Thermal Design on Cement-Based Vitrified Microsphere Insulation Mortar Based on 65% Building Energy Efficiency Standard
With the 65% building energy efficiency standards being implemented, the existing external wall insulation technology will face severe challenges. The research and application of the high performance inorganic insulation materials are solicited, because the traditional organic insulation materials representative with polystyrene have some defects, such as poor fire resistance, poor durability, short service and no synchronous with the life of structure, and environmental pollution. After the big fires of the CCTV building in 2009 and the building under construction at Shanghai pudong south road NO.1 in 2010, October 8 in the morning being occurred, the new generation inorganic insulation materials represented by vitrified microsphere, are getting increasing attention. After the thermal simulation of external walls, roof, floor and windows being calculated, it is concluded that its energy-saving rate is far more than energy efficiency 50% standard, and which is close to energy efficiency 65% standard, even if taking only vitrified microsphere as the insulation mortar for outer walls of building.
