At StyroDesign, for more than 10 years, we specialize in decoration of buildings, cultural and amusement facilities, and can offer different solutions, both in terms of quality of the execution and budget. We operate with an almost full range of modern and traditional facade decoration materials, and we have the know-how and experience to combine them to achieve the best result.
In recent years there is a real boom in the production of decorative elements and facade decorations. Newer and more complex materials are available on the market, which equal or even exceed the quality and characteristics of the corresponding traditional and natural materials. At exhibitions, the most incredible solutions can often be seen – such as the colourless concrete that caused great excitement in 2010 – hard and transparent like glass.
We are ready to help each one of our customers to navigate in the various ways for facade decoration and offer an optimal solution for the completion of their project.
The revolution in building decoration technology has resulted in the appearance of various low weight and lightweight materials. Today it does not matter how old the building is, what construction materials were used, whether the structure is made of stone, is it lightweight or built on frame technology: each building can become a real palace.
The process of facades decoration allows the use of different types of materials. However, each material has its advantages and disadvantages to be taken into account in the specific project. For example, gypsum offers excellent opportunities to create fine details but absorbs moisture and is very fragile. Facade ornamentations made of concrete are durable and resistant to the degrading effects of atmospheric conditions but are extremely heavy and difficult to install. The expanded polystyrene (EPS/XPS) decoration is the lightest and allows the production of the most sophisticated and individual shapes, but cannot withstand mechanical stresses and easily breaks down and changes its quality characteristics under the influence of atmospheric conditions, thus requiring protection of decorative articles with different coatings types.
Products made of moulded expanded polystyrene are many times cheaper than all other types of facade decoration materials. The elements are individually cut by CNC machines from high-density EPS and protected with a cement-based polymer coating that protects them from ageing and gives them a natural look.
In the 1930s Germany invented a polymer capable of combining all the best properties of materials from which facade design has traditionally been made. The polyurethane is a unique material for the creation of a decorative facade interior.
Преди няколко години, белгийската компания Orac Decor предложи свой вариант на максимално дълготраен и издръжлив материал композитен материал с наименованието Дурополимер. Той представлява пресован по специфичен начин полистирол, така, че да достигне плътност от 350-420 кг/м3. В това състояние, материала придобива извънредно голяма износоустойчивост и много високи механични характеристики. В последствие се създава облекчена версия на материала с плътност около 250 кг/м3. В нея, като допълнителен ингредиент са добавени дървени въглища.
Architectural high-strength polymer concrete
Polymerbeton is the generic name for polymer concrete, consisting of a dispersed fraction (sand, quartz, mineral dyes) and addition of a thermosetting binder – usually an epoxy resin, acrylic, etc. The synthetic additives in the composition of the polymer concrete give it numerous additional properties that have a favourable effect on the material quality and durability. Polymer concrete is more durable than the conventional concrete, both in terms of tensile and compressive strength, more moisture and frost resistant does not crack or absorb water.
