Thermedia is an innovative solution that enhances the insulation and energy efficiency of residential and office buildings, effectively reducing heat loss.
Our comprehensive lineup of Thermedia structural ready-mix concrete and screeds seamlessly blends robustness with thermal insulation, resulting in a remarkable 35% decrease in heat losses. By significantly reducing the thermal conductivity of concrete, we have achieved a remarkable factor of 5 reduction – from 1.6 W/mK for conventional concrete to an impressive 0.3 or 0.4 W/mK for thermally insulating concrete of equivalent strength. This remarkable improvement enables the attainment of leading international environmental certifications, such as LEED, BREEAM, and HQE, underscoring Thermedia’s commitment to advanced sustainability standards.
Hydromedia goes beyond being a mere product; it is a comprehensive water management system that efficiently absorbs rainwater from streets, parking surfaces, driveways, and walkways, thereby minimizing the risk of flooding.
By integrating the properties of concrete with advanced drainage technology, this permeable solution addresses the critical importance of water management. As the world’s most crucial resource, water necessitates careful handling to maximize its benefits while mitigating its negative impacts. Hydromedia facilitates the rapid removal of water, allowing it to infiltrate directly into the soil. This process contributes to the natural recharge of aquifers or enables water recycling. The diverse range of Hydromedia products is meticulously designed to cater to all your potential requirements, ranging from street pavements to roofing solutions.

Concrete is a composite material made primarily from cement, water, aggregates (such as sand and gravel), and sometimes additional additives. Here’s a breakdown of the main components:
1. Cement: The key ingredient in concrete is cement, which is a fine powder made by heating limestone and other materials at high temperatures. Cement acts as a binding agent that holds the other components together.
2. Water: Water is mixed with cement to initiate a chemical reaction called hydration. This reaction causes the cement to harden and bind with the aggregates, forming a solid mass.
3. Aggregates: Aggregates make up the bulk of concrete and provide its mechanical strength. They include materials such as sand, gravel, crushed stone, and recycled concrete. Aggregates fill the spaces between cement particles, giving concrete its stability.
4. Admixtures: Admixtures are optional additives that can be included in concrete to enhance specific properties or improve workability. They may include chemical compounds to accelerate or slow down the curing process, increase strength, improve durability, or provide other desired characteristics.
The proportions of these components vary depending on the desired strength, workability, and other specific requirements of the concrete. The proportions of these ingredients vary depending on the desired properties of the concrete. For example, concrete that will be exposed to water will need more cement and less water. Concrete that will be used in a high-traffic area will need more aggregates and less cement. The mixture is typically prepared by combining the dry components (cement, aggregates) and then gradually adding water while mixing until a homogeneous consistency is achieved.
