This specification covers PB Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS) defined as an exterior, non-bearing wall covering providing a weather-resistant exterior wall envelope on walls required to be combustible or noncombustible, fireresistance-rated or nonfire-resistance-rated. Further, PB EIFS is a system described as being applied over insulation board, an adhesive or mechanical attachment of the insulation board to a substrate, or both, glass fiber reinforcing mesh, a base coat on the face of the insulation board, and a textured protective finish coat. The following tests shall be performed in accordance to the following test methods: accelerated weathering; freeze/thaw; salt spray resistance; tensile bond adhesion; water penetration; water resistance; physical properties and requirements for EPS; alkali resistance of reinforcing mesh; fire endurance; full-scale multi-story fire test; and ignition resistance.

This standard is referenced in the 2012 International Building Code® and the International Residential Code®.
