Application Over ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) Foam Block Systems

The foam block systems are growing dramatically across the USA. They are an excellent application for our Total Wall EIFS. All applications over the foam block systems are fully warranted by Total Wall when installed according to Total Wall specifications.

There are three basic types of blocks on the market, which we will talk about. One type has metal or plastic strips/tabs on the surface of the block wall and is made from EPS. The second type has no tabs or the tabs are set back 1/4” to 1/2” below the surface of the block and are made from EPS. The third type has tabs and is made from extruded polystyrene.

There are a few options regarding how these systems can be coated with Total Wall products.

The approved system over the EPS Blocks and Extruded Polystyrene blocks with tabs is the One Coat or Two Coat class Total Barrier PB System. The approved system over EPS Blocks with no tabs is also our Total Barrier PB System.
