Global Statistics Representing Construction Chemical Market Scenario

Construction chemicals are the additivities that provides additional durability and functionality to various structures and are most commonly used with cement, concrete, and other construction materials. Products are primarily applied to achieve certain desired characteristics in concrete such as high compressive strength, high workability, and high performance and endurance parameters to meet the requirement of complexity of modern structures. Admixtures are used to alter properties such as heat of hydration, water reduction, dispersion and air-entrainment, accelerating or retarding setting time, impermeability and durability factors. Whereas, hardeners are used with structures to seal them against moisture and making them dustproof. These chemicals aid in moisture retention, provides enhanced bond strength, increases crack resistance and reduces drying time of mortar, improves the appearance and yield with same quantity of construction materials.
