Product description

The mira XPS building board consists of a blue core made from extruded polystyrene rigid foam. Blue core is CO2-foamed, extruded polystyrene rigid foam with closed cell structure and flame-retardant additive. The polystyrene rigid foam is HCFC and CFC-free. The rigid foam is reinforced with glass fibre (with alkali-resistant finish) on both sides and coated with a polymer-modified cement.

Mira XPS building boards are approved for interior use in rooms at a normal temperature. Mira XPS building boards are approved for use on floors in rooms with an ordinary residential load. Loads with high concentrated loads are not permitted.

 

Installation

Boards at least 20 mm thick can be mounted on a 600 mm pitch frame. With a 12.5 mm slab requiring a 300 mm pitch frame. Thinner boards are only suitable for use on solid walls. Plywood or an OSB board can be attached to the back of the mira XPS board to increase its impact resistance or to secure furniture and fittings. This can either be done throughout the entire room or only on heavier load-bearing walls.

Boards at least 50 mm thick are suitable for use in the construction of light screens, shower enclosures and bathtub encasements. Steps, bath boxes and similar smaller structures are completed with playful ease.

Measure the details and cut by hand; thinner boards can also be cut with a sharp knife. The details can be glued together using mira 3690 one seal. To ensure better adhesion, the cut surfaces must be smoothed with sandpaper prior to gluing. Apply the glue in a zigzag pattern to the substrate and press the details together. The parts can additionally be fastened using high-thread screws.

After the glue has dried, apply waterproofing if necessary, and the surface will be ready for tiling.
