The ADEX-ABS system is a variation of our popular ADEX-RS exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) but with an adhered brick, tile, or thin-stone veneer facing. The system incorporates a secondary weather resistant barrier (LA-WRB), mechanical and adhesive fastening, and a geometrically designed insulation board (EPS-GD) with a built-in 10mm drainage plane.


  • Allows the use of multiple cladding finishes over the same continuous layer of insulation and moisture protection.
  • ADEX EPS-GD insulation provides a uniform blanket of continuous insulation (CI); reduces energy use.
  • 10mm drainage cavity ensures evacuation of incidental moisture.
  • The liquid applied weather resistive barrier (LA-WRB) provides seamless protection of the building envelope against air and moisture infiltration.


  • EPS-GD continuous insulation (CI).
  • Seamless moisture protection.
  • Dual barrier.
  • Vertical ribbon fastening and mechanical fasteners.
  • Non-combustible basecoat.
  • Thin stone, tile or brick veneer finish.


  • Provides a monolithic blanket of insulation; reduces energy use.
  • Seals the building envelope and ensures seamless protection of the substrate
  • Allows for the drainage of incidental moisture.
  • Durable.
  • Architectural design flexibility.
