Innovative products


Create products which are resistant and easy to use, respond to client expectations, anticipate future needs: these are just some of the challenges which Lafarge's R&D teams face as they work to develop innovative products with high added value for the Group's customers.


The launch of Roadcem to meet the needs of a wide range of road stabilisation demonstrates the role played by R&D in the creation of increasingly innovative products for customers. Depending on the specific site conditions, Roadcem is suitable for:

  • stabilisation of road base, sub-base and sub-grade materials
  • soils with either low or moderate plasticity
  • insity (including deep lift) stabilisation or pugmill blending.


The Group has developed concretes which are easier to use and make life easier on building sites. These concretes are also more resistant, more durable and more esthetically pleasing. Discover ArteviaTM, Agilia® and the Ultra Series.


Synia®, the first plasterboard with 4 tapered edges, and PLAtec® a made-to-measure plasterboard solution, are just 2 of the Group's gypsum products. Learn how easy they are to use and discover their esthetic properties.
