Ecorend X32 One Coat Base is a cement based basecoat that has been highly polymer modified in order to offer improved adhesion, waterproofing and breathability. Suitable for use on multiple substrates once primed with Ecorend S10 Bonding Primer, this product can be applied in low temperatures by hand or by spray and can be used as a scratch basecoat ready to receive a through coloured render or as a flat finish ready to receive a thin coat render.
All surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and free of any material which may impair adhesion. Do not apply to shiny surfaces. Scaffolding must be independently tied to allow for uninterrupted application. Any faults in the structure, particularly those which may lead to moisture penetration, must be rectified. Mask around the areas where material is to be applied. Masking tape must be removed before the material has dried out. Beads and expansion joints should be included as required by the substrate and BS standards and carried through all applied materials.
Concrete, clay, lightweight block and brick – Ecorend S10 Bonding Primer
Ecorend X32 One Coat Base should be mixed with clean water at a rate of approximately 4-4.5 litres per 25kg bag using a suitable paddle or pan mixer, mix for 2 minutes, allow to stand for 2 minutes then re-mix. This process allows the additives to dissolve and activate.
To avoid dampness and discolouration rendering should be avoided below DPC or within 150mm of ground level. 6mm Base Coat (EWI system) Coat the insulation boards with X32 using a stainless steel float, and then use a 6mm notched trowel vertically – this will prepare the mortar to receive the reinforcing mesh. Bed in the mesh using a stainless steel float and ensure that the joints overlap by 100mm. Once the initial set has taken up or the following day apply a second layer of X32 at 3mm to produce a sandwich between the mesh and the second coat. Final thickness should be min. 6mm. Product can be brush keyed or sponge float finished as required, for suitable finish to be applied.
