Thermal Insulation Systems

What is thermal insulation
& what is thermo-facade?


Thermal insulation is generally characterized by any measure taken to reduce the heat transfer between objects. Thermal insulation is distinguished in two major categories: internal insulation and external insulation.
Thermal or external thermal insulation is called the application of an insulating system to the exterior walls of the building. Insulation systems typically consist of 7 phases of special heat insulating materials.
More specifically:
Phase 1: Putting paste onto the wall-to-wall.
Phase 2: Placing insulating plates
Phase 3: Fixing the insulating plates with special plugs.
Phase 4: Placing a base coat with adhesive properties.
Phase 5: Reinforcement of the base coat with special glass mesh.
Phase 6: Priming with special primer.
Phase 7: Finishing coat color or white.

External Thermal Insulation System Vimatec


An External Thermal Insulation Composite System (ETICS) consists of specific materials with specific structure and function that are used for the thermal insulation of the external walls of buildings. Thermo-insulation plates are fixed onto the substrate with the use of glue and special anchors, and are covered by an external coating. This coating is based on a slurry (basic coating) that is reinforced with fibreglass mesh and is completed with the final coloured coating.
An ETICS provides: the most correct application of thermal insulation in construction physics terms, protection of the building exterior from all forms of moisture and free architectural and colour formulation of facades.

is a complete certified external insulation system, for old and new buildings, that has a greek origin. In many areas of Greece, the annual difference in temperature (min - max) on the exterior surface of the walls, is more than 60°C, therefore it is necessary to use durable building materials with good performance in such a temperature range.

It can be used on interior and exterior absorbent surfaces. It provides better adhesion of the next coat of plaster or paint. It prevents flaking.
High-tech composition, it deeply penetrates the surface of the substrate and provides better adhesion.
Apply to old or new surfaces, such as plaster or stucco walls. It reinforces and stabilises porous surfaces to be painted with emulsion or acrylic paint.
Due to the decrease in surface absorbance, the time required for painting is reduced, and the paint coverage is increased. It is also used as a primer to the surfaces to be coated with a colored plaster, so as to reduce the absorbency of the substrate and let the colored plaster dry evenly.

Ideal also for use on surfaces of fair-face concrete, finish-coat plasters, old painted surfaces, cement boards, plasterboards.

Internal Thermal Insulation

Internal heat insulation is the most suitable solution for old homes where fast, clean and low cost can significantly improve the thermal insulation value of the building. The outer walls can be lined either with thermal insulating panels glued internally with plasterboard or with a metal frame structure where the insulating material is fastened and the plasterboard is screwed. Also, with the use of metal frame, insulating material and drywall, the internal thermal insulation of the roofs can be done.

Flat Roof Thermal Insulation

The roof shall be constructed so as to protect (insulate) from the effects of physical, chemical and mechanical stresses. This protection results from waterproofing and thermal insulation. This waterproofing-thermal insulation is two-way with the concept of coexistence, and as is perceived, of vital importance for the construction. Extruded polystyrene solved the problem of thermal insulation in environments with a high humidity index or presence of water.
FIBRANxps extruded polystyrene boards with their closed-cell structure are excellent for insulation of environments with high humidity (inverted roofs, basements, indoor swimming pools, façades, etc.).

Fibran XPS STAR


Thermal insulation of inverted flat roof.

FIBRANstar is a composite product which consists of a board of extruded polystyrene. FIBRANxps in different thicknesses and ceramic tiles thickness 10mm. Suitable for thermal protection in the systems of inverted flat roofs.
Suggested applications: Thermal protection in the systems of old & new flat roofs.
