Insulation screw plug IPSD 80

Quick, flexible, no thermal bridge!

At the DACH + HOLZ International trade fair in Cologne, Apolo MEA presented the new innovative insulation screw plug IPSD 80 for direct fastening in external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS) for the first time.

This special plug allows an extremely fast fixing without a thermal bridge in ETICS.


The insulation screw plug IPSD 80 in combination with a 4,5×25 mm plumber screw is ideally suitable for the direct fastening of wall connection profiles (min. 8 mm clearance hole). It can also be used for light fixings like motion detectors.

The perfectly matched internal geometry allows easy screwing in of the plumber screw.

A unique feature is that the IPSD 80 can optionally be installed and removed directly into the insulation material with a TX25 bit. Another advantage is that only a small hole remains in the insulation material after disassembly.


The special plug IPSD 80 is made out of glass-fibre reinforced and aging resistant nylon. With a length of 80 mm, the IPSD 80 can be used for almost all ETICS facades. Suitable insulation materials are styrofoam boards, hard foam boards, polystyrene boards and wood fibre boards (to a limited extend also mineral wool boards). Due to the distinctive thread, the plug achieves a recommended load value of approx. 5 kg in polystyrene boards.


Due to its sharp drilling tip, the highly efficient insulation screw plug IPSD 80 can usually be installed in ETICS without pre-drilling.
