What is Sheathing?

All kinds of coating process made from the exterior for the purpose of thermal insulation of buildings is called sheathing. It is thought that the exterior cladding made with only foam plates or rock wool plates is sheathing among the people. Contrary to popular belief, exterior cladding with natural thermal plaster, which can be used instead of these plates, is also a sheathing.

Sheathing materials should be compatible with the texture of the building material and human health. Thermoplastic petroleum-derived foam boards are not compatible with the texture of building materials. Therefore, their lifespan is short, and these materials are harmful to human health because they do not breathe and are flammable. In the plate sheathing system, the plates are attached to the surface by drilling holes with approximately 8-10 dowels, these holes will damage your building.

In addition, since heat leaks occur from these holes and the joints between the plates, the thermal insulation performance is seriously affected.

In the plastered jacketing system, the thermal plaster adheres to the surface, so there is no need for holes and dowels, there is no need for any joints, and it covers the surface to be thermally insulated as a whole, so heat leaks do not occur and thermal insulation performance is very high.

The composition of the Natural Thermal plaster consists of fully expanded and fired natural minerals. Therefore, it is compatible with the texture of construction materials and is long-lasting. There is no petroleum-derived chemical carcinogenic raw material in its composition. Thermal plaster breathes thanks to its porous structure, does not form rotten bacteria, and also does not burn or ignite in any way, so Thermal plasters are always the most successful products for human health and safety.

Materials that are not dimensionally stable change shape over time, materials that melt, rot, shrink, hang and change shape over time due to exterior conditions lose their thermal insulation function and cause visual disturbances on the exterior of the building. Natural thermal plaster produced from natural materials has dimensional stability, from the moment it is made, its shapes remain the same for a lifetime without melting or rotting. This ensures that the thermal insulation performance lasts a lifetime from the moment it is made. Sustainability is very important in thermal insulation. Sheathing materials produced with natural raw materials provide thermal insulation without decomposition for a lifetime.

While additional plaster is required under the plates in plate systems such as EPS, rock wool, sheathing process can be done in thermal plaster without the need for additional plaster or glaze plaster. This saves labor and cost. In this respect, SIVATERM thermal insulation plaster is economical.

While 15-16kg weight is gained per square meter in plate sheathing systems, 7-8kg weight is gained per square meter in thermal plaster, thus the earthquake resistance of buildings is better preserved than plated systems. Since no additional materials such as holes, dowels and screws are used in thermal plaster, the foundations and columns of the buildings are not damaged.

Another advantage of thermal plaster over other systems is that it prevents moisture, humidity, mold and bacteria formation on the surfaces it is applied to, as it is a breathing material. It prevents the spread of diseases in public places.

Minerals in thermal plaster have the feature of absorbing radioactive waves. Radioactive waves have negative effects on people's health. All electronic devices such as televisions, radios and refrigerators in our homes emit radioactive radiation. These radiations are absorbed and damped by the elements in the heat insulation plaster, if they are not absorbed and extinguished, these radiations are reflected back to people, which causes various nervous system disorders. SIVATERM thermal insulation plaster prevents this situation thanks to its radioactive absorbing feature.
