Holcim Philippines, Inc. will showcase its lineup of innovative and sustainable products that are helping partners advance progress in the country when it participates in the Davao leg of top construction trade show Philconstruct.

Among the products to be featured at its PhilConstruct booth in SM Lanang from Sept. 8-10 is Holcim Aqua-X, the first water-repellent cement in the Philippines. Launched in Davao in April 2021, Holcim Aqua-X is enhanced with water-repellant boosters to make structures more durable against moisture damage.

The Holcim booth will also put a spotlight on ECOPlanet, the company’s most environmentally friendly product with at least 30% lower carbon footprint than ordinary cement. Introduced in Mindanao this July, ECOPlanet enables partners to build durable and lasting infrastructure while being more respectful of the environment.
