Industries ULMEN is a company dedicated to the manufacture and commercialization of additives for concretes and mortars with headquarters in Chile, branches in Peru, Europe and South Africa.
To satisfy in time and form the expectations of our clients, the applicators of the concrete in works of mining, infrastructure and construction, framed in the concept of Sustainable Construction, that the increasing and empowered social demand, but our own knowledge as specialists of the subject demands.
To be a relevant actor, in our Latin America, contributing to the Sustainable Construction from our speciality: the additives for cements, concretes and mortars. To do this, we concentrate our efforts on forming a group of people capable of attending to manufacturing, internally, and technical assistance, externally to ULMEN
The absolute condition is to deliver non-polluting products to safeguard the environment and people's health during construction and use
"ULMEN S.A." is committed to research, develop and manufacture additives for cement, concrete and mortars, at the highest technological level in the world, satisfying in time and form the expectations of its customers
We agree with them through PPR, rheological properties of concrete, achieved through feedback, quality controls, measurement, monitoring and analysis, based on effectiveness and effectiveness, fundamental pillars of continuous improvement.
Natural consequence will be the generation of resources, necessary for the sustainability and growth of ULMEN, with corporate social responsibility, as a conceptual framework of management and development.
Compartmentalization of the unknown of cement, introducing the world of chemistry to that of concrete allows us to generate different sequential chemical reactions in magnitude and temporality, which determines.
Our strength: The chemistry of concrete
2004 March to October: GAIA trials at El Teniente Mine. Approved in December. Removes silica.
GAIA is presented in “Ninth CANMET/ACI . Polonia” “Self Compacting Concrete with High Early Strenght in Prefabricated Beams for Bridges
Innovar 2007 Argentina.- award for “Pangea”, Silica additive in nanoscale ideal for cementing oil wells, stabilized and liquid.
2007: It confirms GAIA as number 1 on a global scale in autocompactants. Tests in PRAINSA, Zaragoza, España.
2008: After 1 year and 9 months of testing in cementation laboratories, nanotechnology additives are applied to oil / gas wells. The first well was 6 kms deep.
2008: It develops GAIA Shotcrete, eliminating the use of microsilice with almost ZERO cm of permeability.
From December 2011 to date, we supply without interruption, to the Horizon mine.
2011 Colegio Ingenieros Lima: Nanotechnology in concrete.
2012 Plasticizer for shotcrete with workability more than 4 hours, with which we won the tender for the New Level Mina-El Teniente.
2013 Start of the construction of the Plant in Lima.
It began in 2000 in Chile, concentrating initial efforts in the area of research and development, resulting in the first nano additive for concrete on a global scale at the end of 2003 at the theoretical level, and at the end of 2004 in the commercial area, which generates The opening of branches under a societal framework, in Europe and South Africa between 2007 and 2008.
In Peru, we supply more than 20 pre-mixed concrete plants
Since 2006 at the national level, and we have been present in civil works and mining projects since 2010.
Our headquarters have been ISO 9001-2015 certified since 2006 in Chile and in Peru since 2018.
