Enabling the construction industry to succeed while
saving precious resources The "water savings"
technology that Oryx Enterprises are currently
marketing and distributing exclusively in 13
countries including and surrounding the Middle East
is SINAK S-102. The manufacturer, SINAK Corporation,
has been producing S-102 for more than a quarter of
a century however with all of the construction
taking place (in excess of $5 Trillion and growing)
the curing properties of S-102 have been our focus
as this accounts for over 40% of the potable water
usage in the region.
Water-curing of concrete typically involves Hessian
and plastic to cover the concrete but ALWAYS
involves potable water. Here in the Middle East
region the use of potable water for curing related
activities is to the tune of 107,000 liters per
second. The volume of potable water used in our
region over the next two years alone will be in
excess of 21,000,000,000 gallons (21 billion).
Besides removing the need to use potable water, the
other benefits of using S-102 for curing is that the
test results achieved are better than those in
water-curing, it is cheaper, it takes less labor and
time and it produces NO waste. S-102 is
environmentally friendly, there are no VOCs and it
is non-flammable and non-toxic as well. Although
there has been resistance to try new ideas, there
have not been any legitimate reasons anyone
(contractors, engineers, owners, etc.) can provide
to not use S-102 instead of water.
Through persistence, Oryx Enterprises has already
seen the benefits across Qatar and the U.A.E. over
the past six months where water savings in excess of
500 million gallons have been realized. We expect
these water savings to increase exponentially in the
future as it becomes more widely used and expanded
to different global regions.
