Adhesives & Sealants: Omega Crack Isolation System

Omega Products International provides a cost effective approach for maintaining the structural integrity of stucco-cladded walls in residential, commercial, or retail properties.

Omega's Crack Isolation System (CIS), a proven product used by builders to reduce cracking in new and existing Cement based plaster systems, has become a hot item in new construction and the retrofit market.

Conventional cement based stucco systems outperform other wall cladding options in durability, installation cost, design flexibility, maintenance cost, and overall service life. In fact, stucco cannot be beat when it comes to exterior wall finishing systems.

However, stucco can and will crack when stress in the walls exceed the tensile strength of the system. This type of cracking is usually not a defect in materials or workmanship, but an inherent condition that home builders and home owners were forced to accept, until now.

The Omega Crack Isolation System consists of:

  1. Existing Cracked Stucco Wall
  2. CI-Mesh - Embedded in the CI-Base Coat
  3. CI Base - Cementitious Base Coat
  4. OmegaFlex Primer
  5. OmegaFlex Acrylic Stucco Finish

Omega's CIS system provides a barrier of fiberglass mesh embedded into a more flexible acrylic modified cement to help bridge the common inherent cracking in cement based stucco systems new and old. 

It is especially popular for new SmoothCoat stucco installations because smooth coat stucco finishes can show cracking more than textured finishes.
