Innovation & products
Often the concrete is still packaged and used in a completely empirical way, without taking into account the rather in-depth knowledge that has been achieved. Moreover, in Italy, the exuberant presence in constructions of all kinds has almost never coincided with the rule of art; so much so that the saying of “invasion of cement” is recurrent to define all the most diverse ugliness and urban speculation, a legacy of previous decades. To change these clichés, to convince that expertly packaged concrete is a noble material, able to challenge the wear of time, and to promote a true technical culture, in Italy but also internationally, has certainly contributed to the work carried out by researchers at the laboratory of the current BASF Construction Chemicals Italy.
