SABS Mark for Mapei admixtures an industry first

25 May 2015

Mapei South Africa’s Concrete Admixture product line was recently 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 visible expression of the SABS Product Certification Scheme aimed at providing consumers 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 widely recognised. Now, not only can the performance of the products speak for themselves, but the specifier and user of the products can be assured that the product is manufactured and performs to the South African National Standards,” Offenberg adds.

Through this initiative, Mapei has introduced the local construction industry to international best practices in specification and performance of the correct admixture for the application at hand.

It also displays Mapei’s commitment to ensure that the product supplied will perform to the standards set by the SANS specification, and the customer is guaranteed the promised product performance on a consistent basis.

Mapei South Africa continues to introduce the local construction industry to the benefits of the advanced Mapei additives, sealants, adhesives and concrete performance chemicals. Mapei’s range of products and solutions covers industrial, commercial and residential applications, from the smallest DIY jobs to major project sites.

Over its 77-year history, the key pillars of Mapei’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 certified by leading environmental authorities worldwide.
