Unleash your creativity! Baumit CreativTop modeled plaster
Modern facade materials are opening up more and more opportunities for architects to decorate facades, giving them a chance to sail into the wide waters of creativity. Color is no longer the only means of artistic expression - it is joined by diverse surface structures, bringing the design of the appearance of buildings to a whole new dimension.
A facade is a structural element of a building that, in a way, defines its character. And while you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, in architecture the facade defines the building - it emphasizes its style, decorates it, and at the same time often hints at what you can expect when you go inside.

For architects, on the other hand, it opens up a chance to experiment, unleash their talent and bring their designs to life. For nowadays they can use a wide range of facade materials, designing investments that cannot be passed by indifferently.
The juxtaposition of different colors and textures within the front wall is currently very popular. At the same time, claddings of real wood or stone are expensive - the investor's budget does not always allow for their use in the project. In addition, such claddings, although they look impressive on the facade, are sometimes troublesome - both in terms of installation and subsequent care, in addition, the natural board is a flammable element.

A new dimension in facade design
There is, however, a more practical and less expensive solution - Baumit CreativTop silicone modeled plaster, which allows you to create any structure on the facade and achieve extraordinary decorative effects on thermal insulation systems, as well as old and new mineral surfaces, concrete or joint compounds.
Thanks to several variations in the grain size of the plaster, the possibility of coloring it in many colors and various techniques for its application, it is possible to create any structure on the facade, gaining almost unlimited possibilities for creative design of the facade, because the only thing that can stand in the way of the architect is his imagination. The effect of rolling, troweling, slurring, filling, coarse grain or smoothing - these are just some of the textures that can be achieved with this versatile solution.
Silicone modeled plaster with Drypor effect
It is worth noting that Baumit CreativTop modeled plaster, appearing in duo with decorative coatings from the Baumit Design Life line, can perfectly imitate other materials, such as wood, natural stone, concrete, clinker brick and even metal.
It perfectly replicates their surface and natural beauty, making it an ideal solution for those who appreciate original forms of facade finishing. And all this while maintaining safety in the form of continuity of the insulation system.

A beautiful showcase for years to come
The potential of Baumit CreativTop plaster gives more freedom to the architect in developing unconventional designs. Thanks to the availability of various tools and techniques for applying the plaster, as well as several variants of its grain size, it is possible to give an individual character to any project, providing an extraordinary aesthetic experience.
And let's not forget about the useful aspects of finishing the building - only the high quality of the materials used will allow the investor to enjoy a long-lasting decorative effect - resistant to weather conditions, dirt, as well as dangerous attacks of mold, fungi or other microorganisms. As of this year, Baumit CreativTop silicone modeling plaster comes in a new formula.
The product has been enriched with an innovative filler that, like coral, has thousands of tiny pores and an unusually large surface area. This extremely fine internal microstructure is responsible for the "drypor" effect. What does it consist in? We already explain.
Special hydrophobic properties of the plaster provide high resistance to moisture and cause water droplets to run off (the so-called pearl effect). Water, flowing down, collects dirt with it. In addition, due to the special structure of the filler, the remaining moisture spreads on the surface, facilitating its evaporation.
The ripple effect
As aresult, after rainy or foggy weather, the facade dries faster and consequently stays clean longer. The combination of these functions - water condensation and rapid drying - gives the facade surface a very high resistance to dirt and microorganism attacks, including algae, moss and fungus growth.
Facade - this is the most visible part of the building, which makes it gain character and stand out from the surrounding buildings. Choosing Baumit CreativTop modeled plaster, created on the basis of "drypor" technology, architects can create uncommon decorative effects, with the knowledge that the resulting effect will last for years.
