Product Description


Euromix SkimRender, when used in conjunction with Euromix Bond, is an acrylic modified cement based render suitable for application as a finishing render over most substrates including previously rendered surfaces, clay and cement bricks/blocks, pre cast or site poured concrete, calcil bricks, aerated concrete blocks/panels, expanded polystyrene and styrofoam surfaces (approved alkali resistant fibre glass mesh must be used when applied to polystyrene and styrofoam surfaces). Euromix SkimRender is designed for use as a finishing coat render, applied in one layer ranging from 2mm to 3mm..

The applicator must ensure the surface to be rendered is stable and free of adhesion inhibiting materials such as dust, grease, dirt, fungus mould releasing agents, excessive water, etc. Euromix SkimRender provides a weather resistant, stable protective surface for subsequent coatings of paint, trowelled on coatings, etc.

Mixing Instructions


Euromix Skim Coat can be mixed (with the correct ratio of Euromix Bond/water) by mechanical drill mixer or with a traditional concrete mixer. Add the required volume of Bond/water to the mixing bucket or concrete mixer the steadily add the Euromix Skim Coat until the mixture will hold a soft peak on a hawk. T

Too soft a mixture will run off the hawk and requires extra time before the surface can be finished up; too hard a mixture becomes difficult to apply and finish.

Application


Ensure the surface is clean, then; apply the render to the substrate using a steel trowel, taking care to coat evenly. The surface can then be ruled off with a straight edge to level the surface. When the material has firmed sufficiently it can be floated with a large polystyrene, wooden or plastic float to provide a flat finish.

If a textured finish is required then the render can be sponged using a suitable sponge float, to bring the sand to the surface ready for curing before painting.

Coverage


When mixed and applied correctly, 20kgs of Euromix Skim Coat should cover from 3 to 6 square meters, depending on the thickness of the layer and on how straight and true the substrate is.
