Adhesives for sustainable development

An adhesive enables the optimum long-term bonding of insulation panels as part of ETICS and thus contributes to energy saving and a reduced need for maintenance in buildings

  • Saving fossil resources and reducing GHG emissions are main drivers of sustainable development. Heating causes 14% of GHG emissions in the EU. 75% of the heat inside a building escapes through the exterior walls. Efficient insulation can reduce energy losses/costs by 60%.
  • The multi-component insulation system, ETICS, requires a durable bond of the insulation panel to the plaster: adhesives can bear the stresses caused by the thermal deformation of the panel better than mechanical anchors.
  • The high quality adhesive designed to resist the shear and peel stresses guarantees the long-term performance of the bond.
