Baumit StarSystem Mineral:
The All-Rounder

A home should provide comfort and a good quality of life. Key elements of a pleasant indoor climate are the temperature and air humidity – factors positively affected by Baumit StarSystem Mineral, a thermal insulation system suitable for all types of buildings.

  • BBA approved system
  • Fire resistant
  • Highly permeable

Classic solution

Mineral Wall Insulation

HausMarieThe insulation board Mineral Wool EWI Slab contains no combustible components. They are made of mineral wool fibres, which are bonded to a board with resins. The system stands out due to its excellent sound and fireproofing properties as well as being highly vapour permeable. It noticeably improves the indoor climate. 

An Unbeatable System

Baumit StarSystem Mineral is a proven mineral external wall insulation system suitable for all building classes. Mineral wool boards as a thermal insulation layer are covered with a mineral basecoat (reinforcing layer) consisting of a levelling layer, basecoat and fibreglass mesh. A weather-resistant topcoat is applied over this. Baumit StarSystem Mineral is a British Board of Agrément (BBA) approved system.
