you should only add lankolatex to basecoats bloner as it can affect the colour and parex only spec it for basecoat

the spec i have here is to put it 1-1 in every coat. maybe the architect has made his own version up

Parex told me not to put latex in the colour only in the parmurex and 1 to 1 is way wrong.... its 9or10 parts water to 1 part latex or 500ml per 30kg bag of parmurex so if you use 5 litres of water to mix a bag of parmurex put one coke bottle size of latex in with it

This job has been priced 3 times now. Before i start i will put something in writing to cover myself
Did u know that with the parex guarantee the applicator is nothing to do with the defects after 6 months. As long as the spec is correctly followed

Did a 1/2m2 patch today half engineering brick half felt and eml. Mixed it 5:1 with 50/50 sbr and water. On for 9.30 and still wet at 3pm. Very nice stuff to use but hangs around a bit.

We use it as a basecoat with lanco in it for refurb jobs ready for an acrylic finish or just as OCR.

I couldn't get on with parmurex at all, really nice to lay on....But was really sticky to float and seemed to tear and rip....was rubbing up and spongeing like normal S&c in a stairwell.....

its more like a calc cement than ocr being sand and cement - treat it like a mono and you will never turn back, sprays wonderful.

What is calc cement? Never heard of it. I know of C&G but yet to try it.

you would have to ask Warrior mate as I aint 100% but from what i can gather its based more on calciate and was/is very popular over in germany/europe etc, think they use it over clinckers alot there? I might be wrong

It's not a cement , but a pre bagged finely crushed calcinated flint, which is mixed with lime in comes in the bag wet and they used to just use a small amount of cement to set it off, should imagine the closest thing to it is lime mortar really, there was a company that did a dry powder version but it came in a silo and had a great pump underslung on it, Sakret i think it was called, used to plough loads on

well there you are then. I have used sakret renders over here before for thermal and masonry they also contain alot of lime.

Forget the C&G bit then i was told it was very similar but from what paul says it is not although C&G is similar to parmurex
