With the growing popularity of 3D panels, the number of Internet resources offering their products, as well as unscrupulous companies imposing their marketing policies, forming the wrong impression about 3D panels and plaster products as a whole, has increased markedly.
Our article is devoted to the main issues related to 3D panels, their production and application.
At the beginning of the article I would like to briefly introduce you to our products, so that during the reading of the information below, You have an idea of what it is.
Decorative panels Gesso Parete represent relief tiles of the square form, the size 50x50 sm, the relief thickness 0.7-3.5 sm and weight only 2.5 - 4 kg made of high-strength plaster G-22 (GVVS-22).
Gypsum is a natural mineral, one of the most environmentally-friendly materials on earth, and products from plaster are a guarantee of safety, environmental friendliness and durability. The average service life of gypsum products is 50 years. Solidify in the moulds, the plaster becomes as stone.
Manufacturers of such panels state that this is done to reduce their weight, and that it does not affect the strength. Small texts write that the product is very fragile and breakage in delivery it happens regularly and even do discounts for broken panels, but are obliged to replace them at his own expense. The weight of such panels 5-6 kg.
CONCLUSION: voids on the reverse side - a banal savings on raw materials, veiled under the individual feature of the brand.
Having dispelled the previous myth about voids on a back surface of plaster 3D panels, we found out that it not only does not reduce their weight, but also even dangerously.
Weight OF Gesso Parete 3D tiles varies from 2.5 kg to 5 kg depending on the relief of the 3d panel. The relief expressions, the greater the weight of the panel. Weight of 1 sq. m. respectively: 10-20 kg. For example, the average weight of 1 sq. m. wall tiles - 16 kg. As you can see, there is nothing supernatural in the weight gypsum 3D tiles no. Therefore, 3D tile Gesso Parete can be mounted not only on the walls, but even on the ceiling. This is with regards to our production.
Of course, 3D panels "handicraft production" can not have such weight and often 2-4 times heavier, which is caused by a violation of the technology of production and drying of gypsum products. Of course, such panels are not recommended and even dangerous to install on the wall, not to mention the ceiling.
By itself, cement is a clinker crushed into dust, which is made from highly radioactive rocks, which, in addition, at the time of firing, absorb impurities of various poisons. As a result, products containing cement, "fonyat." Negative effects can manifest radiation background, the release of various chemicals that adversely affect human health.
It is not recommended to build walls of the house from cement-containing materials (though in modern house building it is difficult to imagine it) as such products do not breathe (there will be an effect on similarity as in a greenhouse). The result is difficult to breathe, the body gets tired faster.
The next point is the ability of cement products to absorb moisture. As a result, indoor air can be very dry, especially if the room is small and 3D panel based on cement occupy most of it. Theoretically, it is fraught with problems in asthmatics, smokers, allergies and people with respiratory diseases. Also, this effect of cement to absorb moisture, when using 3D panels with voids on the reverse side, can cause mold and fungi, because the void between the wall and the panel, it is an excellent habitat for this kind of microorganisms.
CONCLUSION: in the production of gypsum 3D panels, cement is used to reduce the cost of production, using as a basis cheap construction gypsum G3-G5 with chemical additives, in order to strengthen its low strength characteristics. Of course, a self-respecting company will never use these additives in the production of finishing materials for interior decoration.
Фиброволокно - это экологически-чистая армирующая добавка, способствующая увеличению прочностных характеристик гипсовых панелей.
Миф о торчащих волокнах из панели справедлив лишь для "кустарного" производства, в котором не соблюдаются технологии.
We tend to believe that those who write such statements are not competent in this matter. Undoubtedly, if not to observe technology, it is possible to ruin any production and to hang noodles about the reasons of these failures on ears of simple inhabitants, but it already other history.
Gypsum panels Gesso Parete comparable to the fortress with ceramic tiles, but if you dropped the panel with a height of 2 meters and it crashed, it will not mean its elimination, as in the case of the product without fiber. Our panels in the broken form on the structure remind glass "Triplex", pieces of the broken panel to keep among themselves by means of fiber. You will be able to lift the broken panel and install it on the wall, and the seams then zashpaklevat.
The advantage of fiber is undeniable!
Installation of 3D panels Degesso Parete you will never cause problems, because the panels are joined perfectly and there is no need to hammer the drop to the base, where the fiber begins.
Surprisingly, but this can be when production technology is not observed.
Some time ago we received a call concerned a man who bought a 3D plaster panel in the garage to some local "rukoro th" masters, and when after a few days he began to mount them, I found that all the 3d panels in the mold and in addition curves.
The reason for this was - violation of production technology, namely drying 3D panels. Artisanal manufacture, 3D panel dry anywhere and anyhow. Sometimes even on wooden shelves, which together with the extreme humidity formed an active medium for the reproduction of mold, which applies to products. And the drying period, under such conditions, can last up to a month.
This question is more of a marketing section. Advantages of plaster on the face, but the companies which are engaged in production of products from polyurethane spend huge money for advertizing and promotion of the product. Even recently in one TV programs about the repair was obviously paid digression about the benefits of moldings from polyurethane and disadvantages of gypsum products. Of course, a knowledgeable person, this review is laughable and puzzling, but simple consumer will take it seriously. Therefore, we decided to briefly talk about the advantages and disadvantages of gypsum and polyurethane products.
Summarizing all the above stated about the selection of products made of plaster or polyurethane, it can be concluded that all indicators of plaster products superior to any decor-made of polyurethane foam and other synthetic materials in this class.
