In 2012 Alfix was Winner of Danish Building Industry’s Environment Award presented by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik. Alfix is now nominated for the Environment Award 2016.
Nomination is on the grounds of a new sustainable tile adhesive - Alfix QuickFix premium. The new green Alfix tile adhesive will see its market introduction at the coming leading Danish construction trade fair, Byggeri ’16, which opens in Fredericia on 1st March 2016.
Alfix QuickFix premium is a high-quality, rapid-setting natural stone adhesive containing re-used rawmaterial in the form of recycled, crushed glass from old bottles and delivered in sustainable FSC-certified paper bags. Paper used for the bags originates from responsible and well-managed forests only.
In terms of working environmental considerations, the Alfix adhesive also offers a number of advantages. Due to the addition of light fillers, both mixing and fixing are made with less effort, and the light fillers ensure a good workability as the mixture will feel less viscous and weigh less on the fixer’s trowel. The use of light fillers also extends the coverage of Alfix QuickFix premium with up to 20% since the yield of a 20 kg bag corresponds to 25 kg of a conventional tile adhesive. Extended coverage will further reduce the negative influence from CO2 release caused by transport due to an overall reduction in total weight.
Finally, the new Alfix tile adhesive holds by far the lowest emission witin its class and hence, causes no health damaging impact on indoor climate.
