External wall insulation system with
silicone, polysilicate, acrylic and mineral external render and renders for spray application of the AKORD line.

KABE THERM EPS EWI system is a system of insulating external walls of buildings based on EPS*. It is applied in single- and multi-family housing construction industry, public utility and industrial buildings, to the
height of up to 25 m (for the buildings erected before 1 April 1995 to the height of eleventh story inclusively) and in frame construction. Because of its simple installation technology and low implementation costs it is
most frequently used for the thermal upgrade of buildings constructed in old energy-consuming technologies (non-compliant with applicable thermal insulation requirements). The system can be applied on walls made of
masonry elements (such as e.g.: bricks, blocks, stone etc.) or from concrete (poured on site or in the form of prefabricated panels). The system can be used on new walls as well as for renovation of the existing ones. It is also
possible to use it on horizontal or inclined surfaces which ensure proper drainage of rainwater and snow without causing their retention. The external system layer can be made by using ARMASIL T, ARMASIL T AKORD, ARMASIL T – DECOR SMOOTH TEXTURE, ARMASIL T – DECOR BRICK silicate renders, NOVALIT T, NOVALIT T AKORD, NOVALIT T – DECOR BRICK polysilicate renders, PERMURO, PERMURO AKORD, PERMURO AVANT acrylic renders and MINERALIT T and MINERALIT T AKORD mineral renders available in a wide range of colours and textures and in the wood/board effect. After wetting the silicone ARMASIL T render, the effect of water molecules ‘being repelled’ by silicone resin is observed on its surface. It means that water absorption is greatly reduced and the facade is protected against dirt/dust due to its self-cleaning properties.

• Reduction of heating costs
• Interior micro-climate improvement
• Protection of walls against the impact of adverse atmospheric conditions
• Anti-fungal and algae protection
• A wide range of types, colours and decorative effects of renders
• Possibility to use renders for spray application of the AKORD line
