Shortly after AirKrete® Installer Joey Jacinto completed the 1.3 million dollar contract with the City Housing Authority of NYC. He received a call to stop in for an inspection at the apartment building. His first thought was that there was some kind of a problem. When he arrived the authorities were all smiling at him. To everyone’s amazement it seems that shortly after the AirKrete® was installed a fire broke out due to faulty wiring. The fire at Betances House Complex on, East 146th St. NY City was contained because of AirKrete®’s fireproofing qualities blocked the fire. ASTM E814/UL 1479. Joey received a big pat on the back and validation on a job well done.
Since 911 many existing buildings in NY City have been condemned and their CO’s (Certificate of Occupancy) stricken from the owners. To insure or reestablish a CO, apartments and building structures need to pass code and install proper fire walls. The pre 70’s brick building with wood joist construction, averaging six stories of 392 apartments was a great opportunity to installed AirKrete® in the interior walls and partition fire walls between apartments and pipe chases. AirKrete® is the only insulation on the market today that will retrofit any building without disruption to a tenant’s daily life and major construction costs to the owners. Joey Jacinto has 30 years in the insulation business. In the early 90’s The National Audubon Society purchased the Old Schermerhorn building in NY City and recognized AirKrete® insulation as one of the best ways to seal the envelope in their new head quarters. It was at this point Mr. Jacinto made a change. “I was happy to give up other insulations for the AirKrete®’s nontoxic world and for my own health”.ASTM E814/UL 1479.
This comes as no surprise to AirKrete®’s CEO/President R. Keene Christopher. He recalls a chimney fire below the roof at the home of Billy Day’s in Alaska. The fire took 1/3rd of the roof. AirKrete® insulation saved the rest of the house from the fire acting as a barrier to the flames.
AirKrete® is a product of air, water, and Magnesium Oxide (MgO). When the calcined MgO, which produces high temperature fireproof refractory cement, mixed with water, it becomes Oxychloride Cement. MgO is also a mineral used in our daily vitamin mineral supplements. Recent studies have proven that MgO absorbs Co2 (carbon dioxide). The MgO activates a counter action to the global warming effect by scrubbing Co2 from the atmosphere, making AirKrete® an even more environmentally friendly product.
Founded Information on AirKrete® Insulation
In the early 80’s Chemist Donald Thomson, and CEO/President Keene Christopher, Weedsport NY challenged themselves to create a chemically safe and effective means for insulating building structures. After several years of research AirKrete® was developed. Although Donald Thompson has passed, his co creator Keene Christopher has kept AirKrete® Inc on the market. AirKrete® insulation is a light substance, which filled into cavities via an AirKrete® custom application gun and hose, set up; specifically designed for the product application. AirKrete® Inc. sets up and sells AirKrete® Start up Packages to New Licensed Manufacturers.
