    Get 17 papers spanning two decades worth of changes to Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems. Papers discuss the progress with the development of industry standards, test, system performance, building codes, water resistive barriers, energy, products, and applications. These papers are a result of the third ASTM symposium dedicated to Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS). The first ASTM EIFS symposium (1992, Washington, DC) concentrated on development use and performance of EIFS, while the second ASTM EIFS symposium (1995, Denver, CO) focused on materials, properties, and performance.
