Covestro will showcase a variety of high-performance materials and technologies that contribute to a sustainable built environment at Greenbuild International Conference and Expo taking place Nov.18 through 20 in Washington D.C.
The building envelope creates a barrier between the interior and exterior of a building, and a well-designed building envelope is key for energy efficiency, according to the company. Polyurethane insulation products provide high thermal resistance, contributing to heating and climate control in residential and commercial applications. Covestro offers a variety of polyurethane systems and technologies that boost building efficiency and strengthens structures, including spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and raw materials for rigid foam polyisocyanurate insulation boards and insulated metal panels.
Greenbuild attendees will see several real-world applications utilizing polyurethane raw materials from Covestro on display. Highlights will include an impact-resistant exterior door and high-performance composite siding panels for the residential market. Windows with polyurethane composites will also be featured in the booth. The composites are used as high-performing window stiffeners and serve as an alternative to aluminum inserts because they minimize thermal transfer and are corrosion resistant.
According to the company, Covestro’s adhesives are designed for specific building applications including wood flooring and roofing. Sealants for fenestration assemblies such as windows and doors seal gaps and help prevent the infiltration of air and water. Several samples within the booth will showcase these applications and more.
