Firm eyes roll-out of 1-day road repair concrete in city, Davao
Holcim Philippines will roll out its SFCrete road repair solution outside Metro Manila to help partners lessen disruption from rehabilitation of busy urban thoroughfares.
Cement manufacturer Holcim Philippines, Inc. is planning to make available its one-day concrete SuperFast (SF) Crete outside the National Capital Region to support contractors looking to participate in government road repair projects in other urban areas and help lessen disruption to commuters.
The company recently held a webinar to promote SFCrete among road contractors in Metro Manila, who expressed strong interest in using the building solution in their projects. The company also plans to offer SFCrete to contractor partners in Davao and Baguio, who are interested in lessening closure time of thoroughfares due to repairs. Since its launch in 2016, SFCrete has been used to repair close to 15 kilometers of roads all over Metro Manila.
Holcim Philippines Senior Vice President for Marketing and Innovation noted that SFCrete is only one of the two one-day concrete solutions accredited by Department of Public Works and Highways. With SFCrete, roads can be reopened in 24 hours after repairs compared with regular concrete, which needs three to 14 days for curing.
Aside from fast curing time and concrete strength, Maganti said contractors are provided superior technical support in optimizing the design of concrete. SFCrete is also useful in keeping workers safe as its superior workability enables contractors to deploy less people and follow physical distancing guidelines in projects. – Press release
