Environmental Impacts

Think of the thousands of square feet of plastic film that may be used to try and protect surfaces during construction.

Because of inconsistent adhesion characteristics it’s not uncommon to have sections come away and be blown around the site or even far beyond.

What’s left attached when the project is complete may be difficult and even dangerous to remove, particularly when the window cleaner is trying to pull it off while dangling from a bosun’s chair on the side of the building.

Products of this nature significantly add to the millions of tonnes of plastic being added to landfills around the world… where they remain a serious problem for decades.

That’s one of the reasons why such protective plastic films have been banned in many environmentally conscious areas.

Eco Coat was engineered with this growing problem in mind.

Eco coat’s water-based polymer converter-E is applied as part of the standard window cleaning process and actually converts eco coat into its component elements by breaking the molecular bonds that hold the polymer together.

This produces a safe by-product that will not harm the applicators, your building, or surrounding the vegetation and it does not persist in the environment.

Progressive project planners interested in ‘green’ building practices or who are designing their development to meet LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) standards will want to seriously consider the Eco Coat Glass Protection System
