Architectural Products for Thermal Isolation
THAIPLAST™ ISOL MORTAR
Dry mortar formulated from cement, natural hydraulic lime, crushed natural cork and selected calcareous aggregates which when prepared with water produces an extremely durable, moisture permeable, textured finish. Provides acoustical and thermal insulation, whilst also giving fire retardancy.
Reduces heat transfer by creating a thermal barrier that also imparts an anti-condensation effect.
Suitable for walls and ceilings (interior and exterior) in both new or renovation construction projects.
Gives extra substrate protection against extreme movements of expansion and contraction, reducing the risk of cracking. Can be also applied indoors to prevent heat transfer, thereby giving energy savings.
Has excellent adhesion to many types of architectural substrate, such as mortar, concrete, brick, metal and glass.
For preparation, mechanically mix 2 parts of THAIPLAST™ ISOL MORTAR with 1 part of water for 2 minutes at a low rpm. Let this mixture rest for 2 more minutes and then mix again until a homogenous paste is obtained. Apply using a steel trowel. Typical coverage is 2.5 – 3 kg/m². Drying time (50% RH): 20 – 24 hours at 10 °C, 8 – 10 hours at 25 °C, 4 – 6 hours at 35 °C. New concrete must be fully cured (for a minimum 30 days after placement) before applying this product.
Requires a protective layer of THAIPLAST™ architectural paint.
