Parex USA, Inc. the parent company of leadingbuilding material brands; Parex, Teifs, LaHabra, El Rey, and Merkrete today announced the launch MicaMax 3 - basecoat, EIFS adhesive and finish, all-in-one.

MicaMax 3 is the first product of its kind to offer a basecoat, EIFS adhesive and acrylic finish, in one pail. This multi-use product virtually eliminates the need to purchase separate materials for projects. That means less material on the jobsite and less waste. Any unused MicaMax 3 Finish can be used on later projects.

With distinctive Miox and natural Mica, MicaMax 3 exhibits stunning light and dark metallic flecks to create the look of shells or stone in the finish. The product may be used as a finish, EIFS adhesive or basecoat for EIFS and stucco. When used as a basecoat and adhesive, it is applied in the same manner as Parex 121 Wet Basecoat and Adhesive. It can be used to laminate EPS board to approved substrates such as concrete, masonry and gypsum wallboard. MicaMax 3 is also a 100% acrylic smooth finish, water-based and VOC compliant product.

"MicaMax 3 is a unique all-in-one product," said Heidi Larsen, Product Manager. "It is definitely a valuable alternative to traditional acrylic finishes, basecoats and adhesives. One pail does it all."
