Mary Page Bailey

BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; opened a new production plant for concrete admixtures in Kazan, Russia. Together with the facility inaugurated in Podolsk near Moscow in 2012, BASF now supplies the Russian construction sector with a broad range of concrete admixtures from two production sites. At its Kazan site, BASF manufactures 20 varieties of concrete admixtures, including latest‑generation products based on polycarboxylate ether (PCE) technology. Production focuses on admixtures for accelerated concrete curing and prolonged workability even at low temperatures. Specifically geared toward supporting the Russian construction sector, these admixtures can for example help to extend construction phases even during longer cold spells. In addition, the concrete admixtures are specifically adjusted to their respective areas of application – which include ready‑mix concrete, precast concrete elements, road pavings, and manufactured concrete products such as paving stones. A dedicated laboratory analyzes raw materials and finished products locally.
