K rend is a manufacturer. Monocouche is a type of render made by lots of manufacturers including K rend. so maybe re-ask the question.

Hello guys new to plasterers forum always had a nose on here for advice and what not, quick question I've done few jobs in k rend one thing that's annoying me is when scraping back tiny little holes appear sometimes not a lot just a couple I know how to fill them but what causes the krend to react like that as I do my two colour passes and close in then leave it till it's ready to be grated? Any advice

Do you use a serrated straight edge ?

Spat it over? Sorry mate you meaning thing one over ? Also have you used the power scraper the electric one are they any good and save time? Thanks a lot

I reckon you'd only need a power scraper to take the surface off when it's really hard so it can be barred,any other time the bar does most of it and is quick enough. Other than that get some double scratch floats.
