Thermo Rinzaffo

Thermo-insulating and dehumidifying scratch coat based on expanded glass

Thermo-insulating scratch coat for outdoor/indoor, based on expanded glass, low salts mineral inerts, hydraulic bonding agents and specific addictives, engineered as first coat for thermo-insulating plasters (ThermoFond), to even the absorption of the support and enhance adhesion.



Fields of application

Can be applied on:

  • Stone masonries
  • Brick masonries
  • Tuff and mixed masonries
  • Brick masonries
Support preparation

Substrate must be perfectly solid, free from duest, dirt, failing parts and efflorescences. Clean the surfaces by sanding or sandblasting, then wash with pressurized water to remove any residue.

In the presence of efflorescences or salts, proceed by washing with low pressurized water. In the case of salt excess, treat the support with an efflorescences inhibitor (see SalMur).

Wet the support before application and wait the superficial water to evaporate.

Mixture Preparation

To apply by hand, pour in a container the right amount of water to mix a bag of Thermo Rinzaffo, add gradually the powder and mix with a low-rounds stirrer or cement mixer until an even, clump-free mixture is achieved. Let rest for 5 minutes and stir briefly before usage.

To apply via machinery, use a PFT plastering machine, adjusting the flow-meter to obtain a thixotropic consistency.


Apply by hand with a trowel or plastering machine, covering evenly the surface for a total thickness of 4-5mm. Let cure for at least 24 hours before applying the plaster.


Use clean, non-brackish water. Apply between 5°C and 35°C. Do not apply in high sun exposure and on rainy/windy days. Protect from rain, wind, sun and rapid desiccation for 24-48 hours after application. In case of application during summer, ensure a constant desiccation by using Sunshieldings/Windbreakers. Do not add materials, cement or other bonding agents in the bag. It is recommended to mix the entire content of the bag in one solution.
