Since 1986 CAN-BEST has been heavily involved with EIFS research and system evaluation.  We have played an instrumental role in assisting CCMC throughout the development of their EIFS Technical Guide, and in advancing our clients’ competitive edge.

Recently, and through the support of a consortium of six EIFS manufacturers, we have assisted CCMC in finalizing their Technical Guide for EIFS applied onto wood substrate.  Particularly, we were successful in finalizing the Test Method for EIFS Drainage Capacity, currently adopted by CCMC.  (Download presentation PDF (2.5 MB)

CAN-BEST is closely involved with nearly all EIFS manufacturers in evaluating the various performance aspects of their systems. We perform all testing required for CCMC evaluation, from full-scale hygrothermal loading and drainage assessment to small-scale testing of materials properties.
