Mapei launches Re-Con Zero system at Big 5
Dubai, November 26, 2013
Mapei, a leading manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for construction, has launched its latest additive technology ‘Re-Con Zero’ (Returned Concrete with Zero Impact) at the International Concrete Sustainability Conference in Dubai.
The conference is a part of the Big 5 International Building and Construction Show 2013, which will run till November 28 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The solution allows the complete recycling of the returned concrete from the job site to the batching plant within minutes without any wastes or negative impact to the environment, said a statement.
The Re-Con Zero System does not require special equipment as its additives treat the returned concrete in the truck mixer, it said.
The resulting granular material can be used as aggregate for new concrete production.
The new solution is environment-friendly as it foregoes the use of as much as five per cent of natural aggregates (depending on local standards), thus preserving natural resources and reducing the cost for waste disposal.
Roberto Saccone, regional business manager – Concrete Admixture of Mapei UAE, said: “Big 5 is a leading construction exhibition in the Mena region that has provided the building industry with a networking platform for last three decades. Mapei is showcasing its latest innovation at the show and creating greater awareness through practical demonstrations of its Re-Con Zero technology.
“We are also exhibiting other exciting and new products at Big 5 that are designed to enhance consumer and industry appreciation through the quality and versatility of our solutions.”
Mapei is the head partner of the International Concrete Sustainability Conference for the concrete industry, taking place from November 26 to 27.
It will witness a technical presentation titled ‘New Sustainable Technology To Recover Returned Concrete,’ showcasing the technology that enables the recovery of returned concrete from the site and transforms it into aggregates for reuse in new concrete production and a live practical demonstration of how the Re-Con Zero system actually works. - TradeArabia News Service
