We’re improving air quality with sustainable and innovative roofing solutions
Sustainable construction is the future of our industry. Our material scientists are working hard to create real-world solutions that solve problems for customers, improve the environment, and exceed industry standards.
Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) has been identified as one of the most harmful greenhouse gases for the environment. It’s a major component of acid rain, which damages the atmosphere and causes respiratory issues. Standard Industries’ European roofing company Icopal created Noxite, a roofing membrane that defends against these harmful effects.
Noxite is more than 85% effective at stopping harmful greenhouse gases from being released into the air.
When ultraviolet radiation from the sun hits the roof, Noxite neutralizes NOx particles resting on the surface of the shingles and converts them into a harmless nitrate that washes away with rainwater. Noxite is more than 85% effective at stopping harmful greenhouse gases from being released into the air.
A breakthrough like Noxite is an innovation that is leading our industry forward. We are dedicated to being on the forefront of emerging technology and its real-world applications, including solar panels, waste reduction, and air quality.
Through our efforts, we are creating more affordable, more efficient products that go beyond industry standards and customer expectations.
