Brick Slips Special Adhesive WHITE Elastolith (15kg Tub) is a ready-to-use Brick Slip dispersion adhesive and grout made from mineral raw materials used for laying and securing brick slips to your interior and exterior walls.
This Adhesive is an extremely strong and easy to apply product specifically designed for Elastolith Brick Slips, available in 4 most popular colours: White, Cement Grey, Light Grey and Anthracite.
Brick Slips Special Adhesive is only suitable for laying Elastolith brick slips, the adhesive hardens after processing and forms a single layer with the brick slip.
The adhesive can be used on any firm, clean and dry surface that is able to take the load, free of stresses and slightly absorbent.
Using a layer to promote adhesion (a primer) may be required in some cases.
Highly absorbent surfaces must be pre-treated with a absorbency-regulating primer.
Elastolith systems require no special tools, and you can install brick slips even if you are an inexperienced DIY-er.
Brick Slips Adhesive White Colour Elastolith (also doubles up as grout) 15kg Tub should cover approx. 6m2.
Application: EWI – External Wall Insulation systems, Facade design
Elastolith Special Brick Slip Adhesive Installation:
· Special Adhesive is applied vertically using a toothed trowel: layer thickness approx. 1.5 to 2.0 mm.
· Depending on the circumstances (temperature, air humidity, etc.), it should not be applied to large surfaces in order to prevent film formation on the adhesive layer.
· The brick slip is pressed into the wet adhesive with a slight sliding movement.
· The brick slip must be fully embedded in the adhesive.
· This can be checked by removing a tiling strip from the facade and checking that the back of the brick slip is fully covered with adhesive.
· The adhesive at the joins should be smoothed off with a slightly damp brush immediately after installation.
· The head (outer) joins are smoothed first, after which the bed (inner) joins are smoothed with a long stroke.
· Make sure that sufficient adhesive is in contact with the sides of the brick slip so that water cannot get behind it.
· When used outside, the brick slips must be protected against wind and rain for at least 3 days after laying (the time required depends on the temperature and air humidity).
· Can be used on interior and exterior walls.
Elastolith Brick Slips and Corner Brick Slip Installation:
· Use a notched trowel (4 mm) to spread the special brick slip adhesive to approximately 1sq.metre area.
· Used to embed the brick slips, you should also aim to have a layer of adhesive approximately 2mm thick.
· Then, fix the brick slips to the wall in a staggered formation (like standard brickwork) with a 10mm gap between vertical and horizontal bricks.
· Elastolith brick slips can be bent around corners with minimal fuss and cut with a sharp pair of scissors.
· Once the bricks are all installed, a 10mm brush can be used to ‘grout’ the brickwork.
· Ideally, wet the brush slightly and brush the grout to smooth it out.

No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.
4 TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST INSULATION INSTALLER
1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio
It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.
Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.
3. Compare prices
Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price.
4. Word of Mouth
The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.
Whether you require a wall, cladding, external wall, loft or floor insulation fitted, you can find and hire your local insulation installers from popular UK web pages. A simple internet search will return thousands of potential installers near your area.
