Boral ENVISIA: Paving the Way for Eco-Friendly Construction

Boral ENVISIA: Paving the Way for Eco-Friendly Construction

In the quest for sustainable building materials, Boral’s ENVISIA® stands out as a beacon of innovation. This eco-friendly concrete is not just a product; it’s a testament to Boral’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of construction without compromising on quality and performance.

Eco-Friendly by Design ENVISIA® is engineered to lower carbon emissions from the get-go. Traditional concrete production is a significant source of CO2, largely due to cement manufacturing. ENVISIA® tackles this issue head-on by allowing for up to 50% cement replacement1. This reduction is a leap forward in creating a more sustainable construction industry.

Low Carbon Emissions The incorporation of supplementary cementitious materials in ENVISIA® significantly cuts down the embedded carbon in concrete1By utilizing industrial by-products like fly ash, ENVISIA® achieves a remarkable 40% reduction in carbon content compared to standard concrete mixtures2.

Performance and Strength Despite the reduced cement content, ENVISIA® does not lag in performance. It achieves early age strength comparable to conventional concrete, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, from residential to commercial projects1Moreover, it outperforms traditional concretes in shrinkage and creep, offering up to a 50% reduction in shrinkage, which translates to less cracking over time1.

A Concrete Choice for the Future Boral’s ENVISIA® is more than just concrete; it’s a statement of purpose. It represents a shift towards materials that can support the construction industry’s needs while being kinder to our planet.
