an exclusive interaction, Mr. Mayank Rawal,
Technical Director, Asian Laboratories, shares his pride
product and its specialty with CE&CR.
CE&CR: What were the latest innovative products and
technologies introduced in the last year?
Mr. Mayank Rawal: We have introduced CEMWET BPCP-
900, which is a bipolar concrete penetrating corrosion inhibiting
admixture that protects rebar from corrosion induced by
chloride ions as well as due to carbonation of concrete. It forms
a unimolecular protective layer on the surface of steel thereby
And the second product is Shrinkage Reducing Agent for
Concrete CEMWET SRA 2, which is an innovative liquid chemical
admixture that is specifically formulated to reduce drying
shrinkage. Compared to normal concretes, CEMWET SRA 2
provides enhanced performance through a significant reduction
in shrinkage strain and a reduced number of harmful cracks.
CEMWET SRA 2 meets AS 1478 Type SN and chloride free.
CE&CR: Please share your organization’s efforts towards Research and Development.
