Instant ceiling Water proof ceiling

CEILING IN A CAN (CiC) is a patented innovation that aims to create better living conditions for indigent people by providing an instant ceiling. This fresh technology originating from MUT involves two 5 liter cans containing different polymers. By spreading newspaper on the floor and mixing the two polymers (the base and the activator), a foam board if formed. The board can then be lifted and attached to the rafters creating a low-cost and easy to install ceilings. Furthermore, the newly formed ceiling has fire retardation qualities, has great insulating properties, is water proof, light weight (no supporting frame required) and half the cost of competitive products. Taken together the qualities of the CiC ceiling makes it ideal for developing countries, people living in low-cost housing and even more people living in shacks in informal settlements.
