Mapei has launched an advanced range of locally manufactured building products to assist contractors to work smarter and to improve the overall quality of building work completed. The company has invested extensively in its new state-of-the-art Roodekop facility to meet local demand for construction chemicals that comply with local and international standards.

The building range consists of a variety of commercial and residential general-purpose building products as well as high performing technical products such as performance grouts, cementitious waterproofing, screeds, concrete additives, concrete repair products and more.

Mapei managing director, Antony Offenberg, comments: “We consider our products to be part of a solution system rather than a one-off application. As such, all our products are formulated in such a manner that when used together with other products on an application, they give the best possible outcome. Mapei products are competitively priced and are manufactured to international standards, allowing for a combination of consistent and high quality end results.”

Some of Mapei’s building line products include Mapefill GP SAF 25kg, a general purpose non-shrink grout; Mapegrout T40 SAF 25kg, shrinkage compensated, fibre reinforced grout for concrete repairs; and Mapelastic Smart A 20kg, a flexibility waterproofing grout with crack bridging ability, amongst others.

Tracy Harris, Mapei commercial manager, says the company’s products are price competitive and manufactured to international standards, which ensures consistency of quality and value.

“We have recently secured several well-known distributors/resellers, who are market leaders in their own right, to stock the Mapei range, ensuring availability to all customers. With the recent inception of our technical department and our training centre, we are available to provide our customers with consistent technical advice and support, either in-store or directly on site,” comments Tracy.
