It is becoming clear that applications of EM.1® products can improve the function of materials in the field of construction as well. Experiments have proven that EM.1® products enhances the durability of buildings and reduces the damage caused by organic solvents in paint and adhesives.

Measures against sick building syndrome

Experiments have proven that there is a formaldehyde inhibitory effect, which serves as a countermeasure for sick building syndrome.

Using EM.1® products on construction sites

Mixing EM.1® Materials into concrete has been adopted on various construction sites. Many buildings and houses have been built with EM.1® materials, implemented right from the design phase. In Malaysia, there is an “Eco Town” where EM.1® products has been utilized not only in the concrete, but also in cleaning, tree maintenance, and waste treatment. The precise mechanism that causes EM.1® to produce its beneficial effects is still being researched. However, the owners of EM.1® buildings have reported that there are no distinctive chemical smells in newly-constructed units, mold does not grow easily, and there is high heat-retaining effect. From a mental perspective, they also agree that EM.1® buildings are comfortable to live in.

To take advantage of these effects, natural construction materials such as EM.1® Diatomite and EM.1® Plaster have been developed and used in different places.
