Diathonite Deumix - What it is?
Diathonite Deumix is a natural and eco-friendly plaster, made of cork, clay, diathomaceous earth and natural hydraulic lime NHL 5. Diathonite Deumix is the only dehudifying plaster with thermal properties. It thus contributes to energy saving, it limits interstitial condensation and thus the humidity to dispose of.
Efficient and durable dehumidification
Diathonite Deumix enables the permanent dehumidification of any wall affected by capillary rising damp, upgrading the appearance of the façade and walls.
Thermal insulation and energy saving
The good thermal characteristics of Diathonite Deumix increase energy savings: it insulates efficiently from cold and heat, providing an aesthetic and functional restoration of the masonry.
Effective against all kind of dampness
Diathonite Deumix does not only resolve the problem of capillary rising damp: its thermal properties prevent the formation of surface condensation. Moreover, its thermal properties are not affected by potential interstitial condensation.
CE and WTA safety certificates
Diathonite Deumix, Diathonite Rinzaffo and Watstop have the CE marking in accordance with the UNI-EN 998-1 and UNI-EN 1504-2 standards and satisfy WTA requirements for mortars and plasters used to restore and dehumidify buildings.
Resistance and stability
Diathonite Deumix is strong and flexible: it is not susceptible to cracking, can be used both indoors and outdoors, does not require reinforcing mesh, is incombustible and does not burn or emit smoke.
Diathonite Deumix guarantees maximum living comfort: warmer and dryer spaces, healthy relative humidity level thanks to its hygroscopic properties and the elimination of surface and interstitial condensation.
Healthiness of environments
Diathonite Deumix makes spaces healthier: improves air quality to reduce allergies and respiratory diseases, eliminates odours caused by damp walls, prevents mould formation due to bacteriostatic and anti-mould properties.
Compatible with historic restoration and sustainable housing
Diathonite Deumix is made of natural hydraulic lime NHL 5 and is thus compatible with all historic building restorations under supervisory control. In the same way, it can be used for the construction and restoration of sustainable housing and green buildings.
Diathonite Deumix is 3 times lighter than traditional dehumidifying plaster and so reduces the overall weight of the wall. It reduces also transportation costs.
