Eco-Friendly Materials used in Construction
Nowadays, in the context of an increasingly polluted environment and resource depletion, the use of Eco-Friendly Materials in construction is gaining popularity and becoming an inevitable trend.
There are also questions such as “Are Eco-Friendly Materials as good as traditional materials, how much do they cost, and how easy is it to buy?” Let’s find out and discuss 4 Eco-Friendly Materials in construction with KANE!
1. Recycled Ceramic Tiles
Traditionally, wall cladding materials are often made from baked bricks, metals, glass, … and the production of these materials releases a lot of substances that harm the environment. Therefore, Recycled Ceramic Tiles were born and overcome the limitations of the traditional type.
Recycled Ceramic Tiles are made from broken bricks, which are leftover during the production process. Because they are made from old bricks, the colors are not diversified, but it is environmentally friendly and economically efficient.
In addition, there are also many other types of tiles made from loofah, plastic waste, wood fiber, 3D wall cladding that are environmentally and welcomed by everyone for their superiority and high aesthetics.
It’s a bit of a pity because currently recycled ceramic tiles have not been mass-produced and widely used. Hopefully this material will grow in popularity even more.
2. Low-E Insulating Glass
Low-E Insulating Glass is designed with 2 layers of glass and has air space in the middle, coated on the surface of a special compound that helps the glass to emit heat slowly, reducing heat dissipation and absorb heat more slowly.
Besides, Low-E glass also has a function to reflect sunlight, helping the space inside to keep the temperature stable and still ensure the brightness in the room. Thereby saving energy and minimizing costs for electrical equipment.
Low-E glass is slightly more expensive than conventional tempered glass, but comes with these great features and is a worthy investment. In addition, there are many business units that provide this type of glass on the market. You can freely choose without having to worry.
3. Green cement
Geopolymer, an eco-friendly building material developed at the Trenchless Technology Center in the US, is made from “fly ash” – one of the most redundant industrial byproducts, thereby contributing to more environmental protection.
Compared with conventional cement, Green Cement has many more outstanding features such as:
- Higher friction resistance
- Better fire resistance and fire resistance (up to 2400 oF)
- Better insulation
- Resistant to moisture, thus resisting corrosion
- Low shrinkage
4. Adobe Roof Tile
This tile is manufactured from cement, silicate, pigments, and waterproof additives. It is then molded to shape and allowed to dry and is especially unburnt.
The most modern technology today is colored tile with “wet technology”. This technology directly injects the mix of pigments and cement onto the wet tile surface after the tile has been formatted. This will make the color of the tile more durable.
So KANE has reviewed 4 popular eco-friendly materials in construction today. The application of green materials to protect the environment is a very meaningful and practical job. Let’s join hands for a clean and green world.
