External Thermal Insulation with the use of polystyrene panels



External House Insulation system consists of the following materials:

A brick wall, reinforced concrete or existing plaster can serve as a sub-base.

This  insulating system is the variant of the ''lightweight'' method of insulating exterior walls of buildings. It is covered by the instruction no.334/96 issued by the Institute of Construction Technology. This method consists of fixing a 'faced system' to the external side walls, where the insulation layer is made of foamed polystyrene panels, and the finish layer is composed of thin decorative plaster with the substrate reinforced with the help of glass fibre fabric.

External insulation with the use of mineral wool



Thermal insulation system consists of the following materials:

This method consists of fixing a 'faced system' to the external side walls, where the insulation layer is made of mineral wool panels, and the finish layer is composed of thin decorative plaster with the substrate reinforced with the help of glass fibre fabric. This system is classified as totally non-flammable. It also ensures very good acoustic insulation of the exterior wall and good permeability to water vapour, which provides a healthy and pleasant micro climate in residential apartments.

Comparing the two types of Thermal insulation systems. We can not say that one is better than the other. Each of them has advantages and disadvantages.

 

Advantages of polystyrene foam:

Polystyrene is easier to mount, and it covers a surface more evenly. Mineral Wool is heavier, softer and when plastered it is possible to get 'wave' effect . Insulating using polystyrene foam does not mean that ventilation will be disturbed in the building. Mouldy and fungous walls might be caused by inadequate ventilation and sealed windows. Mineral wool is certainly more vapour permeable.
Polystyrene is easier to work than wool. Buildings insulated with polystyrene foam can be finish virtually in every kind of trip plaster/elevation. Choosing wool as thermal insulator, we must consider higher investment cost, mainly due to stronger glues,which are usually more expensive.
