PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGY: Construction-Products Literature

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

BASF issued “The Chemistry of Construction,” a magazine-format brochure that details how chemistry contributes to the built environment in the areas of energy efficiency, durability, and speed of construction. The company also issued “Energy Efficiency in Buildings,” a comprehensive global report on energy challenges and solutions.

 

“Few people understand how chemistry is the key building block of construction,” said Jack Armstrong, leader, construction initiative North America for BASF. “This may be because the science is often behind the walls or hidden within a product that is generally understood. With these publications, we hope to educate everyone, including city planners, architects, builders, homeowners and even high school science students, about the critical role chemistry plays in improving our built environment.”

 

The company, which offers a wide range of construction products, said the “Chemistry of Construction” brochure shows how chemistry improves energy efficiency, durability, and speed of construction, specifically in schools, homes, bridges, and office buildings. “Energy Efficiency in Buildings” details simple, cost-effective solutions that help to improve indoor comfort, decrease heating and cooling equipment needs, and reduce energy use. The 28-page publication also reviews new energy regulations around the world, features groundbreaking, international demonstration projects, and presents a comprehensive study on the effectiveness of thermal insulation in different climates in eight
countries.

 

Armstrong also said the company plans to launch by year-end an “online campus” for architects, which will offer free courses on topics such as the use of spray polyurethane foam for insulation and air barriers; the eco-efficiency of roofing insulation systems; and high-performance exterior insulating finishing systems (EIFS) for sustainable construction.
