Construction

We help to build your success

Heat insulation made from expanded polystyrene or polyurethane, as well as sealants, carpet adhesives and cable sheaths – modern construction chemistry boosts quality of life. First, though, it has to prove itself in the raw environment between the mixer and the roof timbering: simple, economical and with no cause for complaint – particularly in light of strict standards and legislation. TER Chemicals is very familiar with these challenges. We offer additives and raw materials for products that really do make work at the building site easier for you and your customers.

F.A.Q.

Many different construction chemicals are required when it comes to building a structure. Whether it is paint, joint sealants or tile cement - chemical products and additives are used in the construction industry for protection, waterproofing and repair and thus significantly optimize a building's quality.

We are here to answer the most important questions concerning construction chemicals to help you in the construction of highly comfortable buildings.

Construction chemicals are divided into admixtures and chemical additives. Admixtures are used to optimize the physical and chemical properties of inorganic construction materials. For instance, they can make concrete harder, more durable and more resistant to pressure. Moreover, admixtures can affect a material's abrasion resistance, hardness, bulk density, chemical resistance, compressive strength, bending tensile strength and so on.

Chemical additives further improve the properties of a material, for example, by speeding up or slowing down concrete's curing time. Plasticizers, sealants, release agents and air-entraining agents are some examples of additives commonly used in concrete and mortar.

We supply the following types of construction chemicals:

  • Additives (e.g. dispersants, emulsifiers)
  • Binders (e.g. dispersion powders, polymer dispersions)
  • Cellulose ethers
  • Emulsifiers (e.g. polyetheramines)
  • Fillers (e.g. glass beads, calcium carbonate)
  • Resins (e.g. epoxy resins)
  • Food additives (e.g. thickeners, preservatives)
  • Polyvinyl alcohols
  • Polyglycols (e.g. polyetheramines)
  • Rheology modifiers (e.g. pyrogenic silica)

Thousands of years ago, buildings were constructed using pure natural materials. But nowadays, studies have shown that chemical reactions can greatly enhance the performance of such materials. 

Modern construction chemicals are predominantly products and additives that are largely based on synthetic chemicals, meaning industrial synthesis is essential for their production. As a result, the construction chemical sector incorporate elements of both civil and chemical engineering.

Construction chemicals generally refer to the following products:

  • Concrete and concrete repair products
  • Concrete and mortar additives
  • Wood preservatives
  • Flame retardants
  • Sealants
  • Adhesives
  • Primers
  • Paints
  • Plastics
  • Coatings
  • Construction solutions
  • Surface protection
  • Wall fillers
  • Impregnating agents
  • Silicone
  • Grout
  • and much more...
  • The primary purpose of adding construction chemicals is to protect, waterproof or repair buildings. For example, caulking compounds help close up cracks, epoxy resins are used to bind components together firmly, and coatings are applied to protect structures against environmental influences and dirt.

    Many modern buildings, roads, bridges and tunnels would not have been possible without the highly diverse field of construction chemicals. Today, these chemicals are added to almost every building material to enhance strength and safety. Performance plays a crucial role in this regard because the use of construction chemicals increases the sector's efficiency and prolongs a building's lifespan. As cities become denser and rural regions continue to industrialize, demand is going to keep rising for materials that are easy to work with, economical, safe and durable.

    TER Chemicals is highly committed to the continual development and optimization of construction chemicals made by various manufacturers. Therefore, we approach modern construction chemicals with our extensive experience and expertise, and tackle the challenges posed by stringent standards and regulations.
