How to install artificial stone on the EIFS façade system?
Facade of aerated concrete 400mm d500, facade foam Knauf 70mm glued and nailed on the dowels, made a reinforcing layer with a mesh 165g. It was all prepared for decorative plaster, but decided to partially make facing artificial stone.
I've read that for such coverage is necessary to perform 2 reinforcing layer: the first with a mesh and dubbing and the second with a grid 165g overlapping, and then the stone on the adhesive. What to do in my case, if there is already a layer of mesh 165g? Make a second layer of paneling and do it with an overlap?
There are also welded columns lined with 16mm cement-wood sheets. On them, what reinforcing layer to do or just glue immediately stone?
A cladding system is different from a finishing plaster system.
Anything you've said is out of line with the technology.
The differences are:
- - A different adhesive for gluing the insulation
- - different glue for the base layer
- - The thickness of the base layer is greater
- - mesh ONE!
- - dowelling through the mesh
Cement-bonded particleboard – why is it not necessary to make a base layer on it?
