StoTherm Classic Impact test

Official external test centres have awarded StoTherm Classic first-class quality certificates.

In a system structure consisting of StoLevell Classic (reinforcement and adhesive), glass fibre mesh, and Stolit as the top coat, StoTherm Classic is resistant to an impact of up to 60 joules in the plinth area. This is confirmed by external test certificates. The excellent flexibility of the material means that very dark colours can also be used as the top coat.

The organic system offers significantly greater shock and impact resistance than mineral systems, guarantees maximum crack resistance, and consists of absolutely cement-free system components throughout. For extreme shock loadings, impact resistance of up to 60 joules is demonstrably achievable with the corresponding structures.
