Construction chemicals are of increasing significance to the construction industry as they relate to flexibility via their ability to regulate and enhance the bodily and chemical compounds of structures such as compressive strength, sturdiness, etc.
The construction industry in most of the regions is driving strong demand for construction chemicals such as admixtures, concretes, waterproofing chemicals, adhesives, etc. There is plenty of growth in emerging economies like India as the government is investing more in infrastructure as well as a housing development.
Construction chemicals are of increasing significance to the construction industry as they relate to flexibility via their ability to regulate and enhance the bodily and chemical compounds of structures such as compressive strength, sturdiness, the surface end, and resistance to detrimental climatic and operating situations, according to different markets.
Many chemical compounds and waterproofing materials are designed to improve workability, overall performance, and the compatibility of different construction substances, in addition, to protect construction materials and finished structures. Some of them are:
>> Masterseal: Masterseal waterproofing and sealants are formulated to stop water leakage and moisture in industrial, commercial and residential buildings that have new as well as existing structures. Masterseal was introduced by BASF South Asia which provides a tough, long-lasting waterproofing membrane.
>> Dr. Fixit: Dr. Fixit from Pidilite industries, is the best waterproofing solution for building and repairing homes. Apart from the waterproofing solution, the product range comprises of sealants, tile fixing, coatings, paints, etc.
>> Waterproofing for Bridge decks: To increase the durability of concrete bridges, Sika provides the best waterproofing solutions that prevent damage to the concrete or to the embedded steel.
>> KEM Proof 87: KEM Proof 87 was launched by Chembond Chemicals that has good resistance to different types of weather and sunlight. KEM Proof provides a smooth, durable, waterproof and protective membrane.
>> Proofex 3000: Fosroc is a leading international manufacturer of construction chemicals with a wide range of products and brands that also includes Proofex with others. Proofex is used as a waterproofing material that is flexible and has a high-performance membrane to keep the concrete intact.
>> Newcoat Cool & Newcoat Ezee: Pidilite has come up with topcoats in their product range: Newcoat Cool and Newcoat Ezee. These are used as terrace waterproofing and to prevent terrace leakage issues.
>> Zentrifix Elastic by Mc-Bauchemie: Zentrifix Elastic is best suited for infrastructures like dams, bridges, tunnels, and hydraulic structures. Zentrix Elastic is also suitable for chloride attacks.
>> Polyureasystem: Polyurea coatings are used for waterproofing various structures like concrete, industrial structures, etc. It is convenient to use polyurea as it is resistant to many chemicals.
