NMC products stand for quality and climate protection

Published: 6 July 2017
 

NMC, the leading international player in the development, production and marketing of synthetic foams, has developed a foam based on renewable raw materials. This innovation significantly improved the climate and energy performance of NMC products and helps towards protecting the climate and resources. As a family company, NMC stands for quality and climate protection. 


Plant-based raw materials make the difference
The new NMC Naturefoam is made mainly from polyethylene manufactured from sugarcane. Sugarcane grows back every year absorbing CO2 as it
grows and thereby saving finite resources such as oil. NMC Naturefoam is available for NMC quality brands CLIMAFLEX and EXZENTROFLEX.
Environmental product declaration (EPD) for Climaflex made of NMC Naturefoam shows impressive results The EPD for the Climaflex range made of NMC Naturefoam certified by the IBU (Institute for Construction & Environment) proves that the CO2 emission in the entire production process from cradle to the factory gate could be reduced to zero which is clearly better than initially estimated.
In the production of the previous Climaflex formulation these emissions amounted to 62.8kg CO2 per m3 of foam whereas in common rubber
insulation they can come between 200-220kg per m3 of foam.

Pipe Insulation made NMC Naturefoam offers double the contribution to climate protection Technical pipe insulation products carrying the proven NMC quality brands CLIMAFLEX and EXZENTROFLEX are improved by the use of at least 50% renewable materials. Recycled manufacturing scrap and additives to improve
insulation values and fire protection complete the composition. 

 


Top Class Product properties
CLIMAFLEX and EXZENTROFLEX from NMC Naturefoam have the same technical properties as the previous CLIMAFLEX in terms of:
• Insulation values
• Fire performance
• Simple installation by craftsman
• Longevity
Climate protection as a major driver in renovation and construction
Politicians and consumers are demanding more sustainability in all areas
of life, including in the construction industry. Consistent environmentally
conscious construction and restoration thus means
• Using materials which generate fewer greenhouse gases,
• Contain a high percentage of renewable raw materials
• Manufactured by means of environmentally sensitive production processes.
