CALOSTAT and Protectosil to be present at the construction fair BAU 2013

BAU 2013, one of the world's leading trade fairs for the construction industry, will be staged from January 14 to 19 in Munich, Germany. BAU is an important information platform for everyone involved in the construction, design, and management of buildings. More than 200,000 visitors and 2,000 exhibitors from all over the world are expected.

The Protectosil® brand encompasses a wide range of products that protect mineral substrates against all types of environmental effects. Protectosil® is the successful brand name for water repellents, protection against graffiti and corrosion, and surface protection (easy-to-clean). The Protectosil® product range offers optimum, long-term solutions for almost every construction material, be it concrete, sandstone, granite, or plaster. At BAU 2013, staff in the Functional Silanes Business Line will be focusing on, among others, the newly launched Protectosil® WS 808, which, in addition to its water repellent properties, also reinforces mineral surfaces and was developed especially to protect bricks and gypsum.

CALOSTAT® is the newly developed high-performance insulation material based on AEROSIL®, whose mineral basis offers ideal conditions for its excellent product properties. Durability, outstanding insulation properties, and building material class A (non-flammable) are thus guaranteed. CALOSTAT® is especially suitable as a composite for interior insulation, cavity wall insulation, and external insulation in facade systems. With the help of CALOSTAT®, cozy warmth and low heating costs no longer have to be a contradiction.

We look forward to welcoming you at our Booth 415, in Hall A1 at BAU 2013.
