PermaRock Brick Slips

PermaRock Brick Slips are a lightweight, flexible and breathable synthetic resin brick used to replicate brickwork.

 

Durable, robust and impact-resistant, they provide a natural, traditional brick appearance to wall surfaces and offer flexible application and multiple design features.

Manufactured from high-quality raw materials, PermaRock Brick Slips are supplied as facing and corner (pistol) brick slips in a range of 12 standard colours and 3 textures: Special colours, textures and sizes can be manufactured to order (minimum order quantities).

The Brick Slip Adhesive used to fix the slips is available in three standard colours (cement-grey, sandwhite and dark grey). The joints are pointed using PermaRock Pointing Mortar (cement-grey) - other colours are available subject to minimum order quantities.

PermaRock Brick Slips are assessed to EN 13501-1 and when used as the decorative finish of a PermaRock Mineral Fibre External Wall Insulation system, the system achieves an A2- s1,d0 classification and is suitable for use on buildings of any building height, including those with a storey height above 18 metres.

Method of Application / Drying Conditions

Cementitious base coats are primed with PermaRock K & R Primer. Clean cement-free base coats do not require priming.

The wall area to be treated is marked out with string lines, usually to standard bricklaying bond patterns and dimensions, and PermaRock Brick Slip Adhesive is applied onto the wall and combed horizontally with a notched trowel. The adhesive application rate is approx. 3 - 4 kg/m2

The brick facings / corners are applied into the freshly applied adhesive and floated into place, excluding any air pockets behind the tile. The adhesive mortar is brushed around the tiles to ensure that all edges are sealed, and the mortar within the joints is smoothed using an appropriately sized semi-dry brush. The adhesive is applied as necessary to ensure full sealing around the tiles. 

Once the adhesive mortar has dried, the joints are pointed using PermaRock Pointing Mortar (cement-grey - other colours are available).
