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

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

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.

Popular silicone resin paint from Alfix is the durable choice

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

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!
