INNOVATION by DRT
Eco-homes of tomorrow
With a construction market that is increasingly turning towards sustainable, responsible materials, we strive to develop sustainable technical solutions for concrete, insulation, waterproofing and paints to reduce the environmental impact of construction and manage their energy consumption.
Our bio-sourced ingredients offer a real green alternative to better meet the requirements of new and future regulations on the reduction of CO2 emissions in the manufacture of concrete and cement.
In addition to carbon footprint reduction, we develop ingredients that make concrete more robust, easier to work with, and more resistant to freeze-thaw.
We also work to improve the milling of concrete for the manufacturing of cement, to optimize their plasticity, and even to improve their ability to retain and hold together mortar.
Thanks to our resins designed for use in specialty adhesives, we propose to develop greener primary construction materials (coatings, sealants, etc.) with optimal adhesion and durability.
The benefits of our resins? Facilitating the use of pressure-sensitive adhesives (instead of conventional fastening techniques), improving insulation while reducing the use of primary fossil fuels and thus the carbon footprint of materials. They also facilitate the recycling of materials during demolition.
Our bio-sourced resins have significant benefits for low-energy buildings, particularly the roofs, which are crucial for efficient thermal performance.
Our solutions make it possible to create cold tackifying membranes for solid improvements in energy performance and in building durability, increasing weather resistance through waterproofing system for instance. They are also used for vapor barrier tapes formulations that are key elements to improve energy efficiency, durability, and indoor air quality.
Thanks to our renewable resins, it is even possible to easily upgrade a roof with photovoltaic panels allowing for green power generation on site.
Our tall oil rosin derivatives and fatty acids are well-suited to develop sustainable paints and coatings with the best performances.
Improved resistance, easy to apply and 100% renewable, these various components help create sustainable, highly-efficient technical innovations for all types of paints and coatings: decorative, anticorrosion, specific for woods…
Finally, our resins keep being useful up until the last details of the eco-home creation, by allowing for the bonding of muntin bars on windows, door panels, mirrors and many kinds of decorative elements.
As for the first steps of the construction of the home of tomorrow, our bio-sourced solutions make it possible to design the interiors with a sustainable approach while ensuring efficiency and easy application of the products with no boundary for decoration creativity.
