Introducing the new MAPEWALL GPR - General Purpose Render from Mapei

What Is MapeWall GPR?

MapeWall GPR is a general purpose render for internal and external use. A grey powder composed of cement, selected aggregates and special synthetic resins, which when mixed with water provides a render that is easy to apply on suitably prepared masonry substrates. MapeWall GPR enables surfaces to be finished in many products from the MAPEI ‘Protective and Decorative Wall Coatings’ line including variations from the Silancolor Range.

What is it used for?

• Smoothing walls.

• Dubbing out mortar.

• Render only basecoat with sponge finish.

• Render only with silicone and mineral finishes.

How Is It Used?

MapeWall GPR is suitable for rendering and levelling internal and external masonry substrates, in thicknesses up to 15 mm per layer, up to an overall maximum thickness of 40 mm.

Apply by trowel or machine. Uneven substrates may require a first coat to build out the thickness required. Level off with a straight edge or Darby. The system can be reinforced with MAPEI Mapetherm Net to help prevent cracking.

Consumption: 25 Kg will cover an average of 1.5 m² at 10 mm thick

Out of interest I'm using their tile adhesive and it doesn't have a use by date the manufacturers say two years is this the same? It has a bagged date but no use by.

What you paying on Parmurex mate?
Think I'm getting it for about 6-7 plus.
I got some today as they had no monogris so when my invoice comes through I'll let you know.

When you equate the whole Mapei system into it it becomes very cost effective, best example as below:

MapeWall GPR: £5.10 + VAT, covers 1.5m2 so equates to £3.40 per m2

Mapetherm Net: £35.25 + VAT covers 50m so equates to: £0.70 per m2

Mapertherm Silancolour Basecoat: £47.21 + VAT covers 60m2 so equates to: £0.78 per m2

Mapetherm Silancolout Tonachino 1.5mm: £38.00 + VAT covers 8m2 so equates to: £4.75 per m2

Total cost per m2: £9.63 + VAT


___________________________________________

Below is another basic quote for a 100m2 job including delivery:

Mapewall GPR: Quantity of 67 bags required: £341.70 + VAT

Mapetherm Net: Quantity of 2 Rolls required: £70.50 + VAT

Mapetherm Silancolour Basecoat Primer: 2 Tubs required: £94.42 + VAT

Mapetherm Silancolour Tonachino: 13 Tubs required: £494.00 + VAT

Next day delivery cost: £80.00 + VAT

Sub Total: £1000.62

VAT: £200.12

Total: £1200.74

This works out to pretty much £10.00 + VAT per m2 delivered

The thing to remember is; this will now be a fully approved system with guarantees - its not a hybrid system. Specifications can be requested and all materials including tinted Top Coats are available next day.

If you want to go for a higher spec product, I would advise the Mapetherm Silancolour Tonachino PLUS. This costs £60.00 + VAT per tub and will cover 10m2 as its a 1.2mm aggregate

Thought I'd update.
We've used this for a Tyrolean job.

Used straight onto new blockwork at around 10-15mm 2 passes wet on wet.
Rubs up lovely. No slumping/sagging.
It comes back a treat when floated.
This is just the first day.
I'll let you know how the rest goes and what it drys like.

I have never used ocr only ever used sand and cement . If you used this product on an internal job, can you skim it with board finish or multi finish ?

So we've done one elevation that was directly under sunlight all afternoon.
It showed some hairline cracks appearing. We rubbed it back up and sprayed it with water till we left.

We will know tomorrow what it's come out like. Being Tyroleaned so no biggie for us but would be if it was a float finish.
