Why use Euromix Acrylic Render?
Euromix Acrylic Render vs Cement Render
Rendering is a construction technique involving the application of Render to normally an exterior wall, planter boxes, property fence line, or exterior of a property. There are many different types of rendering systems available, one of which are acrylic renders. An acrylic render is any type of render that uses acrylic, which is a type of plastic (polymer), in the mix.
The acrylic makes the render (Euromix for example) incredibly stronger and more flexible than traditional render mixes, which in short means it is less likely to crack after it has been correctly applied. Euromix Acrylic Renders have become increasingly popular because they are easy to apply and dry much faster. A render made from acrylic can dry in as little as 2-3 days, whilst some other renders can take as long up to 30 days to dry.
Renders are used on both new and old buildings for the following reasons;
Euromix Acrylic Render (AS1530.1) can be purchased in
pre-blended bags across our distributors. It can be applied to prepared coarse surfaces such as block, brick, stone as well other substrates such as; concrete, plasterboard, masonry, PVC (AFS, Ritek, Dincel), fibre cement board (FC), aerated auto conclave (AAC), foamed ceramic aac, and other exterior claddings*.
A render may be used to disguise hairline cracks in a building’s surface. Renders made from acrylic allow water vapours to pass through between the brick / stone rendered surface and the atmosphere around the rendered surface. Acrylic is especially good for rendering brickwork because it is resistant to the white salts that can sometimes leak from the bricks.
With Euromix Acrylic Render, having a Basecoat such as Euromix Cream or Euromix NPS Keycoat Base Render is essential, again acrylic render the finish can be left as a sponge/float finish, or added texture coating for a smooth, medium or coarse finish to enhance the finish further, depending on what the finish you are wanting to achieve.
Note: if you want the rendered finish to last and have the expected smooth finish it is advisable to use the services of a professional renderer who has the proper trade qualification (as well as insured) to render, or a professional render who has been recommended by previous clients. This allows you to see the work that they have already completed. A good professional is expected to do the cleaning and preparatory work before any acrylic renders can be applied.
