The EPS Basecoat contains reinforcing fibres for extra strength and stability for EWI and render systems. It is also designed to be a dual-purpose adhesive. Firstly, it can be used to attach EPS boards to the wall, as a stronger substitute for the EWI-210 EPS adhesive. It can also be used within the mesh reinforcement layer of our EWI Pro EPS external wall insulation system.
The 220 Basecoat is used to fix EPS to substrates and also as part of the basecoat layer. Once dry, the adhesive provides a strong, flexible and waterproof layer. Due to the fact that the EPS Basecoat has a dual purpose, it allows installers to have only one type of bag on site, therefore reducing any wasted materials.
