Kemox cellulose products are recommended for EIFS applications to enhance adhesion and cohesion, increase flexibility and impact resistance, improve surface abrasion resistance and avoid cracking and caking.

EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finish System), also known as ETICS (External Thermal Insulation Composite System), is a popular exterior cladding system used in the construction industry. It consists of a layer of insulation board attached to the exterior wall, followed by a base coat, reinforcement mesh, and a finish coat.


Why Chose Kemox™ Cellulose

EIFS/ETICS Description

EIFS/ETICS typically consists of several layers of different materials, including insulation board, base coat, reinforcement mesh, and finish coat. The base coat and finish coat are typically made from a mixture of Portland cement, sand, and various additives. These additives can include polymers, fibers, and other substances that improve the performance of the EIFS/ETICS.

Product application characteristics

Improved Workability

Kemox’s HPMC and HEMC products can improve the workability of EIFS/ETICS by enhancing the adhesion and water retention properties of the material. This can make it easier to apply and spread the EIFS/ETICS, resulting in a smoother and more uniform finish.

Increased Strength

Kemox’s HPMC, HEMC, and RDP products can improve the strength and durability of EIFS/ETICS. This can help to prevent cracking and other forms of damage, ensuring that the EIFS/ETICS lasts for longer periods of time.

Improved Weather Resistance

Kemox’s HEC and RDP products can improve the weather resistance of EIFS/ETICS, making it more resistant to water penetration and other forms of weather-related damage. 

Enhanced Fire Resistance

Kemox’s RDP products can enhance the fire resistance of EIFS/ETICS, making it more resistant to fire damage. This can be particularly beneficial in situations where fire safety is a concern.
