Hydrotech believes construction is no longer just about building and development, it’s about being smart. That entails limiting the impact of the construction process on the very environment that nurtures us. This means building for the long term and catering to global needs and issues.
Hydrotech has developed products, systems and alliances that reflect their commitment to environmental sustainability. Along with producing one of the industry’s best performing membranes, Hydrotech has also introduced some of the industry’s most sustainable waterproofing assemblies. For instance, our Hydrotech (Monolythic Membrane 6125® – MM6125®) is a hot-applied rubberised asphalt that can be formulated with a minimum 40% post-consumer recycled content.
Hydrotech assemblies feature recycled content in the membrane and reduced lifecycle costs due to project longevity (which also reduces its impact on landfills).
In short, Hydrotech has the solutions that fit long-term sustainability strategies building owners and operators are demanding of the products and assemblies they specify.
