Aggregate Industries launch DYNAMax

AI’s DYNAMax opens up a range of application opportunities for the business, including infrastructure

New high-performance concrete reinforces company’s commitment to circular economy

AGGREGATE Industries have launched DYNAMax – a new high-performance concrete that reinforces the company’s commitment to building progress towards a more sustainable construction industry. 

DYNAMax will complement Aggregate Industries’ existing range of low-carbon concrete products, whilst opening up a wide range of application opportunities, such as infrastructure projects, high-rice residential/commercial buildings, and institutional and special construction.

Designed for technically demanding structures, DYNAMax provides increased functionality, flexibility, and freedom in design for both architects and engineers, and ensures more usable space for the same building volume, such as increased number of floors within the same building height. The sustainable concrete also allows thinner cross-sections for columns, walls and slabs to be used, as well as substantially longer spans and longer column grids.

In application, it offers the same working processes as conventional concrete; excellent pumping properties and high early strength, durability and rigidity. Easy to lay, DYNAMax offers faster and more effective construction processes with reduced workforce requirements, supporting resource efficiency and reduction of carbon footprint over the whole construction lifetime. It can also be enabled by smart digital technology for end-to-end processes and product control.

DYNAMax is fully recyclable – contributing to a positive circular economy – and can be produced locally, reducing transportation journey times, and helping to deliver on more environmentally friendly and eco-balanced buildings. In situ, the high durability of DYNAMax is said to significantly increase the technical service life of buildings, as well as minimizing maintenance and lifecycle costs.

Lee Sleight, managing director of AI’s ready-mixed concrete division RMX Concrete, said: ‘At Aggregate Industries, we’re committed to delivering multi-dimensional value to all our product solutions and services, which includes contributing towards a more sustainable future. DYNAMax pushes the boundaries of engineering design to help build more for less with clear benefits for clients and designers such as increased design freedom, lower material demand, ease of placement and increased sustainable benefits, all without compromising on performance.’
