Thermal Insulation Technology
External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems ( ETICS) are suitable for
both new and old buildings, and improve their energy balance in the long term. I myself have often used
ETICS for thermal insulation for buildings . A comprehensive range is available to meet the various demands of building
structure and architecture. ETICS are a kit in the sense of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR)
consisting of certain (specified) prefabricated components being applied directly to the façade onsite.
Which configuration of system components is required for specific projects depends on the system holder’s
installation manuals and govermental regulation. The quality and durability of ETICS depends on the careful
choice of system components. This composition is done by system holders. They take care that components
perfectly fit together. Each system placed on and sold in the market by the system holder and is throughly
tested regarding its essential characteristics.
