External thermal insulation is the most effective method of reducing structural thermal bridges and protecting the wall. This solution is called "thermosystem" or ETICS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System)
To increase the energy performance of buildings, Saint-Gobain offers the ISOVER FASSADE solution to the Romanian market, a thermal system (ETICS) based on mineral wool.
ISOVER FASSADE have couple of unique properties that recommend it for installation on the facade of buildings: excellent thermal insulation (λ=0.035 W/(mk)); high permeability to water vapor; very good sound absorption - improves the sound insulation of the wall against the noise from the outside environment; non-combustible material; it contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the reduction of heating expenses and to the increase of the energy efficiency of the building.
Actual EPD describes the environmental impacts of 1 m² of mineral wool with a thermal resistance of 2.85 K.m2 .W-1 of ISOVER FASSADE (former name ISOVER FASSADE 100 refers to 100mm). Commercial thicknesses between 50 mm and 250 mm, can be calculated according to table in additional information chapter “influence of particular thickness".
