(Aaron Paul) He is famous all over the world but never complacent; he is knowledgeable but still approachable, and he still remains true to the original aspiration while having his work done and recognized. When talking with him, you will sigh from your heart that you benefit more than ten years of reading. When you associate with him, his talent, courage, aura, vigor, spirit and demeanor will make you deeply understand the rich connotation of “being ambitious and caring for the world”. He is XU Ruyi, president of Keshun Civil Building Materials Co., Ltd. And a leading figure of China’s waterproof material industry.
Back to August 13th, the award ceremony of “Excellent Invention Achievement in Waterproof Material Science and Technology Innovation” and “Pioneer of Waterproof Material Technology Innovation” of China Scientists Forum, the most important honor of China’s waterproof material industry, was grandly held in Beijing. During the grand ceremony, XU Ruyi won these two honors alone, and was in the limelight in the field of waterproof materials. These two well-deserved honors also fully demonstrate the sincere recognition and respect for XU Ruyi’s achievements and dedication by the whole Chinese waterproof material industry and all sectors of society.
Participated in industry monographs
Although he is already the president of Keshun Civil Building Materials Co., Ltd., XU Ruyi has always paid close attention to the development of first-line waterproof materials, which makes him not only an entrepreneur, but also an academic talent who is always based on the industry foundation. What is even more rare is that he also actively participates in the editing of monographs in the field of waterproof materials.
At present, the waterproof technology of home improvement lacks systematic standards with strong pertinence, which makes it difficult to guarantee the waterproof quality of home improvement, and leads to constant disputes over residential water leakage. Home improvement waterproof and leakage repair urgently need professional and standardized high-quality services to meet the needs of people, and compiling industry monographs is an important means to promote industry standardization, specialization and systematization. XU Ruyi participated in the editing and reviewing of many industry monographs because of his great influence in the industry.
Especially in the second half of 2020, XU Ruyi participated in the project, “Technical Regulations for Waterproof, Moisture-proof and Leakage Repair of Home Improvement”, organized by China Building Waterproofing. This book summarizes in detail how to formulate waterproof and moisture-proof schemes, reasonable material selection and construction specifications for home improvement, and reveals the causes, countermeasures and maintenance points of leakage in many common parts of home improvement through a large number of case studies. It is an important reference book for home improvement waterproof material selection and leakage maintenance technology, and has become an important reference and training book for technicians and property maintenance managers engaged in home improvement waterproof work after publication. In the process of compiling the book, XU Ruyi provided professional guidance for the selection of waterproof materials of the book with solid professional knowledge and super technical ability, and played a key role in the final publication of the book.
Outstanding achievements in scientific research
XU Ruyi always believes that an excellent waterproof material engineer must have the following conditions and qualities: to have excellent professional ability, which is the foundation of an engineer; full work enthusiasm and hard-working spirit; full of sense of responsibility, to have the idea that waterproof materials is directly related to the building life; good communication skills, which include not only being able to express their views effectively, but also being able to actively listen to and absorb other people’s opinions, and being able to persuade others to support their views; broad knowledge framework, not limited to a small field of waterproof materials, but also being able to understand the development of waterproof materials related equipment industry, waterproof materials construction technology and so on. Such knowledge structure of the whole industry chain can improve one’s own perspective and deepen one’s understanding of his or her own areas of expertise.
XU Ruyi has all of that. It can even be said that XU Ruyi’s cognition and understanding of waterproof materials is far superior to others.
Over the years, he has always carried out scientific and technological innovation of waterproof materials with this cognition and professional belief, and made a series of great achievements obvious to all. Many of his technological achievements rely on various practices to tackle key technical problems in key links such as quality inspection and analysis of waterproof materials, production line management, and even coating construction. The new technologies and processes he created was introduced by Shijiazhuang Boda Traffic Highway Engineering Facilities Co., Ltd., and the General Manager of the company, ZHU Shengli once publicly commented, “Many technological achievements developed by Mr. XU Ruyi have achieved significant changes in research and development and quality inspection of waterproof materials by introducing digital means such as artificial intelligence and informationization, greatly promoted the technological progress of waterproof materials industry and created remarkable economic benefits for global application enterprises. In the future, the technological achievements developed by Mr. XU Yuyi will definitely become an excellent example for the whole industry to use cutting-edge technologies to promote the upgrading of industrial intelligent technology.”
Always keep the initial mind
As the saying goes: “Success comes naturally.” With rich practical experience for many years, XU Ruyi regarded every project he participated in as a technical cultivation. It was in these bits and pieces of work that he gradually grew up and finally became a recognized technical leader in China’s waterproof material industry relying on scientific and technological innovation. XU Ruyi, who has become famous now, has not stopped. Apart from many new technologies being researched and developed, he has also held important leadership positions in many well-known organizations in the industry, such as the Ready-Mixed Mortar Branch of China Building Material Council. He has done a lot of work beneficial to the development of the industry in many aspects, such as the popularization of high and new technologies, the exchange of industry frontiers, and personnel training, which has become an important driving force for the high-quality development of the global waterproof materials industry.
XU Ruyi once said that as a scientific and technological worker, the most important work philosophy and mission was “down-to-earth, seeking truth and being pragmatic, and realizing personal value”. It is just these simple answers with rich contents that tell XU Ruyi’s lingering duty and mission as a top scientific research expert in the industry. It is the dedication and responsibility of this duty that makes XU Ruyi’s life shine in constant struggle and diligence.
