AFS Finishing System
Euromix™ polymer modified cement renders and full polymer textures are formulated to provide weather resistant, decorative finishes over fibre cement (FC) covered permanent formwork walling systems.
Finishing System Summary
There several rendering systems recommended by Euromix for finishing over fibre cement (FC) lined permanent formwork systems, like Ritek® (registered to James Hardie) and AFS Logicwall® (registered to CSR).
These render, texture and paint finishing systems have been designed, and; should be applied in such a way as; to;
The key components of such systems are summarised as;
Evenly fill the joints using Euromix Patch Coarse, mixed with @ 10% cement and then embed 55mm wide alkali resistant fibreglass (FG) mesh tape (non-adhesive) into the Patch. Where specified, PVC Moulds/trims should be installed using Patch Coarse, ensuring that they are plumb and aligned with the appropriate sheet surface.
BEDDING RENDER COAT
Once the Patch Coarse has dried (at least 24 hours in normal conditions) prepare the selected Euromix Full Polymer Render product and apply it a nominal thickness of 3-5mm, using a trowel and straight edge to achieve true and level finish.
TOP RENDER COAT
Use of Euromix Full Polymer (FP) Render as second coat. This is always recommended prior to application of Texture Finish. Skim can also be used as a finish coat when a sponge finish is required instead of texture coat.
Application of Euromix Primer prior to Texture Coating is recommended for all substrates to assist in bond and ensure tinted texture colour is finished.
