance

Heat Distribution

The thermal conductivity of cement is strongly improved when GUP® is integrated, promoting better heat distribution and reduced thermal cracking and fractures

Less Water Permability

Cement embedded with GUP® exhibits reduced water permeability over 300%

 

 

Energy Saving

Better thermal conductivity results in more energy-efficient buildings, reducing heating and cooling costs

 

Enhanced Durability

The longevity of cement structures is substantially increased. Graphene creates a barrier that protects from the corrosion of reinforcing materials.

Lightweight Materials

The incorporation of GUP® need less cement without compromising strength, enabling more light constructions and saving space

Improved Elasticity

The use of GUP® increases the flexibility of cement, making it less brittle and more accommodating to physical stress

Resilience

GUP®-infused cement shows superior resistance in freeze-thaw cycling and to damage from elements like water, temperature changes, and various chemicals

Material Reduction

Due to the enhanced strength and durability, less cement is required for construction, leading to lower costs and a decrease in environmental impact

Sustainability

GUP®based cement can help achieve sustainability goals in the construction industry, with high reduction of CO2 emission
