Mapei Construction Chemicals, a leader in manufacturing of adhesives, sealants and chemical products for the building industry, will display its latest systems and solutions at the Stone & Surface Saudi show, in Saudi Arabia, tomorrow (April 4).

The three-day event runs until April 6, at the the Jeddah Centre for Forums & Events, in Jeddah.

The exhibition is the kingdom’s only event aiming at bringing together the industry’s material and machinery suppliers with specification and procurement decision makers.

Mapei will be sharing some of its most recent product innovations, showcasing a number of developed systems and solutions for waterproofing, installations and renovations of surfaces like ceramics, porcelain tiles, concrete and mosaics, said a statement from the company.

Stefano Iannacone, regional director for the Middle East and East Africa states, Mapei Construction Chemicals, said: “Saudi Arabia is one of the Gulf’s biggest construction markets which we are considering for our business.”

“Since 2016, our company has been focused on increasing its presence within the Saudi market due to both its size and enormous potential. At the moment, the construction market is growing and that has been a huge encouraging factor for us to move forward with projects within that region,” he said.

Some of the products that Mapei will highlight during the exhibition:

•Mapelastic AquaDefense: A ready-to-use, ultra-quick drying, flexible liquid membrane for internal and external waterproofing applications.

Iannacone added: “The Saudi government, like us, has an optimistic outlook on the future of the construction market and has been focusing its attention on the country's infrastructure.”

“This means that there will be no lack in projects that include the construction of schools, hospitals, affordable housing, while also improving the growing country's hospitality industry,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
