Research and innovative are the driving forces behind our growth.
This is why, every year, we invest 5% of our turnover in research work.
Specialisation includes the exchange of knowledge between the various Mapei Group Research & Development teams and the constant update of knowledge through joint research projects with the scientific community.
The key themes are speed, expertise and multi-discipline skill sets.
The speed at which the market changes or develops requires, first and foremost, an immediate reaction regarding the creation of new products. This is why we have people with different areas of expertise working in our laboratories.
In order to create the final formulation, all the product’s physical and chemical characteristics are fully tested, it is exposed to variations in temperature and humidity and its emissions are analysed to reduce its content of volatile organic compounds to a minimum. All these activities are carried out by hundreds of research scientists using the most sophisticated analysis equipment and instruments.
Innovation and sustainability are an essential combination for the wellbeing of future generations, a combination which we invest heavily in every year, with great success and satisfaction.
