Standard Practice for Application of Class PB Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) and EIFS with Drainage
|Publication Date:||15 July 2009|
This practice covers the minimum requirements and procedures for field or prefabricated application of Class PB Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) and EIFS with Drainage. Class PB EIFS are systems applied over insulation board, in which the base coat ranges from not less than 1⁄16 in. (1.6 mm) to 1⁄4 in. (6.4 mm) in dry thickness, depending upon the number of nonmetallic reinforcing mesh layers encapsulated in the base coat (see Specification E 2568). The base coat is then covered with a finish coat of varying thickness in a variety of textures and colors. EIFS with Drainage provides a mechanism to drain incidental moisture
