Improving the performance and durability of energy saving windows

PROJECT FUNDED UNDER THE SME INSTRUMENT PROGRAM

Call: H2020-SMEInst-2018-2020-1

Type of action: SME-1 (Feasibility study)

Project number: 855513
Duration: 6 months (Feb-Jul 2019)

Funding received: 50.000 €

 

Extrusion is the most important manufacturing process in construction plastics but this technology has been limited to low performing thermoplastics (PE, PP, PVC, PET, PS, PC...). EXTRU-PUR is a disruptive technology able to introduce, for first time, extruded products made from Thermoset Polyurethane (PUR) - the most insulating polymer material - enabling a continuous manufacturing of FRAMES & PROFILES FOR HIGHLY ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS as high added-value products.

 

Take a look to our first developed PUR window certified through Official CE marking tests.  Additional info coming soon...

 

Improving the insulation of buildings with safe PUR materials

PROJECT GRANTED WITH A SEAL OF EXCELLENCE UNDER THE SME INSTRUMENT PROGRAM (TO BE OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED)

PUR foams are materials that show the best performance in thermal & acoustic insulation in buildings & houses. In contrast to all other insulating materials that must be applied as sheets or panels, PUR foams can be sprayed and injected providing a unique tightness that prevents heat leaking while creating a continuous non-permeable barrier to liquids and gases. However, conventional PUR foams show a highly dangerours fire behaviour and this lack of safety is one of the main barriers for PUR to become the leading insulating material. SAFE-PUR are novel foams that overcome the main problems related with PUR during a fire.

 

Do you want to know more? We are still in development phase but first results are really promising... In the meantime, be informed why PUR spray-foaming is the best insulating application at this video:
