Silkolitt Exicco Lite

Silkolitt Exicco Lite is an NHBC-compliant drained cavity system that comprises the Silkolitt+ silicone rendered finish applied over the Alumasc Lite grey EPS insulation board. The Silkolitt Exicco Lite system from Alumasc Facades is typically used with new build steel frame constructions with heights of less than 18 m.

This BBA-approved system comprises the following components:

  • Silkolitt Silicone Render
  • Alumasc Silicone Primer
  • Alumasc Base Coat
  • Alumasc Scrim Reinforcement
  • Alumasc insulation fixing
  • Alumasc Lite grey EPS insulation
  • Alumasc Exicco Rail
  • Steel Frame

Key Features

Silkolitt Exicco Lite from Alumasc Facades is a lightweight and cost-effective drained cavity EWI system that is suitable for low-rise buildings. The drained cavity behind the insulation ensures that any interstitial moisture escapes without detriment to the performance of the system. The silkolitt+ silicone render provides a clean and contemporary finish with a wide choice of colours and textures available to suit the architect’s design requirements.

Key Performance Criteria:

  • Fire performance: B-s1,d0
  • Thermal performance: Typical U Values are:
    • 90 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.30 W/m2K
    • 120 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.25 W/m2K
    • 160 mm Lite insulation ~ 0.19 W/m2K

Accreditations

  • BBA Certificate 17/5471 PS1 – Grey EPS (Lite) onto steel frame
  • BBA Certificate 17/5471 PS2 – Grey EPS (Lite) onto timber frame

Aesthetics:

  • Choice of 8 standard colours, but available in any NCS colour reference
  • UV resistant colour pigments
  • Choice of 3 grain sizes – 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm or 3.0 mm – to offer a range of textural finishes
  • High water and dirt repellency that protects the façade against freeze-thaw failure & fungal growth
  • High tensile adhesion strength that prevents delamination and flaking
  • Good flexibility providing resistance against cracking and increasing durability

Applications

  • Framed substrates – timber or steel
  • New build projects
  • Low-rise properties (less than 18 m)
