Pyongyang, April 19 (KCNA) — Soil-hardening agent and concrete water-reducer have been widely applied to the construction field in the DPRK, proving effective.
The agent is made with locally available raw materials, characterized by strong resistance to water and frost and tenacity. It makes it possible to complete construction projects like road-paving ahead of schedule.
The concrete water-reducer has been recognized as an additive of great economic value, as it helps speed up construction and raises the intensity of concrete to the maximum.
It was already introduced into the construction of Mirae Scientists Street and Ryomyong Street, saving a large quantity of cement.
The soil-hardening agent and concrete water-reducer won top prizes at the exhibition of building fixtures for sprucing up Samjiyon County held in March.
