During the Middle East Stone Exhibition which took place on May 22-25, 2017 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, MAPEI highlighted two of its most powerful product lines dedicated to the stone, marble and ceramics industry.
MAPEI is heavily involved in the construction market by supplying a variety of products to the numerous flooring installers in the region. Products vary and include adhesives, grouts, screeds, sealants, self-leveling compounds, resilient flooring and much more.
MAPEI launched Mapestone System, which is a complete solution to obtain durable, long-lasting architectural stone road surfaces resistant in extreme temperatures. Featuring exceptional characteristics that produce high durable finished work that saves time and money in maintenance or repairs, these pre-blended cementitious products are used for stone and screed installation, block stone paving, and grouting joints and architectural flagstone. The combined use of these products creates a long-lasting monolithic structure, and is widely used for repairing ancient pedestrian zones and streets.
In addition, MAPEI displayed the new colored grouts, the only one of its kind in the market for the vastness of its range of products and the wide choice of colours. A range that meets every requirement in ceramic tile laying, whatever the surroundings, whether it is residential, commercial or industrial. The colours are divided into five different collections: Serene, Traditional, Natural, Romance and Glamour. The aim is to make it easier to choose the right grout according to the requirements of each particular project and the personal preferences of each client.
Moreover during the exhibition, MAPEI focused on highlighting a range of products for LVT floors and is launching “Flexcolor 4 LVT”, an acrylic flexible grout which, when fixed on a luxury vinyl tile (LVT), allows the installer to create an effect similar to the joints between stone and ceramic. This product was used on all the floors of Dubai Future Foundation, a government entity that provides innovative services integrating both public and private sectors. The product complies with the certified eco sustainability standards and international programs aimed at safeguarding health and the environment.
