Under bridge repair, we undertake various repair and maintenance activities for Steel, masonry and concrete bridges.
Bridges, the following activities are carried out by Dimple Chemical & Services:
• Metalising process to control the rate of corrosion and increase the life of the steel structure.
• Replacing the sand blasting process by Nicprotect Z300 for removing of existing paint. Hence the environmental hazard of sand blasting is avoided
• The Flexo Epoxy Metalised coating is a flexible and a UV light resistant material containing excellent bonding properties with metal surface. It is a non-acidic polymer and has good workability. This material is inert to saline atmosphere, is non polluting and non hazardous as well.
Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd have a specially designed T joint technology for masonry bridge structures. This T joint is filled by PICC material with bonding agent for increasing the strength of structure and is comparatively a more suitable product than the existing conventional methods.
Concrete surfaces have 15 to 20 % porosity which makes the structure become weak. At Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd, we make this process more effective through application of our in-house technology of Poly Ironide Ceramic Cementitous (PICC) coating which gives less than 1 % porosity. This technology is also used to repair Piers under water, owing to the high level of water flow.
Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd have carried out the process of creating artificial lakes on black cotton soil for many clients until now. Our new technology of PICC has been created in an attempt to replace conventional method of RCC. The PICC benefits can be listed out as working towards no expansion joints, monolithic application, no tiling etc., thereby providing a more cost-effective solution to your construction requirements.
For dam strengthening, we provide services for:
• Baffle Block – This is treated by the PICC technology for creating an excellent bond and high abrasion resistance.
• Concrete surface
• Masonry and UCR Surface
• Radial Gates and Hoist
• Sluice Gate Concrete Area
• Stilling Basin
• Wave Block
Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd uses PICC for resurfacing of concrete surfaces, Piers and Sluice Gate concrete area. Guniting in general has 30-40% porosity whereas PICC has less than 1% porosity, thereby strengthening the structure. The thickness of PICC is also just 15-20mm implying an ease of application and cost-effectiveness. This PICC technology is also used for spillway coating, as it has excellent abrasion resistance and UV stability. As PICC is best for application in areas with high velocity of water flow, it is also applied on Stilling Basins and Wave Block, with similar coating of 15-20mm.
Poly-cementitious Grouting material is applied for grouting of dam by injecting, to reduce the porosity inside the dam / concrete structure and to increase the strength of Dam /concrete structure. Specially designed PICC material is used for T jointing treatment of Masonry & UCR surface which strengthens the structure with less than 1 % porosity.
For Radial Gates and Hoist, the Flexo Epoxy Metalised Coating technology is used. This technology is a metalizing process for controlling the rate of corrosion and increasing the sustainability of the structure. This technology can also be used for replacing sand blasting, which replacing existing paint with a new coat, thereby negating any environmental hazard.
The various areas of canal repairs undertaken by Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd include aqueduct, Siphon, Canal Lining and Conduit.
The PICC technology product is applied very extensively here as well for its great quality porosity amount of 1%. An inner coating of aqueducts, siphons, canal linings and conduits is done for meeting the high abrasion resistance levels.
Modified Polysulphide sealant is also used as joint sealant which serves as a good adhesive to the concrete surface, curing elastic rubber seal, surface porosity close to nil and being chemical resistant.
External water pipeline have many welding joints. Corrosion rate is at a higher level due to welding of these water pipes. Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd provides solution to this through application of Flexo Ironite ceramic coating on welding joints. This application increases the life of joint by controlling of rate of corrosion.
The metalizing of surfaces is also done for controlling the rate of corrosion and ensuring UV stability.
Water Proofing services by Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd are included for:
• Basement work
• Lift Pit
• OHWT (Over Head Water Tank)
• Sloping Roof
• STP (Sewage Treatment Plant)
• Swimming Pool
• Toilet & Utilities
• UGWT (Underground Water Tank)
• Water Bodies
• Top Terrace
• Vertical Walls
• Elevated Storage Reservoirs (ESR)
Dimple Chemicals & Services Pvt Ltd's technology of PICC material is used and approved for inner coating of OHWT, sloping roof, STP, swimming pools, toilet and utilites, UGWT as well. PICC’s salient features of having low porosity, high comprehensive strength, high abrasion resistance, and excellent bond strength, enables spread of usage across concrete, steel, PVC surfaces. PICC replaces the box-type waterproofing methods through monolithic applications, which can cover 200sqm surface area in a day, thus becoming more cost-effective solution. The coating thickness of this technology is 5-20mm and is a far more superior in application than existing conventional methods like using Brickbat Coba.
PICC is also an excellent material to be used in the Plastering process. It is time saving, reduces load, water proofs external wall and avoids incurring the cost of internal plaster.
