Mapei South Africa is proud to announce that its Concrete Admixture product line has recently been awarded the SABS Mark. The SABS certification covers the market-leading range of liquid admixtures for concrete, mortar and grouts that the company manufactures locally.
“This is a particularly noteworthy accolade as Mapei South Africa is the first admixture producer in South Africa authorised to display the Mark,” says Mapei South Africa’s General Manager – Commercial, Antony Offenberg.
The SABS Mark is the highly visible expression of the SABS Product Certification Scheme aimed at providing the consumer with third party guarantees that the quality and reliability of the approved product will be fit for the designated purpose and meet the appropriate standard.
In the past we have supplied our concrete admixtures to a number of notable projects, and the Dynamon brand is now widely recognised. Now, not only can the performance of the products speak for themselves, but the specifier and user of the products can now be assured that the product is manufactured and performs to the South African National Standards.
Through this initiative, Mapei introduces the local concrete and construction market to the international best practices in specification and performance of the correct concrete admixtures for the application at hand. It also displays the commitment from Mapei that the product supplied will not only perform against the required standards set by the SANS specification, but that the customer will be guaranteed the product performance that was promised, on a consistent basis.
Mapei South Africa continues to introduce the local construction industry to the benefits of the advanced Mapei building technology additives, sealants, adhesives and concrete performance chemicals. Mapei’s range of products and solutions cover industrial, commercial and residential applications, from the smallest DIY jobs to the needs of major project sites.
With a proud 77 year history, Mapei is today the world leader in the production of adhesives, chemical products and solutions for building, from facilities operating in over 31 countries on 5 continents.
The key pillars of the company’s success have been its investment in research to drive innovation, the development of a comprehensive product range that provides solutions for virtually all building needs, and the focus on producing eco-sustainable products that are certified by leading environmental authorities around the world.
