DESIGNING ECO- SUSTAINABILITY

Preventing heat loss and minimizing energy usage in buildings, improving acoustic insulation, or using more sustainable or recyclable materials are all ways that Arkema solutions help make our homes and cities greener.

“Greener” roads

Recycling existing materials when building or repairing roads helps cut down on the amount of new aggregate needed for the job. Adding Cecabase RT® additives to asphalt increases the use of recycled aggregate by up to 70% compared to standard technology, by making it easier to mix into the asphalt. The additives also lower the asphalt’s application temperature, cutting energy usage by as much as 50%.

Transparent noise barriers

Recognized for its sound insulating properties, Altuglas® PMMA can be used as a noise barrier on highways, beltways and other high-traffic roads. The biggest advantage of Altuglas® PMMA barriers is transparency, of course. They let the light through and blend into their surroundings.

Smart windows

Siliporite® molecular sieves are tiny beads that adsorb around a third of their weight in water. Window manufacturers use them to prevent condensation in double-pane windows. Placed inside a frame between the panes, the sieves protect the window’s features for decades. Another product, Certincoat®, is a huge plus in cold climates. This low-emissivity flat-glass coating makes windows smarter by letting sunlight in and keeping heat from escaping. The end result: heating savings of 30%.

White roofs as an alternative to air conditioning

White roofs and building walls in sunny countries reflect light... More
White roofs and building walls in sunny countries reflect light and allow people to cut back on air conditioning. White paint that is protected by a top coat containing Kynar Aquatec® PVDF acrylic resin offers much higher light reflectance than conventional paint. Kynar Aquatec® keeps the paint white for nearly 20 years, without maintenance, and lowers the need for air conditioning by 15%.

Gas for reversible
air conditioning

Reversible air-conditioning systems, or heat pumps, are gaining popularity in the residential market. Easy to use and producing three to four times less carbon than a fossil-fuel-fi red furnace, they keep temperatures optimal year round, providing heat in the winter and cool in the summer. Forane®410A is recognized as one of the most efficient refrigerants for heat pumps.

A coating to keep walls snug

Bostik has developed a leveling coat that provides thermal insulation... More
Bostik has developed a leveling coat that provides thermal insulation and reduces heat loss by 15%. It preps interior walls for painting just like conventional coatings. It’s an ideal choice for renovating old buildings and improving their thermal insulation.

Beautiful, quiet flooring

What could be nicer than a wood floor that doesn’t lose its shine... More
What could be nicer than a wood floor that doesn’t lose its shine and doesn’t scratch? The secret to getting one? Install fl ooring already coated with fast UV-cured Sartomer® resins. This coating protects against scratches and stains for years. Install it with Bostik’s AxiosTM Tri-LinkingTM polymer technology; it is much more than an adhesive. The membrane it forms when dry keeps the wood from splitting, acts as a barrier against substrate moisture and dampens sound by 38 decibels — leaving you with a comfortable living environment and happy ears.

For backlit signs, Arkema has developed Altuglas® PMMA sheets with outstanding light transmission. Lighting intensity can be reduced by 20% and the sheets can be paired with energy-efficient LED lamps. Not a bad way to shrink your power bill.

Synaqua® resin can be used to formulate waterborne, solvent-free paints that have the same high gloss and resistance as conventional solvent-based ones. Made 97% from bio-based materials, the resin can be used to produce paints with very low rates of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Its main applications are in interior decorating. Coapur® thickeners optimize paint texture and viscosity, helping them go on easier without splattering.
