Our performance goals were to drastically reduce the weight and thickness
of single facade elements without compromising their thermal efficiency.

  • A new type of sandwich element and half element
    – Non-flammable
    – Lightweight
    – Mineral based materials for outer layers and insulation
    – Functionalized materials by using nanotechnology
  • A new type of more efficient sealing tape for
    panel joints and façade openings
  • Improved intumescent coating for fire protection
    of anchors and metal substructures
  • The functionalization of insulation
  • Easy-to-clean surface by a super hydrophobic
    surface of the elements and alternatively self-cleaning by
    a photocatalytic, oleophobic layer
  • Increased heat reflectivity by a heat reflective layer –
    the heat reflective layer will increase fire resistance and
    thermal efficiency
