Title: Proprietary renders

Ref Code: IP16/03
Authors: A W Stupart

Abstract1: Proprietary render products offer benefits such as less waste, opportunities for machine application and fewer workmanship errors. Despite extensive use in continental Europe and their benefits on projects, use remains limited partly due to a lack of independent data on performance. This paper provides the results of laboratory tests on four products. Bond strength, resistance to water penetration and freeze/thaw durability were superior to traditional render; however, they showed reduced water vapour permeability.
