In Aditivos Cerámicos S.L., we are a company dedicated to the development and manufacture of additives of various kinds.
Our continued growth during more than 30 years has been the consequence of a firm commitment to innovation and the search for new opportunities.
As a result of this policy, we have diversified into multiple industrial sectors but always maintaining chemical formulations and research as the central axis of our business, always maintaining firm positions on quality and sustainability.
Since our inception, we have always believed in and been committed to innovation and research as axes where we can consolidate the growth and future development of the group’s companies. As a result of this policy, our family of companies has become a national benchmark in the development and implementation of research projects, both at national and European level. The conviction that investment in R + D + i is the way to guarantee sustainable and prolonged growth has led us to cooperate and lead high-scale projects.
For all these reasons, the center for industrial technological development CDTI has matched our request to carry out the ANTISLIP proyect, which aims to develop new additives with anti-slip functionality for different applications, in the ceramic sector, specifically in tiles and shower plates.
It is worth mentioning that in the current market these innovative products do not exist, since the technology used is totally new in the sector and has been developed in such a way that it can be applied directly by spraying or being integrated into inkjet inks in the case of tiles.
In Aditivos Cerámicos S.L., we are confident that the success of the project will be a novelty at the sector level, since current techniques either focuses on the preparation of surface roughness or on the wear of the surface to make it more porous, so it is difficult for these surfaces to control the intensity of the anti-slip property. Also, these surfaces have a limited duration, while the new additives under development will allow selecting the desired anti-slip with an unlimited duration, they are easy to clean and will provide greater realism to the pieces.
