We offer the rendering service that involves the use of Silicone and Acrylic Thin Coat and key features of this rendering material are:
- this is a multilayered breathable render with a variety of colours to choose from.
- This is a lightweight render and is suitable to be applied over insulation and other substrates
- suitability application include: blockwork, brick, insulation, cement board, render board, concrete, concrete blocks, lightweight blocks, bricks
- suitability to be used for internal surfaces as well!
Practical aspects of Silicone/Acrylic Render
Prior to the silicone render (also called thin coat render) being applied to the chosen surface (this surface being either insulation, render board, concrete blocks, smaller blocks, bricks or stone surfaces, this chosen surface is called from now on the substrate), the surface is cleaned and dried to ensure there is no contaminant or an undesirable object that may oppose the joining of the base coat render to the surface.
The first coat is the base coat with full fibreglass reinforcement mesh which is applied to the substrate as well as the beading. The first coat is left to dry for a number of days before any other coatings can be applied.
Once the first coat of the base coat has been applied to the substrate then this is left to cure for a number of days. Depending on the rendering manufacture system that is used then a primer is applied to the base coat. To finish the job the final coat is applied in the colour of your choice.
Usually, the minimum thickness of the render applied to the substrate is 8mm-10mm
On a sunny and dry day, the render hardens within 2-6 hours however in moist and cold conditions it can take up to 48 hours for this to happen. Once this is all complete we clean up the site and the job is completed.
