In Ethiopia, the concrete admixtures
market is likely to be driven in coming days by the increasing rate of urbanization and fast-growing construction sector.
The specialised precast concrete admixtures
that have been introduced by Mapei include Dynamon PCE range and, in particular, Mapefluid N500, which are now extensively used in the construction industry, reports the company.
In addition to the mortar production unit, which has a capacity of 20,000 tons per year, the facility will house a modern laboratory, as well as a new concrete admixtures
logistics hub for southern Greece.
Sika is opening its first concrete admixture
and mortar production facilities in Nigeria and Ivory Coast and has established new subsidiaries in Ethiopia and Tanzania to participate in the growing markets in the Sub-Saharan region.
The product line will include Concrete Admixture
, Waterproofing System, Engineering Grouts, Industrial Flooring System, Surface Treatment, Concrete Repairs, Pre-packed Concrete and Mortar, Protective Coating and Polysulphide Sealants.
Through research and value engineering on multiple exhibit projects," says Project Manager Mariusz Bleszynski AIA, LEED AP of PGAV Destinations, "we discovered that a concrete pool vessel made watertight by a crystalline concrete admixture
or surface treatment is a very economical construction method.
Sika has opened a new mortar manufacturing facility in Dubai and a concrete admixture
plant on Reunion.
Sika Serbia has relocated its premises from Belgrade city to a larger site in Simanovci, 20 km north-west of the capital, and built a mortar plant in addition to its existing concrete admixture
MAPEI's concrete admixture
product line, for example, can produce 'greener' concrete which minimizes energy use during mixing, application and finishing and reduces cement and water content, resulting in lower carbon footprint.
