SEADMA Vietnam Kick-Off Meeting, 17. July 2018, at Continental Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City

Uniting the Vietnam Drymix Mortar Industry

For the past few years, Vietnam has enjoyed a robust economy and is showing permanently increased building activity. This not only refers to new construction (mainly residential and commercial real estate, tourism investment and development of light industrial zones) but also to an increasing volume of renovation and refurbishment, mostly for the mediocre and fast-built edifices from the boom years 2001 to 2010. Also the infrastructure has seen a lot of improvement and repair.
In this phase, Vietnam definitely needs the influx of construction technology and knowhow, in order to improve building efficiency and overall quality and durability. Investors (both foreign and National) will no longer accept conventional technology and finishing, but rather expect high-class and top-standard buildings. Drymix mortar technology is being used in Vietnam since 1995, but still the main application is skim coats and similar putties. Thus, entrepreneurs in Vietnam have a lot of potential to venture into new applications such as renders (plasters), tile adhesives and grouts, thick and thin screeds, concrete renovation and thermal insulation to just name a few.
The South East Asia Drymix Mortar Association SEADMA is promoting the use of drymix mortars and adjacent technologies (such as machine installation) throughout the territory of ASEAN. Over the past few years, SEADMA has also become an umbrella organization for local chapters which already exist in The Philippines (PhilDMMA), Indonesia (Promindo), Thailand (ThaiDMMA, a sub chapter in Thai Concrete Association TCA) and recently Malaysia (MDMMA). It is the intention of the SEADMA Vietnam Kick-Off meeting to unite the drymix mortar industry of Vietnam, determine the current situation and formulate the goals for the future. SEADMA proposes to form a neutral and independent Vietnam Drymix Mortar Manufacturers Association (VietDMMA) to give the industry the chance to speak in one voice to regulators such as Government Agencies of Institutions as well as see to a proper standardization of drymix mortars. VietDMMA will also coordinate the promotion for mortar applications to come.

Who can join? Any drymix mortar manufacturer active in Vietnam, Industry peers such as raw material and equipment suppliers and/or their distributors are also admitted.

How can I register? Pre-registration is mandatory by e-mail to

What does it cost? The SEADMA  Vietnam Kick-Off Meeting is free of charge for drymix mortar producers (up to 2 delegates per company, additional delegates pay only VND 4.200/ EUR 150). Industry Observers pay EUR 350, reduced to EUR 270 for partners of SEADMA or
