Building engineers, construction firms and property owners and developers have been urged to ensure that structures are protected against water leakages, cracks and other threats.

The Managing Director of PURECHEM Manufacturing Limited, Mr. Rajesh Sarada said this at the unveiling of the company’s latest brand “TopShield” which offers complete water proofing solutions for the built environment.

Sarada said that the products were introduced to help mitigate the danger of water leakages in buildings. He said that as a subsidiary of the Enpee Group, the company is a market leader in the construction chemical sector in Nigeria and West Africa.

The event, which attracted personalities and experts from the construction and business community, featured an award night for outstanding stakeholders.
At the occasion, video clips illustrating the advantages of the new product on structures at the foundation, flooring, roofing and plastering levels were shown. Sections of the clips extensively exposed the danger and embarrassment a leaking roof could cause to structures and people.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Engineering Resource Academy, Engr. Dr. Omolola Adetona, commended the company for its continued collaboration with the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) and other relevant bodies for the manufacturing of tested quality chemicals and adhesive products for the construction industry.

In his presentation, the Head of Sales & Marketing, Engr. Ammit Pawaar, said that leaking structures, whether at the roof, wall or basement levels over time leads to corrosion, cracks and spilling of concretes thereby affecting the durability of the structure.

Commenting on the new product, a distributor and award recipient, Mr. Okorochukwu Ebuka, lauded the company for the Topshield initiative, adding that the firm remains a customer-friendly organisation whose products and services are next to none.
