K Rend Accelerator is a liquid additive used to reduce the waiting time before scraping K Rend scraped texture renders. It accelerates the curing time meaning that the render may be scraped earlier, enabling a faster job completion. It may be used in cold conditions to improve the scraping time (however all winter working precautions still apply). It has no effect on the appearance of the render.
Form: clear liquid
0.2 litres for every 25kg bag of render
0.2 litres for every 25kg bag of render (site trials should be carried out to determine the optimum dosage rate)
12 months if stored off the ground in original, sealed containers & protected against frost and away from direct sunlight
TC-Additive is a solvent-free additive to thin coat renders, used to reduce the drying time of synthetic resin renders under low temperature conditions.
TC-Additive is ideal for use in low temperature conditions. It helps promote the drying of synthetic resin plaster coatings in the temperature range of approx. + 5 °C to + 15 °C. Early rainproofing is also achieved when using TC-Additive.

|Shelf life / storage:
27 months from date of production. Store in dry, frost-free conditions.
K Rend R7 Acrylic is a primer used to go onto difficult substrates such as brick in preparation for our K Rend HP 12/HPX Base Coat which is applied whilst the R7 is still tacky. R7 Acrylic can be applied using a roller or by hand. This modified acrylic emulsion is used to improve the adhesion of K Rend renders to difficult substrates where the background does not provide sufficient key or has poor suction characteristics. The material is usually diluted before use.
|Coverage as a primer:
5 - 10 m² per litre of diluted material, depending on substrate and level of application
K Rend R10 is a modified acrylic bonding coat designed to improve the adhesion of K Rend renders to high suction substrates such as a light weight block where the background does not provide sufficient key or has poor suction characteristics. K Rend R10 can be applied using a roller or by hand. K Rend R10 prepares the background for application of K Rend one coat renders, without the need of a Base Coat.
1.2kg / m³
0.25 to 0.45kg/ m² approx.
| depending on substrate and application technique. Higher suction backgrounds require more material and may require two coats.
Alkali Resistant Reinforcing Mesh is a reinforcing scrim cloth to improve crack resistance of K Rend render systems. The material is manufactured from specially woven glass-fibre mesh fabric with specially designed mesh surface treatments to produce an alkali resistant, flexible mesh for use in any Portland cement, Hydraulic Lime, Acrylic or Latex based stucco, mortar or surfacing material.
(55m roll) is used to reduce the build up of stress at typical stress points in the building, this minimises the potential for cracking.

The K Rend Expansion Bead is a seamless product with a co-extruded central flexible rib. To be used either horizontally or vertically where there is a change in the underlying substrate or to break up larger areas of render where slight expansion movement may be expected.
The K Rend Stop Bead is designed to provide a finished protected edge at window and door reveals and other locations where there is a change of final finish or depth at junctions with alternative claddings.
The K Rend Drip Bead is for use in locations similar to Bellcast Beads, provides a rain water drip edge but that it is flush with the render thus alleviating the possibility of water retention on the sloping surface of a Bellcast with the attendant staining risk.
The K Rend Angle Bead is for use where a True Sharp corner is required, protecting the render at its most vulnerable position from impact damage.
The K Rend Bellcast Bead is used at the base of a rendered wall and at DPC level, over door and window reveals and any location where rain water is to be thrown clear of the substrate below by the flare of the bell shape design. A traditional approach.
The New K Rend Heavy Duty Angle Bead is used for the same purpose as angle bead above but primarily in thicker traditional twin coat renders with the secondary (twin nose) providing a depth gauge for the base coat. The arris of these beads providing a small radius corner. design. A traditional approach.
For use in thin coat systems. Designed to provide a continuous mesh reinforcement around the corner with the benefit of an underlying rigid uPVC supporting bead beneath.
The K Rend Angle Bead with Mesh is the same design criterion as for our other angle beads but with the added protection of unbroken mesh reinforcement around the corner beneath the bead.
