Elsek Cladding is patented specifically for the required preference on the African Continent to create a stronger and more solid wall panel. This type of cladding is directly applied on the surface of the Fire retardant E.P.S. ( Expanded Polystyrene Styrofoam ) and its strength equals that of concrete. To do this type of cladding two applications are made:-
- The first application is applied by spraying or throwing (by man power) a very light layer of Elsek’s special chemical / concrete mixture which bonds to the EPS surface. The chemical strength of the first application is stronger than the second application. We will give you mixture ratio of the sand, cement and the chemical during the construction period.
- After this dries (approximately within 5 days) the second application has to be made. This second coat is simple plastering mixture of the sand and cement and can be very thick or thin depending on the customer requirements.
