Tartaric Acid

BTA 3400 DL/L

Tartaric acid and its derivatives are very often utilized as retarding agents for gypsum and aluminate cements. The use of tartaric acid and its derivatives as setting regulators is also indispensable in ternary binder systems.
For applications that require processing in machine mortars, a very finely ground variant of natural tartaric acid is available with added industrial-grade anti-caking agents.
Cream of tartar is characterized by its particularly good storage stability. The product is therefore especially suitable for use in retarding admixtures that are only used sporadically.
