Sustaining Our Environment
At Flowcrete Asia, we strive to ensure that all aspects of our
business operations are designed and implemented in ways that will
minimise any negative impact on the environment. This goal is
embedded in our research, development, manufacturing and operations
and installation processes to ensure that sustainability is at the
heart of everything we do.
In developing flooring solutions, we aim to ensure they
are not only innovative from a functional perspective but are
formulated with sustainability in mind. This includes the
responsible use of valuable resources throughout the manufacturing
process to minimise our carbon footprint.
Enhancing the Product Life
The durability of our high performance resin systems means
that flooring lasts longer and does not require replacement so
frequently. The resources required for uplift, removal and disposal
of the floor therefore and those used in the manufacturing and
installation of a replacement floor are saved.
As the regional manufacturing centre, at Flowcrete Asia we take
great care to minimise resource and energy use during our
By using reusable UN Certified intermediate bulk containers
(IBCs) for shipment of our systems, we are able to reduce our fuel
consumption for every litre of material sold. This practice also
greatly reduces the amount of packaging waste being generated and
non-reusable metal containers being consumed.
All of our waste streams are closely monitored to ensure the
most cost-effective and environmentally friendly route to disposal.
Wherever possible we reintroduce factory waste to our manufacturing
processes or look to eliminate waste at source.
In many instances, our flooring systems can remain in-situ
when floor replacement is carried out, avoiding the requirement for
Flowcrete has been using predominantly water-based and
solvent-free flooring technology for more than a decade. This has
significantly reduced the emission of harmful volatile organic
compounds (VOCs) to atmosphere during installation.
Wherever possible we seek to use raw materials from local
markets and warehousing and manufacturing units within a 500-mile
radius of our production sites.
A number of the components used in our flooring materials are
from recycled or reclaimed sources.
We undertake regular assessments of our sites to monitor the use
of the surrounding land, water and atmosphere. These audits assess
hazardous chemical substances, ventilation, environmental noise,
waste management, water and sanitation.
The in-built light reflective properties of a number of our
flooring systems reduce the need for artificial strip and
spotlighting, helping owners and operators to reduce energy
Our Under Floor Heating system helps deliver possible energy
savings of up to 30 percent when compared to traditional
heating/cooling systems such as radiators or air conditioning.
Our innovative Isocrete Acoustic K, a sub-floor soundproofing
system, reduces noise levels in multi-occupancy spaces and absorbs
sounds generated by foot traffic.
Flowcrete materials can also be used by specification
professionals and architects to qualify for LEED® credits.
