Rubber World Industries (RWI), manufacturer of closed-cell rubber insulation, Gulf-O-flex, in the Gulf and South-East Asia, and part of the international business conglomerate, the Shaikhani Group of Companies, has claimed in an announcement that its eco-friendly rubber products are playing a major role in its efforts to leverage the growth in the Emirates, as developers across the country heed to calls for sustainability and green building codes.

It further claimed that RWI’s products were manufactured without the use of harmful CFCs or HFCs, and were formaldehyde-free, had low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), in addition to being dust-free, fibre-free and mould and mildew-resistant.

According to RWI, the Gulf-O-flex line, which include tubes, sheet rolls, sheets, coils, glue and tape, are non-toxic, lightweight, can be easily installed, are manufactured according to the set quality standards, making it the choice for projects such as Al Raha Beach Development, Saadiyat Island Project and Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Our products are also designed with a high capacity to retard heat loss for hot water plumbing, liquid heating and dual temperature piping, having a flame spread rating of less than 25 and a smoke spread rating of less than 50. Given the huge regional market for eco-friendly rubber insulation and HVAC products, we are confident that we will be able to reach our target revenues for this year.”
