The development of SOLUMIX is based on know-how and patents filed by Air Liquide, (the formulation and the associated process of creation, at the origin of its aerial microstructure in crossed needles).
This manufacturing process, which is similar to hydrothermal synthesis, a phenomenon observed during the natural crystallization of minerals, respects the natural origin of the SOLUMIX components.
A concentrate of exceptional qualities
SOLUMIX presents exceptional characteristics, united in single materials for a unique versatility:
- Natural, biosourced
- VOC Free
Material of natural neutral mineral origin made of a mixture of silica, calcium, magnesium and water.
SOLUMIX contains no gypsum or cement, and is recyclable.
It prevents the development of bacteria and mould due to the absence of carbon compounds.
It does not release any contaminating components (no VOCs) or dust, whether at the time when the materials are laid, or throughout the product life cycle.
SOLUMIX is non-flammable, and also presents excellent fire resistance up to over 1000°C. It does not release any smoke or toxic gas, and provides part of the answer to the coming into effect of the new Euroclasses fire safety standards.
The mechanical strength of SOLUMIX (3MPa for SOLUMIX IR15) enables it to withstand high loads when used as a binding material for assembly. Its compression strength and dimensional stability contribute to the overall strength of the wall…
It is also ideally suited to the hanging of furniture items from the walls.
