Supreme Industries valued insulation solutions [Sep 2011]

Established in 1942, The Supreme Industries Ltd. became a pioneer of many path-breaking products and a trendsetter in plastics products by introducing advanced solutions for various applications and industries. Atul Khanna, general manager of thermal insulation division at The Supreme Industries Lt.d, talks about the company’s thermal insulation products.
The Supreme Industries offers thermal insulation solutions to customers that are appropriate and cost-effective. The company follows the philosophy of SAVE – Supreme Always Value Efficient. The drivers of this conviction are applied intelligence and innovation to enable cost-effectiveness and precision in delivery. Every requirement is studied in great detail, various solutions are taken into consideration and the most suitable one is implemented. Ranging from superior protection, energy-saving insulation and long-lasting solutions in the civil industry, Supreme is capable of providing apt solutions to its customers.
Research and development form an integral element of Supreme Industries solutions. The company invests resources at regular intervals in developing breakthrough products. A systematic study of changing trends, shifting demands and new arrivals in technology facilitate pursuit of advanced solutions. A team of highly qualified and vastly experienced professionals at the helm of R&D activities ensures gradual development in products the industry seeks.
The growth in production sectors and the building industry has been adversely affected by the global crisis. The slowdown in the manufacturing sector was due to the combined impact of fall in exports followed by a decline in domestic demand. These extraordinary difficult times resulted in companies inventing more efficient means of operation.
High crude oil price has been one of the contributory reasons for the economic meltdown. Oil demand moderation with sentiments turning negative on commodity exchanges, caused the oil prices to nose dive. This is a lesson to be learnt on the increasing need to curb energy consumption, which happens to be one of the major components of the industry, including commercial building operation. On the other hand, the building sector accounts for approx 30-35 per cent of the total energy consumption in the country.
The cause of energy saving has also been taken up by the Indian Green Building Council formed in 2001, which set up the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) India committee to rate buildings on environmental criteria. The second system that is endorsed by the government and promoted by the Energy Resource Institute (TERI) is the Green Rating for Integrated Habitat Assessment (GRIHA).
“Energy is the single largest operating expense and accounts for more than a $100 billion in expenses for commercial buildings each year. With a view to improve efficiency and thereby enable conservation of energy, the Thermal Insulation Division of Supreme provides top-of-the-line insulation solutions with its ‘INSU’ range of products. Backed by a deep understanding of the changing trends, new-age requirements as well as intensive research and state-of-the-art technology, the Thermal Insulation Division develops customized solutions for the insulation requirements of various industries,” he said.
“Each of the products that we offer i.e. INSUshield (FR, closed cell, chemically crosslinked polyethylene), INSUboard (extruded polystyrene) and INSUreflector (radiant heat reflective insulation material) are for the purpose of saving energy in different segments of the industry and for different market applications. All our insulation products are manufactured from virgin raw material”, he added.
With an endeavour to provide world-class materials and continuously upgrade these to comply with the latest market requirements, Supreme Industries offer Class ‘O‘ fire rated material in FR, closed cell, chemically cross-linked polyethylene.
Supreme Industries was the first company to successfully commission India’s first extruded polystyrene plant at the Nagothane polystyrene complex. This plant uses state-of-the-art technology to produce 1,50,000 m3 of extruded polystyrene thermal insulation board using environment friendly CO2 as blowing agent. The plant is capable of producing boards with various thicknesses from 25 mm to 100 mm & density ranging from 30 kg to 50 kg/m3. This would help the nation to save the much-needed foreign exchange and service the home industry to meet energy efficiency requirements for the commercial building sector.
Supreme’s Thermal Insulation Division offers solutions in the following areas:Ducting Insulation in hospitals, shopping malls, airports, PEBs, IT/ BPO etc.Pipe insulation for split AC tubings, chiller piping, drain pipes, chilled water lines etc.Floor insulation in server rooms, data centres, medical & diagnostic centres, and control rooms for petrochemicals.Underdeck insulation in PEBs, textile units, malls, airports etc.Overdeck and wall insulation in commercial buildings, residential buildings, cold storages etc.‘INSUshield’ is a non-fibrous, fire retardant (‘Class O’ in fire propagation and ‘class 1’ in surface spread of flame), closed cell, tri dimensional chemically cross-linked polyethylene foam. An ideal environment friendly insulation material, with a perfect solution for all your insulation needs for ducts, roofs, pipes, vessels, etc. The divergent advantages of ‘INSUshield’ are ease of installation, low thermal conductivity and good moisture and vapour resistance preventing microbial growth and optimum condensation protection.
‘INSUreflector’ is a radiant heat reflective insulation material made of polyethylene air bubble film (ABF) laminated with aluminium foil on one or both sides. It is a low e-reflective insulation material with a low mass to air ratio, which effectively blocks the radiant heat transfer. The bright surface of the aluminium foil, which encases the FR polyethylene air bubble material, reflects 96 per cent to 99 per cent infra-red radiation received by the surface of the heated slated roof.
‘INSUboard’ – Extruded polystyrene is an ultimate solution for building insulation. It enhances the durability of the building structure and resists extreme ambient conditions, absorbs thermal shocks, mechanical loading and stresses without any deterioration in insulation properties of the product.
Quality at its best A methodical, systematic and stringent approach to quality ensures durability to all their products. The company adheres to international quality standards while manufacturing products. ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 certifications and NABL accreditation for various plants is a testimony to their serious approach to quality.
