Over two decades of innovation
Neocrete D5 products are based on innovation and constant improvements spanning 20 years.
Since 2018, Neocrete has worked with leaders in the New Zealand concrete industry and Callaghan Innovation to develop a low-carbon concrete solution for New Zealand, based on D5.
Innovation in New Zealand has focused on low carbon, high performance concrete. Neocrete has worked with Concretec, Higgins Concrete, Allied Concrete, LT McGuinness, eHaus and Max Raft to test and improve the performance of D5 Green. Callaghan Innovation has supported this innovation since 2019 (read the story here).
Early versions of D5 were first developed in Russia by Dr Oleg Bazoev, while working towards his PHD.
After significant ongoing research, in the late 90s Oleg set up Tokar Co. Ltd which focused on developing multifunctional additives for concretes. These additives are known as the “D5” family.
Since then, Dr Oleg Bazoev has registered 8 patents and 2 “know hows”, won multiple international innovation awards and published a number of scientific papers. In 2002, the International Academic Committee (IAACC) awarded Oleg with the professional degree of Doctor of Technology and Engineering.
The mission to improve the performance of D5 has become a life-long pursuit for Oleg, when not on the phone to Zarina helping grow Neocrete in New Zealand.
