Manufactured sand has become the future of construction practices, however it also has certain limitations for eg: on an average it consumes 25-30% more water than normal river sand, contains larger amounts of micro fine particles that affect the strength and work-ability of the screed or concrete, poor bonding properties and develops high level of shrinkage cracks like a Honeycomb.
Dr. Fixit, the construction and waterproofing expert, announced the launch of LW+Super a revolutionary product, to resolve the issues faced with the usage of M-Sand. LW+ Super when mixed with M-sand offers superior quality which results in increased life-span of a building. The 4 Ace benefits of adding LW+ Super into M-sand are, it increases the workability of the crushed sand mortar and concrete by 30% water reduction in the mix, resists corroison of steel in concrete, increases the strength and durability of the structure and most importantly waterproofs the concrete and mortar. It’s plasticizing properties makes mortar cohesive and prevents segregation which gives it excellent adhesion to surface resulting in considerable less shrinkage cracks in plaster and reduces rebound loss during plastering by almost 50%. It improves the integral waterproofing properties of cement, concrete & plasters after curing, resulting in longer life of the building.
LW+ Super will be available across Maharashtra. The state observes incrased usage of M-Sand over the years and the current consumption is almost at 40 – 45%.
