Versione Italiana

COCCIOPESTO La scoperta delle malte idrauliche è comunemente attribuita ai Romani, ma sembra che anche i Fenici (già nel X secolo A.C.)ne avessero conoscenza.Le cisterne per l’acqua potabile fatte costruire da Re Salomone a Gerusalemme venivano protette con malte idrauliche ottenute mescolando calce con cocciopesto.Ma furono soprattutto i Romani ad utilizzare largamente le malte idrauliche nella costruzione di strade, ponti, acquedotti, piscine,vasche per il mantenimento dell’acqua,ma anche templi e monumenti di rara bellezza. Impastato con calce era utilizzato come rivestimento o componente per pavimentazione in ambienti, molto umidi, sfruttando l’alta capacità traspirante del Cocciopesto.La ripresa di questa tecnica è vincolata alla conoscenza, scelta e frantumazione del laterizio, mattoni scelti con criterio ed esperienza e solo questo può naturalmente offrire le qualità necessarie per ottenere caratteristiche simili a quelle usate nel passato.Per natura il Cocciopesto è un prodotto BIO-ECOLOGICO non contiene gas VOCs ed è totalmente riciclabile. In particolare le sue caratteristiche idrauliche associate ad opportune tecniche di lavorazione manuale lo rendono impermeabile e traspirante, quindi particolarmente adatto per il rivestimento di bagni e cucine, ed e altamente consigliato nell’isolamento di pareti o pavimenti a contatto permanente con umidita’ molto attiva in particolare locali sotterranei o per il risanamento di facciate esterne o interne con seri problemi di umidita’ il tutto rispettando l’ambiente con un prodotto antico e dall’aspetto caldo.Con una giusta applicazione rispettando i criteri di messa in opera il Cocciopesto risolverebbe ogni problema di umidita’in ogni casa Americana,con un tocco di fascino del passato.
