Theoretical foundations and the results of preliminary experimental studies related to the design of the heat insulation plastering material are considered. The main problem is to provide heat-insulating properties and strength characteristics of the appropriate level required. The solution is based on the percolation theory, allowing to determine the proportion of thermal insulating filler to interrupt most of thermal paths, and ideas of structural optimization, allowing to increase the strength of the material due to the selection of particle size of the basic components - gypsum and perlite powder, as well as by the introduction of mineral and organic additives. Methodological techniques developed in the implementation of these directions are applicable for other tasks of building materials science.
