Ecorend QS1 Quick Set is a liquid accelerator solution for Monocouche through-coloured render systems to speed up the time to scrape during colder application periods.
It directly replaces a proportion of the product gauging water and, if added at the correct dose, it will achieve a 20°C scrape time when working at 5°C. The accelerator is colourless and has no effect on the appearance of the finished product.
Ideal for use when hand mixing or using a render pump (i.e. with separate mixing and pumping chambers) or a metering system for accelerators. If using a water butt, measure water out, add QS1 to the water and mix thoroughly.
NOTE: The product is NOT an antifreeze. Always ensure that scraping is continued at the same
time around the building to ensure colour consistency. The product is not recommended for use
in warm weather.
The instructions regarding the application of Monocouche renders still apply with respect to cold weather working. The substrate must not be frozen, and material should not be applied if there is a risk of frost within 24 hours. The minimum application temperature is 5°C for all Monocouche
