Middletown, OH (PressExposure) December 18, 2009 -- More than 50,000 of America's leading-edge concrete professionals will be introduced to the newest green waterproofing solutions from Marflex when they convene in Las Vegas for Hanley Wood's World of Concrete 2010.
Three premium green drainage boards from Marflex will be on display, offering water flow rates from 30.41 gal./min./sq. ft. up to to 190 gal./hr./lin. ft.
"Today's high volume of moisture provides a breeding ground for mold and mildew," said Brett Oakley, Chief Executive Officer of Marflex. "Superior foundations require a fast-flowing drainage board like our ShockWave product to eliminate hydrostatic pressure and channel water away from the waterproofing membrane."
ShockWave Drainage Board is considered green because it's made from recycled automotive parts, as it Geo-Mat Plus dimpleboard, made from 100% post consumer recyclable products.
"We are proud to offer green building materials that are American made, sustainable, and supportive of builders, contractors and architects seeking LEED credits," said Dave Nichols, VP Marketing for Marflex. "LEED certified buildings offer healthier work and living environments, and contribute to improved air and water quality, comfort, and productivity."
Another popular green product is recently reformulated Drain & Dry drainage board made with ECOSE Technology. ECOSE technology converts bio-based materials into an inert polymer that bonds mineral wool strands together, eliminating the formaldehyde and phenols found in traditional binders.
Samples of Marflex Building Solutions green waterproofing solutions will be on display at World of Concrete in the Las Vegas Convention Center's Central Hall, Booth C-6793, along with technical personnel who can answer questions. Marflex will also display Air Barrier 1200 VP, a vapor permeable, UV-resistant, spray-on air barrier.
