NoviMal – a perfect partner for you and your walls

Our customers are already very well familiar with the fact that CRH Serbia is continuosly working on introduction of new products and on development of the present product range. Since March  2014, CRH has been producing NoviMal, a binder, which represents an advanced, unique masonry and plastering solution.

Masonry and plastering binder, NoviMal, is delivered to customers in 25kg bags, palletized and protected with a high-quality foil. On customer’s request, it can be delivered in bulk and transported in tanks to the final consumer.

Product development

The idea to produce NoviMal originated from the intention to help a large number of customers bying masonry and plastering binders by offering them this binder thanks to which they do not have to add cement when preparing masonry and plastering mortars. How have we achieved this? We have changed the former binder content formula and thus obtained a new product with improved important properties.

The new product of CRH Serbia is intended for professionals, as well as for those who need partner support for successful execution of works. NoviMal is an ideal solution for masonry and plastering works. Its preparation and usage according to the DIY principle is easy and simple. NoviMal is a perfect partner for you and your walls.

Mortar mixtures with NoviMal are of uniform quality and extended workbaility time, by which all requirements for successful masonry and plastering works have been met. We have to point out that after having conducted a testing of mortar mixtures with NoviMal at the Institute for Testing of Materials (IMS) in Belgrade,  we have established a special masonry mortar mix design for interior and exterior masonry works.
