Enhancing strength, durability, and safety in building construction with Resikon Construction Chemical
Pankaj Pokharna, Business Head, Resikon Construction Chemicals speaks about construction chemical solutions and their strength and durability.
What are your different construction chemical solutions and their specific applications?
For the protection of RCC steel in foundations, We provide products to prevent rust on rebars. We offer admixtures for concrete sites or readymix concrete to boost strength and workability, in addition to water-proofing coatings for terraces, walls, water tanks, lavatory buildings, basements, podiums, etc. to stop leaks from these areas and extend the life of the structures.
How do construction chemical solutions enhance the strength and durability of structures? Construction chemicals change the properties of commonly used building materials, enhancing their strength, usability, and surface finish and reduces the likelihood of leaks and cracks, weakening a structure. Construction chemical thus offer complete protection and enhance the useful life of building construction.
What are the safety considerations when handling and using construction chemical solutions? When working with construction chemicals, standard personal protective equipment, including hand gloves, safety goggles, a helmet, and a face mask, should be worn, especially in crowded places. Be careful not to consume the chemicals when using them, and keep them away from your eyes. Keep the materials out of children’s reach; don’t keep them in direct sunlight; cover them with a shed; and shield them from it. To prevent the material within the can itself from setting or gelling, the opened cans must be carefully shut after the needed amount of material has been added. For small areas, Mix the material in small quantities which can be used before the product starts setting.
What are the sustainable alternatives or practises in the construction chemical industry?
There are only sometimes alternatives to the current practices in the building chemical sector. However, one can substitute the current chemicals with equivalent products made of the same or a different base. Alternatively, one can continue using the old, conventional methods, which are still used at many construction sites.
