Munich, February 10, 2015 – The Munich-based WACKER Group is presenting new binders and additives for the paint and surface-coating industries at the European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg, Germany, from April 21 to 23, 2015. One of the highlights is the new silicone resin emulsion SILRES® WH. The product which is based on a new silicone resin can be used as a hydrophobizing wood impregnating agent or as an additive in wood stains. Wood impregnated with SILRES® WH is protected against damp, moisture and the subsequent damage caused by fungi and insects for an exceedingly long time. WACKER is also showcasing a binder from its new PRIMIS® line for high-value outdoor applications. PRIMIS® AF 1000, the line’s first product, combines organic and inorganic components, enabling the formulation of bright, highly durable, exterior paints with reduced dirt pick-up.
At ECS 2015, WACKER will be premiering a silicone resin emulsion for wood protection coatings. Its superior impregnating effect enables longterm protection against damp, moisture and damage from moisture exposure. Marketed as SILRES® WH, the product is so flexible that it even bonds to wood surfaces and thus retains the hydrophobic, i.e. water repellent properties typical for silicones for many years. Long-term tests with impregnated wood show that the moisture and damp resistant properties of SILRES® WH are fully intact after 15 years. Silicone resin additives which have been successfully used on mineral substrates for decades can now provide wood with lasting outdoor protection.
The 50 percent emulsion is based on a functional silicone resin and is suitable as a wood impregnant or as an additive for formulating filmforming,pigmented wood stains. Due to its hydrophobic properties, SILRES® WH significantly reduces the water uptake of wood and, as a result, its moisture content. Weathering tests have shown that the silicone resin’s impregnating effect lasts for many years. Thus, wood is better protected against typical damage caused, for example, by fungi, mold and insects or by cracks due to shrinkage and swelling. It is possible to reduce the use of biocides in formulations significantly. In wood stains and coatings, even low amounts of SILRES® WH provide a longlasting hydrophobic effect.
SILRES® WH produces a visible beading effect on wood surfaces. By providing wood with long-term protection, the product greatly reduces the frequency of renovation and recoating compared with conventional wood preservatives. Best results are achieved when mixing the additive with water in a 1:4 to 1:9 ratio. In water-based stains, a concentration of up to three percent SILRES® WH is sufficient.

Less Dirt and More Color: PRIMIS® AF 1000
A further ECS 2015 highlight is the new PRIMIS® line, comprising binders and additives for advanced, high-value paints and architectural coatings. The new line combines organic and mineral components to deliver
a binder with a completely novel property profile. The elastic, acrylic ester- based, organic component performs a binder’s traditional role, offering strong adhesion and cohesion, good mechanical properties and enhanced processability. The solid mineral components, on the other hand, have outstanding protective properties and ensure long-lasting, bright colors and reduced dirt pick-up.
PRIMIS® AF 1000 offers improved scratch and abrasion resistance, optimized thermal conductivity and water-vapor permeability, and simpler and more even processing. Additionally, the dispersion is characterized by excellent film formation, even at low outdoor temperatures, and by its elasticity while its surface exhibits maximum blocking resistance. The mineral components also improve fire performance. The dispersion’s good pigment compatibility and color consistency keep exterior paints bright for longer – extending renovation cycles and, in turn, positively impacting overall costs. The new PRIMIS® AF 1000 dispersion is ideal for challenging exterior applications and expands WACKER’s extensive portfolio designed for plasters and exterior coatings. CCI Newswire

New program integrates sustainability and LEED higher education to shape future leaders of the green building industry

New Delhi, July 02, 2016:
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced today the launch of LEED Lab in India, a multi disciplinary immersion course that utilizes the built environment to educate and prepare students to become green building leaders and sustainability-focused citizens.

LEED Lab, which is already being offered at international universities in Latin America, the Middle East and Greater Asia, and has now been adopted by The Knowledge Institute of Technology (KIOT), a pioneer in the Indian education space, in Salem, Tamil Nadu. KIOT will begin its LEED Lab sessions this month.

“LEED Lab is a key educational tool to make students highly competitive in the 21st century green jobs market,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, COO, US Green Building Council, and president, Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). “KIOT, by educating a new generation of builders, is committed to creating a more sustainable India, where buildings perform at a higher level and human health is prioritized and enhanced. I want to thank the leadership of KIOT as we both nurture and train a workforce that will be essential to addressing India’s future building needs.”

The course is a laboratory for students to experiment on ways to LEED certify existing campus facilities through direct collaboration between students, faculty and a third party green organization. LEED Lab implements the LEED Operations and Maintenance rating system within existing campus buildings seeking LEED certification for the first time and LEED Certified buildings seeking recertification.

In the course, students learn the principles of LEED and assess the performance of an existing facility on campus, choosing one building to implement LEED. They then manage a complete build out, with the goal of certifying it by the close of the semester.

The campus environment serves as the perfect learning laboratory to engage students in projects that are experiential, providing these individuals with the knowledge, expertise and skills needed to solve 21st century challenges. This course is targeted largely at students studying civil engineering, mechanical engineering and architecture.

The field of sustainable architecture is evolving, and architects, designers and owners are each measuring sustainable benefits in terms of their impact on human health, environment and cost implications. Since it can take up to 80 years to make up for the environmental impacts of demolishing an old building and constructing a new one, LEED for Building Operation and Maintenance holds incredible promise for existing campus facilities. LEED promotes the ongoing implementation of best practices in building operations with the goal of sustaining high levels of performance throughout the life of a building.

The implementation of LEED reduces the environmental impact of buildings and grounds, has a positive effect on student, faculty and staff health, and prepares students to be global sustainability citizens.

LEED Lab, an initiative by US Green Building Council (USGBC), was launched in the U.S. in 2014 at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Since then, it has expanded worldwide, with 18 universities participating in the program, including Feng Chia University in Taiwan and Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP) in Peru, and an additional 100 international universities have expressed interest, including many in India. KIOT‘s adoption of LEED LAB, is the beginning of efforts to achieve market transformation of green buildings in India.To learn more visit LEED Lab.
