Published on 2015-04-14. Author : SpecialChem

Bluestar Silicones will showcase its innovative and environmentally-friendly range of silicone products for building protection and construction at the European Coating Show from April 21st to 23rd in Nuremberg, booth 1-146.

Sealants for construction
In addition to its Bluesil™ range of products for building protection, Bluestar Silicones will present its range of sealants solutions for construction.

The first silicone sealant was created in 1957 on the Bluestar Silicones’ site in Saint-Fons (France). By improving strength, flexibility and resistance, silicones sealants protect the structural integrity of a building so it can stand the test of time. Bluestar Silicones provides formulated sealants as well as raw materials for formulation, primers and auxiliaries.
Bluestar Silicones sealants are based on acetoxy and alcoxy technologies for construction joints, glazing, sanitary.

Bluestar Silicones offers a complete range of silicone products for the most demanding building protection systems. The Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ products provide high water-vapor permeability, extremely low water absorption and outstanding durability in coating applications.

These unique properties of Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ products make them the perfect solution for building protection:

1. Decorative paints
Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ grades are solvent free siloxane emulsions. Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ silicone co binders and additives are used to enhance the water repellency and breathability of many types of paints and renders either for new constructions or renovations.

These water based efficient ingredients bring hydrophobicity and allow walls to breathe with long lasting protection, durable aesthetic effect, good washability and enhanced thermal insulation. They prevent paints to swell or scale, and enable walls to keep their initial aesthetic aspect.

2. Masonry protection
Over the years, buildings suffer physical and chemical damages caused by water penetrating into building materials. Impregnating diluted Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ silicone solutions into the materials creates a water-proof barrier while maintaining the surface's breathability and porosity. This is even done with no modification of the initial aspect of the material.
Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ solutions develop high water repellency performances with outstanding resistance to weathering and high protection against efflorescence, algae, fungi…

3. Construction materials
Most of the construction materials are sensitive to water and consequently can be damaged when exposed to humidity. Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ water repellents are used to protect several type of materials used in construction industry against moisture.
Mostly based on solvent free products, they bring improved insulation properties, increased global comfort in houses & buildings and energy cost savings.

4. Heat resistant coatings
Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ silicone resins confer outstanding properties to protective and decorative coatings, especially those which are continuously exposed to high temperatures and to extreme variations in temperature.

Eco-friendly solutions
Bluestar Silicones is committed to continued innovation of water-based products to replace the use of solvent-based products to reduce emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Their very high vapour permeability allows the material to breathe and let water vapour escape to the outside. These unique properties of Bluestar Silicones Bluesil™ products will allow significant cost and energy savings.
