EIFS jointing compounds have been specifically designed for use in the on-site installation and finishing of polystyrene wall and fencing panels, and are available now from Astec Paints Australasia .

Consisting of a polymer and silicate modified, mineral based adhesive, these jointing compounds can also be used as a skim coat.

These compounds are waterproof, hard and yet flexible, providing greater adhesion to foam surfaces than the cohesive strength of the foam itself.

Supplied in a 20kg paper sack, they are prepared on-site by simply adding clean, fresh water to provide a smooth, high slump paste that requires no additional polymer additives for direct use.

EIFS compounds are suited for use on:

  • impact coated foam panels
  • polystyrene foam; and
  • cast foam.
