Application

Suitable for internal application to ground-supported and suspended floors in existing and new domestic and non-domestic building applications.


Typically installed:

  • Below a concrete floor slab.
  • Below a floor screed on a concrete slab with a hardcore base.
  • Above a suspended concrete floor (e.g., block and beam) with a floor screed.

Description

baseTherm® is an NSAI Agrément certified, pumpable light-weight thermal and insulation screed mortar. It consists of EPS beads, fast-drying cements and Isostay proprietary additive produced and installed using a mobile floor insulation factory. It is used as a thermally insulating, non-structural, bound expanding polystyrene system (BEPS) which contributes to the thermal and acoustic performance of floors.


Features and benefits:

  • Seamless, void-free poured floor insulation.
  • Factory-produced on-site meaning there is no waste.
  • Rapid pumped installation.
  • Non-combustible.
  • Ultra-lightweight.
  • Acoustic benefits.
  • Highly insulating from 0.041 W/mK.
  • Mixed on site.
  • Uses a purpose-built mobile EPS mortar delivery system.
  • The system is available in four grades, baseTherm® Low Lambda, baseTherm® 150, baseTherm® 200, and baseTherm® 250.
  • NSAI Agrément certified.
  • Meets the requirements of I.S. EN 16025-1 and I.S. EN 16025-2.
