Buildings represent 40% of the world’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions, and demand is growing for longer-lasting residential and commercial buildings that consume less energy and enhance their users’ well-being.

We help develop energy-saving solutions such as triple-glazed windows with Soda Solvay® soda ash, wall coverings for near-zero-energy housing with Alve-One™ sustainable foaming solutions, and long-lasting products for cooling and heating systems. 

Furthermore, our Cyasorb Cynergy Solutions® UV stabilizers prolong the life of construction materials, while Sipomer® specialty monomers boost binder performances, with exceptional corrosion resistance and adhesion onto difficult substrates such as aluminum, glass, concrete, wood or plastic in waterborne systems.
