EIFS is an acronym that stands for Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems. It is a non-load bearing, composite cladding system that consists of a liquid applied weather resistant barrier (LA-WRB) (air and/or vapour barrier); an insulation board attached either adhesively, mechanically, or both, to the substrate; an integrally reinforced base coat; and a textured protective finish coat.
ADEX Basecoat is an adhesive for insulation and undercoating and comes in two different forms. Basecoat Drymix is a 'dry' polymer base that just needs water to be added to create a workable, buttery consistency. A pail of Basecoat is a 'wet' polymer base that requires adding cement at a 1:1 ratio.
