Industry Funded Research Project:

Development of Hydrophobic Admixture for Concrete

Dr. Prakash Mehta (CEO Tawata Technologies) with Dr. Santosh G. Shah, Director (Innovation)

Concrete structures once cured are venerable upon exposure to water. Presence of water in concrete induced many chemical reactions that are responsible for deterioration of the structure. The important chemical reactions that are known are ASR, Carbonation, Sulfate attack, Corrosion, Acid rain etc. These reactions possibility can significantly be reduced by hydrophobic admixture. AguaProof is new generation organosilicon based product specially designed for hydrophobic admixture for concrete.

The Principal Investigator Dr. Santosh G Shah and Co-Investigator Dr. Lalit Thakur from Department of Civil Engineering, BITS Edu Campus, will work on developing hydrophobic admixture for concrete.
