EUMEPS Masterclass ETICS - External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems
On March 18 and 19 2013, EUMEPS (European Manufacturers of EPS) will
organise a Master Class on External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems
Maaseik, Belgium, January 10, 2013 -- On March 18 and 19 2013, EUMEPS
(European Manufacturers of EPS) will organise a Master Class on External
Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS).
ETICS is one of the fastest growing facade constructions, playing a
dominant role in realising energy efficiency in new buildings and
existing buildings to be renovated .
In a two day programme top European ETICS experts will provide a thorough
briefing on all relevant actual topics related to this application, such
The size and trends of the ETICS market, - The role of the architect in
Environmental aspects related to ETICS,
The use of an Environmental Products Declaration for an ETICS system,
ETICS and the Construction Products Regulation (CPR),
Optimum insulation thickness in ETICS,
Quality criteria for EPS in ETICS,
Design of a fire safe ETICS construction
Design for a near zero energy building,
Construction details for different ETICS systems.
These topics and many more make it a compelling event for every
professional in the Building and Construction sector involved with
design, supply, building and renovation.
EUMEPS is a European association of the EPS industry. EUMEPS membership
represents over 90% of the European manufacturing industry. The common
interest between members is a belief that EPS is the most cost effective
packaging and insulation material. EPS packaging is the best protective
packaging for valuable and fresh goods combining sustainability and
competitiveness in a single packaging solution; Recycling being promoted
through the world wide INEPSA network. For thermal insulation in
construction, EPS offers long-term properties such as high insulation
value, high compressive strength and moisture resistance. EPS is
lightweight, versatile, easy and completely safe to work with, making it
the ideal material in a wide range of applications. EPS has a key role in
ensuring safe, comfortable and energy efficient buildings, whilst also
contributing strongly to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emission. EPS
comprises about 35 per cent of the total thermal insulation market in
Europe and with over 55,000 people employed in the European EPS industry.
The role of EUMEPS is to ensure that the advantages of EPS are brought to
a larger audience. This is achieved by information sharing to enable an
informed dialogue with stakeholders on a national and European level.
