PPX - Polished Plaster External

PPX is a low maintenance, durable external limestone render system that can create stunning honed and textured stone like finishes for both new build and renovation projects. Stunning exteriors. Stunning performance.

Based on our market leading polished plaster finishes

PPX incorporates hydrophobic polymers and reactive pozzolans to form a decorative weather resistant and vapour permeable layer that adheres to most building materials, including brickwork, blockwork, masonry and stone. PPX can also form part of an ETAG 004 compliant External Wall Insulation (EWI) system delivering outstanding thermal properties and improved fire resistance. The Armourcoat PPX External Wall Insulation (EWI) system ensures both new build and refurbishment projects meet stringent thermal performance standards and provides buildings with a durable weather resistant exterior in a wide range of finishes.

Improving and protecting refurbished buildings

The PPX EWI system can play a key role in any refurbishment project providing a stunning new exterior whilst delivering immediate energy and cost savings by upgrading thermal performance. Suitable for both solid and cavity walls PPX EWI reduces thermal bridging. It provides long term protection from condensation, mould and damp and also improves a building’s fire safety rating.

Innovative and energy efficient facades for new buildings

Not only does the PPX EWI system help meet and often exceed Building Regulations for thermal performance (up to Passivhaus standards) it also offers a way of creating original and innovative facades for modern buildings. It can complement or contrast with other materials offering natural finishes in a wide range of colours. It can be used to incorporate detail such as banding, logos and stencil designs.

Tested to the highest standards

The PPX EWI system has been tested to ETAG 004 2013 guideline for technical approval of external thermal insulation composite systems with rendering.
