“Developing and manufacturing the polyurethane molds for this purpose was a challenge in itself, because the necessary draft angles in the narrow tubes require a certain expertise,” explains Schmidt-Rothmeier, who previously worked for the automotive industry for several years and now contributes the knowledge of materials she gained there to the implementation of new ideas for concrete. For the good flow characteristics of self-compacting concrete, Grellroth uses an in-house formulation with a finely matched mixture of additives. “The concrete flows in like honey and comes out almost pore-free,” says Schmidt-Rothmeier. “This means that even difficult geometries can be realized and there is no need to shake the molds for venting,” explains the designer.
“State-of-the-art concretes such as self-compacting concrete are based on complex formulations, the constituents of which must be perfectly matched to meet requirements. This must also be kept in mind when iron oxide pigments are used, whether for small or large structures,” says Oliver Fleschentraeger, Market Segment Manager for Construction in the Inorganic Pigments business unit at LANXESS.
