MAPEI, a global leader in the production of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the construction sector, will introduce two new solutions at the Big 5 International Building & Construction Show 2013 taking place from November 25 to 28, 2013 at the World Trade Center in Dubai. MAPEI’s latest environment-friendly offerings are expected to boost GCC’s concrete market estimated at USD 49 billion , as sustainability continues to be a major trend within the construction sector.
To cater to the market demand, MAPEI will unveil its technological innovation that allows the complete recycling of the returned concrete from the job site to the batching plant within minutes. The second offering is shrinkage compensated thixotropic mortar for cortical restoration of concrete. A single layer of mortar at a variable thickness between 2 and 30 mm is sufficient for most restoration works.
