Bamburi Cement has launched its ready-to-use tile adhesive commencing its entry into the specialized mortar sector in Kenya.
‘Bamburi TectorCeram SETI 300’ is designed for placement of porous tiles including ceramic, terracotta, earthenware and natural stone tiles.
It is a cement based product produced from sourced raw materials, including chemical admixtures and sand.
Speaking at the launch, Bamburi Cement’s Head of Innovation and Technical Services, Fidelis Sakwa said the introduction of the new product was in response to consumer needs and aligned to global construction trends in modern tiling which require more specialized tile adhesive solutions.
"Innovation is a key lever in the company’s Building for Growth strategy, and today’s milestone is a result of continuous investment in research and development coupled with paying close attention to our customer’s needs," Sakwa said.
He noted the shifting trends in tiling in residential houses, shopping complexes, offices, restaurants, hospitals, educational institutions, hotels, among others influenced the launch of Bamburi TectorCeram SETI 300.
Bamburi Cement’s Sales Director, Kanyi Gitonga said: “One of the challenges in the building industry today, is the prevalence of popping out, cracking and falling of tiles."
The new tile adhesive is said to favour interior tiling solutions such as floor and wall applications and only requires the addition of water on site.
Bamburi Cement’s Managing Director Seddiq Hassani said the company's diversification of its product portfolio allows it to further differentiate, grow in new segments and enhance value for customers and stakeholders.
