Construction chemicals include concrete admixtures, waterproofing chemicals, protective coatings, adhesives, sealants, repair, and rehabilitation chemicals that are used in applications such as commercial and residential repair, remodel, and new constructions. Some key products are concrete admixtures, waterproofing chemicals, protective coatings, adhesives, and sealants. Concrete admixtures are substances that are added to concrete during the mixing process, which help achieve special physical and chemical properties. Waterproofing chemicals are used to make structures and materials resistant to water penetration. Protective coatings are applied to surfaces to protect them from damage or contamination over their service life. Adhesives are used for bonding and sealing. Sealants are chemical mixtures that fill gaps and prevent the intrusion of water and other substances.
