Nubicem B series complies with the European Standard EN 12878:2005 test requirements for use in the Construction industry!


10/11/2010

We at Nubiola, being aware of the special needs in the construction industry, want to demonstrate the suitability of the Nubicem B series for these demanding applications.

Our Nubicem B series, the cement-compatible Ultramarine Blue, fully passed the test requirements described by the European standard EN 12878:2005.

  • Setting time determination
  • pH determination
  • Mechanical Resistance
  • Resistance to Alkalis
  • Loss of ignition
  • Chloride content
  • Water soluble content

This means that Nubicem complies with the specific methods described in the above mentioned standard to ensure that the pigment can be used in the coloring of building materials based on cement and/or lime without affecting their properties.

The tests were carried out in the independent APPLUS+ laboratories in Barcelona. APPLUS+ is a leading testing, inspection, certification and technological service company with implementation in different sectors such as automotive and construction.

Nubicem B series is the new range of Ultramarine Blue pigments specifically designed for being in contact with cementitious materials, because it is chemically protected against the interaction with cement. Nubicem was launched in March 2009, and it opens up new possibilities of coloration in the construction market and is recommended for applications such as pavement blocks, decorative mortar, grouts and other related applications.

For further information on the tests done and the results obtained please contact Dani Lladó, Technical Development Manager in Construction (d.llado@nubiola.com).
