The stainless steel construction EPS system offers superior thermal capabilities. EPS insulation can easily update the thermal performance of a substrate, including sheathing board substrates on stainless steel buildings. Use the EPS Basecoat Adhesive and Plastic Fixings with Universal Fixing Discs to secure the insulation to the substrate for a highly durable system, then finish off with a thin-coat-coloured render system.
Starter Track & Clip-on Profile
The starter track is attached to the substrate above the DPC. This provides a level surface for the insulation to sit on; it also protects the base of the insulation against damp.
The basecoat reinforcement layer is applied to the surface of the insulation boards and consists of either the EWI-220 EPS Basecoat or the EWI-225 Premium Basecoat. The reinforcement layer creates a smooth surface before applying the render.
Fibreglass reinforcing mesh is embedded within the basecoat adhesive to enhance the tensile strength and crack resistance of the render system.
The render primer is painted onto the reinforcement layer to ensure that the render adheres to the basecoat, and to contribute towards a durable render finish.
EWI Pro offer a range of coloured renders, all of which can enhance the external appearance of the property. Each render provides a long-lasting, crack-proof finish and come with a range of advantages for the building structure.
