Thermal Insulation with Plaster

Thermal insulation plasters, sheathing and insulation applications continue to increase day by day. In other words, insulation plasters are becoming more and more preferred products and their name is announced to more users. The fact that the users state that they are very satisfied with the thermal insulation plaster also increases the reliability of these materials.

On the other hand, despite the increasing usage rate and positive feedback, there are those who look at thermal insulation plasters with a question mark. Although these people accept the ease of application of sheathing with plaster, they are skeptical of its performance in thermal insulation. When they look at conventional boards, the idea that it can only be insulated with plaster seems distant to them.

In fact, since the subject is a technical subject, it is very easy to explain and prove it scientifically. There is a value called "Lamda Value", which shows the thermal insulation performance of objects. This value expressed in w/mK; It tells us how much heat insulation plaster, sheet or any object can do. As it can be understood from the unit expression, this value, which is obtained by dividing the amount of energy held by the meter, that is, the length, shows us that the thickness of the material is directly related to the subject. So, in summary, we can say that; Two objects with the same lambda value make the same thermal insulation when they are of the same thickness. Things like hardness, softness etc. will not affect this calculation at all. Again, based on these values, we can calculate the following. Suppose we have a 4 cm thick plate with x lambda value. We can calculate how thick the thermal insulation plaster should be in order to insulate the same with a plaster of lamda value.

To explain even more clearly; It is something that can be revealed with technical values ​​whether a material can insulate or how much insulation it can make. Therefore, the thermal insulation of any material is a scientifically specified and measurable value. The subject has nothing to do with the structure, color, hardness, etc. of the material.

Let's get to the answer to our question. When we look at the lambda values, we can clearly say that thermal insulation plasters insulate. We can prove this statement as well. When we evaluate it with boards in terms of performance, we can see that there are thermal insulation plasters with far superior lambda values ​​than boards. Moreover, if we take into account that the performance of insulated plasters does not melt or rot like boards, we can say that these materials are extra superior in the long run.
