Euromix NPS Keycoat Base Render


Euromix™ NPS Keycoat Base Render is a dry mix, full polymer, cement based render formulated for application over non porous sheet and panel substrates, like, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), expanded polystyrene (EPS), fibre cement (FC) and plaster based materials. Euromix™ NPS Keycoat Base Render is mixed with water only (no added Bond).


When used as a base coat, Euromix™ NPS Base Render can be applied up to 3-5 mm thick in one coat. Higher thicknesses can be achieved by applying multiple coats.

Preparation


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™ NPS Base 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.

Sound building design and construction methods recognise the likelihood of structural and material movements and allow for them to be managed through the placement of control joints (often also called expansion joints). Generally, control joints should not be coated over with Euromix products. Site specific advice for the treatment of control joints should be sought from the designer/builder/site manager.

Mixing the Render


Euromix™ NPS Base 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™ NPS Base 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 5-10 minutes after the first mixing, then remix to achieve consistent slurry. The render is now ready for application. One 20 Kg bag of Euromix™ NPS Base Render requires @ 5.5 litres of water in mixing.

Typical Application Method


Euroset strongly recommends that Euromix™ NPS Base Render be applied by trades’ people with the appropriate skill, knowledge and experience to carry out the relevant works. Apply a first coat of Euromix™ NPS Base Render to the desired thickness with hawk & trowel. Maximum coat thickness is 5mm. 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 Render, or any of the other Euromix finishing renders.

Curing


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.

Surface dry

Four (4) hours.

Recoat with render

One (1) day.

Applying Texture Coating

Three (3) days.

Applying Paint

Three (3) days for acrylic paints. Twenty-one (21) days for oil / alkyd based paints.
