Aspect Degradation of ETICS Due to Higrothermal Behaviour

Eva Barreira, Vasco P. De Freitas & Eva Barreira
The external thermal insulation systems for walls (expanded polystyrene insulation faced with a thin rendering) – ETICS, have been used in Portugal since the nineties. Although its thermal advantages, Portuguese buildings covered with ETICS are faced with a huge and yet unsolved problem: aspect degradation of the system as a result of microbiological growth. In the recent years, some studies have been carried out on this issue, but practical conclusions are not very satisfactory: so...
