How to insulate your home with PAULIN KOIBENTA

PAULIN KOIBENTA: Unique System for Many Benefits

Technical Paulinkoibenta is a system consisting of elements tested and certified by authorized bodies at European level that have issued the ETA certificate of conformity

Practical Paulinkoibenta is able to isolate buildings by eliminating the problem of thermal bridges in a definitive way. This preserves the wall structures from the stresses of thermal shocks. Moreover, it has a low degree of hygroscopicity and a high water-repellent power, so as to guarantee the building a continuous defense against humidity, often responsible for considerable damage

Economical Paulinkoibenta manages to perfectly insulate a building, reducing the thickness of the walls. This involves the recovery of about 8% of useful floor area and a consequent increase in the value of the building

Saving Paulinkoibenta guarantees a considerable reduction in fuel consumption, from 30% to 50%. This means that within a few years it is possible to amortize the investment made, upgrading the commercial value of the building

Tax Paulinkoibenta allows you to benefit from the incentives provided for by the law, we recommend f all the agencies in charge of obtaining information regarding the methods necessary to take advantage of this incentive.

Duration Paulinkoibenta has such constructive characteristics that allow it to considerably reduce maintenance operations. Thermal insulation and the reduction of thermal bridges allow a significant increase in the durability of materials. Its natural elasticity allows it to follow the expansions due to thermal excursion, without creating cracks or other deterioration.

Environmental Paulinkoibenta natural sensitive cracks that duration the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, to give a sustainable solution to energy needs, without dispersing pollutants.

Comfort Paulinkoibenta gives the possibility of living in an ideal climate environment, balancing the relationship between humidity and internal temperature. In summer, the system protects the masonry from solar radiation, in winter it prevents the escape of heat. In addition, it ensures optimal hygienic conditions for the home, thanks to the excellent coefficient of breathability

Superiority Paulinkoibenta gives a pleasant, homogeneous regular appearance to buildings, increasing their economic value. Not only that, installation is easy on any type of building, without any inconvenience for tenants.

  • Apply the materials for the COAT in the right way

    The correct execution and management of the intervention implies an accurate design of the system that takes into account the environmental aspects, the type of support, the optimal resolution of construction nodes and the regulations in force on the subject of energy efficiency. The different solutions offered by the Paulinkoibenta line of Colorificio Paulin respond to the increased technical and aesthetic requirements of the construction market (in compliance with the regulations in force), reduce heat loss, creating greater living comfort, and a significant reduction in heating and cooling costs for buildings and at the same time decreasing emissions in the atmosphere of harmful substances. Paulinkoibenta can be used both in new buildings and in the case of thermal reclamation of existing buildings (without brick coverings, stone materials, ceramics, etc.), on supports made of exposed brick walls, plastered walls, concrete walls, prefabricated elements. In the event that they are plastered or covered with exposed brick, ceramic or stone material, paint, etc., it is necessary to verify their perfect adhesion by eliminating, if necessary, the damaged areas.

  • How to prepare the support fund

    Preparation of the substrate The surfaces involved must be clean of dust, or grease, and of degraded or detached parts. Eliminate mold and efflorescence. È water jet cleaning recommended Verify planarità of the support and eventually remove the protrusions greater than 1 cm. In the case of small or dusty funds, è It is advisable to apply a coat of ISOMUR type solvent based fixative or acrylic primer all water type FIXACRIL and nail it. In the case of departure from the decking plan, establish the quota " ZERO" starting point at least cm above this level and mechanically fix the STARTING PROFILE with a perforated aluminum drip with a section suitable for the thickness of the slabs. In thermal insulation insulation systems involving the use of cork and / or mineral wool insulation panels, insert a 40-60 cm high sintered expanded polystyrene panel with the same thickness as the insulation slab at the base for the plinth will subsequently affix.

  • Glue the insulated panels

    In relation to the system requirements and the material of the insulating panels, Colorificio Paulin diversifies the materials for bonding. The fixing of the insulating panels in sintered expanded polystyrene (EPS), sintered expanded polystyrene with graphite additives and Stiferite Classe SK, will be done using the smoothing glues type: LAMPO KAPPA R631 gray powder-based leveling glue with a fine finish LAMPOKAPPA P6A Gray powder-based glue-finish LAMPOKAPPA ALLEGGERATO light-weight white powder-based leveling glue with a medium rustic finish LAMPOKAPPA P6A B glue medium-grain white powder LAMPOKAPPAG-glue-skim coat in white coarse-grained powder ELASTOCAPP glue in an organic fiber-filled paste NB: a contact surface of over 30% is required for spot-bonding. The fixing of the insulating panels in cork and mineral wool foresees the use of: RASAKOLL MINERAL mineral plaster glue in powder Regardless of the type of adhesive that will be used, it will be necessary to check in advance that the panels to be glued do not have a skin surface ") that obstructs it support adherence

    On masonry and in any case on non-planar supports that present irregularities (which in any case must not exceed a centimeter in height), the gluing of the panels always occurs in points, applying the strip mortar along the edges always in points in the center of the panel. In the case of cork and / or mineral wool slabs, an upper contact surface of 40% is required. On very regular substrates, gluing can be done with a toothed steel spatula over the entire surface of the panel. panels must be placed on the surface for horizontal strips, starting from the bottom upwards and with the vertical joints staggered (in order to avoid overlapping and continuity of joints), checking that there is no trace of adhesive on the heads of the slabs to avoid creating possible thermal bridges. In correspondence with the edges, the slabs must be laid in an alternating way (biting between panels) in order to guarantee the absorption of tensions. With the aim of maximizing the substrate-adhesive / panel contact surface, it will be appropriate immediately after laying, exert a slight pressure on it by trowel and control (frequently) by leveling the surface. Mineral wool panels must be laid one to the other with a maximum planarity offset of mm and protected before shaving from contact with water.

  • How to nail

    The need to nail the systems depends on the substrate, on the type of insulating panel, on the height of the building and on the weight of the system. The nailing is recommended for a building height greater than 25 meters, for a system weight of more than 30 kg / m2, for masonry; plastered and / or for the use of materials such as cork and mineral wool that do not guarantee, due to specific and intrinsic characteristics, sufficient limits of stabilityà with only gluing. The additional mechanical fixing of the insulating panels is used both to absorb the horizontal forces of the wind and to ensure a lasting adhesion to the support. In the case of old buildings or concrete, the graphite support; to alter or deform, thus canceling the effect of the adhesive The anchors, once the compatibilityà has been ascertained; and the correspondence to the intended use category, must penetrate through the insulating material into the load-bearing support and must therefore be fitted with a special European technical approval for this type of use, such as our percussion plug with core in steel (approved for all construction materials) with CE marking.
