Our R&D Centers

Our global and regional R&D facilities are the basis for our innovations.

Global R&D center

Our global R&D center for construction chemicals is located in Trostberg, Germany. This site has a tradition in chemistry of more than 100 years and is the place where the first concrete superplastizcer – Melment – was successfully developed. In Trostberg, our experts work on basic research and new technologies as well as new products and processes for construction chemicals and related system solutions. They serve the innovation chain for admixtures, underground construction and resins of the MBCC Group and manage the patent portfolio as well as global projects.
