  • HYGROSMART® COVER OVER SYSTEM
    Energy upgrade: modern needs and environment  In recent times, the reduction of corporate and individual carbon footprint and the further minimization of our daily activities that impact global climate has become a priority, as the effects of climate imbalance are now visible in our everyday life, especially in modern cities more than ever before.  For that reason, a building’s energy efficiency improvement and the proper building planning in cities is an urgent need. It may not be widely known, but buildings absorb about 30% of the energy consumption, with 30% of the total emissions coming from them.  Buildings are considered “organisms” that consume, absorb and dissipate energy. Nowadays, the construction industry is creating new development models with an efficient energy saving orientation. Modern building trends aim to reduce energy consumption through the utilization of clean natural resources and systems. This large-scale practice can work in creating microclimates in large cities, favoring the environment.  The shift to energy-efficient "smart" buildings made of environmentally friendly materials, shielding them with proper waterproofing and thermal insulation systems, can be definitely the sign for a better future with improved living standards, especially in densely populated areas. The solution of external thermal insulation   The external thermal insulation composite system increases the energy saving efficiency, by resulting in up to 60% energy savings while reducing the development of carbon emissions created by heating and cooling needs, thus the application is considered as a green and sustainable construction practice.   For the creation of ideal indoor temperature (Winter 20°C - Summer 26°C), the thermal losses need to be as few as possible and the indoor temperature to be slightly affected by the outdoor conditions. There are many factors that affect thermal losses, such as the type of building materials that have been used in the construction or the existence of cracks and thermal bridges.  Therefore, the selection, design and installation of the right external thermal insulation composite system are parameters that determine the energy efficiency in a building and its internal conditions.  ALCHIMICAΤΜ offers the solution: Learn more about the HYGROSMART® COVER OVER SYSTEM, the external thermal insulation composite system.  External thermal insulation in any climatic conditions and environment.   Durability, reliability and aesthetics with the innovative products of ALCHIMICAΤΜ.

Thermal losses are minimized by increasing building materials heat capacity while allowing the walls to breathe. In addition, the system seals the facades against moisture ingression and protects them from cracks due to weather and mechanical stresses. The building’s energy efficiency upgrade offers the ideal thermal comfort and wellness conditions in an internal environment. Fast return of investment A successful application of external thermal insulation contributes substantially to maintain building’s internal temperatures and therefore reduce energy consumption, lowering costs. Thus, the relationship between the investment cost and application benefits starts to pay off in a short period of time. The energy efficient upgrade of a building is definitely a safe investment as it has a fast depreciation due to the reduction of consumption costs for heating and cooling over time. At the same time, building’s commercial value is enhanced as the exterior is upgraded with  the aesthetic touches that are placed in the facades. Aesthetic Perfection You can renew the facades and upgrade your building’s aesthetics with finish coatings in hundrends of colours.

  • Polyurethane Liquid Waterproofing membranes
    The need of waterproofing and protection of constructions for a better future and living conditions has led to new innovations and the use of high state-of-art synthetic polyurethane polymers, the so-called liquid membranes. Polyurethane waterproofing membranes are liquid applied systems that offer decisive advantages particularly where seamless systems are desired; either structurally or aesthetically, and for geometrically complicated connections with ventilation outlets or upturns. These systems cure to yield seamless membranes with long-term flexibility while sealing around even in the most complex protrusions becomes easy. Advantages of Polyurethane liquid waterproofing membranes: · 2 mm coat thickness in 2-3 layers at most. · no significant load increase on lightweight decks and roofs. · UV resistant, no coat protection required. · easy to repair, even locally. · long term maintenance is quick and low cost. Membrane removal will not be necessary, whatever the kind of maintenance. · application on top of existing waterproofing systems is possible. All these benefits make it sound too good to be true but there is a catch: It is critical to success the right choice of material selection from the various alternatives in the market. Therefore, for effective waterproofing, the polyurethane liquid membrane must have the following attributes: · Impermeabillity. Obviously, zero water penetration is required. · Flexibility. They must withstand the normal movements of building structures (e.g. distortion, contortion, earthquake activity etc.). · Durability. They must be able to retain their integrity for long periods of time. · Breathability (sometimes required). Membranes must be able to breathe so that moisture vapours from building interiors and substrates can escape freely. · Humidity barrier (sometimes required). Essential in hot and humid climates. · Resistance. The membrane must withstand environmental and climatic conditions. Not all polyurethane membranes on the market satisfy these criteria! Especially, in the construction industry the importance of applying advanced durable solutions is crucial. At the end, a good polyurethane coating will display the following: · Zero water swelling rate and high retention of tensile strength, hardness and elasticity under prolonged exposure to harsh climatic conditions (UV, wetness, heat, ozone etc.) · Constant adhesion to the substrate when periodically exposed to harsh climatic conditions. · Superior performance in an environment which combines all possible climatic conditions. ALCHIMICA revolutionized the waterproofing technologies globally, being the game changer in global waterproofing technologies.
