Jayajothi Cements develops anti-corrosive cement

| Updated on: Apr 19, 2012

The Chennai-based Sree Jayajothi Cements Ltd has developed a special anti-corrosive cement, christened Corrosino, and is planning to introduce it to the market, especially in the coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and other states, according to Mr G. Ganesh Kumar, General Manager (Marketing).

He said at a press meet here on Thursday that Jayajothi Cements was producing 3.2 million tonnes of cement a year and the plant was located at Yanakandla village in Banaganapalle mandal of Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh. He said the company was producing slag cement as well as blended cements of all types and there was an exclusive line for blended cements. “We have on-line analysers - analysers on the production line - to produce quality cement. In the production process itself, the cement will be analysed at different stages and quality maintained,” he said.

“Corrosion-resistant steel is being produced in some steel plants. But we felt the need for developing anti-corrosive cement as well to enhance the life and quality of structures. We have employed monomolecular layer technology in producing the special cement. It forms a nano passive layer over the steel surface very quickly before the other elements that come into contact with steel could reach the surface. It will deflect chlorides and water molecules causing corrosion,” he said.

He said all facilities were ready at the plant for production of the special blended cement. He said some samples had been produced and sent to users.

Mr R. Balakrishnan, Vice-President (Commercial), said the company was confident of a very good response from the users to the new cement. He said it was also an eco-friendly product.
