Whilst the infrastructure and commercial construction segments have evolved with efficient construction solutions, the IHBs continue to face a wide range of challenges due to water seepage. This easy-to-use product’s advanced chemical properties will strengthen all types of concrete structures’ resistance to harmful chemicals, impurities, and moisture. It also prevents water infiltration through micropores. The hydrophobic nature of Ambuja KAWACH limits the oxidation of reinforcement in the concrete structure and prevents corrosion.
