ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PILLARS OF THE ETICS – RONATHERM SYSTEM
Technological mortars are products used daily by construction professionals in repairs, refurbishments and new construction. They offer great workability and excellent technical and mechanical properties.
MAIN ELEMENT FOR EXTERIOR THERMAL INSULATION
The insulating material is the main element of exterior thermal insulation systems, as it provides the insulating capacity. Choosing it is the responsibility of the technician, and its sizing will be determined with the help of energy simulation programmes.
ETICS rhonatherm® is a comprehensive system endorsed by an ETE (European Technical Evaluation) in which the insulation material that forms part of the system is specified.
REINFORCES YOUR INSULATION SYSTEM
The fibreglass mesh threads are intertwined and braided, not allowing them to slide, thus increasing the tensile strength.
Its main characteristics are the following:
- High tensile strength. It reduces the effect of tensile stresses on the mortar base coat, which are less resistant to these stresses, preventing them from concentrating and causing cracking.
- Resistance to alkalinity. The mesh is protected with a resin film, which gives it a plastic appearance, protecting the fibreglass from the attack of alkaline metals found in mineral mortars.
- It increases impact resistance. Adjacently, the impact resistance of the system is increased by the installation of a double reinforcement in the specific areas of the façades.
The primer improves the adhesion of the final coat of acrylic mortar, regulates the degree of absorption of the support, reduces the risk of efflorescence and improves the uniformity of the finishing colour.
It is applied using a brush, roller or spray gun.
FLAWLESS EXTERIOR APPEARANCE
A different way of giving the façades an aesthetic and decorative protection that differs from the monochrome of continuous cladding, thanks to totally decorative finishes that use coloured quartz granules or multicoloured chips, including flexible synthetic tiles as a simulation of face brick and purely physical protection finishes using thick aggregate spraying.
All these products are exceptional in terms of waterproofing and breathability to water vapour and have been endorsed by the different tests to which they have been subjected.
FIXING AND ANCHORING ELEMENTS
Anchorage for light and heavy loads on the ETICS, either before and/or after installing the rhonatherm® system.
