Euromix Polystyrene

Acrylic Finishing System

 Euromix™ offers a wide range of different render and texture solutions for finishing over polystyrene (EPS) walling systems. 

Finishing System Summary

Euroset recommends that any render, texture and paint finishing system applied over fibre cement (EPS) walling should be designed and applied in such a way as to;

Hide most sheet surface imperfections.

Minimise the appearance of minor structural imperfections, misalignment of walls, etc. 

Provide a render/texture finish that is sufficiently thick/strong to be resistant to impact forces while still being able to flex with the EPS. 

There are several Euromix products that can be applied in a number of different systems to achieve the above finish. 

The key components of such systems are summarised as;

Substrate preparation, patching & fixing of trims.

Bedding render coat. 

Base render coat.

Finishing render coat.

Texture coat.

Paint coat – optional.
