Building and infrastructure in the U.S. constitutes approximately 40% of the total yearly energy expenditure of the nation, and accounts for 12% of total water consumption and 68% of total electricity consumption. In Canada it is estimated that buildings alone consume over 40% of the raw materials and energy produced by the country. Meanwhile, high-performance building requirements continue to grow more stringent and complex to help address these issues. Consider just some of the programs and legislation in effect:
This ultimately leaves architects, consultants, builders, specifiers, engineers and construction managers with the monumental task of reducing the environmental footprint of all buildings and helping to create sustainable architecture. Tremco is helping the design team respond to this challenge by creating new high-perfrfomance material technology and chemistry. This provides you with products and systems that set new standards for performance, speed, sustainability, resilience and flexibility in design.
Weather Resistance, Controlling Air & Moisture Infilitration and Thermal Perfomance
It is estimated that as much as 90% of all water intrusion problems occur within the 1% of the total building exterior surface that contains the terminations and transition detailing leading to structural deterioration, increased energy consumption and mold and mildew. The value from our product systems comes from the potential to offer your clients even greater return on their investment by addressing these critical connections (window-to-wall tie-ins, roof-to-wall tie-ins, foundation-to-wall tie-ins, penetrations and corners) to help ensure:
Tested, Proven Performance
Not only has Tremco has committed significant resources to develop superior technology and integrated systems that provide true solutions to the most troublesome gaps in building protection. we help further mitigate risk by ensuring that our detailing and connectivity solutions have been put to the test in our state of the art facility. We take the guesswork out by testing for performance beyond ASTM standards during simulations of high winds, wind-driven rain, seismic and/or dynamic movement.
