Construction chemicals major Dr Fixit has launched building envelope solutions for roof and walls, for better thermal insulation of buildings. With this launch, the brand seeks to strengthen its low-energy consumption systems and spearhead the propagation of modern solutions against conventional approaches.
“Our endeavour has always been to delight stakeholders with innovative and relevant technology while also being true to the environment. With energy being in short supply across large parts of India, it is essential to create comprehensive solutions that are energy-efficient and best suited for creating sustainable structures,” said Dr Sanjay Bahadur, global CEO, Construction Chemical Division, Pidilite Industries Ltd.
According to specialists at Dr Fixit, a building’s envelope, especially roofs and walls, contribute to as much as 28% and 45% of the energy loss in buildings. Good thermal insulation for the envelope is crucial to prevent heat from seeping in through the exterior of the building. However, most buildings unfortunately don’t offer adequate thermal insulation for the building envelope, thereby unnecessarily enhancing its energy usage, carbon footprint and lifecycle costs. Dr Fixit aims to provide customers with energy-efficient products that offer unmatched performance, provide sustainable waterproofing and insulation solutions with zero maintenance.
The newly launched range of low-energy consumption system includes Dr Fixit LEC system, Dr Fixit Blueseal system, and lightweight concrete under-roofing solutions. For walls, the company offers smart wall insulation finishing system (SIFS), external insulated finishing system (EIFS) and lightweight wall plaster. “These systems enhance the building’s lifecycle by providing better insulation and reducing the overall energy consumption and carbon footprint,” Bahadur said.
