You will create a very personal ambiance in your home. No matter whether you choose the bright white or the distinctive deep red thin brick slip, or one of the many other warm color varieties, the unique Elastolith flexible thin brick slips you are sure to turn your house into a home.

On partition walls and structures on stage

Usefull Tips
  • The horizontal joints and the vertical joints must be 3/8" wide.
  • Smaller joints will need more bricks per foot.
  • Always start on the top-side of the wall.
  • Be sure that the rows are levelled.
  • Always take the Flexi-Brick at random from different cartons to get a uniform finished appearance of the colors.
  • Embed the Flexi-Brick firmly into the adhesive.
  • Ensure that they are offset and no moisture can get behind the already applied bricks.
  • Small differences in color and structure are to be expected by later buys, because of the use of natural material (special sands).
  • Exterior Application - After application the surface has to be protected against rain for 5-7 days minimum.
  • Never apply Flexi-Brick at temperatures below 40°F.

Use Flexi-Brick™ indoors or out, where ever you have a solid surface.
See the chart below for a detailed description of where Flexi-Brick™ can be used

 

* Before applying Flexi-Brick™ we strongly recommended you pre-treat the base surface, using a primer. Use any standard water-based acrylic primer. We also recommend using mesh on joint seams to prevent cracks.

**Chip board, particle boards of any type, luan, OSB, and tounge and groove planking are unsuitable substrates to directly install Flexi-Brick™ over. These materials tend to swell, warp and delaminate when exposed to moisture. For these applications we recommend covering the wood with exterior sheet material.

Flexi-Brick™ is not suitable for traffic areas
