  • ALCHIMICA BIG 5 DUBAI 2021
    Finally, the BIG 5 is back. After this long period without physical format due to COVID restrictions, ALCHIMICA proudly returns to meet you all at BIG 5 DUBAI 2021 with great excitement.  The BIG 5 is the largest and most influential construction exhibition in Middle East and Africa where more than 2200 exhibitors from over 66 countries participate. Like the previous times, ALCHIMICA always grasps the opportunity to showcase an array of solutions for the construction industry especially for those who are looking for cutting-edge technologies, that span from waterproofing systems to cementitious mortars and ETICS.  In this year’s BIG 5, we have planned to present our wide range of products along with new launches of liquid polyurethane waterproofing products, advanced cementitious mortars and our advanced ETICS solutions. ALCHIMICA™ is a partner that delivers value and durable, innovative solutions for successful projects. We look forward to meeting you in person in our booth 7A327, Hall 7.

  • Cool Roof - HYPERDESMO
    The phenomenon of urban heat islands is found in cities and describes the temperature difference between urban and rural areas which sometimes reaches up to 4°C. Studies cite that earth’s average temperature will increase between 2 and 4 degrees Celsius within this century. One of the main reasons that contribute to this phenomenon, is the concrete infrastructure and high density-materials found in urban environments and which absorb higher amounts of heat compared to rural areas.  A key factor is the low solar reflectance of urban environments which leads to the absorption of thermal energy and is released later as heat in the environment. In addition, the use of vehicles, air-condition units and other leads to a further increase in the thermal energy exerted and thus leading to temperature increases. In fact, the use of air-conditioning units is one of the drivers of the worldwide growing energy demand and increases energy consumption at a massive scale in the residential and commercial sectors. Cool roofs Roofs are one of the most exposed structures in buildings absorbing a lot of heat. In this respect, cool roofs are considered one of the most sustainable and cost-effective solutions to reduce heat island effect in cities and create at the same time the right thermal comfort in buildings.    Cool roofs is the term used for roofs that reflect over 65% of the sun’s rays compared to conventional roofs which repel less than 15%. Cool roofs are able to repel heat because the materials used to coat them, offer high solar reflectance. Studies have shown that the average energy-saving effect of cool roofs ranges from 15% to 35.7% in different climatic zones and the average roof surface temperature reduction is possible from 1.4 ˚C to up to 4.7 ˚C. The creation of a cool roof improves the energy efficiency of buildings and supports the development in urban sustainability for cooler and healthier environments with better air quality, mitigating the urban heat island phenomenon.   How is the efficiency of cool roofs measured: SOLAR REFLECTANCE (SR) The ability of the roofing material to reflect solar radiation. Thermal Emittance It shows how long a roof holds onto the energy when the sun heat the roofing material. The thermal emittance ranges from 0-1.   SOLAR REFLECTIVE INDEX (SRI) The SRI is calculated based on solar reflectance and thermal emittance in conjunction with ambient air temperature, sky temperature and wind factors. The solar reflective index is reported as a value from 0 to 130 ranging from least reflective at 0 to most reflective at 130. ALCHIMICA’s advanced roof waterproofing system with reflective materials based on the HYPERDESMO® System offers a SRI value of 102 tested according to ASTM E1980-01 and offers all the benefits of cool roofs. Thanks to its high solar reflectance the HYPERDESMO® System contributes to the reduction of air conditioning usage which can lessen energy costs up to 15%. Reduction of the urban heat island effect in cities and suburbs, minimizing thermal impact on the microclimate and local environment. High thermal emissivity to release the absorbed heat. Minimizes heat gains inside buildings, improving occupant comfort. Enhances the durability and the appearance of roofs by significantly lowering material temperatures and extending their life cycle.

  • 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.
