During the exhibition, Mapei will launch Mapestone System, which is a complete solution to obtain durable, long-lasting architectural stone road surfaces resistant in extreme temperatures. Featuring exceptional characteristics that produce high durable finished work that saves time and money in maintenance or repairs, these pre-blended cementitious products are used for stone and screed installation, block stone paving, and grouting joints and architectural flagstone. The combined use of these products creates a long-lasting monolithic structure, and is widely used for repairing ancient pedestrian zones and streets.

In addition, Mapei will display the new colored grouts, the only one of its kind in the market for the vastness of its range of products and the wide choice of colours. A range that meets every requirement in ceramic tile laying, whatever the surroundings, whether it is residential, commercial or industrial. The colours are divided into five different collections: Serene, Traditional, Natural, Romance and Glamour. The aim is to make it easier to choose the right grout according to the requirements of each particular project and the personal preferences of each client.

Moreover during the exhibition, Mapei will focus on highlighting a range of products for LVT floors and is launching “Flexcolor 4 LVT”, an acrylic flexible grout which, when fixed on a luxury vinyl tile (LVT), allows the installer to create an effect similar to the joints between stone and ceramic. This product was used on all the floors of Dubai Future Foundation, a government entity that provides innovative services integrating both public and private sectors. The product complies with the certified eco sustainability standards and international programs aimed at safeguarding health and the environment.

Stefano Iannacone, Regional Director of Mapei Construction Chemicals LLC, said: “We see a huge potential in the market for LVT with the increasing amount of hotel and domestic refurbishments in the UAE. Additionally, with the upcoming projects in the pipeline due to the approaching Expo 2020, we have witnessed an increase of architecture stone suppliers using cement mortar. Through this
exhibition, we are looking forward to sharing our best product systems and know-how in supplying reliable and economical solutions.”
