Supreme Industries always strives to give you products that are best suited to your needs. With these values and aspiration we present our 'DURA and INSU range of products' especially for the waterproofing and underdeck insulation.

Climate of India is most unreliable. India being a tropical country has diversity in climates. Some regions in India have hot tropical weather while some parts have heavy monsoons. With monsoons come problems like leakage, seepage in roofs, walls, basements, bathrooms etc. in buildings - commercial / residential and factories. Hence, to shield from the huge losses incurred due to the rains, Supreme offers DURAmembrane.

DURAmembrane is a new offering in the portfolio of competent and DURAble products of the Construction Accessories Division. DURAmembrane is a new generation, cost effective solution for waterproofing of basements and roofs. It is a versatile material, capable of retaining the dryness of concrete, masonry, metal and wood structures and is resistant to salts, alkalis, and most acids. It is offered as a quick and easy-to-apply system, ensuring hassle-free maximum productivity. Supreme is the only manufacturer of this type of water proofing membrane in India. It can be used for applications like - concrete roof waterproofing, basement waterproofing and also water proofing of bathrooms & terrace gardens. DURAmembrane can not only be used in new constructions but also at the time of repair of a structure.

It does not absorb water at all. Its 'K' value does not deteriorate. Its inherent closed cell structure ensures truly effective thermal insulation and waterproofing – virtually for a life time. It is a high performance, composite polymeric membrane which is durable and lightweight. It is non-deteriorating, puncture resistant and is available in length up-to 50 meters. Talking about evaluation against bitumen based products – we all know that bitumen disintegrates after contact with water. Further, over a period it catches fungi and also starts melting during summer, thus lowering its puncture resistant strength. The striking feature of DURAmembrane is that it has a very good puncture resistance of 199 N (Test method - ASTM E154: 1999) and being polymer based, it won't deteriorate also over a long period. This is a first of its kind of concrete roof and basement water proofing product, specially designed to withstand the hot and humid Indian conditions. Our membrane is going to solve problems and reduce huge losses arising out of water leakage. The entire construction industry will benefit from this product, said Mr. Mohta.

Energy is the single largest operating expense and accounts for over $100 billion in expenses for commercial buildings each year. "With a view to improve efficiency and enable conservation of energy, The Thermal Insulation Division of Supreme provides top-of-the-line insulation solutions with its 'INSU' range of products" added Mr. Khanna. We offer customized solutions specifically for the insulation requirements of various industries, with a sole purpose of improving the energy efficiency, and thereby helping in conserving energy.

Each of the products that we offer i.e. INSUshield – FR, closed cell chemically crosslinked polyethylene, INSUboard - Extruded polystyrene and INSUreflector - Radiant barrier are for the purpose of saving energy in different segments of the industry and for different applications.

Supreme Industries' Offers Cutting Edge Solutions for Waterproofing and Underdeck Insulation

In line with this, we offer 'INSUreflector.' It is a radiant heat reflective insulation material made of polyethylene air bubble film (ABF) laminated with aluminum foil on one or both sides. The bright surface of the aluminium foil reflects 96% to 99% infra-red radiation received by the surface of a heated slate roof. It protects the building from undesirable heat gain. The thin reflective foil having low emissivity and high reflectivity when installed with an air space restricts the transfer of far-infrared radiation. A material with low emissivity is a better radiant barrier.

Emissivity values range from 0–1. Any materials' Emissivity + Transmissivity + Reflectivity = 1. An opaque material has a Transmissivity of Zero, so its Emissivity equals one minus its Reflectivity. Aluminium foil is an excellent radiant barrier. Even though it is a good conductor of heat, but the mass of the foil being small, does not gain heat and effectively reduces its flow. As opposed to this theory, the conventional fibrous products which entrap air, retard the heat conduction. These types of products reduce conductive and radiant transfer at a rate determined by their thermal conductivity or 'R' value. In fact, with conventional products laying the reflective foil underneath merely supports the product unlike the placement of the 'radiant barrier' directly below the roofing sheet to reflect radiant heat. It may however be noted that reduction in heat flow with installation of a radiant barrier is governed by a number of factors, such as ventilation rates, process performed inside the premises, ambient air temperature and humidity conditions, inclination of the roof, wind velocity and also the manner in which the radiant barrier system is installed. An important point to remember while installing a radiant barrier is that they must face an air space to perform effectively. It is easier to install a radiant barrier for a fresh construction than to go for a retrofit.

We strongly recommend that all buildings where human effort is involved or where the process so requires, be insulated for a better working environment & productivity.
