From pure raw material, Omya Idwala SA offers tailor made mineral solutions that address the innovative and sustainable needs of the construction industry.  Today, Omya Idwala SA’s Ground Calcium Carbonate (GCC) in the form of various Betokulu and Betoflow® grades is bringing multiple benefits to flooring, technical mortars & concrete.

Focusing on the required characteristics of the final cement-based product, Omya Idwala SA adds value through its range of functional Mineral Plasticizers® which provide strong benefits like improved packing, stability, water-cement ratio and therefore an optimization of the admixture efficiency. This way Omya Idwala SA covers both, economic and ecological optimization of the cement-based compositions.


​Self-Leveling Mortars (SCM)
