Technical Information
Product Description

Vetotherm Plaster is a blend of OPC, silica sand, and graded lightweight aggregates plus functional additives for enhancing Workability and adhesion. It can be applied on all surfaces after the proper preparation of the surface. The product provides thermal insulation for building wall sections relying on advanced material technologies.

Advantages
  • Excellent thermal insulation properties.
  • Fast mixing application using a spray machine.
  • It contains a special additive that reduces friction and prolongs the lifespan of the equipment.
  • Factory-controlled pre-blend ensures consistently high quality.
  • Requires only the addition of water on-site at the time of usage.
  • Uniform color/mass.
  • Improved workability & curing.
  • Strong adhesion on a variety of substrates.
  • Shrinkage control reduces surface cracks.
  • Suitable for humid & dry conditions.
COMPLIANCE STANDARD
  • BS:EN 998-1 CSIII, W1, T1

  • Cement type: ASTM C150, type1.

  • ASTM C518

Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

For manual application, add to the mixing container 6.6 - 7.4 liters of water for each 20 Kg bag of Vetotherm Plaster or 33 - 37% of the machine application weight. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical plaster mixer or low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency.

Manual mixing is allowed for small batch quantities. Mix for approximately 1-2 minutes until achieving a homogeneous mix.

Application

Apply Vetotherm Plaster in a single or two coats on rough or smooth surfaces by manual or machine application to achieve the desired thickness of 25-100 mm.

Apply the mixed material using a spray machine or hawk & trowel technique. Rod or screed to uniform thickness, not exceeding 25 mm for a single coat or 25 mm for each coat for multiple layers. Pres the first layer hard against the surface.

For the second layer, allow the first layer to set (60-120min depending on weather) partially. Apply the second layer as described above.

Water spray the surface if the second layer is carried out the next day.

Curing

The best way to cure Vetotherm Plaster is by spraying water evenly on the applied material surfaces every 12 hrs for a minimum of 3 days. During hot & dry conditions, allow curing for a minimum of 5 days; It will help to obtain high mechanical strengths.

Cleaning

Clean all tools immediately after finishing with water. Clean hardened materials mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The substrate should be sound, clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.

Before Vetotherm Plaster, wet the entire surface with clean potable water; the surface should look damp at the time of the Vetotherm Plaster application.

Limitation
  • Do not mix with any additives or products unless recommended by Saveto.
  • Make sure the substrate is suitable for plaster application. In case of doubt, try on a sample area to assess its suitability.
  • Do not apply the product at a temperature less than +5ºC. During the summer season, cover the working area to prevent ill-effects from direct sun and excessive air-draught during the initial curing stage.
Additional Information
Health & Sefety

Vetotherm Plaster is highly alkaline; therefore, avoid direct contact with eyes or skin. It is recommended to use protective gloves and goggles during application. Any skin contact should be wash with soap & water. In case of eye irritation, immediately wash with a copious amount of cold water. Seek medical advice.
