ACC has a long tradition of creating cutting-edge innovations in terms of ‘products & solutions’ that benefit home builders and the community of architects, engineers and developers. The latest in the line is ACC Airium, a mineral foam based insulating technology, as a unique concrete system which becomes a long-lasting roofing solution that insulates the surface at the time of construction itself. ACC Airium is available in low densities starting from 300 kg/m3 and above. The product with its superior thermal insulation properties provides an ideal solution for homes, offices and buildings across India. Furthermore, it is also completely sustainable and fire-resistant. With ACC Airium on top, its insulation technology reduces the inside temperature by up to 5 degrees in peak summer and warmer up to 5 degrees in peak winters.
Mr. Sridhar Balakrishnan, MD & CEO, ACC Limited said, “At ACC, we recognise our responsibility to contribute to a greener tomorrow. With the launch of Airium, we once again demonstrate our ability to rethink construction practices in order to continue delivering innovation. This product truly represents a new concept for insulation. Airium is an energy-efficient insulation for homes, offices and buildings. . It’s healthier, safer and simpler to work with, in line with ACC’s commitment to offering sustainable, high-performance construction solutions.
