The thermal insulation system can be used both in new buildings and in case of restructuring, to solve problems caused by mold and water infiltration in existing ones.
This system has the goal of eliminating the “thermal bridges”, those points of the structure where the heat dispersion is greater, and causes the buildings main performance loss
The primary objective is to improve living comfort, and subsequently energy saving and achieve a drastic limitation of the formation of condensation and of water vapor, to eliminate stains and molds on the internal surfaces of the walls.
What is the “coat insulation”?
It is a technique for thermal insulation, insulating panels are applied on the entire vertical external surface of the building.
In its essential lines, the cladding insulation system provides for fixing insulating panels outside the walls, with glues and plugs, which have undergone a protective process before the final application of the covering to protect the underlying layers.
This technique is a solution indicated in situations of restoration of vertical surfaces that have a coating undergoing degradation, but above all it is advisable to use it in order to avoid the natural deterioration of the buildings walls.
The “coat insulation”
To ensure that a thermal insulation system, with the overcoating technique, is of quality and performs over time, it needs to be designed and laid down to perfection. The panels must be positioned from the bottom up and staggered at least 25 cm from each other, so as to allow a more balanced distribution of tensions. If greater than 2 mm, the joints between the panels must be filled with the same insulating material, or with a suitable low-density insulating foam
Where does it apply?
This thermal insulation is used in various types of buildings: homes, schools, hospitals, production facilities and storage.
Clearly each application area has particular advantages of thermal insulation: the reduction of heat dispersion with consequent energy savings; greater thermal comfort, the disappearance of mold from the inner walls and a total protection of the external walls from atmospheric agents (particularly profitable even in case of goods storage).
Panels such as ISOCAP 8 are made of polyiso foam with a saturated glass veil reinforcement, and are indicated by Venest for this specific insulation intervention of walls with overcoating solutions, insulation of ventilated walls and thermal bridges.
