Insulation is often overlooked in the construction industry in emerging markets, where the cost of materials is among the very first decision-making criteria.
Combined with relatively affordable energy prices, this results in buildings wasting most of their energy used for air-conditioning. Tenants end up paying a high price, with very few options to reduce their bill.
South-East Asia-based importer Trading Green specializes in distributing high-performance materials that save costs. In collaboration with UK-based manufacturer of aluminum composite foils Apollo Insulation, the company developed and launched Eco-Foil, a low-cost yet high-performance insulating foil that targets the building refurbishing market in developing countries.
Eco-Foil is easy to install under roofs, in walls and will reflect 96% of radiating heat for more than 30 years, while providing a waterproof membrane against humidity at the same time. It comes with a 10 years manufacturer guarantee and offsets more than 12kg of CO2 per year per square meter.
Eco-Foil has already been benchmarked during market testing against locally produced aluminum foils. Tests have demonstrated that Eco-Foil insulated at least twice better and will last more than 3 times longer than competing products.
