Hydrotech has developed products, systems and alliances that reflect their commitment to environmental sustainability. Along with producing one of the industry's best performing membranes, Hydrotech has also introduced some of the industry's most sustainable waterproofing assemblies. For instance, Hydrotech's MM6125®EV (environmental grade formulation) is a hot-applied rubberized asphalt that can be formulated with up to 25% post consumer recycled content. Monolithic Membrane 6125, the foundation for all their assemblies, helps generate LEED® points on projects around the country each and every day. Hydrotech assemblies feature recycled content in the membrane and reduced lifecycle cots due to project longevity (which also reduces its impact on landfills). In addition, the Ultimate Assembly® delivers energy savings through reflective pavers, while their Garden Roof® Assembly delivers storm water management capabilities.
The ISO Clip provides a thermally broken and intermittent structural attachment for cladding systems to exterior wall assemblies. The clip is fabricated from Z-275 galvanized steel, and over-molded with a plastic isolator. Both horizontal and vertical steel girts can be attached to the ISO Clip, as shown below in Figures 1 & 2. The horizontal flange of the clip has a punched slot that allows the sub-girt to be adjusted and fastened to the clip. The plastic isolator between the metal clip and the wall provides a thermal break that reduces thermal bridging. For steel stud assemblies, the clips are fastened through the exterior sheathing directly to the steel studs using self-drilling screws.
Stego Industries, LLC is involved in the research, design, development, production and marketing of proactive moisture solutions for use in various construction-related applications. EPA mandated water-based adhesive products, new energy codes, and the growing liability for mold and contaminants have forced the building industry to re-evaluate, and switch to cost-effective, solution-oriented products which will help control moisture, moisture vapor, radon gas and other contaminants. Both Stego Wrap and Aridus rapid drying concrete help eliminate major moisture sources that can lead to flooring failures, poor indoor air quality, and delayed construction schedules.
