Commercial Applications

Market: Walls

Application: Exterior Insulation Finish Systems (EIFS)

 

Exterior Insulation Finish System (EIFS) is an exterior cladding system featuring Neopor® GPS. The system uses a secondary air/water-resistive barrier and channels created by the trowel pattern of the adhesive to provide a cost-effective added level of protection of the sheathing and cavity against moisture and air intrusion. It offers design flexibility, aesthetic appeal and energy savings. Integrated system components include reinforced air/water-resistive barrier, adhesive, Neopor GPS insulation board, reinforced base coat and 100% acrylic polymer finish. Finishes are available in a limitless color selection. Performance enhancement options include increased resistance to dirt pick-up and mildew, protection against high impact, and specialty finishes that create stone-like, metallic or mottled stucco appearances.

 

For exterior walls in new and retrofit commercial, institutional and residential construction when a continuous high effective R-value is needed to meet energy or eco-efficiency standards, and/or when a rainscreen is desired or required to satisfy code issues related to drainage, and where high wind-load requirements dictate the use of adhesive attachment.

 

Advantages

  • Highly energy efficient
  • Incorporates a monolithic secondary air/water-resistive barrier
  • Easy to specify a design that meets ASHRAE design standards and IGCC/IECC code requirements for the use of continuous insulation
