Chryso, GCP Open Chicago Application Lab

Chryso & GCP (Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals) announced the opening of a new application lab in Chicago that will provide timely and valuable support to North American customers.

The facility focuses on aggregate, mortar and concrete testing, and will also serve as the dedicated technical center for Ductilcrete engineered slab systems. It is equipped and staffed to provide hands-on services so customers can see how their materials perform with Chryso or GCP admixtures and pinpoint best dosage rates. 

The Chicago lab enables representatives of both brands to help customers respond to challenges caused by ever-changing materials used in concrete, cement, supplementary cementitious material and aggregate production; and, deliver optimized mixtures with sustainability characteristics.

“Our new lab in Chicago is another significant milestone in the integration of Chryso and GCP within Saint-Gobain, bringing our technical expertise closer to valued customers,” said Saint-Gobain Construction Chemicals North America Senior Director of Innovation Gabor Acs. “As responsiveness and timely support are essential in the industry, we remain focused on growing our application lab network across the United States and Canada.” 

The company plans to open additional laboratories, Acs added, ensuring that North American customers have local access to newly integrated testing facilities and technical support.
