Minimum space, maximal insulation

Aeropan® is a panel designed for the heat insulation of those building structures which require a higher degree of insulation in the least possible space. It consists of a nano-technological insulation in Aerogel coupled with a polypropylene breathing membrane reinforced with glass fibre and has been designed for reduced-thickness heat insulation.

With a thickness of 10 mm – and thermal conductivity of 0.015 W/mK – Aeropan® allows reducing energy dispersion and recovering space in civil, commercial and residential buildings.

The properties of the panel – minimum heat conductivity, flexibility and compression resistance, hydrophobicity and easy installation – make it an indispensable product for providing high levels of heat insulation both in new buildings and in the rehabilitation of older ones. his product is ideal for application on outside perimeter walls and inside walls, intrados, window padding, roofs and for solving thermal bridges.

Aeropan® is the perfect choice for outdoor and indoor restructuring, as well as building recovery and historical buildings subject to architectural restraints which require top levels of living comfort.

OUTDOOR/INDOOR THERMAL INSULATION FINISHING

Heat insulation of the outdoor/indoor finishing system type, for vertical and horizontal surfaces, such as overhanging balconies and the like, consisting of a semi-rigid panel, made up of a layer of Aerogel silica reinforced with PET fibres (felt), of the Aeropan® type, water repellent and breathing, supplied in 1400×720 mm panels, with a nominal thickness of 20 mm, 30 mm, 40 mm) with volumetric density of 230 kg/m3, heat conductivity 0.015 W/mK, heat resistance Rd 0.67 m2K/W per cm of thickness, temperature of use between -200°C /+200°C, fire reaction Euroclass CS1D0, permeable to water vapour (μ 5), impermeable to surface water and/or immersion with water contact angle of no less than 150°, extended on flat or curved surfaces, vertical or horizontal, after gluing, installed on smooth, dry, dust-free and perfectly integral surfaces devoid of any roughness.

The CIP – Eco Innovation programme presents a consistent picture to increase the competitive edge and the innovation potential within the European Union.

The ECO Innovation section has promoted the spreading on the market of eco-innovative technologies and/or processes through support to pilot and first-application commercial projects. In particular, it provided support to sustainable techniques, technologies, products and processes which can be replicated at community level, and which, in a synergic way, are able to reduce environmental impact and foster less and more efficient use of natural resources, including energy.

THE CORRECT AEROPAN INSTALLATION

Examination of the state of the existent support
The plaster layer is fundamental to obtain the perfect flatness of the substrate. This requisite is ideal to install correctly a system which envisages the use of a very reduced-thickness insulation. Noteworthy is that it is necessary to prepare a cohesive and dust-free base: this is what allows the perfect adhesion of the adhesive. In case of necessity, it is appropriate to proceed with the drafting of a surface fixating primer.

Adhesive

The application of the adhesive must be realised on the back of the panel (the part with the rigid crust is the one that has to remain extern and receive the successive finishing shaving). Use a toothed spatula (teeth of 6-8 mm) applying the appropriate pression, lay evenly the adhesive on the entire surface of the panel.

The adhesive must not penetrate the joints, but in case they form themselves, these must always be filled with the same insulating material to prevent the formation of thermal bridges and possible cracks.

Between the insulating panel and the support there must not circulate air, hence the insulating panel must be fixed to the support in an even way applying the adhesive on the entire surface of the panel itself. To guarantee a better adhesion, it is possible to apply a layer of adhesive on the support too (use the same toothed spatula).

Afterwards, apply the panel to the support being careful to properly make every area adhere (if necessary, proceed with the superficial beating of the panel with a plastic plastering trowel); verify the perfect adhesion and flatness with the use of an aluminium straight edge.

Plug

The insulating sheets must be mechanically fastened using plugs. The plugging diagram and number of plugs varies according to the type of wall, but always respecting at least 6 plugs per square metre. The choice of the correct plug will depend on the length and type of the substrate.

The length of the plugs will depend on the anchor depth, on the thickness of the old plaster, on the thickness of the glue and on the thickness of the insulating material. The plugs must be installed after the hardening of the adhesive, taking care of maintaining a minimal distance of 15 cm to the corners of the panel. Use exclusively plugs of type DIPK Fischer or similar.

Smoothing product

For smoothing, the same product can be used as that for gluing. This step necessarily requires 2 coats.

  • The first coat creates 2/3 of the total final thickness and must be applied with a 5mm American toothed spatula
  • After the first coat, the reinforcing mesh, which is a fundamental element to prevent the creation of cracks between the joints of a panel and the other, must be applied
  • The second layer must be applied with a smooth spatula
  • We recommend a coverage of at least 1.5 Kg per mm of thickness.

Reinforcing mesh

Fibreglass mesh is used to prevent cracks which could be created in the facade due to mechanical forces and heat fluctuations that the facade itself has to endure. This also is useful to prevent cracks between the joints of the panels. This will have to be suitably treated to protect it against the alkalis contained in the smoothing product which could

break it down. It must also have a good gram weight, between 160-220 g/m2. The mesh must be positioned in the third external of the smoothing layer. The inner angles of architraves-soffits must be reinforced with mesh strips and at all opening angles a sweepback will have to be placed on the mesh.

Primer/Fixative
Use of the primer prepares the surface and makes it uniform. This will then be covered with the finishing coat, avoiding colour irregularities due to different reactions between materials and/or different absorption possibilities.

Finish
The system must be protected against the weather with finishing coats or by painting.Various types of products are available on the market: silica, siloxane, acrylic, vinyl, quartzes, etc. Between all of these alternative products, we always recommend using good-quality products with high transpiration.
