Thincoat Render

Thincoat render systems have a high polymer content, this enables it to be applied thinner than traditional renders, while still keeping its strength. 

Its normally applied between 6mm and 10mm in two passes, with a reinforcing nylon mesh imbedded between the layers. This and the polymers gives these render systems more flex and durability to monocouche and traditional renders. Top these with either a silicon or acrylic topcoat, makes for a superior and long lasting job.

A stress pad is fitted to every corner of any window or door to give extra strength, as these are weak spots of a building and are prone to movement which may cause a crack.

Here at Polar we either lay our basecoat on by hand or spray depending on the size of the job. We bed our mesh into the first coat, followed by a float and sponge on our second coat to get a nice smooth finish ready to receive a silicone topcoat.
