AllShield coatings are suitable for various infrastructure applications because they’re long-lasting and have a high bond strength with concrete. For example, they are used for quick repairs when concrete constructions are outdated; as a protective and life-extending coating for structures; and as a fire-resistant layer in tunnels.
In industrial construction, flat roofs mainly have a covering of Bitumen and/or PVC, both of which are highly flammable. AllShield has designed a coating for these existing roofs that makes them extremely fire-resistant and also extends their lifespan. This is all very important when installing solar panels. What is more, the white colour of the coating gives a strong reflection and therefore a higher yield for PV panels.
There are approximately two million homes in the Netherlands (source: CBS), older terraced houses, which have poor or no insulation at all and where the residents therefore pay the highest price for energy; a major social problem.
In collaboration with INpakt B.V. AllShield has designed a ‘brick panel’ (with AllShield Blue as a base) which is screwed onto the outside of these homes with an insulation package, resulting in a very favourable energy label. As it looks just like bricks the existing appearance of the houses is completely maintained.
