    STP 1269 is the first publication of its kind featuring extensive information on the components, characteristics and effectiveness of EIFS. 14 peer reviewed papers cover the following key categories:

    Performance of EIF System--4 papers examine Canadian field performance, why EIFS systems succeed and fail, an extensive look at U.S. Army Facilities and fire resistance

    Evaluation of Surface Coating--Such topics as water resistance, and exterior crack-bridging prediction are discussed in 4 papers

    Evaluation of Joints, Flashing and Rainscreen Technolog--Issues including alternatives in sealant systems, water penetration and resistance and various performance test methods are explored in five papers

    Costs--A comprehensive paper delves into cost forecasting methods for an exterior insulation and finish system
