Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems

Exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) are multilayered exterior wall systems that are used in both commercial and resi­dential construction. Sometimes referred to as synthetic stucco, the basic five primary components include a rigid insulation board, an adhesive to attach the insulation board to a suitable substrate, a reinforcing mesh that is embedded in a […]

Compressed-Straw Panels Product description

Compressed-straw panels are not new. The process for producing compressed agricultural fiber (CAF) panels was invented in Sweden in 1935 by Theodor Dieden and later developed into a commercial product in Britain under the name Stramit by Torsten Mossesson in the late 1940s. Although the original patents have expired on the technology for producing compressed […]

Cellular Glass Product description

Cellular glass insulation is a rigid roof insulation board composed of heat-fused, closed glass cells blown with hydrogen sulfide. Available for low-slope roofing systems, the boards typically have kraft paper facers applied to the surfaces after the material is formed. Cellular glass is compatible with bitumen and other adhe­sives and is fire-resistant. The board itself […]
