In TESELA we continue innovating and advancing in the European project hermETICS.

­čĆá The project is part of the sustainable construction sector and consists of the development of mortars for Exterior Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) with high lightness and self-repairing properties.

On the one hand, the mortar uses used car tyres or “End of Life Tyres” (ELT) ­čÜŚ, which act not only as a lightening material, but also reduce the environmental impact by introducing waste into the value chain. This represents a sustainable alternative to comply with the environmental strategies proposed by the European Commission.

On the other hand, the mortar integrates self-repairing materials that act on possible cracks caused by exogenous factors, improving air tightness and reducing thermal bridges in the building envelope. ­čöž
