Strengthening bridges with Thermax construction chemicals
Thermax’s Construction chemicals are now used in national highway projects. Along the NH9 PuneSolapur expressway project, they are curing cracks and honeycombs (hollow cavities left in a concrete mass) on three flyovers. Pune Solapur Expressways Pvt. Ltd., a joint venture of Tata Infrastructure and Autostrade, Italy, approached Thermax for a turnkey solution that included consultancy, product recommendation and implementation.
The Chemical division team used low viscous epoxy (adhesive) injections to seal the cracks and a very strong epoxy mortar to repair the honeycomb areas. The repair work was completed on time and the bridges have been opened for traffic. Thermax Construction Chemical division, in technical collaboration with Tecnochem Italiana S.p.A, of Italy offers the entire spectrum of construction chemicals – solutions for repairs and rehabilitations, industrial floorings, water proofing, admixtures, grouts, sealants, surface treatments, adhesives and cement grinding aids.
