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)
