Research and Product Development

Attis is actively engaged in R & D activities in the following areas:

* Development of concrete products

* Concrete release agents

* Corrosion penetration / protection for ferrous materials

* Paints

* Water proofing agents for canvas materials.

 

All products that have been developed through our in house research and Development programs are environmentally friendly.

Release agents

Attis developed release agents give a better and more constant quality concrete than the traditional mineral based release agents.

Working with our release agents, increases the efficiency of your production cycle enormously. Our release agents are applied very efficient and precise, resulting in less product that is used and reduces waste spillage. Less waste spillage in its turn results in less slips, trips and falls on the work floor, creating a safer working environment.

All our release agents are environmental friendly, causing no skin irritation and eliminates the need for chemical specific handling, storage and work gear.

Go Green with Concrete!

As environmental laws increase and more projects call for green technology, people within the construction industry are searching for new solutions. Fortunately, you don't have to search too hard to find a reputable material that meets the demands of most green buildings.

Asphrete provides an eco friendly alternative to building insulation. Asphrete is suitable for professional trades persons and jobs around the house for a broad range of applications these include:

* Renders

* Decorative panels for buildings

* Noise Insulation (Floors ceilings and walls)

* And many other applications

 

Characteristics

Asphrete characteristics:

* Density : 300 to 750 kg/m 3

* Heat conductivity : l = 0.08 to 0,12 W/m.K

* Water vapour permeability: µ < 14

* High flexibility

* Compressive strength : 0.8 to 17 MPa

* Acoustic qualities

* Antifungal qualities

* Flame resistance - final results pending

 

Class 1 finishing. Asphrete forms a structure that is:

* Fire-resistant

* Rodent-proof

* Termite/white ant proof (termites are a huge problem in Western Australia).

 

Asphrete is not used as a structural material as such but when used on factory’s and houses with timber or metal frames is creates a lot of strength and support within the structure. R values when applied on a finished house walls and ceilings are triple that of the newly set Australian standards. In fact, Asphrete provides such brilliant insulation that air-conditioners could be made redundant and the savings you will see on your ever growing power bills will go down! Asphrete is an environmentally sustainable product.

 

Carbon dioxide sequestration

The capacity of carbon dioxide sequestration of Asphrete concrete comes from two ways:

* Asphrete stores carbon during its growth and releases oxygen into the atmosphere.

* Lime uses CO2 for carbonation. The overall CO2 balance for Asphrete concrete is such that the captured carbon is retained within the structure building. CO2 sequestration for 1m² of a wall of Asphrete (26cm) with wooden frame.

 

Cost

Comparable unit cost depending on material availability Asphrete can be used in large or small application and is extremely easy to install. It can be poured in-situ or can be precast in to panels and lifted in to position. The ease of construction, thermo properties, reduction in other building materials (internal and external cladding) and life span (compared to other building materials) out way any additional cost above concrete price.
