“There is too much energy ‘conversation’ when there should be more energy ‘conservation’!”
The rate of resource depletion is at an all-time high. Buildings are being held accountable for an average of 41% of the world’s energy use. A huge percentage of the green-house gas emissions from these buildings is directly impacting climatic change. The usage of non-sustainable products for construction of buildings is generating harmful wastes such as concrete, metals, plastic, asphalt and more. These untreated wastes are damaging the environment adversely.
With the increasing rate of energy consumption in today’s power-hungry smart age, we are in the race to eliminate, or at least reduce, our carbon footprint. How can we, then, combat these concerns and still remain forefront in the field of science and progress?
At 3M, we endeavour to highlight concerns pertaining to energy conservation and provide the appropriate solutions to guarantee leaving behind a greener environment in our wake. Our modern building solutions help create smart structures that are environmentally sustainable and energy-efficient.
Some of the products we provide include:
3M™ Daylight Redirecting Film is a window film made using 3M micro-replication technology. This film improves natural lighting, eliminates the need for artificial lights, and blocks up to 99% of UV radiation, providing better protection for the residents of buildings.
3M™ Tubular Daylight Guidance System is a 3M state-of-the-art technology that uses patented 3M film that reflects 99.7% of all visible light. While doing so, it maintains the natural colour of the light. This facilitates healthier interiors, lower power cost and green credits.
3M Fire Protection Products address fire containment and are an integral part of a well-designed fire protection system which includes fire detection and fire suppression in addition to fire containment. 3M Fire Protection systems are designed to help build efficient and safer buildings that protects lives and property.
3M™ Fire Barrier Sealants are high performance, ready to use, gun-grade, latex-based, sealants that help control the spread of fire, smoke and noxious gases before, during, and after exposure to a fire. Such sealants are approved for listed firestop systems for up to 4 hours.
These firestop devices are designed to make firestopping through concrete easy and affordable. 3M Cast-in-devices are installed prior to the concrete pour and can be adjusted to various concrete depths.
It is an effective one-piece solution for firestopping of penetrating items through rated walls and floors. These are re-enterable and caulk free and provides easy installation as per codes. Pass through devices are perfect for firestopping structures where electrical, data and communication cables pass through fire rated walls and floors.
70 years back, 3M innovated first retro reflective sheeting enabling darker roads talk to road users. Over the years 3M have constantly improved this technology and continued to develop brighter and more durable products making roads safer during night globally.
3M works very closely with the authorities worldwide to provide state of the art Road Safety improvement programs which not only help in improving efficiency for the roads but also give a fresh aesthetic look to the city making them world class.
3M has global presence having provided end to end solutions to the cities of Atlanta, Tokyo, Sydney and Beijing internationally. 3M also has a compelling local presence, having been involved in the signage revamp of cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Pune to name a few.
