FacadesOne FractureStop

FacadesOne FractureStop

This system is a tested and engineered One Coat stucco wall assembly with the added feature of the FractureStop layer. It combines the long life cycle, durability and traditional aesthetics of three coat stucco with lower labor costs and shorter scheduling and increased crack resistance.


Exterior, interior, high impact requirement, new, retrofit, residential, multi-family, commercial, panelized, institutional, hotels, hospitals, retail centers, schools, condominiums, High Traffic, and government facilities

Primer (Optional per specification) – for decreased efflorescence and highest finish coat aesthetic performance.
  • Xi-Alkali Resistant Primer
Finish Coat – Integrally colored and textured. Unlimited color selection, dirt pickup resistant
  • Xi-Textured Acrylic Finish
  • Xi-Elastomeric Finish
  • Framed walls must terminate stucco a minimum of 4-inches above grade, 2-inches above finished grade, or as specified by local code.
  • Moist curing must be provided per specifications.
  • Ambient and surface temperature must remain above 40ºF (4ºC) during and for 24-hours after set has occurred.
  • Protect applied product from inclement weather until dry.
  • Efflorescence is a natural occurrence when using cement based products subject to exterior or wet environments.
  • No additives are permitted to any components unless specifically approved by FXI.
  • Follow the application instructions for each component.
  • Cracking will occur in portland cement stucco. This statement is true of any Portland cement based product and is not a defect of the product. Cracking can be minimized by following best practices in the FaçadesOne Stucco Handbook; including proper installation of lath, proper use of control and expansion joints, proper sand selection, proper proportioning of stucco mix, avoiding the use of excess water, moist curing of the stucco after it has been applied, and proper sequencing of construction to avoid stresses in the freshly placed stucco.
  • For use on vertical above grade walls only.
  • Dark colors may show efflorescence more easily and imperfection in the stucco base coat compared to light colors.
  • Maintenance Required: periodic cleaning, repair of cracks and impact damage if they occur, recoating to enhance appearance of weathered finish.
  • Factory prepared mixed stucco base for consistent field quality control.
  • Impact and puncture resistant.
  • Highest quality acrylic and elastomeric finishes.
  • EPS shapes for archi tectural details
  • Reduced Labor
  • Shorter construction schedule
  • Lower Cladding Weight for decreased structural requirements
  • Non-combustible and Fire resistant assemblies are available
  • FractureStop Layer increases water resistance and crack resistance
