EPS / ICF / Polystyrene Block Construction
Render Systems for EPS / ICF / Polystyrene Block Construction
EPS / ICF / Polystyrene block construction is a snap together hollow block, constructed for a reinforced concrete mass masonry core that is pored into the supported EPS block walls. An established method in the New Zealand construction industry, combining the values and properties of diverse materials.
EPS / ICF / Polystyrene block is light, quick and easy in its installation, giving the designer the ability to form straight and curved walls with exceptional insulation and acoustic properties. The StoArmat Render System is fracture, impact resistant and engineered to provide optimal protection and finish with warranty, to compliment, protect and enhance this building element.

StoArmat Miral Render System
A BRANZ appraised high performance system to provide exceptional crack resistance and weather protection. Application includes a basecoat with LevelLite render to straighten any irregularities, Followed by StoArmat render and glass fibre mesh , providing engineered reinforcement to reliably dissipate tensile, seismic and shear stress. Finished with perfectly interlocking components: Stolit fibre-reinforced coloured finishing render plus StoColor; creating a 4mm weather tight reinforcement system for reliability and protection that surpasses the facade durability requirements.
Installations are carried out by a Sto Registered Licensed Building Practitioner with the added protection of a StoArmat 15 or 20 Year Warranty and StoService Assurance, guaranteeing building code compliant materials are used and application meets building code standards, including a service plan for long-term security.
