The solution for energy-saving building renovations
The number of old buildings requiring renovation is extremely high in Switzerland. Around two thirds of all existing buildings were built before 1970. Fixit 222 Aerogel High-Performance Insulating is ideal for use in renovating such structures, since due to its mineral basis it is closely related to historical building materials in terms of material properties and working techniques. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor renovation work.
Fixit 222 Aerogel High-Performance Insulating Plaster is primarily used for repairing and renovating building façades. The advantage of using this product is that because the applied layer is so thin the characteristics of the building remain unchanged. In addition, the mineral composition of the Aerogel insulating plaster prevents the growth of algae and hinders fungal attack.
In new buildings too, Fixit Aerogel rendering is applied as a highly insulating layer onto brickwork. Depending on the substrate material, a layer thickness of 3 to 5 cm is sufficient to achieve levels of insulation meeting the Swiss EnEV (Energy-Saving Regulations) standard.
The insulating plaster is applied by spraying directly onto the façade. However the product is not limited to outdoor applications, being very well-suited for indoor use too. Cutting sheets of insulation to clad the walls of irregularly shaped rooms, narrow spaces or angled corners such as staircases, archways and supporting walls is a painstaking process. The insulation of indoor walls using Aerogel products is a much faster and more efficient affair. Not only that, the plaster adheres directly to the masonry without leaving hollow spaces in which humidity can condense.
