MAPEI, the world’s leading manufacturer of chemical products for construction industry, is a Partner of Italy Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. MAPEI Construction Chemicals LLC, the fully owned subsidiary of the MAPEI Group, has supplied over 30 eco-friendly building products, weighing over 100 tons that helped turn the pavilion into a state-of-the-art structure.

The Italian building solutions provider recreated real sand dunes and coated the suspended walkway within the pavilion through the use of coffee beans and a special powder made from orange-peel, bringing to life a unique blend of Emirati flair and Italian cultures into it. MAPEI’s Technical Services Division team provided the resin and concrete flooring to install ceramic and marble, decorate and finish off walls and various waterproofing solutions, giving it full 360-degree involvement from initial conception of the project with its cutting-edge works of engineering.

“We can’t wait for the world to see an astonishing finish of the Italian Pavilion made possible through the collaborative efforts of MAPEI’s Research and Development team, using only top-of-the-range products to ensure intact and accurate delivery of the structure and colors as per the blueprint from our respected engineers and lead project architects. We take pride in calling ourselves the official partner of Italy, bringing the Italian flair to Expo 2020”, concludes, Stefano Iannacone, Director for Middle East and Africa, MAPEI Group
