CRUPE Protect replaces a number of traditional products with one that is both easier to use and better for the environment. The reduction in the number of products required for the build means a faster building time and lower, yet more predictable budgets than most traditional methods.

Given it's larger constituency of gypsum (not cement), CRUPE Protect offers a number of key advantages over the traditional cement and gypsum products, including better drying characteristics, lower environmental footprint and complete absence of chemical-based adhesives in its application.

CRUPE Protect delivers a monolithic structure of unparalleled strength, while remaining far less energy-intensive in application and cost. Building services such as air-conditioning or insulation needs are greatly reduced or rendered unnecessary due to CRUPE Protect's enhanced thermal qualities – again reducing overall build and operating budgets as well as lowering carbon emissions.

CRUPE Protect is a revolutionary new building material (proprietary product) that combines a unique mineral-based binding agent with a mortar based solution, including expanded polystyrene (‘EPS’) and/or perlite, to produce a building product with excellent thermal and fire rating, as well as outstanding acoustic performance and structural properties.

CRUPE Protect is suitable for both existing and new buildings constructed from concrete, brick, masonry concrete block and light steel framing. It is a flexible, simple product that is revolutionizing the construction industry around the world.

The key benefits of CRUPE Protect:

  • Certified and Rated around the world
  • A1 fire rated up to 4+ hours
  • Significantly reduces building time (in some cases by up to 70%)
  • Significantly reduces building costs (in some cases by up to 50%)
  • Less energy intensive, more environmentally friendly, a better product
  • Requires less experienced skills on site to apply, saving time and money
  • Neutral PH properties – easy and safe handling on site
  • Ideal for use in areas with higher risk of earthquake, hurricane and humidity
  • Creates a Monolithic Structure which is both more efficient and safer

INSULTHERM 500

CRUPE Protect Insultherm 500 is an insulation material, specifically created for builds involving the renovation and restoration of existing buildings. CRUPE Protect Insultherm 500 is sprayed onto an existing structure using one of CRUPE's approved pumping machines (see more below). In a single operation, CRUPE Protect Insultherm 500 produces a monolithic surface of lightweight material, which delivers excellent fire, impact and acoustic protection as well as above standard thermal and structural properties.

PRODUCT PROPERTIES:

An aqueous gypsum plaster base combined with cement is mixed with water and our CRUPE additive to create a relatively fluid composition which is sprayed using a pump. Whilst fluid when mixed, CRUPE Protect Insultherm 500 has sufficient viscosity so that it does not slump on contact. This permits vertical layers of 75mm or greater to adhere during the spray application.

CRUPE Protect Insultherm 500 is supplied in both 20kg and 25kg bags depending on the region. The product is made up of a unique blend of calcined gypsum, hydraulic cement and sand, combined with our patented CRUPE additive in the correct weight ratio. The chemical reaction occurs when the composition is mixed with water. Hardening of the mixture takes roughly 60 minutes.

KEY BENEFITS OF INSULTHERM 500:

  • Above standard fire insulation
  • Incombustible properties with no smoke emissions
  • Waterproof properties and permeable to water vapour performance
  • Effective acoustic properties
  • Monolithic coverage
  • A weight to volume ratio of only up to 500kg/M3
  • High resistance to surface cracking
  • Imperceptible shrinkage, no edge curl when setting
INSULTHERM 600

CRUPE Protect Insultherm 600 is an insulation material, specifically created for builds involving the renovation and restoration of existing buildings.

CRUPE Protect is suitable for both existing and new buildings constructed from concrete, brick, masonry concrete block and light steel framing. It is a flexible, simple product that is revolutionising construction around the world.

Due to negligible shrinkage, control joints for CRUPE Protect Insultherm are normally not required. Joints may be required where there is potential movement in the building structure or ground foundations that could transfer stresses to the CRUPE Protect Insultherm layer. The neutral PH properties of CRUPE Protect makes for easier handling by the person applying the material on site, as they do not require protective clothing and gloves that both restricts productivity and increases fatigue particularly in hot and humid climates.
