Ceresit Ceretherm ETICS

The history of CERESIT, one of the Henkel Group’s main brands, began a hundred years ago with the foundation of Dattelner Bitumenwerke and the development of Ceresit waterproofing products. In 1970, the product range was extended by mortars, plasters and paints. After having been registered in 1971, the trademark “Ceresit VWS System” was launched in spring 1972. Since then, ETIC systems by Ceresit have been used to protect and decorate the facades of buildings all over the world.

Ceresit Ceretherm ETIC systems ensure the long-lasting and excellent thermal insulation of buildings. The parameters of the products offered within Ceresit Ceretherm systems are mutually compatible in terms of physical and chemical properties. Only this compatibility among the different layers and coatings applied can ensure the durable performance of the whole system.

– Better thermal insulation of walls is the basic operating principle of Ceresit ETIC systems. While protecting the building against the loss of heating or cooling energy, they at the same time provide the facade with an aesthetic coating.

– Ceresit ETIC systems cut down on energy costs, improve the living comfort by providing

a pleasant microclimate and contribute to the protection of our environment. On the other

hand, they have a decorative function and ensure the attractive appearance of the facade through a wide choice of plasters and paints.

– Ceresit ETIC systems can be applied to the facades of both new buildings and old buildings in need of thermal renovation. No matter what type of building it is – whether

a multi-flat building or a single-family house.

– The product portfolio includes:

– special mortars suitable for different insulation materials

– plasters and paints (mineral, acrylic, silicone and silicate)

– primers

– polystyrene, mineral wool insulation boards and supplementary elements

The thermal protection of buildings is a complex challenge which requires a profound analysis of the following aspects: building physics, economy of execution, use of the building and ecology.

Buildings which we live and work in need to have a safe and pleasant climate, independent of the actual weather conditions outside.

We expect the walls that surround us to ensure not only a stable temperature and moisture level, but also the lowest possible noise level. Naturally, we expect these criteria to be fulfilled in a permanent way and without incurring substantial costs.

in a permanent way and without incurring substantial costs. Why should buildings be thermally protected? The

costs. Why should buildings be thermally protected? The quality of the building’s thermal insulation

The quality of the building’s thermal insulation determines the monthly operating costs (cost of heating and hot water supply). In the future (once energy certification of buildings has been introduced), it will also determine the monthly rental amount as well as the building’s market value. The energy performance of a building with

respect to its thermal insulation is indicated by the building’s annual consumption of energy.

It depends on the amount of heat lost through

walls, windows, roof etc. and the ventilation system. But it also depends on the efficient use of solar radiation, the effectiveness of the heating system and on the type of hot water supply used.

Among the reasons for a building’s high energy consumption we can count first and foremost

excessive heat loss due to insufficient insulation. Other main reasons are the low effectiveness of heating installations and the absence of

a heating cost allocation system in multi-family buildings (hence no motivation to save on energy costs).

Consequently, there is a high need for us to ensure the optimum thermal and acoustic insulation of partition walls and to intelligently design their vapour permeability.

Whenever a building wall separates zones of different climatic conditions (e.g. a frosty January morning outside and cosy +21°C inside the building), the wall is an area subject to various processes of transition and transport. Heat always permeates from areas of higher temperature to cooler zones. In winter, heat flows from the heated inside to the cold outside of the building. In summer, with higher outdoor temperatures, heat flows to the inside of the building. The external building envelope is responsible for the heat flowing from the warm inside to the cold outside – not only through the walls and the roof, but also through the window frames and doors as well as via the ventilation system. In addition, one must also consider the heat lost via floor slabs, foundations and the cellar in case one exists.

The following diagrams illustrate the percentage amounts of heat lost through the building envelope.

Single-family house

ventilation 15 % roof 20 % walls 40 % windows 15 %
ventilation 15 %
roof 20 %
walls 40 %
windows 15 %

basement 10 %

Multi-family house (10-floor blocks of flats built of large precast concrete slabs)

ventilation 30 % roof 6 % walls 37 % basement 3 %
ventilation 30 %
roof 6 %
walls 37 %
basement 3 %

windows 24 %

The above diagrams clearly show that the building’s external walls contribute significantly to its total heat loss, regardless of the type and size of the building. For this reason, efficient thermal insulation of the facade walls is absolutely essential, especially of projecting parts (such as balconies), by making use of external thermal insulation compound systems. ETICS are able to reduce the intensity of the heat flow through the walls. They can also limit and compensate temperature changes within a building and – of equal importance – within the structural layers of the wall itself.

If the temperature on wall surfaces is kept as constant as possible, this will result in a higher living comfort inside – not only by reducing the moisture (no vapour condensation and thus no chance for mould to grow), but also by decreasing the intensity of convection current inside rooms.

Walls without thermal insulation have a high heat loss, caused by the lower outside temperature. The wall surface inside the room always feels cold.

If the wall has been thermally insulated, the heat lost through this wall is much lower. As a result, the internal wall temperature is much higher than for a non- protected wall.

The upper diagram shows the temperature gradient for a wall without thermal insulation:

inside the building the air temperature is +20°C, whereas the outdoor temperature is a frosty -10°C. The diagram shows that the internal wall surface has a temperature of +10°C, which is much lower than the temperature inside the room.

This causes a perceptible, unpleasant air movement. The amount of energy needed to maintain a sufficiently high temperature inside the room is quite substantial. If, however, the wall has been thermally insulated (2nd diagram), the difference between the air temperature and that of the internal wall surface is much lower. In a thermally insulated wall a rapid drop in temperature takes place in the area where the insulation material has been installed.

been installed. Why should buildings be thermally protected? Whether you heat the building or cool it

Whether you heat the building or cool it down – both processes are invariably associated with costs. These costs are caused by the initial investment in and installation of suitable equipment (heating system, air conditioning etc.) as well as by its operation. The consumption of energy needed for the proper operation of heating or air conditioning systems does not only cause economic costs, but also means wasting our limited ecological resources. It has been known for a long time now that excessive emissions of CO 2 produced by burning all types of fuel cause the greenhouse effect and lead to global warming – an imminent danger for all of us. Is each of us aware of the fact that the heating of buildings causes as much as 30-35 % of global carbon dioxide emission into the atmosphere?

If, however, we limit the energy consumption of our homes, e.g. by installing ETIC systems, we will be able to cut down on the amount of energy consumed, to slow down the depletion of our natural resources, and to limit the emission of greenhouse gases.

Why ETICS?

Within the ETIC systems, thermal insulation boards are fixed with a special mortar to the outside wall, their surface strengthened with a mortar and reinforced with a glass fibre mesh and finally coated with a thin layer of decorative plaster. Buildings that have been equipped with this kind of thermal protection comply with the requirements for high thermal comfort inside buildings. In addition, ETIC systems help avoid environmental pollution while at the same time giving the facades an attractive and individualized appearance.

Why should buildings be thermally protected?

Depending on the structure of the external building wall, it is possible to achieve a higher or lower degree of thermal insulation for the building envelope – expressed by the heat flow or U-value. A low U-value, however, does not always imply successful insulation. The walls of our buildings are not homogeneous. They are “disturbed” in many ways – by window openings, door frames and their lintel beams, floor coping slabs, projecting loggia and balcony slabs, terraces and plinths. All these elements as well as deflections, quoins, contact points of walls and roof disrupt the single-direction flow of the heat passing through the partitions. The negative effect of these disruptions can be noticeably reduced by installing thermal insulation layers on the outside of buildings. These „envelope” not only the wall surfaces, but also the above-mentioned structural components. ETIC systems have been designed for these particular applications. They allow the creation of a continuous warm “envelope” around all quoins and edges of the building, including the balcony slabs, bridging gaps and joints between large slabs, and sealing both linear and spot-like thermal bridges.

and sealing both linear and spot-like thermal bridges. The effect of thermal insulation on a building’s

The effect of thermal insulation on a building’s external walls is visible in the two thermographic pictures above.

In the left picture, the colours yellow and orange mark areas of visible heat loss that can be avoided. Heat flows from the

inside of the building, thus raising the temperature of the facade walls. The right picture shows a building whose facade has been thermally insulated. The areas are identical, but they now appear in

a blue colour, i.e. they have a much lower temperature due to their thermal insulation. Heat is prevented from flowing from the inside to the outside.

The growing popularity of ETICS is based on the numerous advantages that this technology offers. They include:

– effective increase of wall insulation and elimination of thermal bridges thanks to thermal insulation of structural elements which are used to vary the facade design such as balconies, loggias, pilasters and plinths

– complete renovation of the facade and maintaining or changing the building’s appearance depending on the investor’s or architect’s instructions

– lightweight system which, as rule, does not affect the building’s structure so that it can be applied on almost every facade

– possibility to improve the building’s geometry by masking the existing curves and wall cracks of the facade

– the easy workability of the thermal insulation material facilitates the imitation of rustication, the decoration of window frames etc.

– easy installation of effective and aesthetic thermal insulation, combined with an attractive price and long-term durability over decades

ETICS have been designed as jointless systems. This means that they provide a continuous protective layer on the surface to be insulated which can subsequently be covered with a thin plaster. Such a finish ensures very effective protection of the thermal insulation layer against corrosion caused by the influx of water and against exposure to sunlight (especially UV radiation).

Alternative methods of thermal insulation

Among other methods aimed at providing sufficiently high wall insulation, two main

groups can be distinguished: those that are applicable exclusively while the structure is being erected and those that may also be used in the subsequent stage.

In the first group worthy of attention are systems

of single-layer walls of lightweight cellular

concrete blocks or hollow bricks of porous ceramics. They combine two properties: on the one hand they are load-bearing, on the other hand they provide thermal insulation. Owing to thermomechanical differences between the blocks and the masonry mortar, the heat

flowing through such walls or cracks varies and constitutes a serious technical problem. The pictures included in this brochure show thermal images of the analyzed buildings. In conformity with the temperature scale visible on each of the images, lighter areas indicate places with a higher temperature and darker areas those with

a lower temperature. When photographed from

the outside, a heated building should ideally have

a

stable and homogeneous facade temperature

in

a period of cold weather. All lighter-coloured

areas in a thermogram indicate spot-like and linear thermal bridges, i.e. places where excessive amounts of heat are released.

released. 14 Why should buildings be thermally protected? Three-layer wall of a building made of large

Three-layer wall of a building made of large prefabricated concrete slabs with an intense visible heat outflow through the structural joints.

Another solution that is only feasible while erecting a building are three-layer walls. A cross- section of such a wall shows that it consists of a load-bearing layer made of concrete or brick, an insulation layer made of various foamed or fibrous thermal insulation materials, and a top layer consisting of similar materials as the load- bearing layer.

There is one disadvantage that both methods have in common: a considerable part of the wall mass is exposed to marked changes in temperature and humidity (including the alternate freezing and thawing of water). This causes the structure to age prematurely. With three-layer walls it is necessary to mechanically join the top and the load-bearing layer. Metal anchors are used for this purpose which unfortunately produce thermal bridges.

The second solution is applicable on finished structures and during thermal renovation. It involves the installation of additional thermal insulation materials on an already existing load-bearing layer of the wall. If such materials are installed on the correct side of the wall, i.e. the external one, the entire load-bearing layer is thermally protected against adverse weather conditions. This ensures a substantial increase in the structure’s durability. Depending on the selected method of execution, various thermal bridges can be eliminated – as is clearly visible in the thermal image of the building.

Two-layer wall with thermal insulation produced by using dry technology, with an intense visible heat outflow caused by air flowing through the insulation layer – ineffective wind insulation.

All thermal insulation materials used in the solutions presented here have low resistance to direct climatic impact (such as sunlight or humidity). As a result, they need to be protected, e.g. by installing a curtain layer. Top layers are divided into those produced in the “wet method” and those installed using the “dry method”. They are available in a light and a heavy variant. The lower the weight of the top layer, the better – and the easier to fasten it safely and permanently to the wall. Top layers installed using the “dry method” require a large number of mechanical fasteners that puncture the insulation layer and constitute thermal bridges. Their installation requires utmost precision – otherwise even small mistakes would be already visible from a large distance.

Why ETICS?

Lightweight top layers produced with ETICS are an optimum solution, because their small mass and thickness facilitates fastening, does not overload the wall and the thermal insulation material on which it is installed, and helps to avoid the occurrence of thermal bridges in the insulation layer.

Why should buildings be thermally protected?

Proper thermal insulation generates a good microclimate inside the building. In winter, the wall surface does not excessively cool down, and on hot summer days thermal insulation ensures that the building is pleasantly cool inside. In addition, the building structure is not subject to stress caused by temperature fluctuations. Corrosion processes, e.g. of the metal anchors used in three-layer walls, are slowed down.

The advantages of ETIC systems are, of course, also noticeable when erecting new buildings. The walls only need to have minimum thickness as thermal comfort is ensured by the use of light-weight thermoinsulation materials. As a result, the building is much lighter and cheaper in operation.

Costs incurred for installing an external thermal insulation system already pay off after only a few years since the heating bills for the building may go down by as much as 30 %.

Being a structural element of a building’s facade, it goes without saying that ETICS needs to comply with the overall safety requirements of the building, of its residents and of its surroundings. This is why the technical properties and the durability of the system need to be properly tested and approved before the system can be applied on any facade.

Declaration of Conformity together with technical specification is a document which confirms that the given ETIC System can be sold on the market and used in buildings construction. It can cover the whole system or can be issued for each of system's components separately. Declaration of Conformity is always issued by the organisational unit which is system offerer/collector. The technical specification usually means national or European technical approval or national or European standard.

In Poland, Technical Approvals are issued by the Instytut Techniki Budowlanej (ITB) [Institute of Construction Technology], based on the principles contained in documents ZUAT-15/V-03 (for systems based on foamed polystyrene) and ZUAT-15/V-04 (for systems based on mineral wool). Each of the Ceresit Ceretherm VWS, WM Systems obtained the Technical Approval of the Instytut Techniki Budowlanej. These approvals were given in recognition of the positive evaluation of the systems. They specify in a detailed way the requirements that the individual system components are expected to meet. Any external thermal insulation composite system applying for European Technical Approval (ETA) needs to have a durability of at least 25 years. ETAs are granted by special research institutes which are recognized by the European Commission. The tests performed by these institutes conform with the guidelines of ETAG 004:2002 (European Technical Approval Guidelines for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems with Rendering). In addition, the European Standards EN 13499 and EN 13500 apply in EU member states and in some countries associated with the European Union. These standards relate to systems based on foamed polystyrene and mineral wool. The research methods used to conform with the above documents differ in details, but they always deal with the same properties:

effectiveness, durability and safety. Each method

covers procedures that define:

– the mechanical properties of the tested system (interstitial adhesion, resistance to impact, denting or puncture)

– the transport properties (thermal resistance, vapour permeability or diffusion resistance, water absorbability)

– durability and strength (various climatic

examinations are followed by tests that examine the adhesion of the plaster layer to the insulation material)

– reaction to fire The Ceresit Ceretherm VWS Classic system obtained the European Technical Approval No. ETA 06/0260. This is granted as soon as the conformity of the system with the requirements specified in the Recommendations for Granting the European Technical Approval ETAG 004:

2002 has been proved. The provisions stipulate that the system conforms with the following six Essential Requirements (specified according to the European Parliament and Council Directive No. 89/106):

– mechanical resistance and stability (ER1)

– safety in the case of fire (ER2)

– hygiene, health and environment (ER3)

Contrary to other documents mentioned above, this certification requires intense testing of the system’s durability at a scale of 1:1 – and not only on small models with an area size of 0.04 to 0.25 m 2 as specified in the majority of local standards. These tests take place in so-called climatic chambers. Such a climatic chamber resembles a house that has been “turned inside out” – with one of the walls being replaceable. This wall is thermally insulated with the system to be tested. A rectangular opening (see figure

below) is left in the thermal insulation system to increase the likelihood of defects (each corner is

a type of notch that disturbs the protective layer). For every system to be tested one research wall

is used where not more than two plasters are

Both European Standards EN 13499 and EN 13500 as well as ETAG 004 are based on average values derived from local requirements of the member states. Therefore there are situations when local requirements regarding certain parameters in the given country are different then those common

for the whole EU. Acc. to Directive 98/106/EEC,

while introducing a product to the given market,

it has to fulfill more rigorous standards (either

local or those of the EU). A good example are the differences in fire safety: in some countries the requirements to be met are more rigorous than those of the EU. By contrast, there are some countries where the relevant regulations are more liberal, and then the EU regulations are binding and must be respected.

In addition, one should bear in mind that the Technical Approval, European Technical

Approval, Certificate of Conformity always concern the entire system, and not its individual elements. All system components must be fully compatible, i.e. mutually matched. Any unauthorized omission or replacement of particular system components is therefore not

admissible. The application, installation or use of elements not included in the system, or execution of the thermal insulation in a way or under

results in

According to the Building Code, renovation of

a facade that affects the appearance in

comparison to the surrounding buildings of the town is subject to obtaining a special approval for construction. In such an event, it is also necessary to submit a construction plan.

The basic building regulations of a binding nature are technical requirements for buildings and their situation. When issued as an Ordinance, they define among others the upper limit of the sea- sonal heat demand E o for residential buildings. This value, which is expressed in kWh/(m 3 year), changes depending on the proportion of the total surface of the envelopes of all heated internal walls of a building to the cubage of this building (e.g. in Poland it amounts to 29 to 37 kWh/ (m 3 year). The Ordinance also specifies maximum values of the heat transition coefficient U max of particu- lar envelopes, including also facade walls of a building. In Poland, for example, this value for layer walls in one-family housing amounts to 0.30 W/(m 2 K). For public utility buildings the value of U max ranges from 0.45 to 0.65 W/(m 2 K), depend- ing on whether the wall contains windows, doors or balcony doors. Also of importance is the requirement to the design of partitions: at com- putational temperatures and relative air humidity, the temperature on the internal wall surface must be at least 1°C higher than the temperature of water vapour condensation. The Ordinance also specifies 25 m as the maximum level at which flammable materials must be used on external building walls. In addition, it is allowed to install thermal insulation made of foamed polystyrene for walls in 11-floor buildings erected before 1 April 1995, provided that the thermal insulation method applied does not allow the propagation of fire. After testing the fire behaviour of Ceretherm VWS and Ceretherm WM Systems, they obtained the required classification of materials that do not cause fire to spread. Additionally, the Ceretherm WM Classic System was classified as a non- flammable material, allowing its application on structures higher than 25 m and on public utility buildings which require the more effective prote- ction of facilities and people against the risk of fire.

Calculation of thermal insulation requirements

The basic function of thermal insulation systems is not their improvement of a building’s appearance, but much more their improvement of the heat and vapour transmission properties of the building’s facade walls. These can be calculated in an objective way.

Before selecting the proper type and the details of thermal insulation for an existing or newly designed building, it is therefore recommended that the hygrothermal properties of its envelope be analyzed.

How is a building’s energy saving calculated?

Building materials differ very much with respect to their ability to prevent heat losses. A parameter which characterises materials in this respect is the coefficient of thermal conduction coefficient l given in W/mK. The coefficient indicates the amount of heat flowing during one second through 1 m 2 material of 1 m thickness when the temperature difference on its surface amounts to 1°C. For example, the l value of concrete is 1.7 W/m·K, for a wall of full ceramic bricks 0.77 W/(m·K). Materials that are used for thermal insulation have a much lower thermal conductivity: the value of foamed polystyrene is 0.040 W/(m·K), and for mineral wool it is 0.042 W/(m·K). The thermal resistance of material R can be expressed as the relationship between its thickness d (expressed in meters) and the lambda value:

thickness d (expressed in meters) and the lambda value: Thermal resistance is indicated in m 2
thickness d (expressed in meters) and the lambda value: Thermal resistance is indicated in m 2
thickness d (expressed in meters) and the lambda value: Thermal resistance is indicated in m 2

Thermal resistance is indicated in m 2 K/W.

If the building envelope consists of several

layers of materials with different coefficients l, their respective thermal resistance values are summed up. The equation for calculating the thermal resistance of a partition is as follows:

the thermal resistance of a partition is as follows: In the so-called heat transfer resistance values

In the so-called heat transfer resistance values

R si and R se are taken into account (for a building’s

external wall they amount to 0.13 and 0.04 m² K/W resp.), it becomes possible to calculate the heat transition coefficient U (formerly k) for a particular building envelope:

U (formerly k ) for a particular building envelope: The heat transition coefficient U is expressed

The heat transition coefficient U is expressed in W/(m² K) and indicates the heat loss during one second through 1 m² envelope at a temperature difference of 1°C. The lower the U value, the better the thermal insulation of the wall. Based on the U value, it is possible to select a suitable material for thermal insulation. As the insulation layer may not be completely tight, for example due to the use of mechanical fasteners that cause thermal bridges, it is also necessary to take corrections of DU into account. Consequently, the heat transition coefficient of the entire building envelope is calculated as follows:

of the entire building envelope is calculated as follows: In winter, the amount of heat lost

In winter, the amount of heat lost through 1 m 2 of an insufficiently insulated wall may equal the amount of energy consumed by a 60-watt light bulb. The calculated value of the heat transition coefficient U k must be compared with the value of U max which takes into account the type of building and type of envelope. If the U k value is known for a particular building envelope as well as its area, average temperature difference and the length of the heating season, also taking into account losses caused by ventilation and heat gains resulting from the insulation and use of facilities – it is possible to determine a building’s heat demand Q for the entire heating season. This value (related to 1 m³ cubage of the heated building) is the seasonal heat demand ratio E expressed in kWh/(m³ year). The calculated value of the ratio E must be compared with the limiting value of E o . The seasonal heat demand ratio E is a parameter which affects the market price of buildings. Naturally, the lower the E value the better. It shows that the building has a positive energy balance.

Foamed polystyrene or mineral wool?

The heat conductivity coefficients for both materials are similar. Savings in energy consumption would consequently be the same if thermal insulation boards had the same thickness. Which system should be chosen? Should it be based on foamed polystyrene or on mineral wool?

Both solutions have their advantages. Both can be applied on new buildings as well as on buildings in need of renovation. Yet, there are differences between foamed polystyrene and mineral wool, which can influence the final choice of system.

Most important properties of foamed polystyrene

Foamed polystyrene is not capable of absorption and does not lose its thermal insulation properties under the impact of humidity. The occasional condensation of water vapour which may occur along the thickness of the foamed polystyrene does not pose a major problem. Although this plastic material is obtained from processing crude oil, it does not contain any substances injurious to health. Foamed polystyrene is very light and has good mechanical properties (tearing strength approx.

80 kPa, and compressive strength approx. 130

kPa). Sound insulation is not particularly high. The water is vapour transmission coefficient is also quite low: approx. 12 × 10 -6 g/(mhPa). Temperatures above +80 °C cause damage to

foamed polystyrene as do most organic solvents. In the ETIC systems it is possible to use foamed polystyrene that fulfills the requirements of standard EN 13163:2004 for product CS(10)70 or CS(10)80 (a 10 % deformation of foamed polystyrene is caused by stresses of at least

70 or 80 kPa). The material therefore conforms

with the former classes EPS 15 or EPS 20 (thickness of foamed polystyrene in the range of 15 to 20 kg/m³). Furthermore, the material must not cause the propagation of fire, i.e. it must be self- extinguishing and must have the dimensional stability declared by the producer (after a suitable seasoning time). Foamed polystyrene panels cut of seasoned blocks (usually after period of 6-8 weeks) remain flat and do not change their dimensions.

It is permissible to use panels not larger than 120 × 60 cm.

Most important properties of mineral wool

Mineral wool is resistant to high temperature. Wool fibres produced of natural rock start to melt after being exposed for two hours to

a temperature above 1000°C. The thermal

resistance (when used as a binder) and the hydrophobic property (when used as an additive) are slightly less favourable. Mineral wool is classified as non-flammable/non-combustible material. It also has considerable resistance to the majority of chemical substances. The water vapour transmission coefficient is very high with approx. 480×10-6 g/(mhPa). This ensures the absence of water vapour transmission. The hydrophobic property of mineral wool prevents the rise of capillary moisture and the absorption of water vapour contained in the air. Mineral wool boards have a considerable weight,

low rigidity and relatively low strength. Stresses of approx. 40 kPa cause a 10 % deformation. Yet it

is the fibrous structure of the board that ensures

good acoustic insulation of walls. The mineral wool used in ETIC systems must conform with the requirements of standard EN 13162:2004 for product CS(10)40 (a 10 % deformation of mineral wool is caused by a stress of least 40 kPa). Two types of mineral wool boards may be used in ETIC systems. The first one is mineral wool with a disturbed fibre structure (density 120 to 160 kg/m³, strength at break perpendicular to the board surface >10 kPa), on boards with dimensions of 50-60 cm × 100-120 cm. The second one is a board with a laminar parallel fibre structure, placed perpendicular to the wall surface (density 80 to 120 kg/m³). Owing to their oblong shape (dimensions in general 20 × 120 cm), these boards are frequently called lamella boards.

Conclusions

When selecting the thermal insulation system for a building, fire safety is an important issue. For this reason, systems based on mineral wool should be used for the following cases: high buildings (the max. height of a building that can be thermally insulated with a system classified as not spreading fire depends on the local regulations, e.g. in Poland 25 m), buildings with a higher hazard classification (e.g. hospitals, schools, entertainment halls and other public facilities), and storage facilities for flammable materials.

Mineral wool based ETIC systems are also recommended for buildings with a high degree of humidity inside (e.g. catering kitchens, laundries and dry cleaners, water treatment plants, carwashes, public baths etc.) provided that suitable vapour barriers and hydroinsulation materials have been installed. This is due to the fact that the condensation of water vapour poses a hazard for mineral wool as it decreases its thermal insulation capacity. Although the walls of “wet” facilities are generally covered with ceramic tiles, the materials selected for this kind of environment should be analyzed as to their hygrothermal behaviour. The selection of a mineral wool based system is also recommended for buildings located in a zone of high noise pollution. Boards made of lamella wool are both handy and flexible and thus ideally suited for buildings with a curved outline.

ETIC systems are most frequently used for the thermal insulation of new buildings, but also

for the thermorenovation of existing residential housing as well as for individual investment projects. Among others, this is due to economic reasons. Facade wool is more expensive than foamed polystyrene. Foamed polystyrene, which

is almost ten times lighter is more convenient for

transport and storage. Also the mechanical fixing

is cheaper as it can be done entirely with plastic

fasteners (for mineral wool anchors with metal spindles are required). EPS boards are much

easier to process and can be cut and polished without major problems. Contrary to mineral wool fibres, foamed polystyrene particles do

not cause any irritation of the skin and mucous membranes for the product users when installing the thermal insulation. As a result, labour costs for wool based systems are higher by at least 20 to 30 %. One should bear in mind that during the time that EPS boards have been in general use for ETIC systems (mineral wool has been in use for a much shorter time), no cases of fire propagation caused by ETICS have been recorded. When choosing foamed polystyrene, there is no danger of excessive load to the building wall. One square meter of a foamed polystyrene based system with a board thickness of 10 cm weighs not more than 11-15 kg. By contrast,

a system based on facade wool of similar

thickness weighs more than 30 kg. Hence the application of wool for thermal insulation of multi- layer walls necessitates the use of sufficiently long anchor fasteners.

Ceresit CT 84 Express – the innovative adhesive for foamed polystyrene

Ceresit CT 84 Express is ready-for-use polyurethane adhesive for foamed polystyrene. It is applied with a convenient gun, thus fixing the panels is fast, efficient and clean. Moreover, Ceresit CT 84 binds quickly and is resistant to humidity and low temperature. The reinforced layer may be executed only 2 hours after placing foamed polystyrene. The result? Faster work with thermal insulation, lower effort, and extended time for other works.

– during the same day it is possible to apply adhesive, insert anchors and place the reinforced layer, thus reducing the time for insulation work even by 5 days High adhesion to mineral substrates and foamed polystyrene

– adhesion to mineral substrates, wood, metals and plastics is better compared to cement

mortars

– strength growth of the connection is definitely faster Very good insulation properties

– very low value of the thermal conductivity index l = 0,035 W/mK

– the adhesive layer under foamed polystyrene panels additionally improves the effect of heat protection for the building

– no risk for any occurrence of thermal bridges due to penetration of adhesive between insulations panels Enables managing of the works in low temperatures and high humidity

– wide range of application conditions:

– temperature of use: 0°C to +40°C

– air humidity: even above 90%

– high humidity does not slow down the process of hardening (it quickens the

process)

– at the temperature of 0°C, curing time is only ca. 3 hours

– at +40°C, complete fixing is achieved as fast as after ca. 10 minutes Low-pressure stable dimensions

– expansion of adhesive is very fast and its voluminous effect is very limited

– after fixing the panels to the facade, adhesive is not expanding any more (deformations <1

mm)

Water-resistant

– adhesive has structure with closed pores and includes water-repellent agents

– absorbability below 1% vol.

– condensation of vapour within the adhesive layer does not weaken the connection, unlike with regular cement mortars CFC-free

– ecological recipe prevents the ozone hole and greenhouse effects.

Advantages of Ceresit CT 84 Express

Easy dosing, convenient in use and extremely efficient

– does not require effort in transport and preparation

– precise dosing allows accurate application of adhesive

– negligible weight and plastic consistency increase comfort of work

– weight of the complete package including the application gun: only ca. 1 kg

– extremely efficient: the 750 ml package

sufficient for about 6 m 2 of foamed polystyrene (a 25 kg bag of typical mortar adhesive for only 5 m 2 ). Superfast – enables fast progress of work

– adhesive hardens after ca. 20-30 minutes from application

– after ca. 2 hours, the fixed foamed polystyrene panels may be ground, fixed with anchors, and then the reinforced layer may be executed using Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1” mortar

may be executed using Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1” mortar Ceresit Ceretherm ETICS Comparesement of

Ceresit VWS Express - advantages:

Express thermal insulation

– shortening time of application of the thermal insulation system by as many as 5 days. Lower cost of 1 m 2 of the system with the innovative adhesive Ceresit CT 84 Express and the Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1” white adhesive– armouring mortar – lower costs of materials, labour, renting scaffolding and transport. Better durability of the whole system of thermal insulation with higher resistance to:

– mechanical damages (impact, perforation)

– formation of scratches and micro-cracks from high contents of organic modifiers and fibres in Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1”

– difficult weather conditions (sudden changes and high amplitudes of temperature) by reducing

absorbability of the Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1” mortar by 50% and reduction of absorbability of the whole system as compared with standard requirements by 65%

– biological contamination (fungus, algae) with minimised absorbability of Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1”, optimum properties of Ceresit CT 72, CT 73 silicate plasters

– soiling with minimised absorbability of Ceresit CT 87 “2 in 1” and the appropriate selection of the

final plaster(silicone Ceresit CT 74, CT 75 plasters are especially recommended). Full compliance with the highest standards of the European Union

– it meets the ETAG 004 requirements (European Technical Approval Guidelines for thermal insulation systems (ETICS).

– it meets the ETAG 004 requirements (European Technical Approval Guidelines for thermal insulation systems (ETICS).
