Paroc launches a complete range of sealing products - PAROC® Conci™

02 Apr 2012

Paroc is launching a complete range of sealing products - PAROC ConciParoc, one of Europe's leading manufacturers of stone wool insulation, is launching PAROC Conci – a complete range of sealing products to meet the new, stricter building regulations.
New building regulations and market demand for lower energy consumption have created a new market for specially adapted sealing products that optimise insulation. The concept will first be launched on the Swedish market, followed by many more countries, in an international drive.

Energy efficient buildings make high demands of airtightness.

"PAROC® Conci brings all our sealing products together under one name. Regardless of how a building is heated, it needs a well-insulated and tight envelope. Optimum internal air and vapour tightness in envelope is required in order to prevent heat and vapour from infiltrating the constructions. Traditional air and vapour barriers and sealing tape are often insufficient. Specially adapted products are necessary to achieve a completely tight seal," says Pär Gustavsson, product manager at Paroc Building Insulation.

The basis for construction of low-energy buildings is a tight building envelope, combined with controlled ventilation and well-balanced insulation. With PAROC Conci™, the products needed to create a tight building envelope can be easily sourced.

The products that we offer with PAROC® Conci™ provide the necessary elements for construction of a tight and effective building envelope, in a simple, sustainable and time effective manner.
The use of specially adapted products, for example to seal windows, ventilation pipes and other through-fittings, avoids the cutting and taping of air and vapour barriers. Our corner, angle and through-fitting seals simplify and clarify work, producing an extremely tight result," says Gustavsson.

The name Conci™ comes from the French, concierge, meaning doorkeeper. For Paroc, this means keeping heat and vapour inside the envelope, a requirement in the construction of buildings with very low energy consumption.
"Airtightness is a very important element in an energy-efficient building. Studies have shown that a non-leakproof building can waste 50–70 kWh more energy per square metre of floorspace each year compared with an airtight building," says Gustavsson.
