10 years as proud sponsor at DM in SKILLS

At this year’s DM (National Championship) in SKILLS, Alfix once again supports the young tiling apprentices. The co-operation was initiated 10 years ago, and both organizer and Alfix are pleased with the co-operation.

“At DM in SKILLS 2011, we were main sponsor for the tile fixing skill for the first time. Primarily, because we wanted to boost the knowledge about the important professions and crafts in Denmark and secondarily, because it made perfectly sense for us as first Danish manufacturer of tile adhesives and grouts to support the profession and participate in the education of young up-coming talents.

We now support both at the technical colleges during training and educational courses and at the actual competitions where apprentices work with our products when solving their tile fixing assignment”, explains Anders Bertelsen Toft, CCO at Alfix.

The co-operation between Alfix and DM in SKILLS has extended over the years and resulted in a dedicated partnership with mutual respect for the arrangement. Here follows a statement from the national tile fixing coach and educator Lars Skibdal Schmidt:

“The co-operation with Alfix as main sponsor for the tiling apprentices has worked excellent during the whole time. At every training course and during all the competitions, Alfix has always shown sincere involvement and interest for our activities”.

According to the national coach, the Alfix sponsorship has been an invaluable help to the SKILLS organization in terms of continuous development and improvement of the participants in preparation for national and international championships.

“When looking back at the last ten years’ development within the tile fixing profession at tech colleges throughout the country, we would simply not have been able to participate at international competitions without the sponsorship from Alfix”, tells Lars Skibdal Schmidt and elaborates that the SKILLS organization from the very beginning has used products from Alfix at every training session and competition and with the tile adhesive Alfix Letfix as the absolute favourite choice among the participants. Alfix Letfix excels in a number of properties: Easy to apply, long open time and a minimum of tool cleaning.

“The new and improved Alfix grouts also receive nothing but praise and positive response from the participants, so it has always been easy to persuade any team to use Alfix regardless of their preferences” , concludes the coach.

DM in SKILLS 2021 was held as a somewhat smaller edition of the usual DM because of Covid-19 restrictions. As from 26 - 29th August 2021, TECH COLLEGE Aalborg hosted the national championship for tiling apprentices. Four apprentices from all parts of Denmark competed for the much wanted award.

Durable concrete repair with new wear-resistant tanking system

3 new products make up the tanking system for surface treatment of concrete: PlaneMix ST 05 (bonding and repair mortar), PlaneMix ST 05 Fluid (polymer dispersion) and PlaneMix R4 Rep (concrete repair mortar).

“Since the introduction earlier this year, our new tanking system for surface treatment of concrete has found use in many interesting and different building projects. The system has among others found use for surface treatment and tanking of garage floors, exterior stairways and large-sized swimming pools”, says Flemming Ilsøe, Technical Manager with Alfix.

“Our new PlaneMix products have also been used for pore-filling and surface treatment of old concrete, such as exterior stairs and balconies. The products may be used effectively in private residences with a growing need to solve problems with moisture due to an overall rise in precipitation. With our new system, we have also been involved in large repair jobs on habour sites”, continues Flemming Ilsøe.

The Alfix Sales Dep. also reports positively about the market introduction.

“The customers have welcomed our new niche products. We have several examples of merchants wishing to expand their total purchase from us which means that – apart from already buying our levelling compounds, tile adhesives, grouts and facade rendering system – they now want to include the new tanking system to complete their Alfix range. By doing this, these merchants will be able to supply tile fixers and brick layers with 100% Danish high-quality products for a great number of different jobs” states Claus Bernd Høgdal, Sales and Marketing Manager with Alfix

Meet an Alfix employee – Thomas from the laboratory

Thomas Westergaard is daily head of the lab, and the experienced Alfix employee would like to tell the following about his everyday work life at Alfix:

- Could you briefly describe your own department and its functions?

“Our department is responsible for an ongoing test procedure of incoming raw materials as well as manufactured products – testing is made alongside the production on a daily basis. The final control of products will ensure that every Alfix product is flawless to all times and meets the standards specified.

- Which assignments are you responsible for as head of the department?

“In close collaboration with my five good colleagues, I plan, organize and control the products in the lab. We do production controls, R&D and follow-ups on complaints.

- When do you experience a particularly good day at work?

“When the production runs as scheduled and the controls confirm the right product properties, we are happy and high spirited – even if we are very busy. A positive vibe and mood spreads all over the factory and everything loosens up, and work becomes easier. And it is nice to receive praise from eg the Sales Dep. if a customer has expressed his satisfaction with a particular product, which I have participated in developing.

Positive responses always boost the motivation. Icing on the cake: If Alfix delivers a lovely cake to accompany the coffee as was the case just recently when we celebrated having reached 1500 LinkedIn followers. I now look forward to achieving 1500 followers on Facebook”.

Alfix in sophisticated company with Arne Jacobsen design icons

New Arch is the name of the new-built, beautiful Aarhus School of Architecture situated on the old Godsbanegrund (former railway goods yard area) and is due for opening October 2021.

As Danish manufacturer, we are pleased to be placed in such sophisticated company with the stylish, classy and world-famous Arne Jacobsen fixtures fitted in all school bath- and toilet rooms. These design icons are rooted back to the 60es – being the very decade in which Alfix was founded with the production of our first tile adhesives and grouts (1963).

A number of our products have been used for this astonishing school building: Sealing Primer, 2K Sealing Membrane, LetFix tile adhesive and Universal Grout – Cerafill 10; products that form a durable and reliable background or foundation for the more eye catching Danish design interior to shine.

Danish red and white in the blue swimming pool wate

It is no secret that the building sector is experiencing a boom in activity and ongoing projects. This also extends to the construction of many new swimming pools and various renovation projects – all made possible by Danish Alfix.

A lot exciting swimming pools are being built for private clients at the moment due to factors including the ongoing restrictions on travel and the fact that many people in Denmark have some spare cash in their pockets from extra holiday pay, free equity in their homes, etc.

From the Alfix perspective, however, the large public-sector pool projects are the ones that take up the most space volume-wise and in relation to the important associated guidance.

“Alfix has more than 45 years of experience in building swimming pools in Scandinavia. We have developed materials specifically for swimming pools and our painstaking approach to products, systems and guidance alike stems from a clear ambition to show responsibility in relation to both construction financing and the development of durable, sustainable solutions,” explains Carsten Schultz, Technical Manager at Alfix and a specialist in swimming pools.

Carsten originally trained as a mason and a building designer, and according to him, swimming pool construction is often a matter of public sector funding. In this regard, it is essential that the contractors and craftsmen are fully familiar with the special requirements that apply to the choice of materials. Alfix not only supplies construction materials, but also provides advice and guidance in building pools that require only minimal maintenance, while generating plenty of great experiences for their users.

Asked about Alfix’s role before, during and after these often complex construction projects, he replies:

“At the end of the day, we see our role as building bridges between the different professional contracts so that everyone is speaking the same language before the work even starts. This is the best way to guard against costly misunderstandings.”

Alfix is also represented at Trongårdsskolen school in Lyngby, north of Copenhagen. Here the Danish Alfix products are being used in a 25-metre pool, in the bare foot area and in the changing facilities. Rambøll is the consultant, JDN Entreprise A/S is the chief contractor, and CC-Fliser is company performing the actual masonry work.

Alfix products used in the project: PlaneMix S40 (Pool and concrete repair mortar), PlaneMix 100 (Fast-setting screeding mortar), Epoxy Primer, Epoxy Membrane, ProFix flexible tile adhesive, FlexBinder, C2 Epoxy (Acid-resistant grout and tile adhesive) and IndustryFuge CeraFill 18.

Meet an authentic “Alfixer” – Michael from production

A member of the Alfix production staff, Michael Valentin has been with the company since January 1998; he is an old hand at the Kolding factory, running tasks on one of three machines that make powder products. This is how he describes his work assignments:

“As a process operator on our Yellow machine, it’s my job to produce finished goods for our warehouse, which then takes care of the onward delivery. There’s a production plan, updated daily, that explains what we are to make that day. As Alfix can run products on the basis of customer requests, the plan is always flexible. We can switch products on the machine at extremely short notice, so my working day is often exciting and challenging. Another of my responsibilities as process operator is to take care of maintaining the machine, so I need to be good with my hands as well.”

_-What makes for a particularly good day at work?

“It starts when you arrive at work in the morning and everyone is happy to see you. And when the machine is running smoothly so we can meet the targets for the products our customers have ordered – all delivered on time, of course,” says Michael Valentin with a smile.

Popular silicone resin paint from Alfix is the durable choice

This attractive, modernist home has recently been upgraded using Alfix DuraDec 8000 SR – silicone resin-based façade paint – in white. Ready for the Danish summer and all the subsequent seasons of changing, demanding weather conditions.

”“We’re absolutely delighted with the result. We chose the Alfix façade product on account of its superior durability and its capacity to combat the development of algae. It’s also a huge plus that the product features authentic Danish quality and comes from a company that has been based locally in Kolding for generations,” say Anne-Mette Moberg and Thomas Rasmussen. A big thank you to the home-owners for their positive feedback.

Beneath the breathable, water- and dirt-repellent façade paint lies a layer of Alfix DuraPuds 703 (through coloured thin coat finishing mortar). The home is therefore “well-dressed” and properly protected with a comprehensive Danish façade system from Alfix. DuraDec 8000 SR features façade durability of up to 20 years, and many professional painters affirm that it is extremely good to work with. And as a dash of green icing on the cake, the plastic bucket the paint is supplied in is naturally made of recyclable plastic. [Click here to find out more about DuraDec 8000 SR]()

Ten years of DuraPuds 710

This year marks the TENTH ANNIVERSARY of our ever-popular DuraPuds 710 (Thin coat bonding mortar). Development in sales of this grey and white Danish mortar has exceeded our wildest dreams, and the steady rise shows no sign of levelling off.

More than a few skilled Danish master masons are now big fans of our popular thin coat bonding mortar. One of them, Master Mason Michael Thomsen from MT BYG, has the following to say: “The 710 is a great universal product for us – it’s really easy to work with. We use it for all kinds of rendering jobs, both indoors and out, and it’s a big plus that we can cover so many areas of use with a single product. The product features two properties I consider particularly important:

  1. The structure of DuraPuds 710 is just about perfect. It’s neither too smooth nor too coarse, and that means a lot to our customers. There are several other well-known rendering products on the market where the finished structure is simply too coarse.
    1. It’s reasonably priced, too.”

The classic Danish bonding mortar garners praise from another master mason, too:

“One of the great strengths of DuraPuds 710 is its workability; the mortar is easy to blend up and the structure of the finished result is right on the money. And, of course, it doesn’t hurt that it’s attractively priced. I only use Alfix products for my façade projects – and have done for years,” says Master Mason Daniel Steengaard Buch from Steengaard Byg ApS.

We’ll add our own 710 x thanks here along with a whole-hearted THANK YOU to everyone who supports us as a family-owned Danish company. Your backing means the world to us! The rendering season is upon us again – click here to find out more about our façade render products!

Danish tile adhesives dressed in red-white colours

The tile adhesives Alfix Profix and Alfix Letfix are true bestsellers within the product range and the two products have therefore been appointed “first movers” in terms of introducing alterations in our packaging design; alterations that will stress the Danish ownership and facilitate recognition. The packaging has been supplied with a small Danish flag along with a product-unique bottom slip, which will make it easier to distinguish one tile adhesive from the other by means of individual colours.

Locally manufactured products with Danish ownership
” In these very weird and unpredictable times, where the demand for local and Danish products sees a remarkably rise, Alfix has chosen to put a small but distinctive logo featuring the national flag on the front of our Alfix Profix and Letfix packaging. This icon tells the story of our Danish background and identity; an identity positively reflected from our customers – not only in Denmark but also throughout Scandinavia”, says Anders Bertelsen Toft, CCO, and 3rd generation of the Alfix family business.

Since its foundation in 1963, Alfix has been owned by the Toft family, and so it will continue to be according the owner family. Eventually, the small Dannebrog logo will lighten up each and every Alfix bag and sack concurrent with the reprint of the packaging.

Individually coloured bottom slip on the Alfix packaging identifies product
Apart from the red-white flag on the packaging, tile fixers, building merchants and other users will now see a blue bottom slip on the Alfix Profix bag and an orange bottom slip on the Alfix Letfix bag. The bottom slip colour is identical with the letter colours used in the product name on the front of the bag. This colour repetition will, hopefully, ease recognition of each Alfix product when stored on pallets or placed in shelves at the builders' merchant or on building sites.

Previously, all Alfix tile adhesive bags were supplied with a white bottom slip with black print. In future, every Alfix tile adhesive will eventually have its own uniquely coloured bottom slip.

2 x 20-years-birthday held in floor level

The 2 Alfix levelling compounds Alfix PlaneMix 20 and Alfix PlaneMix 50 proudly celebrate their 20th birthday

With the message:” The same outstanding properties – every time”, Alfix introduced two high-quality levelling compounds for straightening and levelling subfloors – the optimal products for the installation of ceramic tiles and other top floorings.

In the following, head of R&D, Frank Pingel, elaborates on the background to expand the range of products, which at the beginning of the new millennium mainly consisted of tanking products, tile adhesives and grouts:

” During the late 90’s, we observed a steadily climbing demand for self-levelling compounds from the tile fixers. A growing focus on even and smooth subfloors combined with a tendency towards large-sized tiles required thorough levelling of floors prior to tile fixing and other floorings. A growing demand for levelling compounds lead our owner and managing director, Torben C. Toft, to ask us at the lab whether we would be able to develop and produce fast-setting self-levelling and smoothing compounds. And the answer was: “Yes”, obviously. After intense product development, the two first levelling compounds PlaneMix 20 and PlaneMix 50 saw the light of the day in 2001”.

The products have become a natural part of the Scandinavian building trade, and since 2001 they have levelled approx. 5,000,000m² subfloors in total. And today, PlaneMix 20 and 50 are still among the best-selling products in the PlaneMix-range, which now counts a number of highly-specialized screeding mortars and levelling compounds. For more details read here!

Design floors
Recent years have seen a rise in demand for designer floors, also known as New Yorker floors or industrial looking floors – for domestic and industrial use as well as shop fitting.

Designer floors are seamless cement-based floors without the need for any actual top-flooring. The floors are made with a cement-based levelling compound, such as PlaneMix 20 or PlaneMix 50, and finished with the surface treatment Alfix TopCoat Design.

Martin J Olesen has been an Alfix employee since May 2018, and as from November 2019 he has worked as stores manager at the factory in Kolding. We have asked him about his working day, and we have particularly talked about elements that characterize a remarkably good day at work according to Martin.

-Initially, could you give a brief description of your department?
My department, being the picking stock, counts in all 6 employees. We are about to employ yet another stock worker as order volumes increase.

-Which tasks are you in charge of as stock manager?
My duty is to manage and assign tasks, activate orders and see to it that our stocks tally. I work in close co-operation with the orders office as to when orders are ready for collection or shipment – or in case our customers have special requirements. We always do our very best to meet the requests of our customers.

-Could you highlight other of your functions?
Together, we ensure that all picking locations are filled; we pick items or products, stock pallets, load trucks and move pallets between the various buildings on the plant premises.

How would you describe a particularly good day at work?
That would be a busy day with plenty of orders where we manage to meet every requirement of every customer - within working hours.

Martin is 32 years old, lives in Kolding with his girl friend and their two little girls. In his spare time he focuses on family, friends and sports.

Popular Alfix facade system in Danish holiday and beach town

Med et flot nybyggeri i nordjyske Løkken har Alfix fået endnu en god reference, som involverer brugen af Alfix DuraTherm facadesystem.

With the construction of an attractive new build in Løkken, situated on the west coast of North Jutland, Alfix has gained another fine reference involving the use of Alfix DuraTherm facade solution.

Alfix DuraTherm – Mineral wool is a simplified, user-friendly Danish facade insulation system for both new builds and refurbishment. Here, the facade is covered with mineral wool insulation plates and subsequently applied with a thoroughly-tested and approved Danish system of products for facade rendering.

This project involves a.o. the products Alfix DuraPuds 830 (flexible facade adhesive), Alfix DuraPuds 810 (flexible fibre-reinforced render) and as finish Alfix DuraPuds 804 (flexible thin-coat finishing mortar) in the colour cement-white.

Tile fixer Michael Thomsen, owner of the company Murer Michael in Hirtshals, has been contractor on the project and gives the following statement about his experiences with the Alfix DuraTherm system:

”Alfix DuraPuds products are very convenient and easy to use. We always use Alfix for our many facade projects and recently, we have had several projects with DuraTherm facade insulation system. It works every time and for the actual project here in Løkken, we had an informative start-up talk med the local Alfix sales rep – and that talk really ensured us a good beginning”.

Alfix appreciates the praise – it is a mere pleasure to work with dedicated and skilled craftsmen. Sales of the DuraPuds range have seen an ongoing rise since the introduction approx. 10 years ago and more recently, growth has developed remarkably – to the delight of the entire Team Alfix.

The DuraTherm system offers optimal thermal insulation of the building, environmental consideration, external installation without any notable inconvenience for the owners or residents, internal comfort while rendering revitalizes the whole facade with a beautiful, contemporary and tight appearance in return.

The Alfix history

Alfix was established in 1963 by Hans Carstensen Toft (1916-2003) and remains a family owned Danish company.

H.C. Toft worked on the basis of many years of experience with sales to suppliers of the building and construction industry, and latest as a representative with a wholesaler within ceramic tile manufacture.
