✱ The effective surface is reduced by about 3% with tongue & groove edges, with rabbet edges by about 4%.
Mineral substrates of new buildings or sound, solid existing render/plaster or paint coatings and other sound/stable, even substrates. Also suitable for cement-bound particle boards or V100 according to DIN 68 763, e.g. for prefabricated houses.
Substrates must be clean, dry, sound/stable, and free from all substances, that may prevent good adhesion. Remove all impurities and separating substances, e.g. formwork oil residues and mortar burrs. Remove defective, spalling existing paint and textured render/plaster coatings as far as possible.
Cut off cavities in render/plaster and fill flush with the surrounding surface. Clean highly absorbent, sanding or chalking surfaces very accurately up to the solid substrate level and prime with "Sylitol Koncentrat 111".

Method of Application
Manual Adhesive Application
Apply adhesive mortar thoroughly to the reverse side of the thermal insulating board, using the "Bulb-point method":
Pour beads of adhesive material approx. 5 cm wide alongside the board and 3 hand-sized spots in the middle of the board. Adjust the quantity of applied material (base height) to the tolerances of the substrate, so that ≥ 40% surface area is in contact with adhesive. Irregularities up to ± 1 cm can be equalised by this application method. Alternatively apply the adhesive onto the complete surface with square-notched trowel or by roller.
If Capatect-Rollkleber 615 is used, the substrate must be absolutely planar and the adhesive has to be applied on the complete surface.
Spray adhesive material thoroughly onto the wall surface using a standard fettling machine (≥60% surface contact). The beads should be approx. 6 cm wide and min. 10 cm thick in the middle. Axial distance must not exceed 10 cm. The insulation boards have to be embedded immediately, by gently pressing them into the material. To avoid formation of skin, only apply as much adhesive as can be covered immediately.
Insulation Board Application
Install the insulation boards by working from the bottom to the top. Bond boards edge to edge and apply firm pressure. Do not bring adhesive in the panel joints. Pay special attention to install the boards flush and in a perpendicular fashion. Displacements on the board edges are to be avoided. On all building corners, denticulation has to be created in the thickness of the boards (staggered joints).
Joint spaces that may occur should be filled with insulating board strips or up to 5 mm width with Capatect-Füllschaum B1 (filling foam). Take care to avoid offset at the joints.
For joints between different types of substrate materials or cladding joints, the insulation boards must cover the joints for at least 10 cm to both sides. This has to be realised with a very sound bonding. For further details on dowelling thermal insulating boards, please refer to the ETICS manual.
ConsumptionPer m2: 1 m2 plus offcuts
Processing temperature: +5 °C to max. 30 °C for material, atmosphere and substrate during application and curing.
Avoid contact of boards with aromatic solvents.
Special Risks (Hazard Note) / Safety Advice (Status as at Date of Publication)
See "Recommendations for Safe Use"
Materials and all related packaging must be disposed of in a safe way in accordance with the full requirements of the local authorities.
The thermal insulation boards should be cut carefully and reused wherever possible, avoiding wastage.
Particular attention should be made to removing wastage from site in compliance with standard construction site procedures.
Small amounts of wastage can be disposed of as per European Waste Code EWC 17 06 04 (insulation materials).
Rating for Sound Insulation
