Plastalite Rehabilitation Render
Plastalite Rehabilitation Render is a light weight render system designed to inhibit the emergence of hygroscopic salts.
- A render for salt affected brickwork.
- Replastering of walls after successful rising damp treatment.
- General cement rendering of both internal and external walls.
Plastalite Rehabilitation Render has been specifically designed as the replacement plaster after the eradication of rising or lateral damp. It is equally appropriate as a protection render for properties in close proximity to the sea where a salt retarding base is required for long life coating systems. Plastalite Rehabilitation Render is also used in new construction work as a replacement material for sand / cement renders due to its ease of use.
The Rehabilitation render can be used adjacent to heritage types mixes (e.g. Sand and lime) or modern cement based mixes without detriment.
- Light weight
- Easy to mix
- No primer required on most substrates
- One coat system
- Exterior or interior
- Excellent workability and finishing characteristics
Surfaces to be rendered should be free of form release agents, oil or grease or any materials that may affect the adhesion of the Plastalite Rehabilitation Render. Mix material with water in a suitable mixing vessel to a usable consistency. Apply the mixed material by trowel, screed and wood float to a flat even surface and press steel finish or provide key with a “devil” float ready for a set plaster finish.
In applications where the recommended thickness of 10mm is to be exceeded, the material should be built out to the full required thickness in 1 day in applications of 15mm allowing some drying between coats to minimise shrinkage and cracking.
All tools should be washed in water while material is still wet.
Plastalite Rehabilitation Render is supplied in 25kg plastic lined, multi-walled paper bags.
Shelf life is 12 months providing that the product is stored in a dry ventilated area in the original sealed bags.
