Novoco introduces Instamix in Indian market
Novoco (formerly known as Lafarge India) has developed a one of kind product ‘Instamix’. The worldclass, ready to use concrete and mortar mix; is available in bags and delivered straight to your job site. The 35 kg bag is designed to ensure cost effective and easy construction in any location.
Looking at the lack of infrastructure development and challenges in a country like India. Meeting demands of cement in some of the congested and not so easily accessible areas was the requirement. This one of a kind product saves all the trouble of inconsistent/ unreliable quality of concrete, multiple vendors, large number of labours, time overrun and disorganised and wasteful raw material storage.
Advantage of Instamix: Zero wastage of sand, aggregate, water etc as Instamix is pre-mixed and ready to use; easy use onsite, as placing and spearing is more efficient; consistent quality ensured by computer controlled batching plants; faster construction thanks to zero raw material handling; and easy to order, as Instamix is delivered directly to the site without vendors.
The renovation of Elephanta is one of the best case study for Instamix. Given the location, transporting concrete to mid- sea through boats and maintaining the consistency through the transport was a major challenge for the project. Since the concrete was used for laying the foundation of ship maintaining signalling tower the consistency was important.
Nuvoco presented the perfect solution for the client’s needs with Instamix: Instamix was ready-to-use concrete in bags which can be delivered at the job site. Product retention designed to 24 hours, it does not allow concrete to set. Assured quality by producing in the ready mix concrete plant. Enhanced workability allows placing and spreading easily without applying too much pressure. Easy to order and saves time since Nuvoco can directly supply the product on-site.
