news: Building with conscience is their mission

Sto AG dates back nearly 170 years, when the company began as a lime and cement factory in Germany. Today, Sto AG is a worldwide leader in the development, production and distribution of facade renders and exterior insulation systems.

Based on generations of experience, and cutting edge technology, Sto’s insulation systems, coatings and facade profiles enhance the durability, functionality, and appeal of a building. Sto’s products and their performance are reflected in their mission statement “Building with conscience”, which places emphasis on both visible and invisible quality in construction.

Launched over 30 years ago, Sto Therm Classic is acknowledged to be the most successful facade insulation system in the world. It is a tough, highly durable, externally insulated facade system, offering proven performance in critical functions, scope of application and aesthetic appeal. Outstanding features of this system include:

• eliminates thermal bridges which cause internal condensation

• eliminates 100 per cent humidity in walls

• provides very high crack and shock resistance (10 times higher than that of conventional systems)

• resists micro-organisms such as algae and fungus

• reduces household energy consumption by up to 70 per cent

• provides high weather resistance with components such as expanded polystyrene board and organic plasters

• reduces exterior maintenance

The StoTherm Classic system provides an elevated level of quality for developers and builders in the construction industry, as well as an effective solution for homeowners of older buildings. It is simple and straightforward to install, reliable for planning purposes, and lends itself to different design variants. It adheres to all types of surfaces including concrete, sand lime block, brick, porous concrete or wood, and is available in a range of 800 colours.

Sto also offers an extensive range of stuccos and paints setting the industry standard for functionality, aesthetics and economy. Efficient function of a facade coating must include ability to withstand mechanical stress, defy wind and inclement weather, and prevent algae and fungi. Equally important are the economic aspects. High covering capacity minimises the required amount of render and paint, and reduces labour costs.

Conforsinergia Lda. is the sole representative of Sto AG for Portugal. As well as offering the full range of products, the company has established a network of distribution partners throughout the country, and can provide technical support and effective training courses for industry professionals.

Conforsinergia’s premises are located in Barão de São Miguel, in the western Algarve, and include a warehouse, training facilities, colour tinting station and showroom.
