Sustainability sense with Kemper System at Ecobuild

// the building envelope

KEMPER SYSTEM’s proposition at Ecobuild is all about sustainability with KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR cold applied liquid waterproofing leading the way.
When we talk about roofing systems, their relative merits and sustainability, we need to understand what sustainability means...

The capacity to endure, with the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources and thereby supporting long term ecological balance. 
So how do we fit the bill?

The Resin
80% of the resins in KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR are derived from the seeds of the tropical castor plant, a sustainable resource.  The Department of Energy (DOE) reported that there are essentially zero net greenhouse gas emissions from the production of castor oil. 

The Application
Substrate conservation is a key element in sustainability.  When carrying out refurbishment work or upgrading the insulation on an existing roof, the KEMPEROL® resin is usually laid directly onto the substrate or utilises the failed membrane as a vapour control layer as part of the warm roof system build up.  This avoids the costly removal of the failed roof substrate and transport off site to become landfill. 

The Performance
KEMPEROL® 2K-PUR is not only solvent-free and odourless, it has proven performance in use with a BBA certified performance life in-excess-of 25 years.  It is also inherently root resistant making it ideal for green roof projects.
Responsibly sourced, environmentally friendly in application and long term performance; produced by a company that conforms to recognised environmental standards.  What more could you want from a roofing product?
