The ADEX-VCA system is a moisture-managed exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) that incorporates a secondary liquid applied weather resistive barrier (LA-WRB) and a flat EPS insulation board. The vertical channels of adhesive that attach the EPS insulation board provide a capillary break for moisture to mitigate out of the system.


  • Favourably evaluated by CCMC (12913-R).
  • ADEX EPS-FLAT insulation provides a uniform blanket of continuous insulation (CI); reduces energy use.
  • The liquid applied weather resistive barrier (LA-WRB) provides seamless protection of the building envelope against air and moisture infiltration.
  • The system is in full compliance with CAN/ULC-S716 “Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) ”.
  • The ADEX -VCA system, or its major components meet the following non-combustibility standards:
    • CAN/ULC-S134: Fire Test of Exterior Wall Assemblies;
    • CAN/ULC-S114: Method of Test for Determination of Non-Combustibility in Building Materials;
    • CAN/ULC-S101: Fire Endurance Tests of Building Construction and Materials.


  • EPS-FLAT continuous insulation (CI).
  • Seamless moisture protection.
  • Dual barrier.
  • Vertical ribbon adhesive fastening.
  • Non-combustible basecoat.
  • CCMC evaluated (12913-R).
  • Unlimited colour selection.


  • Continuous insulation; reduces energy use.
  • Seals the building envelope and ensures seamless protection of the substrate.
  • Allows for the drainage of incidental moisture.
  • Lightweight, durable and flexible.
  • Architectural design flexibility.
  • Non-combustible rated as per the National Building Code.
