ACC Ltd, India’s one of leading cement manufacturer and pioneer in cement and concrete technology, launched its premium, value added and multi application cement, ‘ACC Gold’ in Himachal Pradesh.
Company officials believed that ‘ACC Gold’ is the only one of its kind specially formulated pre-homogenised cement with significant water repellent properties which leads to lesser water penetration and thereby gives freedom from seepage.
Company experts said that the ACC Gold can be used for all applications including foundation concrete, beams and columns, brick masonry, wall plaster in basement, wall plaster on interior walls, bathrooms and balconies, ceiling plaster, terrace surface, wall plaster on exterior walls, water tanks and water retaining structures. They said that water is the main cause of building decay and deterioration and building materials have considerably shorter life span when subjected to moisture over a prolonged period of time. They claimed that the concrete made from “ACC Gold” is denser and thereby the concrete structures have lesser permeability compared to structures made with ordinary cement. Lesser permeability reduces the possibility of water seepage and chloride and sulphate attacks, making the structures more durable.
