Holcim launch DYNAMax concrete
High-performance concrete formulated the strength, durability, and rigidity to build more with less
HOLCIM have introduced DYNAMax, a high-performance concrete that is said to deliver high compressive strength, durability, and rigidity with design freedom and sustainability in a broad range of applications, from complex infrastructure to high-rise buildings.
This latest innovation to come out of Holcim’s R&D Centre will be launched in close to 10 markets across Europe, Latin America, North America, and Asia Pacific in 2022.
Holcim chief executive officer Jan Jenisch said: ‘I’m excited by the launch of our DYNAMax high-performance concrete, advancing our global range of innovative and sustainable building solutions.
‘With today’s population and urbanization trends, DYNAMax is an ideal material to build smarter cities. It offers high performance to build more with less, with no compromise on aesthetics and functionality.’
For demanding construction projects, DYNAMax enables smart design with thinner and longer structures and higher functionality. With optimal material use, it also allows more usable space and greater variability in floor plans, whilst its durability minimizes the maintenance and lifecycle costs of a building.
Holcim say the product’s sustainable footprint is driven by reduced material use, local production, and short transport routes, as well as its circular and fully recyclable profile.
