Mineral foam technology for low-cost insulation of floor, wall and roof systems
Airium aims at making the insulation of building envelopes affordable and accessible in developing countries, easy to use for applicators and building professionals, as well as sustainable, long lasting and recyclable. Among others, it can be used for the insulation of flat roofs to build and insulate at the same time. Airium replaces the Polystyrene based insulation most commonly used on roofs as well as the standard concrete slope built to evacuate water. In doing so, this system solution removes several layers of the traditional construction systems and, combined with the fact that it is easy to work with and to shape when freshly poured, it speeds up the roof system application time for both new buildings and renovation. Foamed onsite out of purely local ingredients, Airium Thermoroof has less embodied carbon than the alternative system, encourages a bigger chunk of the building stock to go for insulation thanks to its lower cost and is entirely recyclable when end of life comes.
