Cement based polymer modified base coat render for ETICS

webertherm base is a pre-bagged dry blend of cement, aggregates, polymer, and additives. It provides an excellent reinforcing coat for embedding glass fiber mesh in facade insulation system (ETICS). It is elastic, crack-proof and resistant to mechanical stress. webertherm base has an outstanding bonding effect and is water resistant.

Instructions for use

Surface preparation

Surface must be clean and free from greasy matters or dust.

Product application

Use a stainless notched trowel to apply the mortar to the surface of the EPS insulation board to a uniform thickness of appr. 2 to 3 mm; immediately, lay in the meshcloth. Once the initial coat has started to ‘take-up’, apply a second layer of adhesive mortar to produce a sandwich approximately 6 mm thick totally encapsulating the meshcloth. The meshcloth must lie within the outer one-third of the webertherm base. At joints, individual meshes should overlap each other by 10 to 15 cm. At corners special reinforcing corner angle glass fiber mesh is used.
In order to protect against the formation of cracks, in areas where larger local stresses are to be expected, i.e. in the vicinity of the corners of door, window and other openings, strips of mesh (app.20 x 40 cm) should be placed diagonally across the corners.In case a thick mineral finish is required, lightly comb scratch the webertherm base to achieve a good mechanical key.

Clean up

Clean the tools with water after use. Cured materials can only be removed mechanically.

Environmental and Safety

Safety precautions

The product contains cement powders which, when mixed with water, release alkalis that could be harmful to the skin. It is preferable that the application be done in a ventilated area, and to wear protective gear for hands, eyes and respiratory system and to avoid breathing of the dust. Splashes on the skin should be washed away by cleaning with soap and water. In case of contact with eyes, wash thoroughly with clean water. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting; in both cases seek medical attention. The product is non-flammable.
