Development of Thermal Insulation Plasters for Insulating and Sanitation of Building Constructions

J. Zach, R. Hela, M. Sedlmajer, and J. Hroudova

Abstract—Work on thermal insulation of outer structures of buildings is an issue that is often closely associated with moisture sanitation and recovery / sanitation of the damaged layers of outer surface conditioning. In the case of historic buildings or in the case of sanitation aimed at a part of the outer structure only, it is not possible to apply conventional external thermal contact insulation systems (ETICS). Regarding these cases, there is an effective way consisting in application of thermal insulation plasters with high porosity and regulated capillary properties which ensure improvement of thermal and technical properties of the structure, its diffusion openness towards the outside environment. In case of appropriate conditioning of the capillary properties, it can prevent liquid moisture and salt from penetrating toward the outer surface of the structure. The paper describes the results of research that is oriented toward the development of ultra-light thermal insulation plasters on silicate base, which can be due to high porosity and good stability at elevated humidity used for applications with higher moisture load too.

Index Terms—Historical objects, sanitation, thermal insulating plasters, thermal technical properties.
