Cement is a critical material used in buildings, residential structures, bridges, harbors, runways, and roads. It endures a chemical process known as “setting” to join cement with other materials.
It’s critical to use cement with good workability and compressive strength to make structures last longer.
Among general-purpose cements, Holcim Excel is the most widely used for its premium quality, designed for a wide range of construction projects from structural to decorative. Holcim Excel mixes and places easily with early strength, cutting building time in half. Save time and money on repairs with its improved usability.
2. Fine Aggregate
Fine aggregate is an essential component of concrete made up of natural sand or crushed stone. The quality and fine aggregate density heavily influence the hardened properties of concrete.
Roads and driveways are the most common applications for the material when purchased in bulk.
4. Concrete Nails
Concrete nails are a must-have for construction workers and DIY enthusiasts alike. They allow wood to masonry connections and are harder than other kinds of nails.
5. Coco Lumber
Coconut lumber is used in large quantities as scaffolding and form lumber in the construction of tall buildings.
Plywood is a popular construction material because of its many beneficial properties. Formwork or a mould for wet concrete are some of its most common uses, as are the creation of light partitions or external walls, as well as furniture such as cupboards, kitchen cabinets, and office tables.
7. Steel Bar
To help and strengthen concrete, reinforcement bars are steel rods used as tension in reinforced masonry structures and in reinforced concrete.
PVC pipes are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a plastic-vinyl compound. As an alternative to more expensive copper piping, these popular pipe types are widely used in the plumbing industry. Electrical conduits are also made from PVC.
Tile adhesive is a sort of glue that is used to adhere to tiles all around the house. Tile adhesive is a ready-to-use mixture comprising Portland cement, polymers such as epoxy, and selected aggregate particles, along with additional additives to enhance its laying properties.
Tile adhesives are used to adhere tiles to walls, floors, swimming pools, and other surfaces made of cement, wood, glass, or other materials. Cement, epoxy, and polymer are the most common materials used.For premium grade tile adhesive, Holcim Premium Plus and Heavy Duty Tile Adhesive are your choices. Holcim Premium Plus Tile Adhesive is a polymer-modified mortar for installing many ceramic tiles, marble, granite and natural stones to walls and floors by a thin bed method that has smooth consistency and is easy to use. It has higher bond strength than other brands.
Holcim Tile Adhesive Heavy Duty is a polymer-modified premium grade mortar, formulated for more demanding tiling and tile repair projects. It is ideal for the installation of large tiles, tile-over-tile installation and for areas where pedestrian traffic is heavy.
