Building board Balco

The wedi Balco building board consists of a blue core made from extruded polystyrene rigid foam; which is reinforced with glass-fibre (with an alkali-resistant finish); and then coated on both sides with a special frost-resistant cement coating. The complete system includes the building board Balco; a sealing set which is used to seal Balco board and wall joints; and a special primer (for use on bituminous sheets).


By insulating, sealant and decoupling at the same time the wedi Baclo building board can be applied to almost all balcony substructures; it is the ideal backboard for tiling in outdoor environments.


Whether it's for balconies, terraces or outdoor stairs, the wedi Balco building board is the perfect solution for new constructions and renovations.



  • for balconies and terraces with and without a slope

  • waterproof

  • thermally insulating

  • Frost-resistant

  • Coated on both sides with special cement coating with high tensile glass fibre reinforcement

  • Sanded

  • Increased concentrated load capacity

Areas of use Balco

With its special properties, the uses of the wedi building board Balco are versatile:

  • As a carrier element for laying tiles, slabs and natural stone floor coverings by using the thin-bed method
  • Moisture protection
  • Effective heat insulation
  • Composite sealing with tiles, slabs and natural stone on floors (directly and indirectly loaded areas outdoors)
  • wedi building board Balco is approved for exterior use as a seal on balconies and terraces. When sealing terraces over heated living areas, sealing materials complying with DN 18195 should be used. When using wedi Balco building board (10 mm and over), a ceramic finish can be applied on top of the boards and sealing layer in accordance with the standards. Wheeled loads with high concentrated loads are not permitted..
