Glass EIFS

Robust and reliable xSBR impregnation binders for EIFS glass mesh fabric

In modern External Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS), glass mesh fabric is the material of choice to provide mechanical stability against thermal shrinkage and expansion for outdoor facade insulation. In combination with the other elements of the EIFS - insulation boards, adhesion mortars and top render/plaster - the mesh forms a system that creates an insulated, water-resistant, finished surface for residential and commercial buildings that is energy efficient and allows you to meet construction energy codes. In addition, an EIFS offers the additional benefits of durability, moisture control, design flexibility and aesthetics.

Synthomer is the market-leader for EIFS mesh fabric binders and supplies a broad range of Litex S products for open mesh impregnation. From soft to stiff touch and anything in between, our products can be tailored to provide your desired feel to the finished glass fibre fabric. In addition, our products allow compliance with the ETAG 004 standard for use in certified EIFS.
