Coastal Plus, a specialised cement manufactured by Associated Cement Company (ACC), was released on Friday.
The cement is manufactured at Encore, a cement plant in the special economic zone (SEZ) at Duvvada, acquired by ACC a few years ago.
Chief Executive (East) of the company Vivek Chawla at a press conference described Coastal Plus as premium high-performance cement.
The company said it gives high early strength and enhances the durability of the structure. The product was released in the market here after testing it first in Kerala where it had received positive feedback.
The cement, resisting corrosion, overcomes a major problem in the coastal areas. It’s priced slightly higher than the OPC cement but has long-term benefits.
