Knockdown Knives are manufactured of high-quality lexan that is both flexible
and durable. Designed for sharp or rounded corners with one rounded edge
and one squared off edge, the knives are for use with EIFS, as well as drywall.
Reduced Dust Stucco: LaHabra Stucco
Incorporating Dust Less
Technology, this specially-formulated product was developed to reduce the
amount of dust produced when mixed, making it environmentally responsible and
creating healthier working conditions. This reformulation in stucco allows it
to go on the wall with ease allowing the applicator more control over
application and reducing arm fatigue. The stucco also requires less water
during the mixing process reducing the impact on natural resources.
Exterior Finish: Master Wall
can be used to create any decorative look. The company’s finishes range from
traditional Spanish styles, knockdowns or stencil patterns to the delicately
mottled look of a limestone. It is available in the company’s Superior DPR
formula and as an elastomeric version in almost any color. Excel mildew
protection or silicone can be added without reducing the polymer content.
Water deflection and Ventilation System: Benjamin Obdyke Inc.
is specifically designed for use behind manufactured stone, stucco, EIFS and
brick to keep exterior walls dry and free from moisture that causes
deterioration due to mold and rot. When installed, it creates a ventilation
cavity between the vapor barrier and the exterior wall. The system is designed to extend the service
life of wall components by creating the necessary air space in a rainscreen
wall assembly. Its patented, three-dimensional matrix manages water entry by
allowing it to enter and exit, drains away bulk water that does seep in behind
cladding, and speeds drying of moisture that accumulates in the interior wall
Water-Resistive Barrier: Dryvit Systems Inc.
DMS is a dry-bagged product designed to help contractors be more productive,
efficient and profitable by combining two critical steps-the water-resistive
protection for the substrate and the adhesive to secure the expanded
polystyrene insulation board to the wall-all in one. A patent-pending
notched trowel provides a seamless, liquid applied water-resistive barrier to
protect the substrate while creating vertical ribbons for drainage and to
adhere the insulation board.
