NISHYCEM

HOW CAN YOU IMPROVE THE SUSTAINABILITY OF CEMENT MATERIALS, CONCRETE, FOAM CONCRETE OR FIBRE CEMENT SHEETING?

GreenWin présente NISHYCEM :

Cement materials are porous in nature, a disadvantage which is noticeable at 
two levels: the mechanical resistance of concrete, and the durability of concrete. 
Reducing the absorption of water through the porosity of the cement matrix 
constitutes the best defence mechanism against aggressive agents.


NYSHYCEM has developed an ideal integral water repellent for use in cement 
materials that is based on micro-encapsulation technology. The advantage of this 
water repellent is that it has no impact on the mechanical properties of materials 
as it renders the cement matrix hydrophobic in its mass without changing its 
natural properties (notably its breathability)

Les « + » :

  • High value-added product that enables the manufacturing of more sustainable materials with a longer workable life.
  • The use of integral water repellents allows for treatment to be carried out at the same time as the material is being prepared, cutting out the need for one of the stages of the procedure.
  • It offers complete protection, even in the case of incision or the drilling of holes.
  • The new additive has minimal impact on the mechanical properties of cement materials, allowing for its use in materials such as foam concretes
