Renders 20kg Paper Bag

DESCRIPTION

Acryloc Wallcote Pro Render is a superior quality, cement based, polymer modified render containing washed and graded silica sands, acrylic powder to increase adhesion and strength and proprietary additives to aid workability.
Acryloc Wallcote Pro Render is suitable for a wide range of domestic and commercial wall rendering requirements. The high compressive and flexural strength achieved by this product make it particularly suitable for high density substrates with the added advantage of being able to be applied as a thin section skim coat on sound surfaces. (Applications on low density substrates may be more suited to using Wallcote Trade Render with the addition of Liquid Bond).

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

  • All surfaces to be rendered must be clean, sound and free from contaminants including; oil, mould release, dust, dirt, silicone, mud, grease, salt, efflorescence, animal droppings and any loose or flaking material.
  • Porous substrates should be primed with Acryloc Prime Seal prior to application of Wallcote Pro Render. Priming the substrate aids render adhesion and evens out absorption of water from the fresh render giving a better finish.

**Note: priming the substrate prior to applying render does not omit the need for subsequent priming of the new render prior to painting.

  • Where the substrate is not primed, it may be necessary to ‘wet down’ or ‘dampen’ the surface prior to rendering, particularly if the substrate is porous and water absorption is likely.
  • Apply the Prime Seal at the rate of 10-12m2/L and allow to dry (approx 30mins)
  • (Note: The concentrate form of Prime Seal must be diluted before use).

APPLICATION

  • Care should be taken to keep Wallcote Pro Render off windows and adjacent surfaces that are not to be coated, as it can be very difficult to remove once allowed to dry. Areas not to be coated should be masked and protected.
  • Wallcote Pro Render may be applied by trowel or with suitable spraying equipment.
  • Wallcote Pro Render is normally over coated using appropriate components selected from the Wallcote system.

Mixing Method

Note: When mixing Wallcote Pro Render for the first time it is advisable to start by using the minimum amount of water recommended for the first bag and then adjusting the workability by following the procedure below. The total amount of water used in this first mix can be recorded and used as a guide for mixing subsequent bags.

  • 2.75- 3.25 litres of water is required per bag of Pro Render (depending on method of application & workability required).
  • Add the required quantity of water to a suitable mixing vessel. Add Acryloc Liquid Bond to the water, if required, and stir thoroughly.
  • Add the Pro Render to the water steadily while mixing with a power stirrer until it is smooth and lump free.
  • Allow the mix to stand for five (5) minutes before use or before adding extra water and remixing to adjust to the workability required.

Pot Life

  • When mixed with water the maximum pot life is two (2) hours, do not add more water to extend pot life as this will reduce the strength and durability of the finished render.

Brickwork & common masonry substrates

  • Apply a coat of 3 – 5mm thickness.
  • Work on a 1- 2m2 area and immediately finish with a suitable straight edge.
  • Work in this fashion until the whole area is flat and even.
  • Apply second and subsequent coats as required, with each being no less than 3mm and up to 5mm thick.
  • Once the finish coat/s have firmed slightly, rub-up with a wooden, sponge or polystyrene float to produce an even, uniform and smooth surface.

Proprietary façade systems

  • Follow the façade manufacturer’s specifications for finish coats and consult the relevant Acryloc Specification Sheet for any required special instructions.

Clean up with water

Important Notes

  • Do not apply Wallcote Pro Render on unprotected surfaces when rain is anticipated within 6 hours of completion of the days work, longer in damp, cold +/or humid conditions.
  • Avoid application in full sun, on hot surfaces or in hot windy conditions.
  • Application should be carried out on a day with temperatures above 10°C and below 32°C.
  • Coated area must be protected from damage until the completion of the project; finished work must be protected from rain, frost and severe weather conditions until fully dried.

CURING TIME

Curing time allows the render to develop sufficient strength to resist mechanical damage before overcoating.

Multiple Render Coats

– Allow minimum 3 to 4 hours curing time before applying second and subsequent render coats.
– Allow 2 to 3 days curing per coat of render before applying texture or paint coatings.

Single render coat

– Allow 2 to 3 days before applying texture or paint coatings to a single, fresh 3-5mm render coat.

Sprayed Render

– Allow 5 days before applying texture or paint coatings to a single, fresh sprayed render coat. More time is required because sprayed render is normally applied thicker than 3-5mm and because the mix contains more water per bag.

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

  • All surfaces to be rendered must be clean, sound and free from contaminants including; oil, mould release, dust, dirt, silicone, mud, grease, salt, efflorescence, animal droppings and any loose or flaking material.
  • It is preferable that substrates are primed with Acryloc Prime Seal prior to application of Wallcote Trade Render. Priming the substrate first will aid render adhesion, improve substrate surface characteristics for over-coating, even out absorption of water from the fresh render giving a better finished job and reduce the chance of efflorescence pushing the new render off the old substrate.

**Note: priming the substrate prior to applying render does not omit the need for subsequent priming of the new render prior to painting etc.

  • If the substrate is not primed, it may be necessary to ‘wet down’ or ‘dampen’ the surface prior to rendering, particularly if the substrate is porous and water absorption is likely.
  • Apply Prime Seal at the rate of 8-10m2/L and allow to dry (approx 30mins).
  • (Note: The concentrate form of Prime Seal must be diluted before use).

APPLICATION

  • Care should be taken to keep Wallcote Trade Render off windows and adjacent surfaces that are not to be coated, as it can be very difficult to remove once allowed to dry.
  • Wallcote Trade Render may be applied by trowel or with suitable spraying equipment.
  • Wallcote Trade Render is normally over coated using appropriate components selected from the Wallcote system.

The total amount of water used in this first mix can be recorded and used as a guide for mixing subsequent bags.

  • 3.5 – 4 litres of water is required per bag of Trade Render (depending on method of application & workability).
  • Add the required quantity of water to a suitable mixing vessel (20 litre pail recommended). Add Acryloc Liquid Bond to the water, if required, and stir thoroughly.
  • Add the Trade Render to the water steadily while mixing with a power stirrer until it is smooth and lump free.
  • Allow the mix to stand for five (5) minutes before use or before adding extra water and remixing to adjust to the workability required.

  • The surface may be coated with Acryloc Patch or Acryloc cement based Render, as required, before applying Acryloc Sandcote.

APPLICATION

  • Acryloc Sandcote does not require thinning or dilution. Up to 300mL of clean water can be added to a 15L pail to adjust the workability if desired.
  • Mix thoroughly with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward lifting action, or use a power mixer.
  • Power mixing is recommended as this will enhance the workability and give the best coverage.
  • A wet edge should be maintained throughout the application and day joints formed at corners, expansion joints or mouldings where they will not be evident after completion.

Trowel on application

  • Apply Acryloc Sandcote to the surface, trowelling to the thickness of the largest particle.
  • Commence at the top of the wall panel. (Two or more applicators may be required for large uninterrupted wall areas).
  • Allow surface to stand for a short time prior to finishing.
  • Rub up or ‘finish’ with a suitable texture float either in a vertical or circular pattern depending on the desired finish and profile.
  • Application must be carried out in a brisk uniform fashion, terminating only when a whole area or section is completely coated. For example; a natural break, expansion joint or corner.
  • Acryloc Sandcote should not be extended (spread) too far; otherwise durability and hiding power may suffer.

Spray on application

  • Hopper gun, pressure pot or diaphragm pump system can be used to produce a fine supple texture or high-build chunky texture.

Important Notes

  • Care should be taken to keep Acryloc Sandcote off windows and adjacent surfaces that are not to be coated, as it can be very difficult to remove once allowed to dry.
  • Do not apply Acryloc Sandcote when rain is anticipated within 5 hours of completion of the days work, longer in damp, cold +/or humid conditions.
  • Avoid application in full sun, on hot surfaces or in hot windy conditions.
  • Application should be carried out on a day with temperatures above 10°C and below 32°C.
  • Coated area must be protected from damage until the completion of the project; finished work must be protected from rain, frost and severe weather conditions until fully dried.
  • Acryloc Sandcote is normally over coated with Acryloc Acryloc Armourflex for best colour accuracy, to improve durability and to reduce dirt pickup.

  • Fibre Cement Sheeting (Fibro/Blue board)
  • Rendered expanded polystyrene
  • Clay and Concrete Brickwork
  • Concrete blocks
  • Tilt panel walls
  • Other primed exterior surfaces

SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

  • Areas not to be coated should be masked and protected.
  • All surfaces to be coated must be clean, sound, free from contaminants including; oil, mould release, dust, dirt, silicone, mud, grease, salt, efflorescence, animal droppings and any loose or flaking material.
  • All substrates must be primed with Acryloc Prime Seal.
  • Apply the Prime Seal at the rate of 12.5-16.5m2/L and allow to dry (approx 30mins).
    • (Note: The concentrate form of Prime Seal must be diluted before use)
  • Imperfections and butt joints can be filled with Acryloc Patch with 5% Portland Cement added.
  • The surface may be coated with Acryloc Patch or Acryloc cement based Render, as required, before applying Acryloc Marblecote.

APPLICATION

  • Acryloc Marblecote does not require thinning or dilution. Up to 300mL of clean water can be added to a 15L pail to adjust the workability if desired.
  • Mix thoroughly with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward lifting action, or use a power mixer.
  • Power mixing is recommended as this will enhance the workability and give the best coverage.
  • A wet edge should be maintained throughout the application and day joints formed at corners, expansion joints or mouldings where they will not be evident after completion.

Trowel on application

  • Apply Acryloc Marblecote to the surface trowelling to the thickness of the largest particle.
  • Commence at the top of the wall panel. (Two or more applicators may be required for large uninterrupted wall areas).
  • Allow the surface to stand for a short time prior to finishing.
  • Rub up or ‘finish’ with a suitable texture float either in a vertical or circular pattern depending on the desired finish and profile.
  • Application must be carried out in a brisk uniform fashion, terminating only when a whole area or section is completely coated. For example; a natural break, expansion joint or corner.
  • Acryloc Marblecote should not be extended (spread) too far; otherwise durability / hiding power may suffer.

Spray on application

  • A Hopper gun, pressure pot or diaphragm pump system can be used to produce a fine supple texture or high-build chunky texture.

Important Notes

  • Care should be taken to keep Acryloc Marblecote off windows and adjacent surfaces that are not to be coated, as it can be very difficult to remove once allowed to dry.
  • Do not apply Acryloc Marblecote when rain is anticipated within 5 hours of completion of the days work, longer in damp, cold +/or humid conditions.
  • Avoid application in full sun, on hot surfaces or in hot windy conditions.
  • Application should be carried out on a day with temperatures above 10°C and below 32°C.
  • Coated area must be protected from damage until the completion of the project; finished work must be protected from rain, frost and severe weather conditions until fully dried.
  • Acryloc Marblecote is normally over coated with Acryloc Acryloc Armourflex for best colour accuracy, to improve durability and to reduce dirt pickup.

  • A wet edge should be maintained throughout the application and day joints formed at corners, expansion joints or mouldings where they will not be evident after completion.

METHOD

  • Apply Acryloc Roll on Texture to the surface with a suitable texture roller. Load the roller generously and apply in strips 500mm-750mm in length.
  • Once five (5) or six (6) strips have been applied, roll across to even out the surface.
  • Finish in one direction for an even texture.
  • Repeat the above steps, only re-rolling 70-100mm into the previously coated area.
  • Work quickly and without interruption, laying off from the edge to avoid texture imperfections.
  • If a small area is missed, it is best to touch up when the area is dry. Running out of material midway through a wall surface should be avoided at all times. In this event, feather the edge and allow texture to dry, then marry in with new material.
  • Acryloc Roll on Texture should not be extended (spread) too far; otherwise durability and hiding power may suffer.

Important Notes

  • Care should be taken to keep Acryloc Roll on Texture off windows and adjacent surfaces that are not to be coated, as it can be very difficult to remove once allowed to dry.
