BASF to Exhibit Its Solutions at Ecobuild 2012

Chemical company BASF will exhibit its solutions, which can be used to create energy efficient buildings at the Ecobuild 2012.

The company will also feature the projects where such solutions have been used such as the BASF House in Nottingham, Tata’s Sustainable Building Envelope Centre on Deeside, Jaguar Land Rover training academy at Warwick and government offices in Whitehall. Innovative solutions presented by the company will include insulation foams, phase change materials and pigments for heat management and admixtures for concrete.

The Neopor which is expandable polystyrene will be used in an external thermal insulation composite system to display the insulation ability of the solution. Although the material Styrodur has been used in homes for protection against heat and cold for many years, the company will demonstrate how the material can be used for inverted roof insulation. The material Styrodur absorbs very little water which makes it possible for insulation and increases the life of buildings.  The material called Basotect is now being used in the construction sector due to its ability to absorb sound, resistance to fire and low weight. Other materials include, WALLTITE spray, which provides a joint-less and seamless finish, the PCI Geofug which makes joints repellent to dirt, grease and oil, the MASTERTOP range of resin flooring systems, phase change material Micronal, and topcoat products such as PLASTICERAM which has been designed for outdoor use and POLYCERAM which is based on polyurethanes and is resistant to aging and weathering.
