Conservation of the environment we live in is essential for sustainability. Governments of countries, industrialists, business owners, entrepreneurs, and people, in general, are concerned about the ecological damage being caused by unavoidable development activities. Studies show that carbon dioxide emissions are on the rise and it is important to use eco-friendly building materials to reduce the carbon footprint and global warming. Studies have also revealed that the contribution of the construction sector is about 20 percent of the overall carbon dioxide emissions. In a developing country like India, there is a huge demand for construction of residential and commercial buildings and this is only likely to further contribute to the greenhouse effect.
Eco-Friendly Building Materials
The Pune based Green Build Products specializes in the development and manufacture of eco-friendly building materials from waste products and environmental pollutants such as fly ash and other renewable material. They are superior to traditional products in terms of strength and sturdiness. The GWC Series products are Green Construction solutions that do not need cement, sand, and water. The Green Wall Protection Products are available as ready-to-use Wet Mix and Pre-polymerized pastes. They cure by drying. They help save the scarce resources water and river sand, bring down operational costs, and speed up the construction process.
On the other hand, the Jotex Series products are green wall protection products. Like GWC Series products, they are also made using recycled material. They do not need water at the time of applying them to the walls and curing happens when they are dry. Jotex Series products also come in ready-to-use wet mix form and as pre-polymerized pastes.

As one of the most effective acrylic coating solutions, HRC offers excellent heat reflection property. A uniform HRC coat covers minor cracks and provides protection against natural elements. The product enables the moisture present within the walls to come out through capillary action and evaporate. It is the change in temperature in the surrounding area and moisture content within the walls that cause chalking and flaking. HRC effectively controls both and prevents the growth of fungi, mould, and algae.
If you want to provide shine and lustre for your wall surfaces, then it is important to apply putty before painting.
