Healthy building material with superior properties: Clay is one of the oldest building materials in the world and has found its way into modern, ecological building for several decades. Many builders, architects and craftsmen appreciate clay plaster as a reliable and healthy building material. Clay has many very good properties: it regulates indoor air humidity better than other materials, it is regionally available, natural and easy to work with because it is kind to the skin and dries instead of setting.
Clay plaster and the WEM systems - a perfect combination! As a heavy material, clay is not only a good sound insulator, but also stores heat. As a result, clay walls can store energy in winter in combination with wall heating or through the low sun. The warmth is then released back into the room. In summer, cold water can be conducted through the pipes. Thereby, the solid, cooled clay walls gently regulate the temperature in the rooms without draughts or noise.
The WEM Clay system includes Clay Panels, clay universal plaster, clay fine plaster, reinforcement fabric, fine and granular primer as well as Clay paint.
WEM has specialised in the production of a range of clay products. Their development incorporates the experience gained from more than 6,000 building projects, many collaborations and countless tests, trials and measurements. In addition to the WEM Climate panels (with integrated heating pipes) for walls and ceilings, there are clay panels as levelling and finishing boards for all areas of application. The WEM clay plasters are DIN-tested, can be processed very well and are perfectly adapted for use with wall heating. Of course, they are just as suitable for all surfaces without heating. The well-covering, ecological WEM clay paint in 9 harmonious shades is suitable for finishing the finished surfaces.
Clay plaster regulates air humidity. Clay plasters in larger application thicknesses have a decisive influence on the indoor room climate. They are highly diffusible. This means that they can absorb a lot of moisture from the air and release it again when the room air is dry. This ability sets clay apart from all other (conventional) plaster materials. In the league of natural building materials used in ecological house building, clay plays right at the top. So if you want to build ecologically and live healthily, you are on the safe side with WEM clay plaster, clay panels and clay paint.

The WEM clay universal plaster is an all-rounder - it can be applied in one operation in a thickness of 5 - 23 mm. It is therefore equally suitable for plastering our climate registers and the climate pipe system as well as for interior plastering without wall heating.
The WEM clay fine finish plaster is used to design fine surfaces. It is applied as the last layer on top of the clay universal plaster or used to plaster the climate panels and clay panels.
The solvent-free, odourless WEM clay paint matches perfectly to the WEM clay plasters and provides high coverage. The surface remains open to diffusion and retains the properties of the clay.
Clay paint is a very popular, easy-to-use wall and ceiling paint. WEM FarbTon clay paint is a water-soluble, ecological paint without preservatives and solvents. It dries quickly and is odourless. With its high opacity, WEM clay paint is ideally suited for clay plaster, lime plaster and other mineral substrates. The ingredients are coloured clays and loams in addition to fine marble flours and cellulose. With its good ecological properties, clay paint is an excellent match for the products and techniques used in sustainable building with natural building materials.
Clay and wood complement each other perfectly as building materials. Mankind has always built with wood and clay. The long durability of buildings (e.g. hundreds of years old half-timbered houses in Germany) is also based on this combination. Today, clay plaster, wall and ceiling heating made of clay are also readily and successfully used in wooden houses. In many eco-houses, they ensure a comfortable, healthy indoor climate and the well-being of all occupants.
"... which we then plastered with clay universal plaster.
This worked excellently with a plastering machine, although of course the unpleasant corners had to be plastered by hand. We were really thrilled with the final clay fine plaster: it has a beautiful and even structure..."
"We bought an old building and decided on WEM wall heating in combination with lime and clay plasters. We had heard that the radiant heat was particularly pleasant, but we couldn't quite imagine it beforehand. It helped us that WEM informed us in advance..."
