The subdued economic forecasts in many countries make it imperative to use cost efficient materials in the commercial and civil construction sectors. The repair systems have been proven to be a much cost-effective method to repair, restore and rehabilitate concrete structures versus more traditional practices with mechanical or cementitious materials. Although the market is somewhat finite in scope, it is diverse to address the niche. The combination of their cost-effectiveness and the financial pragmatism behind repairing versus rebuilding is the central reason why they are forecasted to grow at over a high rate annually in the coming years despite the projected slump in construction activity.
Slab repair comprises a small section of the following categories of construction chemicals flooring compounds, water proofing compounds, repair and rehabilitation, sealants and grouts. Flooring compounds are mostly epoxy and polyurethane based. They are used to meet various industrial needs such as abrasion, load impact, chemical attack, moisture penetration, strengthening of damaged floors, as well as improving the aesthetic appeal of the floor. As well as static resistance and fire resistance. Water proofing compounds are designed to stop water infiltration and caters to various products such as polymer modified cementitious composites, elastomeric polyurethane, water proofing concrete, expanded polyethylene, polyurethane systems, etc.
Market Dynamics of the Global Market for Slab Repair Products:
Better performance characteristics and sustainability
Growth in revitalization of public infrastructure projects
Lack of market penetration
The repair and rehabilitation products include cementitious repair mortars, concrete floor repairing systems, polyester and epoxy-based resin mortars, moisture insensitive epoxies, structural additives, synthetic adhesives, rust removers and corrosion inhibitors. The sealants are used to seal expansion joints, cracks, joints in concrete roads and to fill gaps in concrete. Epoxy-based liquid grouting compounds are mainly injected into the walls to fill hairline cracks and gaps, thereby improving the strength of the structure. Polyurethane sealants are used for high-end applications where high flexibility and bonding strength are required.
