Extruded expanded polystyrene:
This is a kind of foam plastic with a little modified production process. Thus, it has got more positive qualities, than usual foam plastic, but at the same time it has inherited all the flaws.
Extruded expanded polystyrene – is a light material, filled with gas. To get this material it`s been used polystyrene copolymers of styrene and its derivatives, which are made by advanced technology, based on gas filling and foaming the granules of starting material by heating method.
The main advantage of extruded expanded polystyrene – is its high durability that allows using it not only for external heat insulation, but also for floor, buckles and even road laying.
Low water absorption is caused by low capillarity of the material. Due to this characteristic thermal conductivity of the amplifier is almost absent (even despite on its staying in the excess moisture conditions). And this characteristic allows us to use the material for heat insulation of basements, foundations, floors and roofing systems without using additional waterproofing. Water absorption occurs only on the surface of material because of the destroyed small cells inside it and their slow filling with water.
Extruded expanded polystyrene doesn`t maintain biological activity and vital functions of fungus. But at the same time it`s understood, that despite the large number of advantages, this material is dangerous because of the high degree of combustibility.
One more important factor in the selection of construction materials is reinforcing net, adhesive mixture and dye.
Let’s consider this question in detail:
Construction teams often use the materials with low quality, for example reinforcing nets. The goal – is cost-cutting.
– is basic frame, which is used for heat insulation and waterproofing, consisting of glass fiber nets, impregnated with a special composition, resistant to alkalis.
The most prevalent net density is 90-165 g/m. During the heat insulation of the houses it`s recommended to use net with its density not less 160 g/m. Otherwise the density of the surface will be less, that can cause the emergence of cracks and damage.
We don`t recommend saving on material. Always trace what material has the contractor brought to you.
Now let`s talk about mixture. Choosing the material, you should pay attention on next indexes: high adhesion, plasticity, lightness simplicity in utilization, vapor permeability, weathering resistance, environmental safety and quantity of fiberglass.
Company recommends next manufacturers: Ceresit CT85, Scanmix armix term and Caparol ct 190
Warning: don`t become a victim of unscrupulous companies, that have the habit to reduce the indexes of mixtures for price reduction. Using the services of such companies may cause full remake of implemented work and double overpayment.
So, if you want to save your money, you should use the services of real professionals, who make their work qualitatively and for affordable price. Alteza
Company will always help you.
And now we approached the painting works and selection of the paint.
Painting the decorative plaster or smooth facade, you must remember one thing: the paint will meet with strong atmosphere impact. Therefore it must be proof.
Remember: in the low price segment there are only those paints, which can resist to weather conditions only for a short period of time. So, the walls will look good about a year. But then external changes will become more perceptible.
Paint resistance depends on its type, base and pigment dyes, added for color. Unscrupulous builders use cheap low-quality paints and colorants. Of course, such work is cheaper, but there is no guarantee.
Our Company uses only qualitative facade materials, which have appropriate certificates: Ceresit, Triora and Caparol
. These manufacturers have proven themselves as reliable helpers in the facade heat insulation.
We are confident in our work.
That`s why, relying on the high quality of used materials and high professionalism of the masters, Alteza
Company gives each customer the full guarantee on accomplished work – 3 years
