What are green building materials? What makes our products green building materials?
In the processes of row material extraction , product manufacturing , and using, recycling and reusing, the materials that create the least impact to the environment and are harmless to the human beings are known as green materials.
Catagories of green building materials:
- Recycled Content Materials
- Rapidly Renewable Materials
- Low-Emitting Materials
- Reused Materials
- Regional Materials
- Low Embodied Energy Materials
- High Performance Materials
The Earth Green eco insulation foam board contains recycling eco foam materials without any volatile organic compound. The raw materials are sourced from and manufactured in Taiwan. The production process is limited to mixing, blending, foaming and cutting with no burning that consumes high energy. Thus, the process only generates a small amount of carbon emission. In addition, the material boasts features such as lightweight, fireproof, insulation and soundproof, making its a superior green building material that providess environmental protection, health and high performance.
What is the ingredient of Earth Green eco insulation foam board?
The ingredient of recycled materials, natural mineral stones and cement.
The material forms a closed-cell structure, which can be applied to building, soundproof and fireproof materials, making it a new breakthrough.
How is Earth Green's drywall system deployed with water and electricity pipelines?
The installation of water and electricity pipelines can be carried out before the wall is sealed.
- Ducts can be drilled on the face of the wall for the installation of water and electricity pipelines.
- Refill the gap.
- The finished drywalls meet the demand of bump-in-the-road pipelines technique for new construction works.
Is adhensive required when installing the foam boards?
Adhesive is not required when installing the faom boards. However, a layer of cement adhensive need to be applied to fill the gaps on the finished wall surface.
How to cut insulation boards when the piling reaches the upper edge of the wall or when you need smaller boards?
You can cut them easily with a box cutter or a handsaw.
How is the hanging capibility of the Earth green drywall system?
The hanging method of heavy objects is similar to typical drywall system, which requires to install objects on the stud, or add on a galvanized steel plate to enhance the hanging load at the place that needs to hang heavy objects.
What is the construction method for waterproof and soundproof works in the bathroom?
The method is similar to typical drywall system.
- The wall is covered with cement boards on the inner bathroom side, then apply with flexible cementitious waterproofing on the surface of cement board.
- Apply a layer of waterproof materials, then install tiles with tile adhisive.
- Construction finished.

|Installation of pipelines||Installation of pipelines is easy. Once the framework is installed, installation is allowed to proceed.||Installation of pipelines is required before construction. Only a limited amount of change is possible afterwards.||Laying of pipelines is difficult. Space within brick walls have to be dug out afterwards. If the quality of the constrcution is poor, the structure's safety will be affected and will crack easily.||Laying of pipelines is difficult. Space within brick walls have to be dug out afterwards.
