True versatility

ORIGINAL MELDORFER® products can be used on almost any substrate. They have a low weight and are very thin when applied in comparison to solid bricks and brick slips, meaning less time spent on handling and lower costs. They are suitable for use on façade insulation systems, ventilated curtain wall façades, monolithic structures, combination façades and interior areas.

DESIGN AND FUNCTION

Technology in perfect harmony

Solutions by design

Original Meldorfer® products can be used on any insulation system, regardless of the insulation material thickness. What’s more, they can be applied to insulation panels made from mineral wool, EPS or polyurethane. Unlike conventional systems that use hard surfaces, there is not always the need for additional anchoring, and the insulation only requires 40 percent adhesive coverage. There is no need for field demarcation joints.

The adhesion and joint formation processes are carried out in a single step using just one material. The surfaces retain their value outstandingly well and are exceptionally durable – as well as frost-resistant, UV-stable, quick-drying and able to withstand mechanical strain. Whether they’re used outdoors or indoors, the truly versatile products from the Original Meldorfer® brand offer outstanding technical attributes at the right price, and can help make any design dream come true.
