was begun in 1946, by Mr. Peter N. Aldred, in Perth, Western Australia.
The first Cementaid company was registered in 1954, and the company,
while remaining privately owned, has grown to be a small mulitnational.
Cementaid products have now been installed in 38 countries around the
world. Cementaid invented and proved the concept of permanently,
inherently DRY structural concrete, using the Everdure Caltite System of
hydrophobic pore-blocking ingredients, thereby eliminating any need for
conventional membrane 'waterproofing' of structures, and delivering
design life durability without maintenance.
became the Cementaid group of Companies in 1954 was established in
Perth, Australia in 1946. As a result of the advanced performance and
value of its admixtures and surface impregnations, technical service
centres and production plants soon spread throughout Australia and
expanded into Asia, then Europe, North America and the Middle East. The
Group is dedicated to helping produce better quality concrete, and a
number of products now acceptable world-wide had their world origin in
our group's research laboratories. We have specialised in original
research, development and manufacture of reliable concrete enhancing
products, our sole business. Our credo has always been and remains:

Message from the Founder and Governing Director
is the most commonly used construction material in the world today. Its
low cost and versatility fuel its increasing use throughout the
construction industry. At the same time, many structures have also
demonstrated the deficiencies of concrete, including shrinkage, low
tensile strength, cracking, "dusting" of abrasive cement particles,
absorption of deleterious materials and poor durability amongst
simple-to-use technical products enable designers and users to reduce
and even eliminate such problems, or to enhance certain properties of
concrete or mortar. These range from specialised chemical resistance,
water-tightness, extreme resistance to abrasion and impact, or any one
of a dozen properties where higher performance qualities are desired.
like concrete, is a general purpose material. The modern steel mill
technician selects different admixtures to give his steel special merits
for the uses to which it is to be applied. With our proven technical
aids, the modern concrete designer can also enhance particular concrete
properties to meet the specific needs of his industry.
