Cement

Phosphate solutions and products for cement provide decreased drying time and increased product yield.
Condensed phosphates are effective dispersants for clay, limestone and shale in wet-process cement manufacturing. The phosphates act to deflocculate and to lower the viscosity of the raw cement slurries, increasing their homogeneity and fluidity. Higher fluidity enables an increase in the solids content of the slurry, resulting in cost savings in terms of drying time and product yield.

ICL phosphates useful in this field are:

  • Sodium tripolyphosphate
  • Tetrasodium pyrophosphate
  • Sodium hexametaphosphate
  • Tetrapotassium pyrophosphate (as setting retarder for cement products)

These products are marketed with the brand Targon® 32, 34 and 35. Targon® 19 is a specialty retarder for cement-based products that yields a steady consistency of the mortar during the application and the first hours before setting.
