Development of Innovative Composite Cool – Thermal Insulating Materials
Project website: www.dicom.com.gr
Program Type: CIP-EIP-Eco-Innovation-2010
Project details: Aim of the proposed CCTIM project is the design, development, production, evaluation, certification and introduction to the market of innovative, composite cool – thermal insulating materials based on the new generation of extruded polystyrene (XPS) with improved vapour permeability (lower water vapour diffusion resistance factor μ) as well as with use of special plasters as a final coating with specific features of low emissivity coefficient ε.
The products will be shaped in a way that makes them easily and effectively applicable for the energy upgrade of existing buildings, but will also correspond to the construction techniques of new state of the art buildings.
These materials can be used for the thermal insulation of horizontal and inclined roofs according to the EN standards for individual materials and composite insulation solutions, but also for the cladding of vertical structural elements of brick wall and concrete, in the logic of External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) according to ETAG 004.
