Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways

Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways
The roadways are the lifeline of our country and the development of road infrastructure has played a very important role in faster development of the Indian economy and so has been the role of FAIRMATE to contribute its mite.

FAIRMATE was one of the initial entrants into this development of National infrastructure by making Concrete roads joining the Golden quadrilateral. FAIRMATE was able to bag its first order of admixture from Shapporji Pallonji Co. Ltd. In the year 1998 for the coveted project Mumbai – Pune Expressway.

Since then FAIRMATE has provided its services to major contractors in the last two decades with supply of various products into the Highway concrete road development projects. The major products that go into a Concrete road are: Admixtures, Polysulphide sealants, Curing Compounds, Shuttering oils, Protective coatings, Industrial flooring, Concrete repairs, Prepacked concrete & mortar, Engineering Grouts, Waterproofing systems & Highway Repairs. The company has been manufacturing the complete range of construction chemicals and has got wide range of products in its bouquet to offer for different projects. FAIRMATE has been delivering consistent product quality and reliable services to the industry due to its efficient quality managements systems which have been certified with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.

The products that FAIRMATE has been offering to the Concrete road projects are:

Admixtures

Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways
FAIRMATE has got a range of chloride free admixtures which go into the RCC structures. The admixtures used in road projects are Slump retainers, Retarders or high range water reducing plasticizers. The company brings in the latest technology of the European world with help of its tie up with M/s. R.B.P. Ltd., U.K. and has also introduced the 4th generation PC based admixtures which give slump retention to the concrete without affecting the setting time of the concrete with the brand name FAIRFLO. FAIRMATE supplied its admixture range to major NHAI projects like NH 25 4-lane configuration in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, in Rajasthan for NH76, Gujarat East West corridor project on NH8B, Mumbai – Pune Express way on NH4 etc. It has a team of dedicated technical professionals who help the client to develop a tailor made product as per the needs of the site and site conditions and has successfully supplied thousands of tons of admixtures to various sites across the country to some of the known names in the construction world like Shapoorji Pallonji Co. Ltd., Gammon India Ltd, Simplex Infrastructures Ltd, Punj Lloyd Ltd, ITD Cementation Ltd, Nagarjuna Construction, Hindustan Construction, Soma Engineering, IRB, Oriental Structure of India with prestigious consultants like CES, Span Consultants, International consultants, Roughton International, Stanely - Rites, Mahim Tura Consultants and others.

Sealants

Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways
All concrete roads have got expansion and construction joints and its very important to treat these joints properly to ensure long life of the concrete road. NHAI has prescribed in its most specifications the use of Polysulphide sealant for these joints confirming to BS 5212 standards. FAIRMATE manufactures the sealant confirming to the said standards with the brand name FAIRSEAL. The company has got its product approved from government laboratories and have been supplying the product to various Road Projects accross the nation.

Curing Compounds

Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways
Concrete curing is an important aspect to ensure a good quality concrete. Curing is the process of keeping concrete under a specific environmental condition until hydration is relatively complete. Because the cement used in concrete requires time to fully hydrate before it acquires strength and hardness, concrete must be cured once it has been placed. In road projects curing with water is relatively difficult hence various curing compounds are being used for concrete curing. FAIRMATE offers a wide range of curing compounds like chemical curing compounds, wax based curing compounds, white pigment curing compounds & resin alumina based curing compounds with the brand name FAIRCURE and has supplied its products to various Road Projects across the nation confirming to ASTM standards.

Protective Coatings

Role of Construction Chemicals in Roadways
Fairmate has on offer anticarbonation protective coatings for over head structures like flyovers and bridges. These coatings are a unique combination of anticarbonation, elastomeric and waterproofing properties. FAIRMATE has served the industry by providing these coatings to major flyovers of Mumbai and Hyderabad. Also the coatings have been recommended by MSRDC the governing body of Maharashtra road development. The company has also on offer various protective coatings for under the soil concrete structures to protect it from chlorides and sulphates in the sub soil The under the soil protective coatings are coal tar based, epoxy based and combination of coal tar + epoxy.

FAIRMATE has been growing in terms of clients, products offered and geographical coverage. The company has also started its international operations in U.A.E. by establishing its manufacturing base there. It is an Indian company with an International outlook and has maintained its corporate theme of "WE ARE DIFFERENT" by giving that value for money to its clients in terms of quality, service and technical upgradation.
