Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE) event supported by BASF

Presenting some of the latest construction technologies from Master Builders Solutions & Senergy


Khobar, Saudi Arabia – August 10, 2018 – Saudi BASF for Building Materials Co., Ltd sponsored PICE, a non-profit organization formed to encourage and expand the networking of the Filipino civil Engineers in Saudi. We presented some of BASF latest construction technologies and products to more than 150 engineers.

The participants were engineers representing key Saudi authorities active in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia, ARAMCO, Sabic, Royal Commission in Jubail and Yanbu, Sadarah and other engineering & consultant Firms.

Eng. Tariq Amro – "Business Segment Manager" presented the Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS) along with the Tiling system solutions and updates on latest technologies especially suited for the growing residential / housing sector which is such a key part of the Saudi Governments future vision.

Eng. Anzad Batharudeen – "Head of Industrial Sector and Business Segments Management" & Eng. Navin Shewani – "Regional Business Segment Manager-Repair, Protection & Performance Grouts", presented MasterSeal 7000 CR - The Solution for Extreme Challenges. Anzad explained "Our new high-performance coating is based on our innovative XolutecTM technology which combines properties that, until now, were all but mutually exclusive e.g flexibility, chemical resistance including biogenic sulphuric acid and damp tolerance. Wastewater-treatment facilities have to prioritize uninterrupted service. When maintenance work is required, this should happen as a planned operation, not as a reaction to an emergency. Additional key requirements include very short downtimes and reliable, durable protection."

Navin added "Even if a new technology is urgently required on the market, potential customers have to be convinced of its effectiveness first. With extensive laboratory and site testing over two years clients can be confident that MasterSeal 7000 CR – the innovative, reliable and highly efficient concrete-waterproofing and protection system from Master Builders Solutions – truly delivers on its promise."
