“The perfect material for the plinth area on any EWI project, even if it is to be submerged in water” – Chris Brookman

 

Product overview.

Where are they used?

  • At plinth level (300mm or less above ground level) and below on any External Wall Insulation project.
  • Around large stone window sills or other projections that are likely to give high levels of splash back.
  • Below ground on foundation walls or basement walls.

How much will you need?

  • The Styrodur boards are 1250 x 600mm and they cover an area of 0.75 m² per board. Allow around 5% for wastage, depending on the complexity of the area to be insulated.

 

How are they used?

  • Styrodur boards can be installed directly in to the aluminium plinth starter tray if being used on the base of a timber frame. Ensure the joint with the wood fibre boards is glued thoroughly to prevent cracking along this joint.
  • On masonry plinth, Styrodur 2800C should be at least adhesively fixed to the plinth by applying a 5mm layer of the appropriate contact mortar to the back of the board before pressing firmly against the clean masonry surface.
  • In plinth areas where impact is likely, masonry fixings such as UdiASSEMBLY masonry fixings, should be used in addition to the adhesive above.
Technical Details

What is their Thermal Conductivity

  • The exact conductivity varies across the different thicknesses of the boards but as a general guide it can be assumed to be 0.035 W/m2K. However, for more accurate information please see the data sheet.
