Who is TexNov?

First of all, Texnov is a manufacturing company that specializes in the production of coatings based on acrylic polymers, used to coat the exterior and interior walls of family homes, commercial and industrial buildings, schools, churches, etc. TexNov is concerned about its footprint in the ecosystem, for this, the company plans to develop its building materials in a sustainable way.

A thoughtful approach

Above all, the company’s vision and sustainable building materials leads it to undertake a series of actions , all with the aim of mitigating the impact of climate change.

So, it is no coincidence that in the lines of the company we find the following:

“Texnov, for comfortable homes in sustainable environments”.

The obstacles raised during the process affect all phases of production of architectural coatings, from ordering ingredients to delivery and recycling. Making sustainable building materials is not an easy goal. In addition, being very aware that the positive spin-offs for the environment very often result in higher costs, the company owes it to its shareholders and to its competitiveness.

It should not be taken lightly that the use of ecological, biocompostable and low VOC materials also requires more time and work and increases the unforeseen. Among other challenges, the market does not offer biodegradable containers capable of supporting heavy products; moreover, acrylic products capable of withstanding the weight of years very often require the use of ingredients with low potential for recyclability.

Local purchasing and Texnov

When we buy products of any kind, we can keep the lowest price, with this, we believe to save money.

First, when shopping, consumers are tempted to buy the cheapest materials; in a way, we all like to spend less, but not at the expense of quality.

The US Army was among the first to use coatings for its overseas bases.

 

Second, building materials must match local conditions, including weather conditions, humidity levels, exposure to high winds, snow, frost, etc.

In any case, buying local means investing in your community, supporting local workers and making sure you maintain a clean environment. Here are some benefits of using locally made building products:

Benefits

Effectively, local businesses pay their employees based on local rates, which creates financial stability for the local community, but they also spend money on other local businesses. By buying local, we all help create jobs for your family, friends and neighbors, help improve public infrastructure and invest in the community, both socially and economically.

Plus, buying locally also means you know more about quality control; imported goods have been designed to meet construction standards in other countries, as well as for specific needs in other realities.

In short, not all international products are meant to endure freeze-thaw cycles like we do here in Canada.

When purchasing imported building materials, it is important to be aware that manufacturing processes and potentially harmful chemicals and by-products can be harsh. Usually, internationally made products are designed for the conditions of that country, and cheapness is not always an advantage when it means products with poor ingredients.

Repair plasters make it possible to repair and embellish existing structures, which facilitates the survival of walls and floors, without producing new waste.
