I agree buddy but the customer wants silicone tc finish sprayed so just using Rasolite as a base mate

Nice...good option for quick waterproof coating not to heavy without the ball ache of hacking off...is Rasolate breathable?

I think u can sponge finish it if I remember.

I had the parex rep out on site the other day recommended parinter over good sound but cracked painted render and then acrylic paint or their thin coat but had to be something

I've never topped a render but lot of lads doing it at the mo...no way you can compete on price with hacking off so it's an option for me now

I haven't yet but this one is solid with really bad lines cut into it and makes a nice house look sh#t . Customers still recovering from the price a lime company gave them to hack it and state again.

You really have to give the customers up front options/ballpark costs these days otherwise it's wasted time....most don't have a clue

This Arenino? I have a couple of bags to try. Is this a flat mineral render you sponge up? So a flat but coloured render?

That's what I'm hoping John. One with a consistent colour would be a big seller. Not everyone likes the aggregate of thin coat and mono is mono.

My fear is with these flat coloured render is the bottom which goes off last full of water dries darker than the top which goes off quicker and dries faster so lighter.

Probably safer thinner.

How long you waited to sponge it?
Tbh I put a tight coat on and came back to sponge it about 20 minutes later it was firming slightly decided to give another tight coat didn't think I had it on thick enough then started sponging about 30 minutes after @theclemo told us not to much water on sponge at all , he was right (top man) , gave a very light sponge over again after that

Hi Mate, Arenino is hydrophobic in mass, so the sealer is optional same way as it is optional for Mono renders. Saying that it is a generally good practise to seal Mono renders but it is not typicaly done as it is expensive materials. Vimark sealers is competitively priced at £60 per 10L can which gives an output of about 60+ sqm, so about £1 per sqm. Vimarl sealer details:

Available also from our partnets @Plasterers1StopShop with the next day delivery

Yes. But don't do the arenino same day as bauwer. Do it a few days later.
