Blue Angel | Mineral ETICS
… because the ETICS with Blue Angel offer reliability.
- healthy to live with due to its open diffusion build-up
- with Blue Angel awarded
We insulate. In a natural way.
Healthy insulation means choosing mineral insulation systems made from natural components and with an environmentally friendly surface finish. The fact that Saint-Gobain Weber is at the forefront here is proven by numerous awards for our health- and environment-friendly ETICS, including the Blue Angel and the Climate and Environment Innovation Prize awarded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment.
Valuable solutions for new construction and refurbishment
The non-combustible ETICS
In principle, mineral systems are preferable for insulation from an environment and safety point of view. Fully-mineral external thermal insulation composite systems, such as weber.therm A 100, whose components like bonding and reinforcing mortar, insulation board and overlay render (top coat) consist of natural raw materials, like feldspar, dolomite and sand, are ideal. All-mineral ETICS are non-combustible and thus offer the highest level of fire protection. The mineral structure also ensures balanced moisture management and thus a healthy living climate due to its diffusion openness with water vapour.
No environmental toxins on the facade
But other aspects must also be taken into account for an assessment of environment and health compatibility, for ex. whether the overlay renders (top coats) contain biocides that are hazardous to health, such as terbutryn and diuron as algaecides. Weber's AquaBalance renders (top coats) protect against algae and fungi growth on the facade through a natural active principle - without biocides that can be washed out. Weber’s mineral ETICS, such as weber.therm A 100 and A 200 in combination with an AquaBalance facade render guarantee all-round healthy, environment-friendly and safe facade insulation. weber.therm A 100 and A 200 were the first ETICS to be awarded the well-known "Blue Angel" environmental seal. The label applies to complete systems with an insulation thickness ≥ 140 mm. In addition, the AquaBalance facade renders were awarded the Federal Ecodesign Award 2012 and the Innovation Award Climate and Environment IKU 2013. The IKU is awarded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment and the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
