EWI Pro EWI-220 EPS Adhesive and Basecoat Render 25kg is a cement based adhesive manufactured from a mixture of Portland cement, texturing aggregate, mineral fillers and hydrated lime used to fix EPS insulation to substrates and also as part of the basecoat render reinforcement layer.
Cement Based Basecoat EWI-220 is a grey dry mix powder used to embed in the fibreglass mesh as part of the reinforcement layer on polystyrene (EPS) thermal insulation within External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems.
EWI Pro EPS Basecoat is a highly durable, elastic, quick drying and frost resistant base coat that can be used as a bedding adhesive to stick EPS boards to a wide range of substrates.
The presence of polymer-modified binders within the adhesive deliver strong adhesion, better flexibility, higher crack resistance and improved durability of the EWI-220 product.
EWI-220 EPS Adhesive and Basecoat Render comes as a dry mix powder in 25kg bags and should be mixed with 5.8 litres of clean cool water.
The average drying time for the EPS bedding adhesive is 12-48 hours depending on weather conditions.
The drying period may be significantly longer in low temperature and high relative humidity.
Nominal thickness: 4mm - 10mm
EWI-220 Basecoat & Adhesive: approx. coverage 5m2
Mixing time: approx. 5-10 minutes
Mixing ratio: 5.8 – 6.0 litres per 25kg bag
Application: by hawk and trowel
Consistency: dry mix powder
· When using the EWI-220 as a bedding adhesive, applying the adhesive to the back of the EPS insulation board using an appropriate trowel.
· For uneven substrates, we recommend applying the adhesive to the perimeter of the insulation board with 3 additional dabs across the middle of the board.
· For flat substrates, you can apply the adhesive to the entirety of the insulation board using a notched trowel.
· Allow the adhesive to dry completely before attempting to install the mechanical fixings.
· When using the EWI-220 as a basecoat adhesive, apply the adhesive to the insulation board using a 10mm notched trowel.
· Before drying, fibreglass mesh needs to be embedded within the basecoat adhesive.
· Works must be protected from rain, snow, strong winds and direct sunlight.
Substrate Preparation for EWI-220 EPS Basecoat and Adhesive:
· When using the EWI-220 Basecoat as a bedding adhesive for EPS insulation, ensure the surface is clean and free from any debris.
· For uneven surfaces, consider using the EWI260 Levelling Mortar, which can be applied up to a thickness of 50mm to level out the substrate.
· If the surface is dusty prior to starting the installation process, then consider using a jet wash first before coating the surface with the EWI-301 Substrate Primer.
· For painted surfaces, check for structural stability first, then consider using EWI-310 Universal Primer, which will create an abrasive surface ready for the EWI-220 Basecoat adhesive to key onto.
· When using the EWI-220 Basecoat as part of the basecoat / reinforcement layer, ensure the insulation boards are level prior to application.
EWI-220 Certification and Standards:
· PN-C-81913:1998 Dispersion paints for façade painting.
· European Technical Approvals ETA – 15/0576 and ETA – 15/0575.
· BBA Approval Inspection Testing Certificate 18/5503.

Alternatively, you can work it out yourself quickly and easily: to get cost per meter square please divide price shown in orange area by ''Required area (m2)'' Example price of £28.80 divided by board coverage 2.88m2 = cost of £10.00 per m2.
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.
