PCI can look back on a successful history of 70 years. In 1950, at the beginning of the Economic Miracle era, the Augsburg engineer Karl Strehle and Hans W. Schulz, a businessman from Frankfurt, established Poly-Chemie-Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH. One year later, they already achieved a breakthrough in the marketplace with the legendary product PCI Emulsion. The company founders demonstrated an outstanding feeling for the marketplace. Their mortar additive was the construction material that the building industry needed in its boom era. The PCI brand had been born.
"Knowing what the market needs". This is the key to PCI's success. In 1959, PCI FT Klebemörtel was launched, the first cementitious tile adhesive for thin bed laying. Other pioneering products followed, such as the first epoxy resin-based solvent-free primer and products with nano and lightweight mortar technology. PCI was also a pioneer in waterproofing materials and laying products with a waterproofing function. The first flexible tile adhesive in powder form from PCI took the company to market leadership in tile fixing products in 1981.
The demands of the marketplace are continually changing, calling for new, appropriate product solutions. Currently, we are responding to the trend towards individualization with a joint grout available in hundreds of different colors, PCI Durapox Premium Multicolor. For professional color advice, we have developed the digital color measuring device PCI Colorcatch Nano. The growing demand for low-emission construction materials is reflected by our sustainable product range. Clear and compact core ranges make product selection easy. At the same time, we offer individual solutions for every special application.
