Jungbunzlauer at ibausil 2015

Jungbunzlauer will present findings of a R&D study regarding the use of gluconates as gypsum set retarder at the International Conference on Building Materials "ibausil", held 16 - 18 September, 2015 in Weimar, Germany.

ibausil is a bi-annual conference on new technological developments for building materials attended by 600 international scientists from academia and industry. Jungbunzlauer has completed a study on the replacement of natural tartaric acid in gypsum spray plaster in a co-operation with leading scientists from Bauhaus Universität in Weimar and from CASEA GmbH, Osterode. The results of the study suggest that tartaric acid can be replaced by special grades of sodium gluconate and glucono-delta-lactone as well as blends of tartaric acid with gluconates. Jungbunzlauer's products and blends will be marketed under the tradename GLUCOSET®.
