The Chicago area now has a new center on aggregate, mortar, and concrete testing - providing valuable support to North America.
CHRYSO and GCP (Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals) opened a new application lab in Chicago, Illinois, enhancing the company's commitment to delivering customer service and technical expertise. The facility will also serve as the dedicated technical center for Ductilcrete engineered slab systems.
The Chicago lab’s testing capabilities provide customers with hands-on services to see how their materials perform with CHRYSO & GCP products and determine what admixtures and dosage rates will work best for their needs. The CHRYSO & GCP team utilizes the lab to work in partnership with customers in response to the challenges caused by the ever-changing materials used to produce concrete, cements, aggregates, and SCMs. This allows the technical team to deliver solutions to customers for optimized mixtures for increased sustainability and lower cost.
The Chicago lab is a significant milestone in the CHRYSO and GCP integration with Saint-Gobain. “As responsiveness and timely support is essential in our industry, we remain focused on growing our application lab network across the United States and Canada," says Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals North America Senior Director of Innovation Gabor Acs. "The Chicago lab is another resource for our customers, giving them needed technical support, which enables them to make informed decisions and achieve optimal results.”
With the addition of the multi-purpose facility in Chicago, Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals North America now has multiple application labs in North America. The company plans to open additional laboratories across the United States and Canada. This expansion will ensure that North American customers have local access to newly integrated testing facilities and technical support.
