A New way to Process Cement Reactivity

CHRYSO®ICARE is a new patent-pending innovation that boosts cement compressive strengths to significantly reduce clinker factor and therefore cement CO2 footprint.
CHRYSO®ICARE is a disruptive technology developed into 2 ranges:

  • CHRYSO®ICARE CP for challenging grinding processes
  • CHRYSO®ICARE VRM and Vertical Roller Mills

Innovative cement additives for CO2 reduction

CHRYSO®ICARE patent-pending technology has been developed to support the Cement industry in lowering cement carbon footprint.
CHRYSO®ICARE strength enhancers enable to achieve unequalled performance:

  • Cement extra activation at all ages
  • Improved cement transport properties
  • Energy & production cost savings
  • Reduction of the clinker-to-cement ratio and CO2 emissions

Especially designed for Vertical Roller Mills, CHRYSO®ICARE VRM additive range allows to achieve higher cement compressive strengths by overtaking process limitations:

  • Optimization of mill stability by reducing ΔP and vibrations in the process.
  • Improvement of cement reactivity by reducing water injection.
  • Overall increase of cement compressive strengths at all ages to significantly reduce clinker factor.

CHRYSO®ICARE CP additives provide full cement activation potential by better controlling cement transport properties in ball mill or Horomill®-based processes:

  • Improvement of your cement fineness and particle size distribution by increasing the process efficiency.
  • High increase of productivity by keeping control on cement fluidity.
  • Reduction of your production and energy costs at equal or better cement overall performance.

CHRYSO®ICARE DIAGNOSIS focuses on 4 parameters

Developed by our technical experts, CHRYSO®ICARE DIAGNOSIS confirms the benefits of CHRYSO®ICARE Technology for each plant, according to a prior on-field process assessment and customer needs evaluation.
Tailor-made additives will be designed accordingly to provide you with the optimal cost/performance solutions.


Mill Design

Mill type and configuration as well as particle classification technology are key parameters.



Grinding workshop bottlenecks are carefully assessed at all stages of the process.


Cement composition

Cement composition and SCM quality are analyzed.


Targeted performance

Both cement quality and production requirements strongly drive the design of tailor-made solutions.

Activation of slag blended cements by amines

Cements containing blast furnace slags such as CEM III cements are increasingly used in both precast and ready-mixed concrete to improve the environmental footprint. However, the replacement of clinker by slag at a content varying between 35 and 95 wt% leads to a significant slow-down of cement hydration and consequently to a loss of early […]

LuminTech®, coloured photoluminescent particles for decorative concrete

The introduction of luminescent pigments in materials in order to provide visibility in low light or zero brightness (night, shade, darkness, interior unlit due to an electric failure...) is sought. There are different types of luminescence depending on the excitement: bioluminescence with enzymatic excitation, thermoluminescence with thermal action… Photoluminescent particles have the property of absorbing […]

Improving VRM stability to achieve higher clinker factor reduction

In some specific process conditions (e.g. Vertical Roller Mills), the use of conventional high performance strength enhancers can lead to process limitations. These sides effects are often controlled by reducing the dosing rate of cement additive. However, this leads to a lack of grinding aid in cement to achieve all the benefits from the chemicals. […]
