Kimia S.p.A.

Since 1979, Kimia has produced a complete range of products for building restoration, recovery and maintenance. With twenty years of specialization, it can offer truly dynamic products. In fact, Kimia is constantly updating its lines of products to respond promptly to new problems related to building recovery and restoration and to keep up with the technological progress being applied in the construction field. In addition, the reliability of Kimia products has been confirmed by the worst kind of test: the architectural heritage damaged by the earthquake in 1984 and consolidated with Kimia products was not touched in the least by the earthquakes that years later - starting in September of 1997 - once again violently struck the territory of Umbria and the Marches.

 

Limepor COCCIOFORTE


Description

System consisting of a mix of “cocciopesto” (Limepor COCCIOFORTE C) aggregates mixed with a twocomponent organic binder (Limepor COCCIOFORTE/A + Limepor COCCIOFORTE/B). Final mechanics achieved after just 7 days; applicable to substrates painted on the intrados, available in ivory and antique red color variants; no need of metal meshes and connectors. The whole system is positioned without altering the integrity of the vault with dense anchors; it can easily be removed after heat treatment.


Use cases

Structural system with cocciopesto effect collaborative castings


Advantages

  • Reduced increase in loads thanks to the light weight due to reduced thicknesses.
  • Low elastic modulus associated with excellent resistance to compression and bending.
  • High permeability.
