Lafarge R&D teams use sophisticated technology to study the structure of materials at the nanoscale, with almost infinitely small objects that range from 1 to 100 billionths of a meter in size.
Nanoscale observation enables us to:
- see what makes a material tough, strong or durable,
- understand its underlying physical and chemical properties.
The study of building materials at the nanoscale enables Lafarge to improve the performance of its existing products. It also allows the development of even more sophisticated products offering new possibilities for architects and engineers
