The building materials company says DYNAMax will be launched in close to ten markets across Europe, Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific in 2022. Holcim says DYNAMax is suitable for a broad range of applications, from complex infrastructure to high-rise buildings.

Holcim CEO Jan Jenisch commented: "With today’s population and urbanization trends, DYNAMax is an ideal material to build smarter cities. It offers high performance to build more with less with no compromise on aesthetics and functionality.”

DYNAMax is designed to enable smart design, with thinner and longer structures and higher functionality. With optimal material use, it allows more usable space and greater variability in floor plans.

Holcim says its durability minimises maintenance and lifecycle costs of a building. Its sustainable footprint is driven by reduced material use, local production and short transport routes as well as its circular and fully recyclable profile.

DYNAMax is said to offer the broadest range of high-performance concrete, delivering superior compressive strength along with additional technical benefits from rigidity to durability. Holcim says its high-performance offers value to all stakeholders across the construction value chain, from architects and designers to homeowners.
