    Basecoat for LaHabra EIFS

    Adhesive to laminate EPS to listed substrates

    Applied without the addition of cement

    Mixed on site with water 

    Excellent workability


    EPS adhesive for the following substrates: - Exterior grade gypsum sheathing - Glass mat gypsum sheathing - Masonry, concrete, and cement board - EPS - Parex USA WeatherSeal Spray & Roll-On and WeatherSeal Trowel-On Water Resistive Barrier Coatings n Basecoat for NuTech Stucco and other Architectural Coatings and Finishes (ACF). n Leveler and filler for masonry, concrete, stucco surfaces. For this application only, Insul-bond Basecoat & Adhesive can be built up to 1/4 in. (6mm) thick in a single pass.

    COMPOSITION: n Binder base: Copolymer compatible with portland cement n Water base: VOC-Compliant n Color: Light gray

    COVERAGE: Depending on the condition of the substrate and method of application, approximate coverages per bag are: n As an adhesive: 5/16 in. (8mm) notched trowel: 130-140 ft 2 (12.1-13.0 m2 ) 5/8 in. (16mm) notched trowel: 90-100 ft 2 (8.4-9.3 m2 ) 1/2 in. (12.7mm) notched trowel: 110-120 ft 2 (10.2-11.2 m2 ) n As a Basecoat to embed 355 Parex USA Standard Mesh: 75-95 ft 2 (7.0-8.8 m2 ) n As a double-layer basecoat to embed 355 Parex USA Standard Mesh and plus 358.20 Ultra High Impact Mesh: 35-55 ft 2 (3.3-5.1 sq. m2 ) n As a leveler, coverage depends upon the thickness applied.

    CONTAINER: 50 lbs. (22.7 kgs.) net weight in multiwall moistureresistant bags. n Storage: Store off the ground and protect from sun and moisture n Shelf life: 12 months if properly stored in the original unopened container.

    WORKING TIME: Pot life is 1–2 hours after water has been added. Open time is affected by humidity and temperature.

    DRYING TIME: Full adhesive bond strength is reachedafter 1–4 days, depending on humidity and temperature. Dries within 24 hours under normal drying conditions [70ºF (21ºC), 50% RH]. Cold and/or humid weather may extend drying time. Parex USA Accel-Pak may be added to decrease drying time. See Data sheet for more information.

    CLEAN-UP: Water-soluble prior to drying. Clean tools and containers with water before mixture sets.

    SURFACE PREPARATION: n Planar irregularities are limited to 1/4 in. (6mm) or less in a 4 ft. (1.22 m) radius. Surface irregularities are limited to 1/4 in. (6mm) or less for masonry and concrete and 1/8 in. (3mm) or less for sheathing. n Irregular and uneven surface should be filled with Level Coat or Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive. n Remove surface contaminants such as dust or dirt without damaging the substrate. n Painted substrates must have the paint removed with methods that result in no more than 10% of the remaining surface having paint. n For additional options for surface preparation, contact Parex USA Technical Support.

    MIXING: n Use clean equipment for mixing and preparation. n Add 5-6 quarts (4.7-5.7 L) of cool clean potable water to a 5 gal pail. Add half of the amount of Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive and mix to a homogenous consistency using a heavy-duty 1/2 in. (13mm) drill with a rust-free paddle at 400-500 rpm. Then add the remaining half and mix until consistent. n Small amounts of cool clean potable water may be added to adjust workability. n Let the mixture stand for five minutes after initial mixing, then stir again, adding small amounts of water for workability once only. n LaHabra Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive should be used immediately after mixing. n Half batches may be mixed for convenience. n Only Parex USA approved additives can be added to this product.

    APPLICATION: n Read the entire label before using this product. n Adhesive Application: Apply the Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive to the entire surface on one face of the insulation board, using a 5/8 in. (16mm) notched trowel for masonry and concrete, or a 1/2-in. notched trowel or a 5/16 in. (8mm) notched trowel for sheathing. The adhesive ribbons should be of uniform thickness, run vertically when positioned on the wall (parallel to the 2 ft. [61 cm] board dimension), and reach the perimeter of the insulation board. To ensure high initial grab and uniform adhesive contact, apply insulation board to the wall with firm pressure to the entire surface. Apply sufficient pressure to flatten adhesive ridges. Glass mat sheathing requires extra pressure. n Basecoat Application: Rasp EPS board after 24 hours and when adhesive has fully cured and bonded. Using a stainless steel trowel, apply the Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive mixture to the rasped surface of the insulation board to a uniform thickness of 1/16 - 3/32 in. (1.5 - 2.4mm). Embed the Parex USA reinforcing mesh immediately in the wet Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive mixture. Smooth the surface of the Insul-Bond Base Coat & Adhesive mixture with a trowel until the reinforcing mesh is fully embedded and the basecoat thickness is approximately 1/16 in. (1.5mm). The color of the reinforcing mesh should not be visible at the surface of the Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive material. A slight pattern of the mesh is acceptable, due to shrinkage of the cementitious Basecoat upon drying. n As a leveler or filler: Apply Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive and trowel to a smooth, uniform surface. Maximum thickness in a single application should be no more than 1/4 in. (6mm).

    LIMITATIONS: n Ambient and surface temperature must be 40°F (4°C) or higher during application and curing time. Provide supplemental heat and protection from precipitation as needed. n Use only on surfaces that are sound, clean, dry, unpainted (10% or less) and free from any residue which may affect the ability of the Insul-Bond Basecoat & Adhesive to bond to the surface. n Application in direct sunlight in hot weather will significantly reduce open time for embedding Parex USA reinforcing mesh and smoothing the surface. n Do not use as a leveler for EPS. Rasp EPS level.
