Walayar (27.03.2023): Malabar Cements has launched a dry mix, a unique product meant for plastering of buildings, as part of the company’s diversification move into allied and value-added products. The dry mix is made by mixing cement and sand after removing dampness with the help of a machine. Coming in 40-kg bags, the dry mix can be used directly for plastering by adding water. Malabar Cements managing director K. Harikumar said that the dry mix would not only be a solace to the construction industry, which is facing an acute shortage of sand, but also give an impetus to the industry. He said the dry mix can cover a larger area than the conventional cement and sand method. Hon' Industries Minister P. Rajeev inaugurated the sale of the dry mix at a function held in Kochi on Sunday.
