BMC Picks Alccomix as Mumbai’s Pothole Solution
Mumbai’s Concrete Road Makeover
The monsoons are knocking on Mumbai’s door! The question on every Mumbaikar’s mind – How will we survive our potholed roads this year?! Alccomix is the new fix on the block that promises to fill concrete potholes in minutes. Time is the essence for two major reasons.
The first reason is that nobody knows which square foot of Mumbai’s 983 kms of concrete roads will break up and when. The second reason is that the window between showers is the only time the BMC has to fill up the potholes. This window can last just a few hours. The solution has to be quick and long lasting. Alccomix seems to be the ideal fix for the problem.
After preparing the area, it takes just 15 minutes to fill. This blend of cement, sand and high bonding polymers has been designed with Mumbai’s potholes in mind. Alccomix has a quick setting time which helps mend the hole and get the road ready for use in minutes.
After cleaning and filling, Alccomix sets and is ready under 30 minutes. In just 2 hours, the road can be thrown open for traffic. Alccomix is formulated with advanced binders that do not require curing and ensure no shrinkage. Hence, this variety is labelled InstaCem (IC). The benefit of modern polymer technology is ready to become the ideal quick fix for Mumbai’s perennial potholes. The other variant of Alccomix is labelled Concrete Repair (CR). This is ideal for filling cracks, resurfacing and repairing old concrete.
As Mumbai eagerly awaits the South-West monsoons, we wait with baited breath to gauge its impact on Br. Rajni Patel Marg, Colaba Reclamation and other locations where Alccomix has been used.
