Company develops product line in response to a 40% cut in concrete production in the UAE
A reduction in uae concrete-production figures has driven building adhesives, sealants and chemical products supplier Mapei to launch a new concrete admixture line, according to the company.
The product has been developed specifically to help address technical and efficiency issues in the region’s concrete industry, especially in the uae, where Mapei reports a 40% cut in the level of concrete production.
Mapei said the admixture also minimises energy usage during mixing, application and finishing, and reduces cement water content, which can lower the company’s carbon footprint.
“Through mapei’s extensive research and product development programme, we have been able to develop this high-technology range of admixtures, which in many cases can assist with the production of higher-quality, higherperformance concrete and can also help to produce ‘greener’ concrete that perfectly suits the region’s demanding climatic conditions,” said business development director — IBS Laith Haboubi. He added that the new product line retains typical qualities in terms of flowability, set times and even-surface finish for concrete.
