Now dont bite my head off merlin there is no way a top coat can come off on a decent scratch coat coz of mechanics.

they say you can stipple it with a stiff brush aswell so in other words weber are contradicting themselfs

dont know mate , how can a coloured render be different colours when its all suppsed to be same colour? on back of rend aid bags it states apply to a thickness of 2-3 mm with steel trowel and scratch,!
in original post i said rend aid was much different , maybe that has something to do with it ! do you think the whole building was scratched poorly , surely parts of it would be scratched deeper than others yet the whole lot has blown,
the rep has seen it already he took of a 1/2m2 and his mind was made up! i think his mind was made up before he even seen the building!

Merlin colours can be differentt and its not uncommon and i agree with simple these guys will try anything and everything to pass the blame so when he took his sample did he not show it to you and say "there you go no scratch"?

flynny not bein funny mate but i work with these renders every day i know what im doin and ive been rendering for over 20 years i know how to scratch renders , what im saying is and i think you missing the point is that the rendaid was different ,now i posted this in march stating the fact , i just seems weird that the only time ive ever had a top coat delaminate was on this rendaid, coincidence i dont think so!

Im not questioning your experience for one minute and you did mention the problem a while back but did the rep not show you the problem ie scratch coat? Im not here to defend plaster suppliers around the world im tryin to work out the problem.

sorry merlin, when you say its all blown, do you mean ALL of it or just the top coat on the rendaid that was different?

the top coats blown off the rendaid mate!

So you would be left with a scratch coat that shows it was scratched properly so how can they argue the toss you never scratched it?

if the whole lot has come off it cant be down to scratching because even with no comb it would try to hang on in places anyway. if the whole top coat has blown off, and all at the same time its gotta be down to adhesion or basically the opposite there was either no adhesion or something up with the rendaid that has stopped any passive suction. are you sure it wasnt the top coat that was the problem?

What was the top coat Merlin ?

Was there strength in the top coat ?

I had a job do similar on a s/c job and the top coat was the same strength as a digestive biscuit.... never did get to the bottom of it
