- Clean and efficient production with reduced wastage and increased productivity.
- Reduces manual handling and the risk of injury in production, for improved health and safety.
Durability and resistance
CEMEX Dry Silo Mortar is also extremely durable due to the controlled method of manufacture and the type and quality of the constituent materials used. The entrainment of controlled amounts of air makes the mortar less susceptible to frost attack. The admixture used is chloride-free and therefore not aggressive towards embedded metallic objects. Factory produced mortars exhibit superior resistance to rain penetration and therefore make a significant contribution to the durability of masonry.
CEMEX Dry Silo Mortar when blended with water offers excellent workability without an excessive air content, the inclusion of which can weaken the bond and flexural strength.
Since April 2018, CEMEX Dry Silo Mortar have been supplying several sites at Wembley Stadium as part of the on-going £3 billion regeneration at Wembley Park.
In early 2018, Quintain, the company behind the project, announced plans for a further 250,000 sq. ft of shops, restaurants and bars to be built on the 85-acre site, which will double what has already been constructed.
