External wall insulation (EWI) system for buildings with increased impact resistance with silicone and acrylic external render
and attractive decorative effects

The KABE THERM ELASTO is an EPS-based system of external wall thermal insulation for buildings with high resistance to mechanical damage (impact resistance). It is applied in single- and multi-family housing construction industry, public utility and industrial buildings – in both the existing and new constructions – to the height of up to 25 m (for the buildings erected before 1 April 1995 to the height of eleventh story, inclusive). Especially recommended in places requiring increased impact resistance and attractive decorative eff ects. The system can be used on walls made of masonry components (bricks, blocks, stone, etc.) or concrete (poured on site or in the form of prefabricated slabs). It is also possible to use it on horizontal or inclined surfaces, that are not exposed to precipitation. The external system layer can be made using ARMASIL T structural silicone render or PERMURO, PERMURO AVANT acrylic renders, available in a wide range of colours and textures. In addition, in this system, it’s possible to perform decorative effects of brick and architectural concrete.

• Reduction of building heating costs
• Improved microclimate inside the building
• Increased impact resistance (class I)
• Attractive decorative eff ects and high aesthetics of the façade
• Wall protection against adverse weather conditions
• Protection against the growth of algae and fungi
• Optional use of façade paints available in a wide range of colours
