For years, the process of cement hardening had been a laborious and troublesome task prone to errors. The hardening process had to be done exceptionally precisely; even the slightest mistake caused significant problems. Old procedures also involved silica as the bonding agent, which caused most of the issues.
With advancements in all sectors of the world, the construction and cement industry has also made huge advancements and progress. The convergent concrete company did a lot of research and created a fantastic compound that allows cement hardening in a practically error-free process and is rapid and easy to do.
The new formula makes use of the ionic bonding phenomenon that is characteristic of molecules instead of making use of silica. You might be wondering what ionic bonding is. Please read the following paragraph to find out about it.
What is an ionic bond?
An ionic bond is a chemical bond formed by molecules that hold opposite charges. This bond is one of the strongest chemical bonds created by the transfer of electrons between the two molecules, which allows both to complete their octets. A molecule is in its most stable form when its octet is complete. An octet is formed because of electron sharing, thus stabilizing the molecules. Hence, molecules resist breaking separation, and a lot of energy is required to break these bonds, thus making them extremely strong and durable.
Benefits of ionic bond over silica bonding
Because of the formation of ionic bonds between the molecules of cement and the hardener, it is one of the best acting materials. It spreads and penetrates further and deeper into the cement, thus making it very durable. This durability makes it resilient to scratches, dustproof, tolerant of traffic, etc. It also makes the process of polishing and smoothing the surface a lot easier. This formula developed by the convergent concrete company makes the process very easy and does not require a lot of labor as opposed to the traditional method. It also makes it very durable and long-lasting.
The significant benefits of this formula include:
- It can be used at temperatures as low as -3 degrees Celsius.
- The application method doesn’t require much training and can be learned quickly.
- The process is simple and doesn’t require additional cleaning or wiping off excess.
- Since the process is easy and error-free, the project gets finished in less time and within the estimated budget.
