The CaviteClad (XPS) Exterior Insulation and Finishing System (EIFS) is an exterior wall system made up of 50mm thick extruded polystyrene sheets fixed to timber or steel framing. CaviteClad (XPS) can also be bonded or mechanically fixed to masonry or concrete walls (Note: This application is outside the scope of the BRANZ Appraisal).

Once the building is closed in or sheathed with the XPS, the sheets are over-coated and reinforced with a range of specially blended proprietary cement or acrylic-based plasters before the walls are finished with a finishing plaster chosen from Specialized’s range and painted with a Dulux® Acratex® 100% acyclic paint system.
