Exterior Insulation Finishing System
Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS), also known as External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS), is a multi-layered cladding system that provides insulation and waterproof surface for exterior walls to improve the insulation effect of buildings.
Provides Slip Resistance
Micelo modified EIFS adhesives provide the sl ip-resistance needed to hold the EPS or
XPS boards in place before anchor plates are installed.
Increases Adhesion Strength
Although mesh lath enables reinforcement, it also increases surface area, enabling the mortar adhesive to dry out quicker. The water retention provided by
Micelo can delay mortar drying thereby allowing higher adhesion strength to develop.
Prolongs Open Time
Some times corrections need to be made after EPS or XPS panels are placed.
Micelo can give workers prolonged open time to correct such mistakes without having to clean up old adhesive and applying new adhesives.
For insulating plasters,
Micelo’s shear-thinning behavior imparts pump-ability as well as good segregation control, especially these slightly larger insulating particles are much lighter than the fine sand and cement particles.
