Brick Slip Samples
Elastolith Brick slips are flexible acrylic brick slips, ideal for those looking to recreate brick features internally or externally. The brick slips are incredibly easy to install and are perfect for installing on top of external wall insulation systems because they are so lightweight. The simplicity of this brick slip solution is one of its great selling points – the Elastolith system has only two components: the flexible acrylic brick slip and the Adhesive, which also acts as the grout. The brick slips come in a huge range of colours and textures; we also offer the adhesive in 5 different colours so you can choose the perfect combination of brick slip and grout to match your requirements.
Elastolith have been making brick slips for over 30 years now and over this time frame, millions of metres squared of facade have been finished with the system. If you are interested in insulating your property with external solid wall insulation, but want to retain the brick feel of your property; or you simply want to make a statement inside your property, Elastolith brick slips are the perfect solution.
Available in 6 Colours
Elastolith brick slips are almost totally mineral-based, consisting 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. However unlike traditional brickwork, our brick slips are incredibly flexible, allowing them to be installed easily on almost any substrate.
All the pigments used in the Elastolith brick slips are resistant to UV, meaning that they won’t fade over time when exposed to sunlight. This ensures that your new facade looks as good 20 years down the line as it did the day it was installed. Our brick slips are virtually maintenance-free but have the additional benefits of being easily washable, impact resistant, water-repellent and vapour permeable.
Use a notched trowel (4 mm) to spread the special brick slip adhesive to an area of approximately 1sq.metre. We suggest not spreading the adhesive on a wider area than this due to the fast drying rate of the adhesive. You are trying to achieve a layer of adhesive approximately 2mm thick which is then used to embed the brick slips. The brick slips are then fixed to the wall in a staggered formation (like standard brickwork) with 10mm gap between vertical and horizontal bricks. Elastolith brick slips can be bent around corners with minimal fuss and also can be cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Once the bricks are all installed, a 10mm brush can be used to ‘grout’ the brick work – ideally wet the brush slightly and brush the grout to smooth it out.
- The brick slips are sold in packs of 60 – equal to 1m2.
- The brick slips are available in 7 different colours (the adhesive is then available in a further 5 colours).
- Easy to install the flexible brick slips can be bent around corners and cut with a sharp pair of scissors.
