"Pavement jointing mortar made from environmentally friendly raw materials and recycled packaging",

submitted by ROMEX® GmbH.

This year, the Special Prize of Medium-sized Businesses goes to ROMEX® GmbH. The core of the project is a grout with a new binder based on renewable raw materials. In addition, the main ingredient sand was replaced by recycled products. The previous packaging was replaced by recycled plastics from household or commercial waste, and the energy required for production is generated using solar power. Here, a medium-sized company from the construction chemicals sector shows how sustainability can be viewed holistically and implemented in an exemplary manner.

What was previously not possible is now no longer a problem: With the newly developed winter-compatible synthetic resin pavement jointing mortar ROMPOX® - W1000, surfaces can be grouted even when the temperature is below zero. The material hardens perfectly at up to -5° - a real world first by ROMEX®.

No more delays on construction sites due to sub-zero temperatures

The new pavement jointing mortar for winter use!

What was previously not possible is now no longer a problem: With the newly developed winter-compatible synthetic resin pavement jointing mortar ROMPOX® - W1000, surfaces can be grouted even when the temperature is below zero. The material hardens perfectly at up to -5° - a real world first by ROMEX®.

No more delays on construction sites due to sub-zero temperatures

Laying companies on construction sites know this all too well: When winter arrives, delays will almost certainly occur. The temperatures are to blame. Certain materials can then simply no longer be processed - conventional mortar, for example, often needs at least + 7° to harden/cure. Construction site delays are not only nerve-wracking, they are also always associated with costs: downtimes and on-time completion lead to payment delays and even loss of orders. "In order to prevent all of this in the future, we have developed the new ROMPOX® - W1000", says Bert Meurer, managing director of ROMEX® GmbH. "With this world first, construction sites can now be completed even in the cold season." This is not only good for the builders, but also for the laying companies and their employees: "Companies can now also be busy in the winter months, delays can be counteracted in this way, ”says Meurer.

Goodbye lost work!

  • Application temperature down to -5 ° C

The individual who did the the stone Patio took the final payment without completing the job correctly (ie., without edge restraint, inadequate joint compound to ensure stability and no stabilizer). This resulted in an army of ants pouring out from gaps left between the newly created patio stones within a couple of days after the crooked Patio Contractor left. When we called he said he ran out of joint compound. In addition, he charged extra than the original agreed price and giving us a hard time before doing the partially done black stone border as he ran out of the stone. As seniors this was a hard and harrowing experience.

It was a miracle to find ROMEX® Canada and their permeable products. We took a chance and called David, (Vancouver Office). He was kind, supportIve and carefully listened to our issues. He promptly responded to my email and shortly after I received an email from Adrian (Ontario representative). Adrian explained and then sent a written quote confirming the work and associated costs. Upon arrival and before proceeding Adrian surveyed the patio and surrounding area to determine its needs. To ensure integrity and stability he physically built up the uneven areas surrounding the patio with soil and stone so that the ROMEX® product would not slip out.

He then ensured every crevice in the stone patio was properly, power washed, cleaned, filled with joint compound and then completely covered with the stabilizer. His work was meticulous and the ROMEX® product is truly excellent. Adrian also carefully removed, replaced our patio furniture and barbecue then took time to cleanup the areas surrounding the patio area. He also made recommendations about us putting in an edge restraint. Adrian an amazing worker took pride in his work and is truly a credit to the ROMEX® organization. He met the agreed to timelines for the project. Though he had driven a long distance he worked long and hard from the time he came till he left.

Adrian and David after our harrowing process with the previous contractor we are extremely grateful to you for renewing our faith in honest individuals with integrity like you who fulfill commitments they make.

Thank you for an extremely positive experience
