Kunal Conchem Surging Ahead

With lot of opportunities in Road and Bridge sector in the country, KCPL has also marched ahead by securing major orders for supplying special grades of admixtures and other construction chemicals for various NHAI and state highway projects spread across the country. One of the biggest achievements for the company in recent times is to supply concrete admixtures and curing compounds to the prestigious TAJ Expressway project of Jaypee Group. The entire 165 km road from Greater-Noida is an expandable 8 lane rigid pavement involving close to 28 Lakh cubic meters of concrete for rigid pavements. In addition to this, there are number of bridges, minor structures, interchanges and culverts resulting another 12 lakh cubic meter of structural concrete.

KCPL claims the single largest vendor for supplying of admixtures to all 13 contractors such as HCI Infrastructure, Vijay Nirman Company, NKC, infrasrastructure, S.P. Singla, H.G. Infrastrcuture, M.G. Contractors, Brahmaputra Infra projects, and C&C constructions.

This is one of the most complex Road development projects in India till date with the entire 8 lane stretch being constructed right from the scratch consisting of numerous under-passes, bridges, flyovers and culverts. KCPL has been able to provide solutions to all complex structures through its extensive range of super-plasticizers. KUANCON-37 SR AND 37 S has been extensively used in most of the structural works. KUNOCON-37S1 has been used very extensively for most of the pre-casting girders ensuring upto 80% strength within 4th day of casting.

For the major part of rigid pavement work, a unique formulation especially designed to work effectively with PPC cement has been introduced. The major challenge in the PQC job was attainment of flexural strength as well as fast setting of the concrete. JP group has employed very high efficiency pavers to lay the dump concrete enabling in speedy and efficient job.

Besides this, company is also working on other major NHAI projects such as Kishangarh-Beawar stretch (Soma Enterprises), Pink city expressway (NH-8, jaipur-Gurgaon), Himalayan expressway project (Parwanoo-zirakpur)-C&C Construction, Vyara-Maharastra Border (Soma Enterprises), Gurgaon-Faridabad 4 laning (Reliance Infrastructure), NHAI’s prestigious Badarpur flyover project (HCC) and many more.

Apart from major NHAI projects, the company is also working with mainline state road development corporations such as HSRDC, MPSRDC, U.P state bridge corporations. With government’s emphasis on the highway sector and considerable improvement of road sector in the country, KCPL is all geared up to avail this opportunity, as one of the leading construction chemical players to be a part of this story.

The biggest challenge is that road development is going on across the country. Various regions have their specific availability of ingredients such as sand, cement, aggregates, so it is possible that one admixture which performs exceptionally well at one place, might not give good results at other places. Hence we need to tailor make our formulations catering to specific needs of the projects. Another major segment of construction chemical products which find huge application in Road projects is Polysulphide sealants (KUNASEAL) as well single component pavement garde Polyurethane sealants for surface joints.

Maintaining its, focus in road infrastructure, company has appointed a senior technical resource each for the states of Bihar, Rajasthan, Maharastra, Karnataka, catering to specific needs for the clients engaged in road development projects in these states, as they cover major share of up-coming new NHAI projects under NHDP-phase 3.

KCPL is also in talks with a US based major construction chemical company to set up manufacturing facility in India, catering especially to asphalt road repairs. With each passing monsoon, the condition of these roads become pathetic and huge craters and pot-holes are visible everywhere. We plan to introduce pre-packaged road repair products in packaging ranging from 500 gms to 1.5 Kgs, enabling smallest repairs at the most distant locations in the country with consummate ease, said the company.
