Styrobond DP is a basecoat and adhesive for the Terraco EIFS Exterior Insulation Finishing System. It is easy to use by just adding water, improving on-site quality control. It shows excellent adhesion between substrate and expanded polystyrene boards when used as an adhesive. It also provides an excellent basecoat for embedding glass fibre mesh on top of which EIFS finishing coat is applied.

Areas Of Use
Styrobond DP is used as an adhesive between mineral substrates and expanded polystyrene boards (EPS boards). Styrobond DP is used as an embedding mortar applied over EPS (expanded polystyrene), XPS (extruded polystyrene) and mineral wool panels to embed the glass fibre mesh prior to application of finish coats.
Styrobond DP should be mixed on site with water in the ratio of approximately 4 parts Styrobond DP to 1 part water by weight, mixing with a high speed mixer for 3-5 minutes. Allow the material to stand for 10 minutes, remix and use. Mix only enough material for immediate use.
When used as an adhesive, apply to the EPS board and press into place using a level. Do not allow adhesive to skin before fixing in place. When used as an embedding mortar, apply a coat of Styrobond DP mix to the EPS board and embed the mesh using a trowel. Apply another coat of mix to the surface to ensure full cover of the mesh and an overall thickness of approximately 3mm.
