Most modern residential or commercial buildings are built on the sandwich principle.
First, a frame is erected using a rough material (cinder block, pilobut, foam blocks), and subsequently revetted with decorative elements.
The classic cladding technology is divided into two stages. The first stage is the use of insulation with a thickness of 3-10 cm, for this they make a crate, lay an insulation material (mineral wool, foam).
And the second stage, respectively, the decorating element itself, it can be decorative plaster, porcelain stoneware, metal panels, siding.
But as we understand the technologies do not stand still and manufacturers offer a novelty called "polyfacad". And in this article we will analyze the concept of "polyfacad", the scope, as well as its pros and cons.
This is a new and modern finishing material that is used for facing various types of structures.
In essence, a polyfacade is a synthesis of insulation and a decorative element.
The name "Polyfacad" is originally the name of the manufacturer's company.
The second name is warm tiles. The firm has many branches in major cities of Russia and the CIS.
After the material became popular and widespread, many other manufacturers of modern facing materials, which began to call their building materials "Polyfacad".
This group includes materials that have the following signs :
25 x 25 cm, with different textures.
Polyfacades are produced in the form of slabs, which consist of two functional layers.
The thickness of this layer is 1.5-2 cm. It performs a protective function of both insulation and the entire wall as a whole.
Protects against harmful ultraviolet rays, mechanical influences and external climatic influences. And also, respectively, a decorative function.
Between the layers, firmly is laid as a reinforcing layer.
The two layers are glued using a special technology, which provides a super-strong connection and thanks to this, the product is used for a long time.
First, consider the main material of this material :
Since the cost of a polyfacade per 1 sq. m, 4-5 times cheaper than you will brick with intermediate insulation. And also the weight of polyfacade slabs averages 4-5 kg. , which allows them to be transported quickly and conveniently.
You will need a drill and anchors. With proper installation, the slabs are capable of withstanding a mechanical load of up to 500 kg / cm2.
Thanks to the perfect and sophisticated installation technology, the time required is half as much as when facing with alternative methods. Minimal waste.
It also protects the building wall and insulation from external environmental influences.
How and every material has its drawbacks. But he's only one.
Since the polyfacade is produced in the form of slabs, seams are formed at the joints and they should be sealed with a special elastic putty or sealants.
The use of conventional fillers is unacceptable, as they crack, as a result of which the integrity of the structure is compromised.
Anchoring is also a disadvantage for some installers.
The installation process begins with the preparatory stage.
We begin the process of installing the polyfacade by installing the starting profile.
The profile is usually made of a wooden bar or profiled pipe.
After everything is ready, we begin installation of a row of cladding panels. A combined mounting method is used.
It is applied pointwise at the anchor points, which allows alignment of the tile plane with respect to the wall and in relation to other elements of the facade.
To do this, we use an ordinary grinder with a stone disc to cut the outer layer, and a sharp knife is enough to cut the insulation.
After the glue has dried and all the panels are installed, prepare the holes in the outer layer for the anchors.
After all the elements are fixed with anchors, you can remove the plastic crosses and start sealing the seams and anchor heads.
It is best to use silicone sealant for sealing joints.
Since it has excellent elasticity, which will compensate for the thermal expansion of the tile. And to seal the mounting holes for fasteners, you can use an exterior putty.
And the final stage is priming and painting the entire facade .
The best primer is acrylic .
After it is completely dry, you can start painting with any facade paints.
As you can see, the process of installing a polyfacade is simple and does not require special knowledge. You can do the installation of all the elements of the polyfacade with your own hands, you will need patience, attentiveness and accuracy. Also, in the age of high technologies, on the Internet you can find many photos and videos on the installation of a polyfacade.
In addition, you can, while sitting at home, order a finished product on the official website of the manufacturer with home delivery.
But if you have a lot of time, then you can make a polyfacade yourself at home.
For this we need :
or 50 mm.
It is recommended to use white, it is more presentable and can be easily primed and painted. And gray will have to be primed twice and painted twice at least.
Pour the resulting mixture into molds, with a layer of about 2 cm. The molds usually come in two sizes 25x25 cm and 50x50 cm.
It is desirable to have a vibration table , with its help excess air is removed from the solution.
While the solution is solidifying, we cut the foam to the desired size, make notches around the entire perimeter.
Notches are made for deep penetration of the solution into the foam structure.
The foam is pressed with the notches down against the mortar in the mold and left under load.
After the mortar has completely set, the mold is removed from the load and placed in a dark place to dry completely and gain strength.
After all this, the tile is ready, you can use it for installation according to the technology indicated above.
Tip! It is not recommended to use cement of other brands, as the tiles will crumble.
As we can see, polyfacade is a new generation facing material that allows you to create a modern and attractive facade, as well as to simultaneously insulate a building. The installation process can be carried out independently and at no additional cost.
