The innovative product mix has a rapid setting time of approximately 2 hours and maintains the desired properties of concrete even when poured on surfaces with high-water content.
To deliver added value to customers, ACC launched “ACC Thermofillcrete”, a superior quality concrete that can dissipate heat and help lower the cost associated with excavation, backfilling and compaction.
ACC also launched “ACC ADMIX”, a concrete additive mixture range, under its Solutions & Products segment. The ACC ADMIX range is a new generation polymer which is designed to impart exceptional performance in concrete.
In line with sustainability priorities, “ECOPact”, a ready mix green concrete for high-performing, sustainable and circular construction was also launched. This is the first green concrete range launched in India and was brought from the parent LafargeHolcim. The aim is to give eco-conscious customers a choice to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of buildings. The innovative manufacturing process reduces CO2 emissions by up to 100%. Its introduction in the Indian market enhances the sustainable product offerings for the construction industry. This new sustainable product range has already been launched across 6 cities in India.
