Cement render is a composition of cement, sand, water, plus lime or clay. The render is normally applied to rough surfaces such as brick, stone or concrete blocks, as well as painted walls after being appropriately prepared. The purpose of cement rendering is to create a smooth finish on the irregular surface.
Acrylic rendering uses a render composition similar to cement render but instead also includes acrylic, a type of plastic, into the mixture. Acrylic render is suitable for many internal and external applications, including brick, existing render, painted walls and ceilings, balustrades, polystyrene, cement, and concrete blocks. Like cement rendering, acrylic rendering can be completed in many finishes and colours, so there is sure to be a combination that will perfectly suit the inside or outside of your home.
Polymer rendering is a type of cement rendering that is intended to have a superior bonding ability to all suitable surfaces, such as cement blocks, clay bricks, concrete, polystyrene, plaster, and painted walls. The added polymer is extremely adhesive, meaning it is often recommended where other types of render may fail.
What are the benefits of protective coating acrylic based coating?
An acrylic-based coating developed to provide a tough, protective, impact finish to cement renders, texture coatings and most properly prepared building substrates. Acrylic based coating is highly durable, scuff resistant, easily cleanable and formulated to resist the occurrence of mould and fungal growth. Acrylic based coating provides a highly flexible, protective, water repellent coating with exceptional resistance to weathering.
