I-MESH is the result of an experience based on the theoretical study and on the experience acquired on composite materials – stiff and flexible – mainly in the nautical and aerospace environment, thus in conditions which require the greatest performances and safety. It has to be regarded as an invention in terms of innovation of use and application; it has to be regarded as an evolution and a transfer of technologies which are already implemented in similar sectors. For its physical and constituent characteristics, it is sustainable, recyclable, noise-absorbing, insulating, non-combustible and it guarantees the greatest energy saving. The sustainability, a concept linked to the installations we make, becomes a company working style, a phylosophy that translate into an evergoing project. To the point that even the small waste we have in production becomes a new project a new development program, something new to invent everytime.
I-MESH yarn layout can be totally customized by our designers in close collaboration with the customer. It is constituted by different materials, also used in the nautical and aerospace sector, chosen according to the expected function. The raw materials used have excellent flame-retardant properties, high mechanical and physical performances, excellent thermal insulation power, and they are resistant to attacks of chemical debris.
Due to its reaction to light it is not possible to associate the color of the materials with a single RAL reference. However, to provide a guidance we can indicate the reference RAL related to two conditions: if radiated by the sunlight or not.
RAL 7048 un-radiated
RAL 1036 radiated
RAL 9011 un-radiated
RAL 7021 radiated
RAL 9003 un-radiated
RAL 9016 radiated
RAL 1015 un-radiated
RAL 1018 radiated
RAL 1032 un-radiated
RAL 1005 radiated
Yarns can also be dyed for major interiors projects.
RAL 2009 un-radiated
RAL 2008 radiated
RADIATION THERMAL SHIELD
The thermal characteristics of I-Mesh depend on the type and relevant density of the weaving (opening of the mesh and values of thermal conductivity, reflectance, and emissivity of the fibre).
A surface with high solar reflectance and high thermal emissivity has the capacity to reflect impacting solar radiation and to re-radiate most of the fraction that it has absorbed from the solar radiation, avoiding summer overheating.
The most important application of I-Mesh in terms of energy efficiency is architectural façades and their function as devices to screen solar radiation, double skins, ventilated façades, and thermal buffers.
