(PowerKorea) The South Korean government’s Carbon Neutrality 2050 includes a 7.2 billion won (6.4 million USD) energy efficiency improvement investment. Energy efficiency in other words is saving energy. Every summer and winter, Koreans get shocked by energy bill; and the shock is bigger in commercial facilities. Electronic goods companies are busy introducing energy efficiency products every year as much as energy solution companies to find energy saving solutions.
The South Korean energy materials development company Innature is making a strong presence in the field with a variety of energy saving films that are light, cost-effective and reusable. The hottest seller ‘dabansa’ is receiving excellent reviews for effectively blocking the radiant heat. The team that developed ‘dabansa’ at Innature is but the team that carried out a 4 year 7 billion won project ‘Floodlight Auto Adjustable Film’ of the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning.
If the existing films on the market use polyethyleneterephthalate in 3 layers which goes 3 times of coating processes, the Innature film ‘dabansa’ uses PVC material in 1 layer which goes a single process. It is made by spraying the ceramic materials evenly in nanoparticle onto PVC films. Thanks to this single process, the weight is light and the price is 1/3 of the existing films on the market. Another good thing about ‘dabansa’ is that it is attachable with water while other similar films use bond to attach.
Encouraged by the good reviews on dabansa, Innature recently introduced ‘dabansa premium’ with improved sleekness and auto adjustable UV rays block. Also, it is firepoof.
A test showed that dabansa made temperature between inside and outside of a smart farm by 10 degree. It is notable that mere 1 to 2 degree difference in greenhouse can save huge amount of energy and it also affects growth of plants positively. The price is 10 times cheaper than the ones used for greenhouses. The film works like the ozone layer which absorbs X-ray and UV-rays from the sun thanks to Innature’s semiconductor character liquid made by mixing minerals and oxygen.
Innature was established in August 2018. With excellent R&D capability in energy saving films, the company has built a client pool including large companies. CEO Han Se-jin plans to launch a wadis crowd funding in April this year on which he will push forward the spur of the business. And with yet another latest development ‘dynamic aqua blind’ that improved penetration rate to raise photosynthesis wavelength, Innature is ready to fly high.
“We are expecting to expand the product lines to fingerprint proof and military aircraft monitor this year. And it is I and my team’s global ambition to grow Innature into a unicorn of the global functional film market” says Han.
