Roughcast mortar with adhesive agent
Technical data sheet
Safety data sheet
Machine compatible for economic renovations
Secure application due to adhesion promoter
Can be used as substrate for several base coats
The rough cast cement mortar with adhesion promoter is a component of the Fixit renovating plaster system. It improves adhesion to the following plaster layer.
Fixit 211 serves as a primer for a range of base coats. Application is very economical as the product is machine-compatible.
The old mill, which was converted to a multiple family dwelling, was one of the first historically important buildings to undergo energy-efficient renovation using Fixit 222, a worldwide first. Subsequently Fixit 203 Finish Coat with hydraulic lime was applied to the façade of the protected building to faithfully reproduce the original plasterwork.
Rubble masonry building
The façade of this multi-family residential building was renovated using Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster, among other materials. A 4 cm layer was applied over 1,200 m².
Since the historic building is covered by a preservation order, it was not possible to use mineral-wool insulation on its outdoor surfaces. The owners wished to retain the original character of the building, for which reason they decided that Fixit 222 High Performance Insulating Render should be used, also because the walls were bowed and not vertical. Internal renovation was carried out with a layer thickness of 30 – 80 mm of Fixit 222 Aerogel flexible high performance insulating plaster over quarry stone walls.
The late Gothic building presumably served as a chaplaincy for the foundation of the Bullingerpfründe in 1460 and became a helper's house after its re-catholicisation in 1531. The approximately 500-year-old property, which is now a historic monument, has been renovated time and again over the course of its use, most recently 60 years ago completely and in 1990 with a gentle interior and exterior renovation.
Energy-efficient renovation of 48 apartments in 8 residential buildings. Some 2'800 m² of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster and 600 m² AeroCalce non-woven fabric matting were applied, the former directly onto the existing plaster substrate. This technique was economic despite the higher material outlay because it allowed the entire renovation to be completed in one step rather than two, as initially envisaged. On completion the façades appear practically unchanged, whilst the energy consumption has been halved.
To accomplish this indoor thermal improvement work we first removed the internal plasterwork and then subsequently applied a 30 mm thick layer of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster.
Base and finish coats removed. Rough cast mortar Fixit 211, Fixit 222 30 mm thick, mineral undercoat stabilizer Fixit 493, mesh embedding with Fixit 223. Undercoat with Fixit 471 Plaster base Premium then Fixit 732 APS Silicate plaster first 1.5mm then 0.5mm slurry. Fixit 784 silicate paint.
The façade of the building, containing both residential and business premises was renovated. The old render was completely removed, following which a 4 cm layer of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster was applied.
The 4-unit multiple-family dwelling was completely renovated, both internally and externally. The energy-efficient façade restoration was carried out using a 4 - 5 cm thick layer of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Thermally Insulating Plaster. The special character of the façade, with its striking window surrounds, has been preserved.
The ABZ cooperative apartment buildings on Hochstrasse in Zurich Fluntern, built by Otto Streicher in 1926, were last extensively renovated in the mid-1970s. The aim was to preserve the external appearance and the internal spatial structure in their essence. Therefore, it was decided to apply an aerogel high-performance insulation plaster Fixit 222 to the façades, while retaining the existing jambs. Foto: Markus Frietsch
To achieve this thermal optimization, we first of all removed the plaster on the indoor walls then applied a 30mm layer of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster.
Improving the energy efficiency of the entire building. Renewal of approx. 100 m2 of indoor plasterwork over 3 floors, layer thickness 3-4 cm of Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster.
Building with stone/block support Street facade application of insulating plaster Fixit 222 in 50 mm thickness.
All of the old plaster was stripped down to the brick and rebuilt with the airgel insulation system. The facade renovation was carried out with 4 cm Fixit 222 Airgel high-performance insulation plaster system and the mineral finishing plaster Fixit 777 2.0mm pos., was painted twice with the colored mineral paint Fixit 785 evo to the color Fixit 59018.
The old base and finish layers were chiseled off and then replaced with Fixit 211, Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster, Fixit 497, Fixit 223, Fixit 475, Fixit 777 and a paint coat. Wall base areas sealed with Fixit 373 Multiflex.
First the old base layer was chiseled off, then the surface renovated with Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster.
This building is the first energy-saving Minergie certified house in Switzerland to be renovated using Aerogel High Performance Insulating Render. In order to leave the appearance of the window rebates unchanged the old render was completed stripped away and the underlying façade made dust-free in preparation for a new render coating.
Renovation of a single-family dwelling. Base and finish coats removed. Reconstruction with Fixit 211 rough cast mortar, Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster 40mm, Fixit 493 Mineral-based undercoat stabilizer, mesh embedding in Fixit 223, undercoat Fixit 730 silicate plaster 3-4 mm.
Renovation of external façade: existing base and finish coats removed. Reconstruction with Fixit 211 rough cast mortar, Fixit 222 Aerogel High Performance Insulating Plaster, mesh embedding in Fixit 223, Fixit 493 Mineral-based undercoat stabilizer, finish coat Fixit 763 white lime masonry mortar with Fixit 497 mortar emulsion.
The old façade base coat was removed down to the quarry-stone wall, then completely rebuilt as follows (including allowing for appropriate drying times): Fixit 493 Mineral-based Undercoat Stabilizer was first sprayed onto the quarry-stone wall, then a 6 – 8 cm thick layer of Fixit 222 High Performance Insulating Render applied with reinforcing mesh, attached with Fixit 223 Special Embedding Mortar, embedded over the whole surface. Fixit 475 Primer for Mineral-Based Final Rendering was applied as an undercoat over the entire façade. The large white areas were covered twice with 0.5mm coats of Fixit 777 Fine Extra White Render. The smaller grey areas were covered with a mixture of Fixit 205 (base coat with hydraulic lime) and 208 (basic mixture for restauration work) to create a Tyrolean render. This was applied with a hand-operated plaster spreader/flicker. Finally the façade was given two coats of mineral-based paint.
Façade refurbishment: For the purpose of energy-efficiency refurbishment, the old base plaster and top plaster were stripped off and an airgel high-performance insulating plaster Fixit 222 was applied. A silicate-silicone plaster Fixit 740 Si with a grain thickness of 2.0 mm was used as the finishing plaster.
The Fixit renovation technique, including the use of a 30mm thick plaster layer of Fixit 222 Insulating Plaster, created a novel room climate based on its water-vapour permeability. The combined layers of the plaster system absorb excess humidity from the air and return it in a controlled way to the room, preventing the development of mildew
