Lime base coat render for wood fibre insulation – UdiFOUNDATION COAT

Product Data Sheet UdiGRUNDSPACHTEL

A factory dried mortar as per DIN 18557 and DIN EN 998-1. A mineral adhesive-, filler- and reinforcing mortar for UdiUNGER-DIFFUTHERM wood-fibre thermal insulation composite systems. It has been optimised to provide superior bonding, moisture storage capacity and stability properties. Suitable for manual and machine mixing/ working.

Designed for use as a filler, reinforcement and adhesive mortar for UdiUNGER-DIFFUTHERM wood- fibre insulation boards. This product is part of the UdiFRONT, UdiSPEED, UdiRECO, UdiCLIMATE and UdiIN thermal insulation composite systems. Its components are sand, cement, white lime and additives to improve the working and bonding characteristics.

– Binding agents as per DIN 1164 – Quartz sand 0 – 0.4 mm as per DIN 4226 – Mortar additives – Alkali-resistant fibres

A very efficient, high-performance mineral adhesive-, filler- and reinforcing mortar which provides optimal bonding to wood-fibre insulation boards and other substrates. Easy to mix and apply. When dry it is highly vapour-permeable, water-repellent and weather and frost resistant. The ideal base for all UNGER- DIFFUTHERM Udi Fine Quality Renders. Its uniform composition makes it easy to smooth or structure which also means it is suitable for use as a finishing render for smaller areas e.g. window surrounds/reveals.
