StoneCoat’s debuts its new FUSION system showcasing a single panel that replaces four layers of materials used in traditional exterior wall systems — exterior insulation, OSB sheathing, waterproof & vapor barriers, and metal lath.
“This product is a huge step forward in the construction industry and a reliable solution to the 2021 energy code requirements by providing continuous exterior insulation” said Ralph Bush, president of StoneCoat. “With FUSION, builders, developers and architects can create high-performance, energy efficient buildings that meet their sustainability goals, while also saving time and money.”
FUSION’S structural insulated sheathing and integrated masonry backing ensure exceptional design and strength, and panels are compatible with most exterior claddings. Their R10 insulation helps meet new energy code requirements, and FUSION also offers up to R30 insulation with 6-inch thickness. The panels also resist cracking, rotting, and mold compared to traditional building materials.
The panels are lightweight, making installation faster and easier. FUSION is also a sustainable, carbon-neutral product, as the laminate is made from recycled petroleum products, making it easier for builders, developers and architects to meet environmental requirements and gain LEED points.
The FUSION panel is also part of the StoneCoat building system. StoneCoat cladding products are engineered to bond directly to the FUSION panel, eliminating the need for metal lath or other masonry backing. This makes it easy to get the timeless look of stucco with StoneCoat SMOOTH®, or the elegance of stone veneer with StoneCoat CARVE®. Add StoneCoat SHIELD water-repellent coating to maximize performance. All StoneCoat products are environmentally friendly, made from natural or recycled materials.
For a high-performance exterior solution that’s good for the environment — and for significant savings in labor, time and building costs — choose StoneCoat FUSION.
