Construction Chemicals

Construction chemicals are a niche group of chemicals used in residential, non-residential and non-building structures. They can be used in ongoing construction projects to enhance the speed or in new projects to impart strength and durability.

There are numerous benefits of construction chemicals:

  • Minimizing the quantity of cement and water required
  • Adding or augmenting chemical as well as physical properties (e.g., cross-linking and phase change from liquid to solid)
  • Increasing concrete quality and performance

Bridgedots has developed a wide range of advanced construction and building materials for clients across the globe.Our team has extensive R&D expertise in construction chemicals to develop new products in categories such as:

  • Concrete Admixture
  • Waterproofing Materials & Membranes
  • Grouts
  • Protective Coatings
  • Highway Repairs
  • Adhesives & Sealants
1. Water Proofing Coating – PU Based (2014-2015)

4. Self-Hardening Mortar – (2014)

For a client based in Europe, Bridgedots has developed an innovative paving and kerbing mix (mortar). The novel technology has enhanced strength and water permeability. It is labor saving, and takes less than 24 hours for hardening, thereby reducing the time taken for the area applied to be ready for use.

The product is based on sand/quartz and polymeric binder. It has a shelf life of over six months, with consistent and stable strength after hardening. The technology has been commercialized, and the product is now available in the market.

It is a sand based product. It is a highly water permeable pavement fixing mortar that allows almost all quantities of rainwater to seep into the ground. Due to the open porous structure of this product all the requirements for a water permeable and thus environmentally friendly pavement fixing mortar are fulfilled. Ex – Joint It, Rompox Easy, VDW 800

5. Crystalline Waterproofing Additive– (2014-2015)

Water seepage in mineral substrates, leads to carbonation and this is a natural enemy to the durability of any structure. Crystalline Waterproofing product produces the permeability-reducing crystals or catalyses unreacted concrete components that result in a crystalline lattice that lowers concrete porosity. The active ingredients react with concrete minerals to form insoluble crystals, which fill out cracks, pores and voids up to a width of 400 microns. This crystalline growth takes place deep inside the concrete structure up to nearly 1 meter from the point of application. Water molecules (and a wide range of chemicals) now can no longer pass through the concrete. However, air can still pass, allowing the concrete to breathe. This avoids the build-up of vapor pressure.

Example – Xypex, Kryton and Penetron

6. Paraffin Based Concrete Curing Agent (2018)

Water-based, white-pigmented concrete curing compounds are wax-based dispersions with selected white pigments. When properly applied, It forms a premium-grade membrane, which optimizes water retention. The white pigment reflects the sun’s rays to help keep the concrete surface cooler and prevent excessive heat buildup.

Specs: Type 2 Product – Based on Waxes. Class A- Pigmented White (Based on TiO2 ) product.)

Application :

  • Ideal for application on exterior, horizontal surfaces, such as highways, airports, and street and curb paving.
  • Not recommended for residential applications.
  • The product provides optimum curing when protection from the sun’s heat is desired.

Example – Similar to – WR Meadows- 1600-white-concrete-curing-compound.
