Partnering opportunity

A Greek SME producer of thermal insulation boards for wall seeks partners to establish commercial agency or distribution services agreement. in Cyprus, France, Romania and UK

Summary

A company, located in northern Greece, with more than thirty year of experience in the production of thermal insulation boards, has developed a unique product based on natural perlite that can be used for external insulation and sealing of walls and terraces. The product reduces heating costs in winter and cooling in summer while provides space saving, waterproofing, soundproofing and fireproofing. The SME seeks partners to establish manufacturing or distribution services or license agreement.

Description

The company is activated in production of structural, insulating and sealing materials since 1988. The growing need for energy saving prompted the company to develop a unique integrated system based on natural perlite that can be used for external insulation and sealing of walls and terraces. The patented monobloc product has been proved to reduce heating costs in winter and cooling in summer while providing space saving, waterproofing, soundproofing and fireproofing. Perlite, with the treatment it has undergone, encloses thousands of air cells. Thus, it can absorb the heat to which it is exposed, while contribute to providing sound insulation and breathability. The product comes with sealed decorative surface and is available in slabs (for terraces) in dimensions 40x40 and 40x60, 20x60 cm or in panel form in a wide variety of colors. Perlite slabs and perlite panels are placed on any surface using tile glue. Glued perlite panels could be covered with any kind of decorative surface. Joints of perlite slabs for terraces are covered with acrylic gum. The decorative surface is in the form of stone or marble or even a smooth surface. All the products are in compliance with the EU legislation for heating and cooling buildings. The company owns a production unit of 400m2 covered and a 2000m2 open-air storage area. The production capacity of the company is 300,00 m2 per day, in eight hours shift. It owns the rights to produce and trade the products under patent. The company, aware of the increased demand for its products, decided to develop its operations in 2018 by upgrading the existing perlite production unit, with bigger capacity than the existing and with state-of-the-art mechanical equipment while developing at the same time a special research department aiming to enable the certification of the produced products. The SME seeks partners to establish manufacturing or distribution services or license agreement.

Advantages and innovations

Conventional insulating materials provide thermal insulation by reflection. The perlite, with its processing, encloses thousands of air cells. Thus, it can absorb the heat to which it is exposed, due to the high thermal capacity of the product (thermal latency) without affecting the environment. The thousands of air cells contribute to sound insulation and breathability Conventional insulating materials have a specific life span (5-10 years), in the case of -which they come in contact with moisture, they gradually lose their ability of thermal insulation. Perlite products, have a life spam as long as concrete, providing also fire protection and waterproofing. It is a natural product, that comes from rock. The total cost of material and application is 10% cheaper and 66% lighter than micro cement. There is flexibility in dimensional production (thickness of thermal insulation), depending on the demands of the client and on the climatic conditions of the interested country.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
