SAKRET dry mortar:

SAKRET dry mortar
Back to basics. Durable, non-depreciating, optimum structural
and living environment properties: mineral mortars with their
natural raw materials such as sand, marble, quartz and limestone
have been a popular choice for centuries. That’s why they are
still held in the highest esteem by architects and builders today.
Leaving nothing to chance
It was an idea that would transform the construction industry. Instead of supplying mortars and
concrete as on-site mixes as was the case in the past, the American construction engineer Arthur
C. Avril hit upon the idea in 1936 of manufacturing the ingredients as exact formulae for readymixed dry-mortar mixes on an industrial scale. He called his invention SAKRETE – a derivative of
“sack” and “concrete”.
Four German entrepreneurs recognised the potential of this invention in 1966 and smoothed the
path for it to become an unparalleled European commercial success under the brand name SAKRET.
The innovation in this idea was that it not only improved the individual technical characteristics in a
product category, but simultaneously redefined the full on-site sequence of events. This brought
with it a host of advantages – namely time-saving, improved performance and lower costs. In
concrete terms: industrial ready-mixed dry mortar has made manufacturing easier and faster and
the results safer and better. Even today, professional builders still assess the quality of a product or
system on the basis of workability and result.

SAKRET: The future of construction
Built to last. In addition to environmental demands
for energy and material-efficient building methods,
there is also the need to ensure new and existing
architecture blend together harmoniously. Only when
buildings from different construction eras sit happily
side by side can we create cities, settlements and street
patterns that generate a positive social atmosphere.
Between innovation and sustainability
The era of the individual is on everyone’s lips. It’s easy for anyone to work out what that means for
modern architectural and living aesthetics. In built-up surroundings we are constantly being
confronted by new shapes, styles and material combinations.
This interest in innovation goes hand in hand, however, with another development within the
European construction consciousness – the topic of environmental responsibility. After all, buildings
– well-designed or otherwise – are “permanent” features that have a lasting impact on their
surroundings. At the same time, a second reality is emerging in addition to the aesthetic-social
dimension that cannot be ignored: the construction industry’s mammoth consumption of materials
and power. Both aspects undoubtedly bear partial responsibility for the climatic and environmental
changes being felt everywhere. Sustainable construction is therefore an indisputable criteria
– and rightly so – for current and future building projects. But that’s no problem for SAKRET. The
SAKRET product systems already maintain a balance between both expectations: technical and
aesthetic innovation poses no contradiction to the demand for permanence of structural function.
SAKRET: The competition

The construction industry is in flux – and that on a European scale. On the one hand there is an

demonstrated during all crises on a global scale.
SAKRET: The professionals
In the spotlight. The number of customers who regard a master
builder’s expertise as something worth paying for and investing
in is steadily increasing. They don’t want “off the peg”solutions
that offer limited material resilience and aesthetic permanence.
Instead the trend is in customised quality solutions, as only a
craftsman can provide.
SAKRET: the Professionals
Professionalism always has a future
Expertise means being able to turn knowledge into skill. And the more complex the structural and
technical requirements of the project in question, the more essential is its completion by a suitably
qualified master builder, in compliance with standard regulations and procedures. Particularly in
these times of increasing interregional market activity, with the attendant impact of European
standardisation on laws, standards and guidelines, master builders need to regard this as an
opportunity. After all it is up to them to ensure that quality building work is a matter of course and
not the exception. Despite all pressure to complete on time and in budget. In view of such market
conditions, it is more important than ever to demonstrate at what end of the quality spectrum one
operates – whether as manufacturer, wholesaler, or builder. This will determine what customers are
prepared to accept as credible and durable in terms of services rendered and how much they are
prepared to invest. Add up all these factors and it quickly becomes apparent that only master builders
can be relied upon to carry out building work of a high technical and aesthetic quality.
SAKRET: The one for the job
The logic behind product information. How best to communicate
construction information these days? Definitely application-oriented.
At SAKRET this follows the planning and execution cycle of a
building project. Elements and areas determine not only the building
procedure used, but also the product system selected.
Everyone for himself. Or everyone together
A major building project requires the direct involvement of a number of individuals – the customer,
