Traditionally, heat absorbing materials have been used, but from the start of the century heat absorption materials have become more common due to their improved efficiency, ease of installation and lesser cost.
What areas do your products cater to?
Our products cater for a wide variety of segments including a plethora of industries from automotive, electronics, shipping, manufacturing, defense and logistics.
What are the ways in which you plan to tackle your customers’ concerns?
We provide heat insulation solutions for roofs and walls of buildings. It is our experience that manufacturing sectors are the highest gainers when they opt for insulating their factory buildings. A lower working temperature reduces searing and fatigue. The dehydration of the body reduces considerably resulting in long term health benefits. We have also noticed a marked reduction in absentees since the working environment gets conducive due to heat insulation. All types of roofs from traditional asbestos/ AC sheets, galvanized sheets to gal volume sheets, concrete and false roofing can be insulated. We enjoy a leading position in insulating. One of the unique selling points is ‘FIRE RETARDANT’ capabilities due to which it is preferred over other contemporary insulating products in the market.
