Myths about 3D panels

- or -

How to buy high-quality 3D panels?!

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.


3д панели Gesso Parete

About gesso Parete 3D panels

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

The durability of our 3D panels is comparable to ceramic. Gesso Parete panels withstand point loads up to the moment of destruction - 133 kg, which corresponds to bending strength - 8 MPa and compressive strength - 24mpa. For comparison, the requirements of GOST 6141-91 for ceramic tiles regulate the tensile strength at bending-15 MPa.

Myth 1: 3D panel with voids on the back

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.

While the average weight of Our gesso Parete panels is only 4 kg, the lightest panel of standard size 50x50cm weighs only 2.5 kg and this is not related to voids on the back of the panel. We have the strongest 3D panels on the market! For the last 2 years no panel was broken during transportation.

Gesso Parete 3D tiles are manufactured by two-way injection molding. On the reverse side of our panels there is only the logo of the company with a depth of 2 mm.
Panels with voids-it is inappropriate and unsafe!
Installation of such panels is carried out similarly to panels with an equal back surface, but due to the large volume of voids, it becomes completely impractical to fill them with plaster glue completely, because (not to mention the material costs) the total weight of the wall will increase by 3 times, which can lead to unpredictable consequences. And if you do not fill the void with a solution, then later it will be an ideal environment for the formation of mold and fungi in these recesses.

CONCLUSION: voids on the reverse side - a banal savings on raw materials, veiled under the individual feature of the brand.

Myth 2: Weight of 3D panels

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.

Our production is equipped with modern drying chambers. The average drying time, in compliance with the technology, is 48 hours.

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.


Myth 3: Cement in interior decoration is dangerous to health

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.

A person to relax in a clay or wooden house takes 4 hours, and in the house of reinforced concrete and 10 hours is not enough.

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.
Part 3D panels Parete Gesso contains only 3 eco-friendly certified components: high Strength alpha gypsum Г22 + water + reinforcing fiber.

Myth 4: Fiber is visible on the panel and makes installation difficult

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.

In the production of degesso Parete plaster panels, a method of double pressure application is used, in which a clean radio is first applied to the front part, and then a solution with fiber. The share of fiber in 3d panels Gesso Parete is only 0.1%. And when molding under pressure, the fiber is distributed evenly over the entire surface of the panel, excluding the front part and sticking out of the finished product can not technically. 

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.

LIFE HACK:

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.


Myth 5: 3D panels with mold

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.

Our gesso Parete 3D panels are manufactured with state-of-the-art equipment and are dried by technology in special drying chambers within 48 hours. In these 3D panels never formed mold and other microorganisms.

Myth 6: Polyurethane or gypsum

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.

  1. Durability. Plaster products will serve not one decade and even centuries. Suffice it to recall the famous monuments of architecture. The strength of gypsum panels and moldings are comparable with ceramics and they are very difficult to damage. But even if this happened, the restoration of the former appearance will not take much effort. Polyurethane products are very fragile. Damaged elements can no longer be repaired, they can only be replaced with new ones. Polyurethane has the property of drying, deforming and even yellowing over time. The maximum service life of products made of this material is not more than 5 years.
  2. The Flammability of the material. Plaster products are absolutely incombustible and even at heating do not emit any harmful substances. While the products of polyurethane foam instantly break out and produce a lot of toxic gases, including cyanide – a poison to humans. Even without igniting, particles of this material, which got into the air and then into the lungs, are connected to the protein in the lungs, changing its structure, which leads to the development of emphysema of the lungs.
  3. The atmosphere in the room. Gypsum has a unique property of hygroscopicity, contributing to the regulation of humidity in the room. If the room humidity is high, the gypsum takes some of the moisture on itself, and if the dry air - gives. Due to this, the room maintains an optimal microclimate, which has a beneficial effect on health. Polyurethane, of course, such an ability can not boast. We've already figured out that he might be toxic. But this synthetic material also prevents the free movement of air, which negatively affects health. In the absence of ventilation and the presence of high humidity under the polyurethane decor may appear fungus and (or) mold.
  4. Installation. It is possible to reveal only plus of products from PPU, is ease of installation. But this is also a controversial advantage. When installing gypsum 3D panels or stucco you must use a quality adhesive, for example, Perlfiks from Knauf, then additional fixation of the dowels are not needed and the complexity of installation is balanced with the installation of goods of FPU.
  5. Price. The cost of products from PPU is lower, than from plaster. But it also characterizes its quality. Health is more important than price difference!
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.
