Demeter Technologies wishes to inform businesses of the opportunity of the creation of industrial production units for the pozzolanic binder- metakaolin, which can be used in all fields of construction.
Flash calcination technology, developed by Demeter Technologies, allows local businesses, for a manageable investment, the opportunity to become a major player in the production of hydraulic binders.
Following the agreement of the installation of an industrial metakaolin production unit, the technology transfer between Demeter Technologies and the business is implemented.

Various laboratory studies have resulted in the creation of a pozzolanic binder made from mixing metakaolin with additional ingredients.
These studies have also highlighted markets for hydraulic binders for soil treatment, road foundations, in situ or in a plant, cold compound coatings for road surfaces and structures as well as mortars.
In addition openings for the use of Flash metakaolin in the production of compound cements and as additives in concretes have also been highlighted. Studies have also shown uses in treating natural materials for use in structures made from unfired clay.
The Flash metakaolin produced in the Fumel production unit is used daily in a variety of different fields of application :
• Treatment of soils and road foundations built on worksites relating to the requirements of the French Ministry of Infrastructure/Development,
• Ready to use concretes, delivered to worksites,
• Prefabricated concrete (units, beams) which are factory produced,
• Various industrial applications.
These various products are commercialised under the name of Argicem, Argiliant, Argibap, Argistab, and Argichaux. The technical data for these products can be referred to on the website of the company Argeco Development www.argeco.fr.
