Euromix FP Render is a ready-to-use dry mix, full polymer, cement based render formulated for application over sheet and panel substrates, like, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC),expanded polystyrene (EPS), fibre cement (FC) and plaster based materials. Euromix FP Render is mixed with water only (no added Bond).When used as a base coat, Euromix FP Render can be applied up to 3-4 mm thick in one coat (over masonry and similar solid substrates).
Euromix™ FP Render is specifically designed to meet BCA (Building Code of Australia) standards for non-combustible building materials, and is fully compliant with AS1530.1.
Ensure that all elements to be rendered have been constructed and fixed in accordance with the project plans / specifications and the substrate manufacturer’s recommendations. The substrate should be dry and free of any material that may affect the ability of the Euromix® FP Render to adhere to the surface (dirt, dust, mould oils, loose friable material, etc.).
Mask or otherwise protect adjacent building elements and areas (windows, doors, roof coverings, paving, etc.) against inadvertent coating with render. Polymer modified renders are very difficult to remove once cured and can cause staining of certain materials.
Euromix® FP Render‘s polymer content is designed to enable the render to be mixed using water only. The required volume of clean, potable water should be poured into a mixing bucket. Then, steadily add the Euromix® FP Render powder to the water while mixing it using a suitable drill (or traditional concrete mixer), until it is smooth and lump free – this normally takes 3 to 4 minutes.
Allow the wet render to ‘stand’ for 3 minutes after first mixing, then remix to achieve consistent slurry. The render is now ready for application. One 20 Kg bag of Euromix® FP Render requires @ 4 litres of water in mixing.
Apply a first coat of Euromix® FP Render to the desired thickness with hawk & trowel. Maximum coat thickness is 4mm. Use a straight edge to achieve a true and level finish.
Once the first coat of render has dried (at least 24 hours in normal conditions) prepare a topping coat of Euromix® Skim or Finishing Render with a solution of 1 part Bond to 19 parts water, then apply this to a nominal thickness of 2mm, using a trowel and straight edge to achieve a true and level finish.
For a flat smooth finish (ready for painting or the application of an acrylic texture coating) use a polystyrene, wood or plastic float. For a textured render (ready for painting) use a suitable sponge float to bring the sand grains to the surface.
Rapid drying of the surface can cause cracking and result in a low strength / friable render. Do not apply Euromix® Renders when conditions will be above 35ºC, especially if windy, nor where the temperature is below 5ºC or where the chill factor is high. Ensure that the curing render is protected from rain, extreme frosts and other sources of excess moisture (e.g.; overflowing gutters and down pipes). The drying times quoted below are for normal weather conditions, at 25ºC and 50% RH.
