Guys,

those who read my intro will know I'm keen to learn more on perfecting s&c rendering...especially as I have a job coming up :RpS_mellow:. Been told to invest in a serrated spat to open up the top coat, Unfortunately, my contact was a little sparse with the facts as to the benefits of doing this.

so, can anyone give me the low down on using a serrated spat? Is it something to use all the time or only if your trying to speed things up etc?

Any theory behind the method welcome, I hate not knowing the theory!

Why use S/C? Times have changed....use a polymer modified basecoat, scrim, primer and texture...or use the basecoat and paint it...

I know people still want it but they also want a warranty as well, so you need to go for the system finishes unless you would warrant s/c for 10 years?

the idea is that it lets the air in more allowing the render to pick up a bit quicker

as long as you give the customer what they want and a good job, that's all that matters

So, it seems it's a nice to have? If rendering on cooler days, maybe low suction from scratch coat you'd use the serrated spat to speed up the natural drying process? Presuming you were after it picking up quicker?

Yes. I don't use that often I saw a utube video someone using it and decided to give it a go.

When spraying the teeth cut the ribbons nice. Show up low spots and help with air pockets when hand applied.

Rule glides better too.
