Development and Study of the Possibilities to Use Natural Materials for Thermal-Insulation Systems of ETICS

Abstract:

Article Preview

Thermal insulation systems of ETICS are now mostly solved in the building industry, whether in terms of insulating the structures, choices of materials and subsequent recycling after the end of their life period. From the environmental point of view and also in the perspective of sustainable development, it is essential to look for other suitable material bases which relate only to easily renewable sources of raw materials or to industrial wastes which have long been available in sufficient quantity and quality. It is important that production of the insulation systems is energetically efficient modest in terms of manufacturing facilities. The aim of this paper is to verify the possibility of using natural insulation materials for thermal insulation systems ETICS. This paper describes the results of studies of key properties of insulations based on industrial hemp and flax and the results of computational simulations of the behavior of these insulations incorporated in the real systems ETICS.
