Elastolith Brick Slips Blackpool
Our Elastolith brick slips perfectly mimics the look of brickwork. Flexible and durable, these are great if you want to recreate brick features internally or externally. The brick slips are really lightweight and are immensely easy to install. In addition, making them perfect for installing on top of external wall insulation systems.
The simplicity of this brick slip solution is one of its most notable selling points. The Elastolith Brick Slip system has only two components – the brick slip itself and the adhesive, which also acts as the grout. The brick slips come in a wide range of colours and textures. Also, we offer the adhesive in 4 different colours. So, you can easily choose the perfect combination of brick slip and grout to match your requirements.
Further, the bricks slips by Elastolith are nearly entirely mineral-based and consist of a mixture of assorted quartz sands and a binding agent. The binding agent is a high-grade polymer dispersion and performs the role of clay in traditional brick.
All the pigments used in the brick slips are resistant to UV, meaning that they won’t fade over time when exposed to sunlight. Ensuring also that your facade looks as good 20 years later as it did the first day installed. Our Elastolith systems are incredibly impact-resistant, water repellent, and vapour permeable.
Use a notched trowel (4 mm) to spread the special brick slip adhesive to approximately 1sq.metre area. Used to embed the brick slips, you should also aim to have a layer of adhesive approximately 2mm thick. Then, fix the brick slips to the wall in a staggered formation (like standard brickwork) with a 10mm gap between vertical and horizontal bricks. Elastolith brick slips can be bent around corners with minimal fuss and cut with a sharp pair of scissors. Once the bricks are all installed, a 10mm brush can be used to ‘grout’ the brickwork. Ideally, wet the brush slightly and brush the grout to smooth it out.
