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

Chateau built in the 18th century.
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.
