Introduction Nowadays many new emerging innovative materials are being invented and many new materials are being in research . New innovative thinking and new invention is necessary to save our valuable time and energy. Some of the innovative materials are included below. 4. Translucent Concrete Translucent concrete is a concrete based building material with light transmissive properties due to embedded light optical elements. It is usually made of Optical fiber. According to the concretes manufacturers, the optical fibers make up only 4 percent of the mixture.The light transmitting property makes them appear fresh, open and spacious. 5. SENSI TILE o If you walk across your kitchen floor to get something from the refrigerator, the floor twinkles with lighted path that guides your way through the dark room. o The concrete of the tiles is embedded with acrylic fiber-optic channels that transfer light from one point to another. o As shadows move across Terrazzo's surface, the light channels flicker with a randomized. 6. Radiant Barriers Can be applied anywhere in attic space of house Keeps heat out in summer, warmth in during winter Usually made of aluminum 7. Solar Panel Roofing Tiles Transform the suns energy into useable electricity to power your home! Receive rebates from the government for installing them! 8. Ultra Touch Jeans Insulation Jean is recycled through some process and it can be used for roofing like thisIt is light weight and this method reduces landfill waste. 9. ELECTRIFIED WOOD: This European-designed material incorporates a source of electricity directly into tables and chairs. If Two metal layers are pressed between the wood of the furniture, making it possible to pass an electrical current through the whole thing. The 12-volt power is fed to the metal layers via one connector, and lamps, and other devices can be connected via the other. 10. FLEXICOMB: The Flexicomb's name describes it quite well. Designed by PadLab's Dan Gottleib while he was still an undergraduate at the Yale School of Architecture, the Flexicomb is a flexible honeycomb matrix, which can be used to build lighting fixtures, furniture and sculptural installations. 11. KINETIC GLASS (Living Glass) It is made of a cast silicone that has been slit and embedded. The surface is embedded with wires that contract due to electrical stimulus . This contraction causes the slits or gills to open. The Living glass uses these microprocessors rather than motors to collect information about the environment The gills would open to allow airflow when needed thus maintaining a healthy air status quality 12. UNFIRED CLAY BRICKS: Unfired bricks are created using earth materials and are airdried instead of fired like conventional bricks. It is Eco-friendly and with additional construction properties . This has the benefit of reducing the energy used in manufacturing and increases strength and decreases shrinkage. 13. RICHLITE It is a dense material made from partially recycled paper and phenolic resin. 70 percent of the material is made with recycled paper. It has a very high strength and has resistance to High temperature up to 350 F . 14. Carbon Fiber Carbon fiber is made up of carbon strands that are thinner than human hair. The strands can be woven together, like cloth, and then that can be molded to any shape you might want. Carbon fiber is an extremely strong, lightweight material. It's five times as strong as steel, two times as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less. 15. SELF REPARING CEMENT A new self-healing cement is currently being developed which has the ability to repair its own cracks. This cement is mixed with microcapsules that release a glue-like epoxy resin that will automatically repair any cracks that form in the sidewalk or roadway. In addition this cement will have the ability to regulate heat. 16. LIQUID GRANITE The material is a lightweight and has the same load bearing capacity of cement, but is made of recycled materials. Liquid Granite is not only fireresistant beyond 1,100 degrees Celsius , It can also withstand high temperatures for longer periods . It has Moisture resisting properties. 17. BENDABLE CONCRETE A new type of fiber-reinforced bendable concrete This new concrete is around 500 times more resistant to cracking than regular. The fibers slide within the concrete when bending occurs, providing it with enough give to prevent breakage. 18. Conclusion These new emerging building materials should be replaced with the old ones to improve and helps in Recycling of the materials and save energy and make our country pollution free. If These materials these materials are used in construction we can save time , money and energy . So more new innovative materials should be created and make construction of the building simpler with more strength.
