The product, whose raw materials can be produced in mass all over the state, is featured by high fire resistance, perfect adhesive strength and outstanding economic benefits. Therefore, the product is also contributive to greatly reduce production cost of steel work enterprise. With an overall performance surpassing that of the international first-class brands, the coating has broken the monopoly of international brands in the high-end market.
3 Waterborne non-intumescent fireproof coating for steel work. The product has outstanding fireproof performance and has outstanding advantages both in comprehensive strength and adhesive strength. Compared with other materials, hollows and cracks will not be found on the thick coating. With the performance surpassing advanced technology of the world, the product is better than any non-intumescent fireproof coating available in the market.
4 Prefabricated permeable concrete. The product is the mixture of high-performance and environmentally-friendly resin and well-chosen aggregate, with a surface having the natural aggregate texture. The product can also uniformly show the pure color texture by coating. It is durable, overall permeable and environmentally-friendly and has no abnormal smell, having great promotion values in construction of sponge city and park city.
5 Transparent hydrophobic self-cleaning coating. This hydrophobic and super-hydrophobic exterior wall latex coatings are industrially produced with commercial relatively low-cost raw materials and simple manufacturing methods. It is provided with good hydrophobic self-cleaning, weathering resistance, green, environment-friendly and convenient for construction, and can be used for the coating of exterior walls of super high-rise buildings, prefabricated components, and pavement coating, etc.
6 Refrigeration coating. The surface temperature of the coating is always lower than the air temperature, which can effectively reduce the indoor temperature, and thus reduce the energy consumption of the air conditioner. It takes water as solvent, is healthy and environment-friendly without secondary pollution, and is suitable for various coating construction processes. It can be used for cooling and insulating of new or existing buildings, oil and gas storage tanks and pipelines with different substrates, as well as other projects with thermal insulation and cooling demands or infrared thermal stealth projects.
7 Photocatalyst air-purification coatings: the coatings can perform "photosynthesis" like green leaves. Unlike traditional adsorption paints, the coatings can decompose these substances via anatase nano-titanium dioxide under the action of light and then release water and carbon dioxide, after having absorbed harmful gases, such as formaldehyde, smoke, bacteria and viruses, which completely eliminates the secondary pollution of the adsorption coatings and achieve the purpose of long-term air purification.
8 Waterborne energy-saving & thermal-insulation coatings for buildings: this product has good energy-saving and thermal-insulation properties, save energy consumption of the air conditioner by about 30.9o /m²/year per unit area, and can effectively improve the living comfort in the buildings. In summer, the indoor temperature with the coatings may be about 2.5 ℃ lower than that without the coatings.
9 Wall renovation coating. The product is jointly developed by CSWADI and Dow Chemical for the renovation of existing buildings. It can be used directly for the renovation of ceramic tiles, coatings and other facing layers. Before using the product, the existing wall decoration is not required to be demolished, which effectively avoids fugitive dust and white garbage pollution. The product has dominant advantages in high construction efficiency, elastic crack resistance, long-lasting weather resistance, and self-cleaning.
Part III: Energy-saving Equipment
1 Heat-collection, thermal-insulation, and sound-insulation window. The product is a new type of energy-saving equipment developed independently by the PhD team of CSWADI. It can help regulate the quantity of heat in and out of the room flexibly, so as to realize the temperature regulation of the buildings. The overall performance of heat collection and thermal insulation is improved by 30%, the cost is 40% lower than the German passive window, and the noise can be effectively insulated.
Winter: open the inner window in the daytime to adequately raise the temperature of the enclosure; close the inner window in the evening to fully preserve the heat in the room; Transition season: open the inner and outer windows to reduce heat resistance and ensure natural ventilation, so as to cool down the building. Summer: block the sun's heat using the interlayer.
2 Underfloor Air Distribution Device for Large Space Buildings. The device adopts an air distribution method of integrating ceiling air distribution with lateral air distribution. The air flow of lateral air distribution generates a "lake of cold air" near the ground, while that of ceiling air distribution generates a "curtain of cold air", thus effectively raising the air transmission efficiency and improving air distribution effect. It has been proved by the test results that the air conditioning terminal device can save energy up to 25-27%.
3 Off-design intelligent air-conditioning unit. In view of the drastic fluctuation of outdoor air quality, the traditional air conditioning equipment is difficult to satisfy the operation under varying working conditions, which may result in poor guarantee of indoor air quality or high energy consumption. The new-type equipment developed independently by CSWADI can not only ensure the indoor air cleanliness, but also significantly reduce the energy consumption of air conditioning system.
