Internal Thermal Breaks
Why Parex EIFS? Parex has been producing Exterior Insulating and Finishing (EIF) systems for over 30 years and has the manufacturing and technical expertise to design enduring and efficient systems for any application. From the latest acrylic finish technologies to high performance air and moisture barriers,
Fewer Thermal Breaks
Sample of thermal insulation
Parex is at the leading edge of product development, giving designers and owners confidence that Parex systems will offer unparallel efficiency, value and protection.
Internal Thermal Insulation
External Thermal Insulation
Thermal bridges, such as floor and wall supports, studs and balconies, can drain energy from the interior of the building, resulting in low efficiency. EIFS is the only cladding that provides the building with a completely enclosed envelope, eliminating many of these thermal breaks and the resulting energy loss. Climate controlled air is retained, enabling the buildingâ€™s HVAC system to work more efficiently to maintain the desired air temperature and therefore saving money.
Parex EIFS and LEED
Parex EIF systems can be a key contributor to LEED certification at any level. Exterior Insulation Systems are one of the most flexible and innovative ways to achieve improved energy efficiency. Many of our products qualify toward design innovation and all of our products are low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Our materials are manufactured locally to the markets
When warm air meets a cold surface the result can be condensation. This is commonly seen on the outside on the glass of a cold beverage. The location where the condensation occurs is called the dew point. While not an issue on a drinking glass, this same phenomenon becomes an issue when it occurs inside your wall assembly. Traditional claddings may lead to condensation inside the wall cavity, potentially causing deterioration and damage of building materials. Parex EIFS potentially reduces the risk of a dew point inside the wall cavity. Moving the insulation to the outside of the building keeps surfaces inside the wall cavity warm so that condensation does not form on them.
they are used in and are packaged and shipped using recycled materials. We would be pleased to work with you to determine the specific contribution that Parex products can make toward LEED certification of your project.

Superior U-Value With lower U-Values increasingly required by building regulations and with owners looking for reduced operating costs, designers need effective proven ways to meet lower U-Value targets. Parex EIF systems offer lower U-Values through a variety of insulation types and efficiencies.
Whatever your performance requirement, Parex can help you meet the target as simply and efficiently as possible.

Versatile Design Quite simply, Parex EIFS is the most versatile exterior cladding on the market today. The ability to effectively mimic the look of virtually any exterior cladding and an
unlimited range of textures, colors, and shapes allows multiple designs utilizing the same exterior cladding.
Low Maintenance Parex EIFS uses the highest quality raw materials for all of its products. This commitment to quality ensures that the materials on your building will perform as designed for a long time. Parex EIFS also uses 100% acrylic polymers with special dirt resistant surface toughness in its finishes. This and approved mildew and algae resistance additives, limit the effect that mold and other pollutants
AIR and Moisture Barrier can have on your Parex finish. You can be confident that the aesthetic appeal of your building will stand up to the elements. Parex EIFS Systems are easily cleaned with a low power pressure washer and mild detergent. This simple maintenance step increases the life of the EIFS while refreshing the beauty of your building.
Air movement is another source of energy loss. As conditioned air escapes through the exterior walls, energy efficiency drops and costs rise. Estimates show that up to 30% of energy loss comes from air movement. A Parex air and moisture barrier offers a proven strategy for reducing air movement and energy wall cavity from the exterior, protecting the building.
base coat and EPS Insulation. If additional protection is required, Parex offers the latest drainage EIFS. If any moisture were to make ingress behind the EPS, it would drain from the system through vertical channels of adhesive. The end result is a wall system that provides superior insulation and protection from moisture.
Parex EIFS protects your building from moisture by providing a barrier of finish,
Parex EIFS is a high value exterior cladding. This lightweight system provides an opportunity to reduce investment in structural components that may be required for heavier cladding alternatives, thus lowering building costs.

Our best drainage EIF system. The system incorporates vertical ribbons of adhesive to provide an optimal drainage plane. In addition to the vertical ribbons, this system makes use of our Parex 495 keyGuard waterproof membrane/air barrier. It provides protection against incidental moisture and acts as an air barrier. The air barrier takes the already energy efficient EIFS and gives it a boost by limiting air flow of yet remaining vapor permeable.

Parex EIFS Materials Moisture Protection (For WaterMaster Assemblies)
495 KeyGuard: the industry leading waterproof membrane & air barrier for use as a water-resistive barrier under Parex Standard WaterMaster and systems. Parex 495 KeyGuard is easier to apply and makes applicators more efficient than other roll-on barriers because one product treats both thefield and board joints.
Base Coat & Adhesive
121 Dry: a factory controlled blend of proprietary raw materials. 121 Dry is used as an adhesive to adhere EPS to approved substrates and as a basecoat for mesh embedment. 121 Dry is packaged in a bag and requires only water to be added.
made of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) insulation board provides excellent thermal protection. Made under third party quality control, meets all building codes.
coated fiberglass that is alkali resistant embedded in base coat (listed above) and required on all Parex EIFS to provide strength and flexibility to the EIFS. Mesh is available in varying weights to provide different levels of impact resistance.
