Elastolith brick slips are almost totally mineral based. The product consists mainly of a mixture of assorted quartz sands and a binding agent. The binding agent is a high-grade polymer dispersion and serves the role of clay in a traditional brick. It means that the product remains flexible.
The UV-resistant colour pigments guarantee the colour fastness of the brick slip. The brick slip and the adhesive consist mainly of the same raw materials and, following application, form one whole.
Thanks to the combination of high-quality raw materials and specific production processes, the Elastolith brick slip is a unique and durable product. Brick slips cannot be distinguished from traditional bricks, but they do have many advantages. If it is not technically possible to use bricks, Elastolith brick slips provide a way of creating a masonry look after all.
The advantages definitely also apply in the long term. Over 30 years’ experience proves that brick slips are more or less maintenance free. Furthermore, brick slips are washable, impact resistant, paintable, water repellent and vapour permeable. Partly for this reason, Elastolith is able to guarantee the product for 10 years.
