Also known as thermoacoustic tile, the sandwich tile is one of the best tile models when it comes to sealing and insulation. But it is not only for this reason that it has been standing out in the civil construction market.
In today's post you will get to know the sandwich tile better and understand why it is an option that should be considered when planning the roof (and other spaces in the house).
What is sandwich tile?
The sandwich tile is formed by two metal sheets, mostly made of galvanized steel. Between these two sheets there is a kind of insulator, which can be made of polyurethane or styrofoam, but polyurethane provides an even better insulation.
It is precisely because of this manufacturing process that makes the tile known as a sandwich tile. The interior of the tile is still formed by some other chemical materials – names that are even difficult to pronounce – such as polystyrene and polyisocyanurate. All of them, together with the rock and the glass wool, guarantee the effectiveness of the sandwich tile.
Advantages x disadvantages
As previously mentioned, the main indication of the sandwich tile is for thermoacoustic insulation, that is, to help reduce noise and temperature fluctuation.
For shops, concert halls and bars, this tile is perfect, mainly due to sound insulation, but nothing prevents it from being used in residential projects as well.
Some sandwich tile manufacturers guarantee that sound insulation can reach up to 90%. But among the most interesting advantages is that this type of tile also acts in the control of fire outbreaks, making it a very safe option.
The sandwich tile also does not absorb water, so it prevents the appearance of leaks and leaks.
The main disadvantage of sandwich tiles is in relation to price and application, which can only be done by specialized professionals. It is much more expensive than other tiles, but due to the qualities it offers, the result ends up being worth it.
Types of sandwich tile
There are two types of sandwich tile on the market, the double tile and the single tile.
The simple sandwich tile does not have two layers of sheet metal. It consists of just a plate, coating and an aluminum foil. This aluminum sheet faces the interior of the house. The metal plate faces the external area.
The double sandwich tile has an extra plate, resulting in a composition of sheet metal, coating and another sheet metal. Thanks to this composition, the double sandwich tile ends up giving greater acoustic and thermal insulation.
The thermal insulation offered by the tile makes it also used in colder regions as a wall covering, keeping the environment warm, without relying so much on industrial heating or heating. In these cases, it is valid for works that use steel frame and drywall construction, which allow the construction of walls and partitions with ease.
In addition, the sandwich tile can have different shapes. The wavy models are great for buildings with curved roof. In these cases, the most suitable insulation is also that of wool, which allows more movement of the material.
Price and maintenance
The price is one of the main disadvantages of the sandwich tile. In general, the value can range from R $ 50 to R $ 120 per square meter, depending on the region of the country.
The price may change by region due to the temperature. In states with colder or very hot temperatures it is usually more expensive.
But if price is an issue, maintenance is worth the downside. It is very simple and, when installed correctly, it takes years without needing adjustments. But it is important to always keep an eye on and detect the presence of materials that can prevent the proper flow of water, such as the residues brought by the rains. Standing water can cause corrosion, which in turn can generate perforations in the tile.
On façades, for example, the sandwich tile needs to be cleaned constantly and if you chose to paint your tile, you need to touch up the paint from time to time.
