WHAT'S NEW AT KWINBUILD CEMENT,
The appointment of Russell Bailey as the new GM of our KWIKtile business.
We launched our KWIKtile Adhesive range in early 2016 and over the past year we have managed to establish ourselves in the market with much success. We have learnt much about the tile adhesive market and have invested significant time and resource in the development of the various products and are now confident to say our products are much improved and can stand toe to toe with any of the industry leaders!
To further develop this business, we recently appointed Russell Bailey as the new GM. Russell has over 15 years’ experience within the adhesive industry, having worked at both Henkel Tylon and BASF -Matoppie to a name a few. We are confident Russell will use his experience to further improve the quality of both the products and service and are excited to welcome him to our team.
We have also recently changed the packaging of our adhesive products and feel the new look is more attractive and further differentiates us from our competition – we would be interested to get your feedback so please feel free to comment.
KWIKLITE GYPSUM BASED FINISHING PLASTER
We have recently launched KWIKlite which is a light-weight, gypsum based multipurpose finishing plaster that is suitable for providing a highly polished smooth finish, a brushed finish or a textured finish and is manufactured to the following standards:
EN13729 Part2 (Type B4)
This finishing plaster market has historically been dominated by two major players and we are confident we can now offer our customers a product that is equal in quality yet more competitively priced.
WHATS TO COME
By popular request, we will be launching a CEM II (B-M) 42.5N cement. Many of our customers have the need for a 42,5N within their various applications and retail requirements so after significant R&D, we have finally made our application with the SABS and are confident this will be approved before the end of May 2017.
We feel this is great news for our customers as it will now allow greater flexibility when ordering as the option for split loads, one point of contact and one account now exists with us. This together with our KWIKtile range and KWIKlite products, provides our customer with a comprehensive range of products all under one roof with a single delivery!
KWIKROAD CEM II (B-M) 32.5N
Currently we offer a road stabilization cement in the category of CEM V/A (S-V) 32.5N. Through much research and investigation with the various soil laboratories, road engineers, civil companies and SANRAL – the need to move this product to a CEM II classification has been identified. Again, we have made the submission with the SABS and are confident to have approval for this before the end of May 2017.
Cement, especially when used in conjunction with extenders such as Slagment and Fly ash, is very effective in stabilising a wide range of soils, including granular materials, silts and light clay’s. It is designed to control the plasticity and enhance the strength of various road making materials. By reducing the permeability of the soil, the properties of standard and sub-standard in situ soils are greatly enhanced. This results in a moisture resistant material that is more durable and impervious to leaching over the long term.
