Polystyrene Insulation Boards XPS

Pressure-resistant thermal insulation board (XPS) made of extruded polystyrene foam with shiplap. The XPS insulation board provides energy savings, thermal insulation, from the basement to the roof.Just where extreme pressure and moisture stress, particularly high demands on the insulation materials, the extruded polystyrene (Short form XPS, named after extruded polystyrene foam) is the ideal solution for numerous applications. Such as perimeter and base insulation, flat roof insulation, insulation under the soil plate, in wet areas, etc. XPS AustrothermXPS ODE

Bucket = 25 kg, 1 pal = 16 buckets = 400 kg.
app. 0.20 – 0.25 kg/m2 on putties
app. 0.40 kg/m2 on plaster bases

Application: Universal priming coat for interiors and exteriors to prepare background surfaces before applying Baumit NanoporTop, Baumit SilikatTop, Baumit SilikonTop, Baumit GranoporTop, Baumit StyleTop, Baumit EdelPutz, and Baumit  MosaikTop.

Advantages: Improves adhesion and equalizes background suction. Helps to maintain colour uniformityof Baumit topcoats and improves the hydrophobic qualities of the background.

FiberGlass Mesh

Baumit FiberGlass Mesh – Star Tex

Alkaline resistant, glass fibre textile mesh for use with Baumit external wall insulation system EPS-F. Tested according ETAG 004.

Mesh size: approx. 4 x 4 mm
Surface/weight ratio: ≥ 145 g/m²

1 roll = 50 m2
1 pal = 30 roll = 1.500 m2

Properties: Optimised load failure and expansion.

Application: Provides reinforcement for Baumit contact mortars. Strengthens basecoats for Baumit External Wall Insulation systems, render carrier boards and general basecoat renders and plasters. 

Advantages: Grid provides it’s properties mainly carrying tensile stresses in the plaster, posed by sudden temperature changes climate effects. An important role in reinforcing layer has a Glass fiber mesh, which functions as a reinforcement all insulation systems.

Plug PTH

Baumit Plugs PTH

Baumit Plugs PTH is designed for mechanical fixing of facade insulation boards on the wall. Suitable for the base of concrete, solid brick, hollow brick, light weight concrete. The minimum embedment depth 3.5 cm. Lengths: 13.5, 15.5, 17.5 cm.
