A success story with a future
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.
A pioneer in the marketplace

"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 from PCI for indoor and outdoor use, PCI Flexmörtel, took the company to market leadership in tile fixing products in 1981.

Creating living spaces and making dreams come true together

The demands of the marketplace are continually changing, calling for new, appropriate product solutions. One of the current trends is e.g. the individualization. In order to be able to design rooms individually and exclusively, we develop products such as a grout in hundreds of colors - according to individual customer requirements for unique designs and spatial effects. With our joint grout solutions, we offer the right joint color for every living space - in the color of the selected tile, contrasting with it, corresponding to other colors in the room or as an "invisible" joint for a harmonious color gradient between multicolored glass mosaic. According to the personal taste of our customers. Also important are building materials with which processors can technically implement trends, e.g. adhesive mortar which are particularly suitable for laying the ever larger ceramic tiles. We are responding to the trend of making basements livable with new waterproofing systems that work quickly and reliably. We develop very low-emission products that building owners are increasingly demanding as part of "healthy living" - a development to which we, as a manufacturer of construction chemicals, feel committed anyway.

The right service

With our extensive range of service tools, we are strengthening the interaction already close between manufacturers, craftsmen and suppliers of building materials. The live chat enables craftsmen to receive quick and individually tailored answers to acute challenges on the construction site. With the PCI Academy, we pass on our knowledge in theory and practice in seminars. This is rounded off by our wide range of e-learning courses with product and training videos or the PCI theme week. Our customers appreciate these additional services and benefit from them - another added value that also intensifies the cooperation.

Convincing products

PCI products are used for a variety of different areas and projects in various fields: in private buildings, in swimming pools and spas as well as in commercial establishments and industrial plants, zoos and parks.

Every day, about 84,000 m² of living space in Germany are tiled using PCI adhesives. Our products have been used on the largest fish ladder in the Netherlands, on the listed Maggi water tower in Singen and on the peak of the Predigtstuhl mountain in the Bavarian Alps. PCI products are simply convincing. See for yourself!
