FF-EPS ETICS was designed to be us as a foundation for render. The panels are aged at the plant and provide an optimal base for a rendering coat. The FF-EPS ETICS products have been tested for compatibility and weathering with the products of Alsecco and STO, among others, by Tampere University of Technology (TTY). The material used for the gray FF-EPS contains graphite, and its thermal conductivity is λDeclared 0.031 W/mK, which is significantly higher than that of the traditional white EPS.
The panels have a tongue and groove profile on all sides, and they are available in thicknesses ranging from 100 to 400 mm, of which 100, 180, and 250 mm options are available off the shelf. The size of the panels is 600 x 1,200 mm, which significantly facilitates handling and installation. The short-term compressive strength of FF-EPS ETICS panels is 60 kPa. Due to the fire retardant used in the FF-EPS ETICS products, their fire class is E.
