Mold Preventing I nterior System
interior insulation and renovation boards
A system of components that have been designed to work perfectly together
to repair damage caused by mold. The system consists of boards, insulation
wedges, reveal boards, and a filler (capillary active coating).
This lightweight, low-density calcium silicate board improves thermal insulation and optimally
regulates the interior condensation and the indoor climate. Its specific properties allow for the
perfect interior insulation for ornate buildings or historical structures; the rehabilitation of
condensation-drenched walls; and rapid drainage of structures as a secondary measure to
counteract rising moisture. The system is also used for lining interior walls
and restoration of living space after fire, water or mold damage.

Reduction of heating costs
Improvement of indoor climate
In situations where objects cannot be insulated on outside walls due to aesthetic concerns or
historical preservation, the system ensures functional interior insulation for
improved thermal efficiency. Example: The heat loss of an 8 inch thick block wall is reduced by
50% with an interior insulation of only 1 inch thickness. Due to the high level
of vapor diffusion, the interior climate is well balanced.

Mold Preventing I nterior System
The system consists of cellulose-reinforced calcium silicate, which is extremely light
and absorbs condensation from the base surface and evaporates into the room air.
This keeps the surface consistently dry and thus prevents the implantation of mold spores and
shedding of wallpaper or paint. The pH value of about 10.5 (alkaline) prevents the growth of
mold (pH value 4.5–6, acidic to neutral).

Construction of physically sound system solutions
Natural materials
By increasing the surface temperature, the formation of condensation on the inner wall surface
will be avoided. During the production of system components, no mineral
fibers or other additives, such as formaldehyde or CFCs are added. System boards
provide no breeding ground for mold, remain free of insects and do not release toxic gases
in any event.
•
Cost advantage due to space-saving solution and easy handling
Due to the quick installation of the light-weight board and no need for additional structural
components, the system provides a decisive cost advantage.
Use as interior insulation and avoid moisture problems
In situations where objects cannot be insulated on the outside walls due to aesthetic concerns or
historical preservation, the system ensures functional interior insulation for improved
thermal insulation. For technical support, please contact Eco- $mart.
Use after mold, fire or water damage
The system is suitable for the permanent elimination of condensation problems on the
inside of exterior walls and its associated symptoms such as musty smell, decay of the
interior plaster, peeling wallpaper and coatings, mold and the commonly associated health
problems. The system is highly effective if condensation forms on walls as a result of
insufficient or incorrectly installed exterior insulation or if moisture penetrates exterior
walls. The cause of the moisture penetration must be determined by a specialist. Permanent
damage, such as defective sealing or leakage, must be repaired before applying the system.
Preparation of walls and ceiling surfaces
Remove old wallpaper and paint. Remove mold in effected areas. Eliminate loose plaster. Scratch
out damaged mortar joints. Grout cracks with filler. Repair imperfections at the plaster surface, if
the plaster is to remain. On an even base surface, the preferred method for installing the
boards is the comb bed method. If the base surface is perfectly even, the bead-point
method can be used.

Mold Preventing I nterior System
Surface treatment
In as little as 24 hours after installation of the boards, the surface can be treated.
As the system is capillary active, open to diffusion and evaporation, the treatment of
the surface should not negatively affect these properties. Filler, wallpaper, paint
or plaster must also be capillary active.
Special Filler
The Special Filler is designed for fast, high quality surface finishing of the boards.
When applied correctly, the product yields a very smooth and solid surface.
The Filler is capillary active and has a high pH value. Before applying the filler to the
boards, ensure that the boards have been treated with Special Primer. Otherwise
moisture is removed too quickly from the filler due to the absorbency of the
boards, resulting in insufficient curing and, therefore, poor adhesion.
Wallpaper
Light paper or glass fabric wallpaper is suitable. For painting, permeable plastic-free
lime paints or silicate paints are recommended. Woodchip wallpaper (there is a danger
of moisture due to wood components) is only suitable to a limited extent. Plastic or
foil wallpaper (not permeable) is not recommended. Before applying wallpaper, boards
need to be treated with Special Primer to ensure optimal adhesion. Depending on the
properties of the surface, it may be necessary to apply Special Filler beforehand.
Painting
Before painting, the boards must be treated with Special Primer. For painting,
permeable plastic-free lime paints or silicate paints are recommended. Latex paints
should not be used, as they will form an impermeable film at the first or second coat.
Applying Special Filler to the entire surface beforehand is recommended.
Anti-Condensation Coating:
Even the most difficult problems with condensation can be remedied with the
Anti-Condensation Coating. The Anti-Condensation Primer is recommended in place of the
Regular Primer. In this case, it is not necessar y to apply Special Filler to the entire surface
before applying coating.
Plastering
Application of a permeable, acrylate-free, mineral spray or thin plaster is possible according to
the manufacturer's specifications. A thin silicate plaster (approx. 1/8 inch) onto the primed
surface is recommended.
Tiles
When tiling onto boards, screw anchors are to be used to secure the board to the base
surface. Tiling adversely affects the function of the boards. Therefore the tiling should
not constitute more than 2/3 of the entire area of the wall. Boards must be treated
with Special Primer before tiling. The tiling should be performed in accordance
with the generally accepted rules of the tiling profession. In wet areas, sealant is
recommended between board and tiling.
