The company has claimed that ACC Airium reduces the inside temperature by up to 5 degrees in peak summer and keeps warmer up to 5 degrees in peak winters.

Sridhar Balakrishnan, Managing Director and CEO, ACC, said the product represents a new concept for insulation. It also also significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the entire building, he added.

The launch of ACC Airium is an essential component of the company’s strategy to advance the transition towards low-carbon and circular construction.

While ACC Airium is being launched in Delhi-NCR and Hyderabad markets for now, it will be available in all key markets soon.
