 An Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS) can be defined as an energy efficient thermal wrapping applied to the exterior surfaces of a building. This thermal wrapping is then finished with a long-life, decorative and protective coating system. 

Terraco EIFS has been developed, tried and tested for use in both hot and cold climates and is proven to substantially reduce heating or cooling costs as well as allow for the use of lower specification heating or cooling systems.

                                         Where your home loses heat in cold climates

Terraco EIFS is currently in use in some of the most extreme climates on the planet – and is performing in temperatures ranging from +50°C to -60°C - year in, year out.

Terraco EIFS is an energy efficient system and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The versatility of Terraco EIFS makes it ideal to use on new buildings as well as renovation projects. As it is applied as an exterior system, it is highly suitable for upgrading older buildings to reduce operating costs while giving a new attractive finish.

The main three Terraco EIF systems are: 
Terraco EIFS Alpha                Uses expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulating boards
Terraco EIFS Polar                 Uses extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulating boards
Terraco EIFS Perma               Uses mineral wool (MW) insulating boards

           EPS           EPS Graphite Enhanced            XPS                            MW

• Styrofix (Adhesive)

Styrofix is a polymer modified dry-mix adhesive in the Terraco EIF System. Styrofix is user friendly and factory mixed, improving on-site quality control and promoting excellent adhesion between various substrates and the insulation boards.

• Styrobond DP (Basecoat)

Styrobond DP is a polymer modified drymix basecoat, applied over the insulation boards, which gives the system impact resistance and flexibility. The reinforcing glass fibre mesh is embedded into Styrobond DP prior to application of finish coats.
