Architecture Expo 2016: RESITRIX&KEMPEROL Awards
RESITRIX® & KEMPEROL® Take the Architects Choice Awards at the Architecture Expo 2016
Laydex Building Solutions were delighted to have been exhibiting again this year at the Architecture Expo, in RDS Dublin. Due to the hugely positive response received last year where Tarkett ID Inspiration Loose-Lay won The Architects’ Choice Award, Laydex doubled their space and showcased the revolutionary hybrid waterproofing membrane, RESITRIX®, alongside Kemper’s liquid waterproofing system, together with an innovative new creation by Tarkett under their flagship “Floor is the new Playground” mantra.
At the end of the second day Laydex were thrilled to have won Architects Choice Awards for both our roofing products at the exhibition, in the category of “Best Renewable Product”.
RESITRIX® is comprised of a totally unique patented material composition and guarantees a life-long seal whilst allowing very fast, simple, and secure installation. The product requires absolutely no naked flame on-site and has also been independently tested for a life expectancy in excess of 50 years by the world renowned SKZ Institute in Germany. The strength of the product lies in its versatility which all the visitors who saw one of the RESITRIX® live demonstrations over the two days at the show got a close up view of.
KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR, manufactured by KEMPER SYSTEM UK also took an award as the first solvent-free, odourless, wet-on-wet, fleece reinforced liquid roofing and waterproofing system available in the Republic of Ireland.
It is ideal for use on sustainability based projects or on sensitive occupied buildings where the strong odours and fumes from solvent-based products would be disruptive. KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR is a 2-component polyurethane-based product that forms a permanently elastic, seamless, yet highly vapour permeable membrane that is both durable and tear-resistant.
Roughly 80% of the applied polyols (resins) in KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR are obtained from the seeds of the tropical castor plant – a renewable resource.
KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR can be used on a wide range of applications, offering the strength and versatility of our solvent-based V210 and 1K-PUR products, but with the advantage of a more environmentally-friendly composition. It is particularly suitable for use on occupied buildings that would be sensitive to a solvent-based application, such as schools, hospitals or food factories, allowing work to take place without the need for evacuation or closure.
RESITRIX® waterproofing membranes and Kemper System’s world renowned Kemperol® liquid roofing and waterproofing systems, are exclusively distributed in Ireland by Laydex Building Solutions.
