Mapei’s concrete admixture product line is certified with the SABS mark.
Mapei South Africa’s concrete admixture product line has recently been awarded the SABS mark. The SABS certification covers the 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 commercial general manager, Antony Offenberg.
The SABS mark is the visible representation of the SABS Product Certification Scheme, aimed at providing the consumer with third-party guarantee that the quality and reliability of the approved product are fit for its designated purpose and meet the appropriate standard.
“In the past, we have supplied concrete admixtures for a number of notable projects and the Dynamon brand is widely recognised today,” notes Offenberg. “Now, not only can the performance of the products speak for itself, but the specifier and product user can be assured that the product is manufactured in line with the South African National Standards.
“By taking the initiative to certify this product range of concrete admixtures, Mapei introduces the local concrete and construction market to international best practices in specification and performance of the correct admixture for the application at hand,” Offenberg says.
“It further displays commitment from Mapei to produce and supply products that will not only perform according to the required standards set by the SANS specification, but which will also guarantee the customer the product performance that was promised, on a consistent basis,” he says.
According to Offenberg, Mapei South Africa continues to present the local construction industry with the benefits of the advanced Mapei building technology 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 the needs of major project sites.
