DYNAMax pushes the boundaries of what is possible and gives you access to unrivaled expertise, experience and know-how in concrete. In combination with other products from the Holcim range, it opens up a new world of building with concrete.

 

Key benefits of building with DYNAMAX

More design freedom
 

  • Use thinner cross-sections for columns, walls and slabs
  • Build larger spans and longer column grids
  • Enjoy slender design with the same or higher load bearing capacity
  • Gain improved functionality and more usable space for the same building volume
  • Build an increased number of floors with the same building height
  • Achieve greater variability in the layout of the floor plan

 Sustainability and durability
 

  • Reduce your building’s overall carbon footprint by lowering material demand
  • Execute structures with less concrete and steel reinforcement
  • Employ local production in existing ready-mix concrete plants
  • Cut back on transport with short routes and lower concrete volume
  • See an increased technical service life for your building
  • Minimize maintenance and lifecycle costs

 

Ease of placement
 

  • Use the same working processes as for conventional concrete
  • Implement faster and more effective construction processes with reduced workforce requirements
  • Provide improved working conditions on the construction site
  • Cut the total cost of construction with high early strength development

1. Exposed components: the dense pore structure ensures extremely resistant surfaces, increases service life and reduces maintenance costs of the load bearing structure.

2. Large spans: high compressive strength and rigidness enable slender concrete construction with wide spans.

3. Columns and beams: smaller cross-sections require less valuable space, thus increasing the usable area.

4. Slabs: reduced thickness allowing the separation of the supporting structure and building utilities, thus speeding up the construction process and facilitating later adjustments.

5. Parking garages: slim supporting structures simplify traffic routing, increase the number of parking bays and create more room height.

6. Stairways and elevator shafts: reduced wall thickness increases the usable area.

Case Study: MIRO

DYNAMax has already gotten a start at MIRO, an A class office building in Bucharest, Romania that features 23,000 square meters of leasable area spread out over five levels with a large outdoor plaza.

1  max. 750 Coulombs in Rapid Chloride Penetration Test (RCPT), acc. to the ASTM C 1202 categorized as as “very low” Cl-Ion penetration. For further information on the local product range please contact your local HOLCIM RMX Sales team. 

2  minimum elastic modulus of 40 GPa determined by testing in accordance with local country standard. For further information on the local product range please contact your local HOLCIM RMX Sales team.
