Dryvit Outsulation - the original continuous insulation (CI). This family of EIFS offered by Dryvit includes: substrate air/moisture protection, drainage for incidental rain penetration, and a durable finish system that can be enhanced to meet your needs - Dryvit Outsulation is a high-performance cladding solution.
Adhesive, rigid insulation, fiberglass mesh embedded in base coat, and finish, which are installed sequentially by a trained professional contractor as specified by the design team, and as required by code.
Some Outsulation systems protect the underlying wall with an air- and water-resistive barrier under the rigid insulation, which maximizes the continuous insulation benefit. Outsulation systems can be installed in either “barrier,” “moisture drainage” or “pressure equalized” configurations, and these systems are engineered to perform in all climates and on all types of structures. On certain types of construction (high-rise) and in certain job conditions (cold weather), a prefabricated assembly method may be preferred.
