Tecplaster Mortar

New fireproof Tecplaster® Mortar

In order to complete the passive fire protection catalogue and to offer our clients and distributors all sorts of fire-resistant materials, mercor tecresa® R&D Department has developed Tecplaster®, our new fireproof mortar.

Tecplaster® Mortar is prepared with hydraulic binders (plaster), perlite and vermiculite, which are two light volcanic components that give a better thermal insulation and material performance. The mortar is also made up of  other additives that improve their physical and fire-resistant features.
