FINEBUILD is a 100% acrylic, fiber-reinforced base coat, adhesive and leveler that is field-mixed with Type I or Type II Portland cement.

​High build, fiber-reinforced
​Achieves excellent resistance to drying shrinkage cracks; improves coverage when embedding mesh
​Smooth, creamy consistency
​Trowels easily, speeding mesh embedment, reducing applicator arm fatigue, increasing job-site productivity
​Can be used as a leveling coat up 1/8" thick per pass, 1/4" total
​Minimizes multiple applications when leveling shallow spots or filling voids; spots fasteners inone pass without shrinking and cracking; reduces cement and pail disposal cost
​Versatile, multipurpose product
​Use as an adhesive, base coat and leveling coat
​Water based
​Safe, non-toxic; clean up easily with soap and water


FINEBUILD properties enable it to be used as a leveler over masonry, stucco and other cementitious substrates. FINEBUILD can be applied at a maximum thickness of 6 mm (1/4").  

FINEBUILD is designed for use as the leveler, adhesive and/or base coat in several wall systems from Finestone.  

FINEBUILD is used with the Pebbletex Wall System to adhere expanded polystyrene insulation board to the following acceptable substrates:

  3. Unpainted and unglazed concrete or unit masonry
  4. PermaBase® brand cement board (or other ASTM C1325 Type A Exterior approved cement boards)
  5. Poured concrete/unit masonry
  6. ASTM C1177 sheathings (eXP® by National Gypsum, GlasRoc® by Certainteed,  Securock®, Weather Defense® Platinum and GreenGlass® and DensGlass® exterior sheathing)
  7. Gypsum sheathing (ASTM C79/C1396)

Note: Do not use over wood-based sheathing substrates

FINEBUILD is used with Pebbletex EIFS, Pebbletex-D,-D7, -D10, Finescreen CBS and all Finestone Textured Acrylic Surfacing Systems to embed CORNER MESH and Finestone REINFORCING MESH.

FINEBUILD will also adhere expanded polystyrene insulation board (EPS) to expanded polystyrene insulation board, enabling the build out of architectural shapes and details.
