Energy-efficient from floor to ceiling


Whether for a construction or renovation, superior insulation is essential to maximize a building’s energy-efficient properties. Choosing the most cutting-edge insulation technologies will enhance the efficiency of the entire building envelope, limit environmental footprint and reduce heating and cooling costs.

Heating and cooling buildings represents a third of global energy consumption. For this reason, enhancing building insulation is crucial to combat climate change. Airium is a fully recyclable, long-lasting mineral foam that enables developers to build and insulate at the same time.

Green insulation for greater comfort, energy savings and air quality


Our revolutionary Airium insulating system increases a building’s energy efficiency and can even be applied in green retrofitting applications to expand a building’s lifespan. Airium is mineral-based. As such, it is a fully recyclable foam that does not release any volatile organic compounds, thus enhancing indoor air quality.

Airium offers excellent durability, fire resistance and a low CO2 footprint. Applied as a semi-liquid foam, Airium can fit into any shape or corner. It then hardens to create a powerful, light, long-lasting and fully recyclable insulating solution.

One of our newest brands, SES Foam, is the largest independent spray foam insulation company in the US. SES develops advanced products such as its SucraSeal sucrose-based spray foam insulation, designed to improve buildings’ energy efficiency and thermal comfort while lowering their carbon footprint.

PRB Group, France’s largest independent manufacturer of specialty building solutions, completes our insulation portfolio, offering coatings, insulation, adhesives and flooring systems.
