■ Add AXEL 3000 directly to the mixing water and mix with the render. Replace 0.2L - 0.3L of water
volume for mixing a 25kg or 30kg bag, with 0.2L - 0.3L of AXEL 3000, mixing the water and
AXEL 3000 together first before mixing with the render.
■ When AXEL 3000 is used, always add the same amount to all mixes used on the project and
ensure that a whole facade is coated as there is likely to be a colour shade difference should the
AXEL 3000 only be used in part of the facade mix.
■ Avoid adding more than the stated quantities as this may affect the fi nish, performance and colour
of the render.
■ For guidance only, the setting time advantage when used at the recommended dosage rate is
between 1½ to 2 hours at 5°C.
This information is provided as guidance only.
■ 1 to 2 litres for the normal capacity of a spray render machine (mix of 6 x 30 kg bags) depending
on weather conditions.
Adding more than the recommended AXEL 3000 will not produce a faster setting time.
■ An excessive mixing ratio may be detrimental to the application and overall appearance of the
■ A preliminary test is recommended.
■ In cold weather, the ‘Conditions of use’ for one-coat renders must be respected when using
■ Renders must not be applied on frozen or thawing substrates or when there is a risk of the
substrate freezing over.
The use of AXEL 3000 is designed only to assist in reducing the initial setting time for one-coat
render systems during cold weather periods. The product may have less of an effect in highly damp
AXEL 3000 is NOT an Antifreeze.
