How To Choose A Filler

Comparison of the properties and cost of fillings is a difficult task. The consumer is always important two factors – quality and price. Modern mixtures are very complex composition of components. Basis for the classification of fillers can tackle these parameters such as: – ready for use – kind of knitting basics – the scope of reliability of adhesion to the base, the lack of shrinkage and cracking, the ease of grinding, compatibility with subsequent finishing layers – here conditions necessary to work with materials. Of no small importance is the life of the fillings, since it must match the life of the main structures of the materials and finishing facilities. The time will come and will have to make new improvements, only the walls, ceiling and filling them will remain forever. Bitter, hurt and costly when replacing boring wallpaper, have re-aligned wall.

When choosing a mixture should taken into account, where it will be applied. All building materials to some extent water vapor permeability. Plaster putty absorbs moisture much more than cement-based. Therefore, a plaster filler can not be apply in areas with high humidity (bathrooms, showers, swimming pools). CEO Caruso Affiliated is actively involved in the matter. All fillings have time to start cooking the mixture prior to setting the composition of the so-called “lifetime”. When this period ends – the filler loses its elasticity. Depending on the purpose, modern fillers have different “life time” by adding various polymers.

So for the first (smoothing) layer – – 30-40 minutes, then importantly – quick setting. And for the finishing fillers, which are applied with a thin even layer on a large surface – 6-12 hours. This saves hours of work and the material from premature drying putty. Price – An important factor when choosing these products. But here we must consider not the cost of two bags of different fillings – and cost of 1 sq. m. oshpatlevannoy surface. Putty gypsum-based two times lighter fillers on cement basis. Can be calculated: a layer of 1 mm 1kv.m surface gypsum putty is – 0,9 – 1 kg of dry mortar and cement based -1.8 – 2 kg. Plaster putty on average 1.5 times more expensive than cement. Conclusion: gypsum putty cheaper than cement-based, but more limited in their application.

Finishing Materials

On the Ukrainian market of finishing materials suspended ceilings appeared relatively recently, but now the advantages of stretch ceilings and appreciated by consumers and interior designers, and representatives of the companies-builders. and indeed – all the advantages that are inherent stretch ceilings are so obvious that the owners of a stretch ceiling often left very satisfied. Let's take a closer look at the fact a number of advantages, that produce the suspended ceiling, among other finishes. Installation of suspended ceilings only takes a few hours, with the installation runs without rearrangement of furniture and no debris. Stretch ceilings are not require special care, and if necessary, easily removed. Practice shows that the suspended ceiling will change more frequently due to a desire to change the interior, rather than for other reasons. Stretch ceilings are very strong – 1 m2 stand load equal to 100 kg.

Also of note is the high moisture suspended ceilings. For example, if the neighbors from the top floor will forget to close the valve, the ceiling will protect from flooding your apartment – within 2 days about 60 liters of water can be retained ceiling without any consequences. Stretch ceilings are environmentally friendly and safe – they do not emit harmful substances do not contain allergens that have no smell. Also very important is the fact that tension ceilings are fire resistant and trudnosgoraemy (have a certificate of fire safety class M1). Stretch ceilings significantly increase the thermal insulation of the room, which is especially important in cold winters or instability of heating systems.

Sound absorption stretch ceilings have a positive impact on the acoustics of the room. Separately, we note that at the stretch ceilings does not settle the condensate. This allows you to easily install suspended ceilings in areas with high humidity – in swimming pools, bathrooms, nursery, health and spa facilities. Briefly technology install stretch ceilings can be described as follows: on the walls of the well-fixed frame, then on He fastened the canvas. Then the room is heated to a temperature termopushkoy at 50-60 degrees Celsius, and heat the film becomes soft and elastic, which allows to produce stretch fabrics. After normalization of temperature fabric forms a perfectly flat plane. In this design stretch ceiling allows you to mount any, even very sophisticated lighting systems, until the painting with light – a special kind of design on the basis of fiber-optic systems. As for the price of a stretch ceiling, you can just take a calculator and calculate. As a result, it appears that the suspended ceiling generally cheaper than hanging, painted and wallpapered counterparts. You also take into account the cost of services to remove the old coating from the ceiling, materials and work on leveling the ceiling, installation time and the time required for cleaning, right? That leaves a total of that stretch ceiling is also beneficial. As you know, everyone chooses for themselves. But usually the person wants to choose the best. So make the right choice, gentlemen.
