Crossin® Front System - a complete certified external thermal insulation composite system based on polyurethane insulation panels. Crossin® Front System is an effective insulation system that can help you not only to significantly reduce heat and energy losses in a building, but also to ensure a healthy environment in insulated rooms.
Crossin® Front System is a set of well-matched – in terms of parameters and quality – elements. Including:
Crossin® Front ST04 adhesive mortar based on Portland cement with polyurethane fillers (for fixing panels to the base surface and for embedding reinforcing mesh),
Crossin® PUR TPD insulation panel,
VERTEX reinforcing mesh,
Crossin® Front A Grunt primer,
Crossin® Front A plaster (thin-coat plaster).
Each element of the system was carefully selected and tested. The system is used for external thermal insulation in the ETICS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System) technology and is primarily characterised by:
resistance to moisture and water,
low staining susceptibility of the finishing layer,
remarkable resistance to fungi and mould, as well as repelling insects and rodents,
very good vapour permeability parameters (water vapour diffusion resistance factor μ = 20).
The system primarily allows to:
reduce heat and energy losses (including the costs) related to interior heating and cooling.
ensure an adequate air circulation and a healthy interior environment;
increase the protection of walls and façades against pests and microorganisms, including mould and fungi;
reinforce the facade’s resistance to mechanical staining.
The Crossin® Front insulation is an ideal solution for thermal insulation of homes and residential buildings, schools and kindergartens, sports halls, and other public facilities. Due to its high insulation parameters and resistance to mould and fungi, the Crossin® Frontsystem is recommended for thermal insulation of refrigeration warehouses, as well as production and storage halls inside of which a constant temperature should be maintained. In addition, Crossin® Front is a perfect solution for thermal modernisation works and thermal insulation of utility buildings.
Using a system based on the Crossin® TPD PUR panels,allows to avoid unnecessary reduction of living and/or utility space, and at the same time provides an adequate thermal comfort.
The lower thickness of insulation also means a lower depth of window recesses and better lighting in rooms. This is particularly important in autumn and winter season, and positively affects the well-being of occupants.
On the other hand, the high diffusivity of all elements of the Crossin® FrontSystem helps to ensure a proper air circulation and a healthy environment inside the insulated interiors.
The closed-cell structure of PUR panels ensures a high resistance to moisture and water – the greatest enemies of insulation materials. It guarantees the stability of the thermal insulation parameters of the system. An important feature of PUR panels is that they do not emit any hazardous substances.
The most important technical parameters of Crossin® TPD PUR panels:
panel dimensions: 1000 x 600 mm,
panel thickness: from 20 to 200 mm,
panel density: 32-35 kg/m3,
long-term water absorption: 3%,
compressive strength: 150 kPa,
diffusion resistance factor: μ = 20.
To ensure a proper installation of the system and the effectiveness of the insulation, special mortars have been selected for fixing PUR panels on the base surface and for embedding the reinforcing mesh. The versatility of the Crossin® Front ST04 adhesive mortar eliminates the possibility of making a mistake at the stage of laying individual layers of the insulation system.
The Portland cement-based Crossin® Front System adhesive has been tested for its adhesion to PUR boards and can be used on all common mineral base surfaces and on surfaces covered with a well-adhering paint or facade plaster. The mortar is characterized by high resistance to shrinkage cracks and ease of application. The Crossin® Front ST04 adhesive contains polyurethane fillers that make its application easier and at the same time increase the mortar’s performance.
The most important technical parameters of the Crossin® Front ST04 adhesive:
adhesion to PUR panels: min. 0.08 MPa,
compressive strength: ≥ 3.5 MPa,
adhesion to concrete: ≥ 0.25 MPa,
bulk density: 1150 kg/m3,
thermal conductivity coefficient: ≤ 0.57 W/(m•K),
diffusion resistance factor: μ ≤ 20.
Using the high-quality Crossin® Front A Grunt primer with increased resistance to mould and fungi, and the dirt-resistant Crossin® Front A plaster allows you to create a durable and aesthetically pleasing insulation for the building.
Important technical parameters of Crossin® Front A Grunt:
base binding agent: acrylic and silicone binder,
color: white or tinted to match the color of the plaster,
pigments: inorganic coloured pigments,
weight/package: 10 l,
density: approx. 1,3 g/cm3,
solid content: min. 44%,
average consumption: approx. 0.20 l/m2 (depending on the absorbency of the base surface),
drying time: 24 h (approximately 24 h at the temperature of +20˚C and the relative humidity of 55%. At lower temperatures and higher base surface moisture, the drying time is longer),
temperature of use (for air and base surface): from +5°C to +25°C.
Important technical parameters of Crossin® Front A:
base binding agent: silicone binder,
color: natural white or chosen from the color well,
