ACC Gold Water Shield cement is an innovative building material product for home builders. Its special silane based additives are uniformly mixed in precise dosage in technologically superior plant facilities. It shields houses and inhabitants from issues such as dampness and seepage and is more eco-friendly (compared to OPC), thus assisting them in building, long lasting homes and an everlasting planet. Its commercial viability and clear customer need given Indian climatic conditions make it an ideal choice for using in independent family homes. While the lower CO2 emissions contribute significantly towards moving the market to climate friendly building materials, its water repellency reduces ingress of moisture & water into the building structure which enhances durability .
