External plastering and thermally optimised brick masonry - current test results and a new ...

Summary

The most important results of a large number of tests on the external plastering on brick masonry are presented.  The  tests confirmed that not only present-day standard external walling bricks but also thermally optimised bricks with lightweight plaster undercoats according to DIN 18550-4 can be used for simple, safe and economical plastering.  Part 2 describes material characteristic values of lightweight plasters on plane-ground bricks.  The leaflet "External Plastering on Brick Masonry" has been revised on the basis of these tests in 2002.  13 refs.
