NHAI mulls using GSFC products for road building

In a boost to India's technical textile sector, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) is likely to use Gujarat State Fertiliser and Chemicals (GSFC) 'Nylon 6 fibre products' for its construction of roads across the country.

“GUJCON - CRF Nylon 6 fibre is being assessed by the ministry of road transport and highways and they are likely to use it in their forthcoming projects,” GSFC Chairman and Managing Director Sandeep Kumar Nanda told PTI .

GUJCON CRF had emerged successful in application trials in rigid pavement at Godhra-Dahod Highway and Ahmedabad -Vadodara National Highway in Gujarat.

GSFC, promoted by the Gujarat government has recently exported the first consignment of Gujcon CRF and PRF to Myanmar.

Nanda claimed that countries like Sri Lanka, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, the UAE and a few others have shown interest in these products.

Concrete Reinforced fibre (CRF) and nylon reinforced fibre (PRF) are used in construction and infrastructure industries as these products help in enhancing the abrasion resistance and durability of concrete structure, reduce shrinkage cracks and rebound loss and water permeability. (SH)
