Mineral surfaces like new construction walls, solid old render/plaster and deteriorativ paints or coatings that are suitable for glue-down the Capatect-LS-Fassadendämmplatte VB 101.
Germany: The substrate must not exceed flatness tolerances according to DIN 18202 for not-surface-finished walls.
The surface must be dry, clean and sound. Impurities and separating substances that might prevent good adhesion (eg, forming oil) and protruding mortar burrs must be removed.
Damaged, flaking paint and plaster structure must be removed as far as possible. Hollow points are to cut off flush and to reprofile flushly. Highly absorbent substrates,sanding or chalking surfaces should be cleaned thoroughly to the solid substance and primed with Sylitol-Konzentrat 111(primer concentrate).
Consumptionper m2: 1 [ m2 ] plus offcuts
Application ConditionsDuring processing and in the drying phase, ambient and substrate temperatures may not fall below +5 °C or rise over 30 °C..
Bonding of Insulation Boards
Fully embeded insulation boards:
Apply the system-related adhesive up to 10 mm thick on the substrate by an adequate machine technology. Scatter the adhesive mortar with a square-notched trowel immediately before applying the insulation board (width and depth of notches according to the nature of the substrate).
Partial embeded insulation boards:
Apply the system-related adhesive to the substrate in form of vertical strips by an adequate machine technology. These adhesive strips must form a contact area ≥ 50% with a strip width about 5 cm in a distance of maximum 10 cm from center to center, strip higth at least 10 mm.
Place the insulation boards immediately into the fresh adhesive mortar bed by slight lateral movement and pressing. Avoid mortar inside the board joints absolutely. To avoid skin formation, only areas which can be charged immidiatelly by insulation boards must be covered with fresh mortar.
Place the lamella from bottom to top touching each other and staggerd about 50 % one beneath the other. Press the lamella intensively into the adhesive mortar to achieve good adhesion.
Observe accurate horizontal and vertical reference lines.
Unevenness up to ± 1 mm must be equalised by variation of mortar quantity.
For transition joints between different types of substrate materials, or in case of ventilated facades, the insulation board joints must bridge over the joints on both sides at least 10 cm wide with safe bond ad the ends.
Fill any potential gaps ≤ 5 mm with Capatect-Füllschaum B1(filling foam) and larger joints with insulation strips.
Protect the installed but not yet coated Capatect-LS-Fassadendämmplatten VB 101 from weathering (f.e. by scaffolding tarpaulins)
Note: National regulations for fixing with dowels, anchors and fasteners vary in a wide range. Observe national regulation.
Capatect-LS-Fassadendämmplatte VB101 as fire barrier:
See national regulation for horizontal and vertical fireproofing.
Capatect-LS-Fassadendämmplatte VB 101 has to be fully embeded into the adhesive mortar and fixed bay anchors according to national regulations.
Materials and all related packaging must be disposed of in a safe way in accordance with the full requirements of the local authorities.
Particular attention should be made to removing wastage from site in compliance with standard construction site procedures.
The heat insulation plates should be cut carefully and reused wherever possible, avoiding wastage. Small amounts of wastage can be disposed of as per European Waste Code EWC 17 06 04 (insulation materials).
