A masonry render system for smoothing and texturing off form concrete. The system provides a hard durable surface which when painted is waterproof and easier to maintain than a standard painted wall.
Concrete should be fully cured and dry.
Surface should be clean and dry. Dags and proud areas should be ground down. A single coat of Masons Plastaseal Sealer should then be applied to the whole wall to assist with controlling suction during plaster application.
Hollow and voids must be filled with PlastaTek™ Meshing Plaster. These filled areas can be sanded the next day but it is preferable to fill level as the plaster will be hard and difficult to sand.
Basecoat, lightweight basecoat or skimming render can be applied tightly in a thin application to ensure plaster is forced into the surface and then brought out to a flat finish with extra product.
The desired texture from the Masons range can now be applied. Options are 1 mm, and Adobe which are painted over with a coat of Masons Limestop Sealer and two coats of Masons Premium Build Highbuild Acrylic Paint.
Paint in accordance with the chosen texture specification. Masons Premium Build Highbuild Acrylic Paint is recommended. Walls should be dry when painted and the plaster requires 2-3 days curing before application of the paint.
PVC corner beads can be used to form straight corners.
This system will provide weatherproofing to the wall when properly painted however it is the designers responsibility to provide adequate detailing for penetrations, tops and sealant details.
