The Korean company developed the technology of producing eco-friendly indoor construction material using the standardization of properties of natural porous materials. This construction helps to control various indoor environmental problems such as humidity, harmful substances, and odour. The company is looking for partners under technical or research cooperation agreement.
According to the World Health Organization and the U.S. Environmental Agency, the indoor air pollution is more harmful to humans than the outdoor air pollution. Also, billions of people are exposed to indoor air pollution every year and millions of people have died because of it. Such indoor air quality problems cause serious harm to children and the elderly, who have relatively weaker immune systems, and high social costs are being spent. The harmful indoor air pollutants are formed not only from the building materials, but also from furniture, pets, carpets, and electronic devices. To solve such issues, the Korean company developed the technology of producing eco-friendly indoor construction material using the standardization of properties of natural porous materials. This product has high eco-friendly functionality such as control of humidity and reduction of air pollutants and odor. Moreover, due to its high moldability, this material can be used in either block form with numerous patterns and designs or paint form for wall coating. The company is now in the process of developing various convergence applications funded by government as follows, - Advanced coating product - Convergence with IoT and LED - Applying new natural materials for improving the functionality Because this Korean company can make natural building materials to be more functional and safer with its patent technology, they are looking for partners; - under technical or research cooperation agreement to develop new materials or application and implement the Korean company’s technology into partner’s regional natural building materials and commercialize it.
Advantages and innovations
The unique porous structure of the indoor construction materials provides the following advantages; - Moderates indoor humidity which is effective to control of condensation, fungus and bacterial reproduction, and asthma - Increases indoor air quality by reducing harmful substances such as benzene, toluene, formaldehyde, etc., so the immunity of residents also increases - Helps to decrease the indoor odours of ammonia, cigarette, garbage, food, etc. - Helps to ward off pests such as mosquitos, with the choice of adding repellent substances within and/or sprayed on the product The construction material products are: - Highly aesthetic in design - Changeable in patterns, designs and sizes due to high moldability - Available in various colours using natural pigments - Applied with natural fiber dispersion technology, so that the fragments don’t scatter when the products are damaged - Successful in passing antimicrobial, anti-bacterial, and radioactive tests (e.g. radon) - In the highest level of non-combustible material (CE:A1 grade) - Easy to install by the users (DIY product) - Awarded as excellent and innovative building material by Korean government and Korean Institute of Architects
