Application Information
Instructions for use

Priming

Apply Vetotherm Ultra directly on concrete, cement plaster, and masonry. In very porous substrates, water should be sprayed onto the surface before the application.

Mixing

Ensure to use a mechanically powered mixer or heavy-duty drill fitted with a suitable paddle for proper mixing. Add 9 - 9.75 liters of clean water (for each 25 kg bags) to a clean container. Add the powder slowly to the water while mixing continuously with a low-speed mixer/ heavy-duty drill (400 - 600 rpm) fitted with a suitable mixing paddle.

Continue mixing for 3 minutes until obtaining a uniform consistency.

Application

As an Adhesive:
Apply the mortar in a strip around the insulation board with a few spots in the middle. In the case of a smooth or plastered substrate, a back buttering technique can be employed, and a notched trowel can be used to spread the mortar on the back of the insulation board.

As a Base Coat and Protective Layer:
Apply the mortar over the fixed thermal insulation panels. Using an aluminum roll, embed the precut reinforcing mesh onto the freshly applied mortar until its fully immersed in the Vetotherm Ultra layer.
Smoothen the surface with a long flat trowel. More than one Vetotherm Ultra layer can be applied, and where needed, double or triple reinforcement mesh can be used.

Note: Mesh strips have to be overlapped by approximately 10 cm.

Cleaning
Clean all tools immediately after finishing with water. Hardened materials can be cleaned mechanically.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be clean and free from oil, grease, or loose materials. The insulation board has to be firmly fixed using Vetotherm adhesives and anchors. Large gaps between insulation boards must be filled with insulation boards' strips to leave minimal gaps or filled with PU foam of similar U-Value to the insulation boards. All edges of the building need to be protected by PVC Vetotherm accessories unless otherwise specified.

Any skin contact should be wash with soap & water. In case of eye irritation, immediately wash with copious amount of clean cold water. Seek medical advice. Vetotherm Ultra is non-flammable.
