The "low-E" coating has passed all relevant tests from acetic acid to Florida tests and can therefore be used without restrictions for outdoor use in buildings. < / p>
The effect is provided by platelet-shaped metallic pigments, which are arranged in parallel near the surface when the powder coating melts. The pigments reduce the radiation of heat through the aluminum construction and thus reduce the heat loss from the building envelope.
"Low-E" proves to be extremely stable chemically and mechanically. The innovative surface technology, developed over several years of research, can even be applied beyond the construction industry (read more by clicking on the press release on the right). & Nbsp;
Easier to build with WICONA Unisys
The WICONA stand in Munich was built according to the WICONA Unisys concept. Arnd Brinkmann, Managing Director of Hydro Building Systems GmbH from Ulm: "Our specialist metal companies benefit noticeably from this concept. They have high process reliability thanks to the same parts, the same processing, the same tools." This saves WICONA Unisys time and costs. At the same time, goods are more reliably available.
The WICONA stand also shows facades in the current glass trend. & nbsp; Premiere has a thermally better insulated automatic sliding door, created & nbsp; in collaboration with the Swiss Kaba-Gilgen AG. & nbsp;
TECHNAL on board for the first time
For the first time, Hydro is also presenting its sister brand TECHNAL at the WICONA stand. In France, TECHNAL has long been one of the best-known building system brands - and debuted at BAU in Munich with solutions for intermediate walls and railings."Experts estimate that around 80% of the railings installed in Germany would fail in static tests. Our system, on the other hand, guarantees the necessary quality and safety," says Bernd Hochstädter, who organizes the sale of TECHNAL products in Germany.
Hochstädter: "The Technal program complements the WICONA product range in Germany and thus offers opportunities for metal fabricators. They can expand their activities with interesting products from a strong brand."
