ICB board: Insulation for EIFS
MD Board: Exposed installation with profiled edges
Lambourdé Board: With OSB battens
The cork agglomerate boards are a natural insulation that constitutes an excellent protection against cold and humidity, contributing to the reduction of energy consumption. As an acoustic insulator, its density allows a substantial reduction in noise from outside.
Depending on the needs we have, we can decide on any of the three types of existing plate: ICB, MD or Lambourdé. But … for what uses or applications will we choose each one?
We will choose the ICB natural cork board as an insulator in our EIFS system, adhering it to the support with our SATECork lime mortar and mechanically fixing it with rosettes if necessary. In the following photograph we can see an example of the installation of an ICB board as an insulator for our VIPEQ® Therm EIFS system.
We will opt for MD natural cork board when we want to leave it visible to the outside by adhering it to the support with our mortar. It has profiled edges, and can also be made from half wood. In the following photograph we can see a single-family house made with this type of natural cork plate.
Finally, we will choose the Lambourdé natural cork board to insulate roofs, roofs or interiors of houses, since the plate comes with two installed OSB wood strips and on them we can screw laminated plasterboards and other strips to place tile, for example . This makes assembly and installation very fast.
