External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS/EIFS)
Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS), also known as External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS), is a type of cladding system that provides exterior walls with an insulated finished surface and waterproofing in an integrated composite material system. The Exterior Insulation Finishing System / External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems can be applied to the exterior surfaces of a building which is then finished with a long-life, decorative and protective wall coating that can be installed on any type of construction.
The thermal insulation system generally includes adhesive mortars and the embedding mortars used for surface protection of the insulation board.
MikaZone™ Cellulose Ether can be widely used for adhesive mortars and the embedding mortars in ETICS. It can make mortars have the appropriate consistency, not sagging, not sticky to the trowel in use, feel light and smooth during operation, easy to smear with interruption and maintain the finished patterns.
Benefit from the excellent water retention property, MikaZone™ Cellulose Ether can ensure that workers have enough time to embed glass mesh cloth into the wet mortar to avoid peeling during plastering. Besides, it can improve workability and enhance bond strength.
