1.
Air/weather barrier on base wall assembly covered by FPIB: Verify that air/weather barrier is secure and correctly installed before covering with FPIB. Adhesive to bond FPIB shall be compatible with FPIB and air/weather barrier.
2.
Over FPIB: FPIB is a substrate for the air/weather barrier, subject to requirements in air/weather barrier Section.
E.
Division 08 - Openings. Provide an air and water tight seal of fenestration to FPIB.
F.
Facility Services Subgroup: Penetrations of the FPIB with mechanical, electrical, telecommunications or other service. Rough gaps around penetrations or other damage shall be filled as required by FPIB manufacturer.
3.2
INSTALLATION
A.
Install FPIB in a single layer over masonry wall surfaces to achieve specified R-value.
B.
Cut FPIB to size and shape to fit around obstacles and to provide snug fit on wall surface.
C.
Butt neighboring FPIB pieces tightly together. Offset board joints in neighboring rows 12 inches (305 mm) minimum.
D.
Fill gaps exceeding1/8 inch (3 mm) between adjacent FPIB pieces.
E.
Fill gaps exceeding 1/8 inch (3 mm) around penetrations through FPIB and at terminations of FPIB.
F.
Use the following materials to fill gaps between adjacent FPIB pieces, around penetrations through FPIB and at terminations of FPIB:

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Retain for FPIB installation between rows of imbedded ladder brick ties. Delete if not required.
 
G.
Install factory-cut FPIB, sized to fit between rows of imbedded brick ties. Bond FPIB snug to wall with insulation adhesive.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Retain for FPIB installation over knife plate type brick ties. Delete if not required.
 
H.
Push FPIB over knife plate ties. Use technique to prevent emerging knife plates from de-laminating FPIB facer. Bond FPIB snug to wall with insulation adhesive.
I.
Bonding FPIB In Place: Apply 3/8 inch thick by 3 inches (9.5 mm by 152 mm) diameter dabs of insulation adhesive to the FPIB, spaced maximum 16 inches (406 mm) on center. Press FPIB tightly to wall substrate within open time of the insulation adhesive. Fasten as required with standard FPIB fasteners or plastic screw FPIB fasteners to snug FPIB to non-plumb surfaces.
3.3
