Wienerberger’s revolutionary Porotherm Dryfix System can drastically reduce water consumed during building construction

Quick Fix Water Saving Solution
Over the years, precious water sources, especially in urban cities, have been depleting at an alarming rate. An exponential growth in migratory population, with the resultant rise in building construction to accommodate the growing population, and climatic changes affecting seasonal rainfalls, have put an enormous strain on cities’ ground water resources, which are reducing faster than they can be replenished naturally.

It is estimated that an average 27,000 liters of embodied water gets consumed for every square meter of built up area of buildings in cities. During construction of a building, the maximum water usage occurs during preparation of sand and cement mortar, and during curing of the walls before and after plastering. An average of 350 liters of water is consumed for every one meter of wall construction.

Quick Fix Water Saving Solution
Wienerberger, a global leader in developing sustainable green building materials, has come up with a simple solution that can radically reduce water consumption during the construction phase of a building. It has introduced Porotherm Dryfix.System, a quick-fix solution that does away with conventional masonry practices. It removes the need for wet mortar and thereby reduces the need for water for wall construction such as infill masonry, partition walls and external walls.

The system also eliminates the need for curing, thus further leading to water savings. Considering the volume of construction in urban areas, saving water in the pre-construction stage comes as a huge relief.

The company is offering Porotherm Dryfix System along with Porotherm Grinded clay hollow bricks or Smart Bricks as a total solution. The bricks are a hallmark of precision technology with exceptional dimensional uniformity that can reduce plaster thickness, leading to huge savings for the builder.

Accoring to the company, Porotherm Dryfix.System is a dry mortar system that can entirely replace the conventional mortar and help build walls without the need for curing, thus saving precious natural resources like water and sand. This revolutionary world-class system is mason friendly, saves time, and enhances thermal protection.
