Lithium Carbonate Alternatives for Fast Setting Ternary Formulations

Abstract: The demand for lithium compounds is expected to grow driven by electric vehicle batteries and mobile devices. Lithium compound supply will become tighter and prices will continue to increase. Consequently, the supply of lithium compounds is projected to become more limited, leading to a continuous rise in prices. This situation poses a significant challenge for the construction industry in procuring the crucial additive required for fast setting building materials. IMCD experts have found a solution based on non-scarce resources that resembles the acceleration of lithium compounds in fast setting ternary dry mortars. 

In this Experts4Experts solution talk, we share with you the benefits of this innovative product and examine key parameters of Hombicure containing formulations such as setting time, shelf life stability as well as mechanical performance development.  We will report on the latest results of testing and application.
