Sistema CAPA THERM
The Sistema CAPA THERM is intended to be used as external thermal insulation for building walls. The walls are made of masonry (bricks, blocks, etc.), or concrete (cast on site or as prefabricated panels) with a reaction to fire classification A1 to A2-s2,d0 according to EN 13501-1 or A1 according to the EC decision 96/603/EC as amended. The system is designed to give the wall to which is applied satisfactory thermal insulation.
This system is made of non load-bearing construction elements. It does not contribute directly to the stability of the wall on which is installed, but it can contribute its durability by providing enhanced protection from the effect of weathering. The minimum thermal resistance of the system shall be 1.0 m2K/W.
This system can be used on new or existing (retrofit) vertical walls. It can also be used on horizontal or inclined surfaces which are not exposed to precipitation. The system is not intended to ensure the airtightness of the building structure.
In the design and installation of this system should take into account principles laid down in chapter 7 of ETAG 004 and shall be done in accordance with national instructions. This ETA covers application of bonded system where the concrete for testing of bond strength is representative for masonry or concrete. For bonded applications onto other substrates (e.g. organic paints or ceramic tiles), testing on the job site is necessary.
