Insulating Render & Plaster
Internal / External Wall Insulating Render
ProofTherm insulating render/plaster is a 100% natural, breathable and easy to use insulating plaster that is suitable for use on the vast majority of internal and external wall wall structures.
Suitable for almost all substrates, ProofTherm provides unrivalled flexibility, especially in the treatment of older properties where its ability to breathe (vapour permeability) gives it a major advantage over standard insulation materials.
ProofTherm insulating plaster is an inert mineral product containing zero VOC’s. Advanced manufacturing and a unique formula have enabled us to create a high-performance, lightweight and breathable insulation solution for the 21st Century.

ProofTherm is suitable for use on external walls, internal walls and is also manufactured as a screed for insulating floors
Its primary function is to provide insulation which it achieves by combining lightweight aggregates of igneous rock that have millions of air bubbles trapped in their structure, with a traditional mineral render. The result is a lightweight render/plaster that can be applied to most walls to increase the thermal and acoustic performance of the structure.
ProofTherm is a high-performance insulating render/plaster that provides a number of benefits in one product: Thermal insulation, fire resistance and sound insulation.
When applied as an insulating base coat it helps regulate the internal temperature and moisture handling properties of the building, reducing the energy demand for heating and cooling and creating greater thermal comfort.
The vapour permeable structure of ProofTherm makes it a highly breathable solution for older properties where damp and mould problems max exist.

ProofTherm insulating render/plaster is prepared and used in much the same way as any ready-to/use render or plaster product.
One 15kg bag of ProofTherm covers approximately 2m2 of wall when applied at a depth of 20mm and can be applied at depths ranging from 20mm up to 100mm.
Careful preparation of the surface to be insulated is, as always, very important. For optimum adhesion the wall should be free of dust, grease and any loose material and should then be prepared with ProofBase acrylic primer.
ProofTherm is primarily an insulating material and needs to be finished off with a decorative and resilient top coat such as ProofDeco mineral render.
