Mineralized cement-bond wood fibre, is produced by the union of two truly excellent building materials, wood and cement. Mixing wood fibre, water and cement to a natural mineral leads to the mineralization of the wood. Mineralization allows the wood to lose its organic properties, making it inert and thus resistant to external agents, such as insects, parasites and mould. At the same time, mineralization conserves the thermo-acoustic insulating characteristics of the wood. The porosity of the material also guarantees the breathability of the wall allowing for the natural adjustment of humidity (extremely low resistance to the passage of vapour, μ = 5.9) and preventing the formation of condensation and mould. The result is exceptionally comfortable living conditions in rooms and considerable energy savings, which translate to lower costs of heating in winter and cooling in summer.
In addition the Isotex cement-bonded wood fibre block construction system provides excellent extra insulation with minimal maintenance, thanks to the shape of the blocks themselves. The insulating layer, whose thickness can be as much as 18 cm, is covered by a layer of cement-bonded wood fibre to ensure maximum protection yet breathability.
Research and innovation Isotex have led to the study and implementation of a new block model, greatly improved from the point of view of thermal insulation and of the bearing capacity, which is increased by 45%. From the technical point of view the new blocks have been designed with ribs 2 instead of 3, obtaining a layer of insulating material significantly more continuous and homogeneous. Isotex’s research and innovation have led to a new block model, significantly improved in terms of thermal insulation and bearing capacity, increased by 45%.
Technically speaking, the new blocks have been de-signed with ribs 2 instead of 3 to allow the layer of insulating material to be significantly more continuous and homogeneous.
Tangible confirmation of the above comes from the PRESTIGIOUS Class A+ and Gold CERTIFICATIONS obtained by our accomplishments.
