NoteFor the application of the products or types of construction, the official documents of the building authorities must be observed. In Germany, this corresponds to the ""allgemeinen bauaufsichtliche Zulassung" (general building approval)/ "allgemeinen Bauartengenehmigung" (general construction type approval) of the ETICS and the products. Internationally, the "European Technical Assessment" (ETA) applies. In addition, national and international the technical information for the products must be taken into account.
SubstratesMineral substrates of new construction, solid old renders, wood and board materials, as well as load-bearing old paints or coatings or substrates according to the specifications of the ETICS approvals.
The substrate must be solid, dry, free of grease and dust and, if necessary, have sufficient load-bearing capacity for the use of anchors. Impurities and substances with a separating effect (e.g. formwork oil) as well as protruding mortar burrs must be removed. Damaged, peeling paints and textured plasters must be removed as far as possible. Hollow areas of rendering must be knocked off and flush with the surface to be rendered.
Highly absorbent, sanding or chalking surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned down to the solid substance and primed.
The compatibility of any existing coatings with the adhesive mortar must be checked by an expert.
Pre-treat substrates according to the processing instructions of the adhesive. For purely bonded ETICS, a tear-off strength of at least 0.08 N/mm2 must be maintained.
During application and in the drying phase, the ambient and substrate temperatures must not be below +5 °C and above +30 °C respectively.
In this context, we refer to DIN 18345 section 3.1.3 (unsuitable climatic conditions). Do not process under direct sunlight.
Do not bring into contact with aromatic solvents.
Fitting of Insulation Boards
The insulation boards are adhered with an offset of at least 10 cm in a bond from the bottom to the top and pressed on well. If possible, interlock the insulation materials at the corners of the building.
Ensure that the boards are laid flush and perpendicular. Do not bring any adhesive into the board joints.
Avoid height offsets at the board joints.
Fill any gaps ≤ 5 mm with Capatect-Füllschaum B1 or larger gaps with insulation strips.
In the case of transition joints between different substrate materials or in the case of
the insulation boards must bridge the joint on both sides by at least 10 cm and must be
on both sides and be securely bonded. Expansion joints existing in the building must be taken over in the thermal insulation composite system.
Damaged insulation boards must not be installed.
For necessary constructive fire protection measures to maintain flame resistance, please refer to the respective approval / type approval or the information in the german leaflet: "Technische Systeminformation Kompendium WDVS und Brandschutz des VDPM e.V."
Unrendered insulation boards on the façade must be protected from moisture and coated with reinforced base coat as soon as possible.
Bonding of Insulation Boards
Application of a circumferential bead at the edge of the panel and adhesive dots in the centre.
- Plaster systems - adhesive contact area ≥ 40 %.
- Hard surface systems - adhesive contact area ≥ 60 %.
On even substrates, the adhesive can be applied over the entire surface using a notched trowel.
applied over the entire surface. Immediately press, float and press the insulation boards against the substrate with the side to which the adhesive mortar has been applied.
Bonding with adhesive foam
When using the adhesive foam "Capatect EcoFix", apply EPS boards by applying a surrounding bead close to the edge and provide with an enclosed bead in M- or W-shape.
- Plaster systems - adhesive contact area: ≥ 40 %.
Machine bonding (partial surface method)
Apply the system-specific adhesive by machine to the substrate in the form of vertical beads. The adhesive beads must be approx. 5 cm wide and at least 10 mm thick in the centre of the bead. The centre-to-centre distance must not exceed 10 cm. The insulation boards must be immediately pressed into the fresh adhesive mortar bed, floated in and pressed on. To avoid skin formation, only as much adhesive surface may be applied as can be immediately covered with insulation boards.
- Render systems - adhesive contact area ≥ 60 %.
- Hard cladding systems - adhesive contact area ≥ 60 %.
Machine bonding (full-surface application)
Apply the system-specific adhesive to the substrate by machine up to a maximum thickness of 10 mm. Immediately before applying the insulation boards, comb the adhesive mortar with a notched trowel (the width and depth of the teeth depends on the condition of the substrate). Immediately press the insulation boards into the fresh adhesive mortar bed, float them in and press them into place. To avoid skin formation, only as much adhesive surface may be applied as can be immediately covered with insulation boards.
The boards can be laid in one or two layers up to 400 mm insulation thickness. For two-layer installation, the boards must have an insulation thickness of at least 60 mm and consist of the same EPS insulation material. The second layer must be adhered in the joint offset to the first layer with a mineral adhesive belonging to the system.
- Render systems - adhesive contact area: ≥ 40 %.
Waste should be avoided by careful cutting and reuse.
Nevertheless, dispose of small material residues according to EAK 170203 (plastic) or 170604 (insulation material).
Information on recycling material cuttings without adhesive and filler adhesions can be obtained from the "Industrie- und Handelskammer" (IHK).
