Ramco Industrie's flagship product in the green line up is Hilux. Ramco Hilux is a Calcium Silicate Board made from siliceous and calcareous materials reinforced with cellulose fibers. The boards are made using laminar process and then HPSC process to give a stable crystalline structure.
Ramco Hilux scores overwhelmingly against plywood, gypsum, MDF boards or any other wood composite boards in the market with its phenomenal properties and is the ideal choice for dry construction – be it walls, partitions or ceilings. Some of the most remarkable ones are:
Fire Resistant: Calcium Silicate Boards are known their fire rated partition and are one of the most successful materials used in Europe for fireproofing. In comparison, where plywood would burn in minutes, Ramco’s Hilux can withstand the same for more than 4 hours.
Water Resistant: Ramco Hilux is dimensionally stable even when it is soaked in water for 24 hours.
Termite Resistant: Ramco Hilux is inorganic in nature hence it is 100% termite resistant -unlike plywood and gypsum boards which are feast for termites.
Fungus Resistant: Ramco Hilux is the only board with zero fungus growth ensuring clean and healthy environment. Dampness and natural wear and tear causes the growth of fungus on wooden and plywood substances.
Sound Resistant: Ramco Hilux boards and acoustic tiles have superior sound resistant properties with transmission class between 39 - 56 dB, making it a suitable choice for auditoriums, recording rooms and theatres.
Thermal Insulation: Ramco Hilux boards have good thermal insulation properties. This minimises heat transfer in buildings and results in 40% energy and cost savings.
Eco-Friendly: No wood is used in the manufacture of Ramco Hilux so there is no deforestation and this helps Mother Earth stay green and healthy.
Superior Finish: Ramco Hilux lends itself for various types of finishes - paints, wallpapers, laminates, veneers and ceramic tiles.
Sound Proof: Hilux has a range of acoustic ceilings, which if put in place, can reduce the excess outside noise pollution by up to 55%, making it a suitable choice for sound rooms, recording rooms and theatres.
Protection against Termites: Plywood Sheets are known to be breeding ground for termites and hence they cannot be reliable for long term projects. Hilux, on the other hand, is completely termite proof.
