Cement, Gypsum, Mortars and Compounds

Spreading usability

From concrete and gypsum to joint compounds, mortars and tile cements, Ashland spreads the wealth of its knowledge and sophisticated chemistry across applications for use in both commercial and residential buildings.  We continue to push the limits to find just the right balance between usability and workability with strength and integrity to save you both time and energy, which, when saved, has a positive impact on your bottom line. The combination of Ashland products, technology and solutions creates a useable and functional palette of options to easily spread success and cement your future success.

Although there are many different formulations for creating gypsum, cement, mortars and other similar products, a common set of desired properties, including water retention, adhesion and workability, exists for all products.  The ongoing challenge is to balance the need for spreadability and workability, that enhance the usability and application properties, with minimal sag resistance to keep the product where it's needed at a consistent level.  So whether your challenge deals with joint compounds, masonry, mortar, gypsum or concrete, Ashland combines products that manage the physical properties of aqueous systems with technology and testing to provide solutions for a wide array of applications.  Ashland products can help achieve desired functional outcomes through rheology control, water retention, adhesive strength, binding power, film formation, deposition and suspension and emulsification action to maximize the benefits while minimizing the challenges. The solvers at Ashland can help you select the best products and optimize your formulations to maximize the usability and integrity of your products to provide the best overall outcome. With a global network of sales as well as R&D facilities, Ashland provides solutions in usability building and construction solutions around the world.
