Capatect CarboNit

Highly impact-resistant, carbon fibre reinforced and water-resistant 2-component reinforcing compound for use in the area of plinth

LV Texte

Field of Application

Shock and impact-sensitive walls, for example at doorways, in plinth area or along dustbin spaces.

Material Properties

2-component carbon fibre reinforced,highly impact-resistant reinforcing compound for generating a two-layered reinforced rendering in the area of plinth walls.
Thickness: total min. 8 [mm]; 1st layer min. 5 [mm]; 2nd layer min. 3 [mm].

Suitable for use in the area of splashing water due to a water repellant formulation, optimised especially for the area of plinths.

Material Base / Vehicle

Synthetic resin emulsion with filler of calcium aluminates, calcium silicates and magnesium oxide.

• Hail protection: HW 5 according to Swiss guideline VKF

Product No.


Substrate Preparation

Before the installation of perimeter insulation the building needs a protection against soil moisture according to the local situation.

Necessary drainage will not be replaced by a perimeter insulation with Carbonite reinforcement.

Other Capatect EPS thermal insulating-boards may be used in the visible plinth area.

Preparation of Material

Add the PowerPowder component into the liquid component by stiring intensively with a low-speed electrical paddle (agitator; max. 400 rpm) until a homogeneous material, free of lumps, is achieved. The quantity of both components is exactly matched; do not add any other additives.

Mixed material has a pot life of approx. 30 minutes (at 20 ° C). Higher temperatures shorten and lower temperatures extend the pot life.

Method of Application

CarboNit is applied in two layers.
Apply the first layer of CarboNit with a notched trowel in the width of reinforcing fabric sheets. Embed the Capatect-Gewebe 650/110 (reinforcing fabric) thoroughly into the freshly applied layer with an overlap of min. 10 cm along joint areas.

Subsequently apply again CarboNit, wet-on-wet, to guarantee complete cover/
embedding of the fabric sheets. The reinforcing fabric must be embedded in the upper third of the reinforcement layer.
Minimum thickness of the first reinforcement layer in total: 5 mm.

Allow to dry for approx. 24 hours (depending on climatic conditions) and apply a second layer of reinforced CarboNit in the same way than before. The reinforcing fabric must be embedded in the middle.
Minimum thickness of the second reinforced layer: 3 mm.

See below detailed information  for CarboNit in combination with further reinforcements and transition of façade surfaces to the plinth area (base wall masonry), flush with the surface.



Approx. 13.5 kg/m2 of the mixture for a layer thickness of min. 8 mm - included CarbonNit PowerPowder (i. e. approx. 1.7 kg per 1 mm of layer thickness)

Application Conditions

Processing temperature during application and curing: +5 °C to +30 ° C for material, substrate and atmosphere. Do not apply under direct sunlight or during strong wind, fog and high relative humidity. 

Drying/Drying Time

At 20 ° C and 65 % RH surface-dry after 24 hours, completely dry and ready for stress after approx. 3 days. CarboNit hardens by chemical reactions and physically by evaporation of water. Particularly during cooler period and at higher relative humidity the curing time is extended.

Tool Cleaning

Immediately after use with water.
