C&D Technical Applications consultancy expertise

The technical development and applications team at C&D Technical Applications consists of experts from various occupational (chemical and polymer technologists, process engineers, building product chemists and agronomists) who, through their innovative capacity, technical knowledge and expertise are able to precisely match the application of our products to the customer’s specific requirement.

Endless possibilities from nature.

For us, wheat is the basis of everything we need for developing high-performance products. The wheat is first ground and then the wheat endosperm is broken down into its components through the addition of fresh spring water and application of heat. This mixture is then sieved and centrifuged to obtain the wheat starches, proteins, fibres and extracts.

The products obtained in this way are refined during further processing steps such as mixing, extrusion and modification into highly functional products specially refined for our customers. In doing so we fully utilise the ingredients of the wheat grain, making use of all its constituent parts.
