Vetotherm AFA , Vetotherm ACP, Vetotherm ABP, & Vetotherm AWP
Vetotherm AFA (Facade Anchors)
A facade anchor (dowel) with plastic nail for additional mechanical strengthening of the thermal insulation system with slabs of EPS and XPS.
Vetotherm ACP( Corner Profile with Mesh)
Angular plastic profile with integrated alkali-resistant mesh is used to more easily and properly forming 90-degree angles and for reinforcing all window or door corners, edges and jambs in the contact insulation system – ETICS.
Vetotherm ABP (Base Profile LU)
Base profile without a drip ledge is used for ending/closing up insulating material at its sides or for closing the system in its top part. This profile cannot be used in situations where the rainwater drain- age from the system must be ensured.
Vetotherm AWP (Window Reveal Profile)
Window reveal profile with fibre glass reinforcement mesh for flexible junction of the window or door frame with plaster/ render in the contact insulation system – ETICS.
ETAG 004 requirements for ETICS / EIFS systems.
Start anchoring Vetotherm EPS boards minimum 48 hours after sticking the boards in order to allow the adhesive to dry completely. Vetotherm AFA (anchors) should be mounted according to a diagram depending on the height of the building, the region and the strength of the wind (refer to Saveto ETICS guide).
If Vetotherm EPS have a thickness exceeding 8 cm, you need to make previously a hole of 2 cm depth with a cutter and then, in this hole, to drill an opening for the screw anchor. After the mounting of the dowels, the hole should be filled with a polystyrene cap.
After the completion of the anchoring, cover the heads of the dowels with Saveto Vetotherm Flex to flush with the level of the boards.
Reinforcement of the loaded areas
Apply ready to use angle Vetotherm ACP (Corner Profile) to reinforce external angles, and apply Vetotherm ABP(Base Profile) to close up insulating material at its sides or to close the system in its top part . Apply Saveto Vetothem Flex along the edge, place the profile and press it tightly.
Corners around doors and windows should be strengthened by applying adhesive on the base, then place on the adhesive pieces of fibreglass mesh with minimum dimensions of 20х50 cm. Apply more adhesive to cover the mesh completely.
Before continuing to reinforce the entire surface, wait 24 hours to allow these areas to dry.
