ProRend Colour is a cement-based, self-coloured, ready-mixed render. Specifically designed to incorporate the benefits of silicone water repellents into a cement-based render system. It prevents water from penetrating the masonry, while moisture accumulating inside is able to escape without problems. The silicone also prevents the migration of soluble salts through the cured render, thus combating secondary efflorescence. It is suited for areas where high water repellency is required. It leaves a scraped-through coloured finish.

The product can be applied from 15–25 mm and be cut to achieve Ashlar detailing. Easy to apply and highly suitable for application by machine or by hand. High adhesion on mineral backgrounds.

Composition:

High-quality, factory-composed dry mortar according to DIN 18557 and DIN 18550. Sand according to DIN 4226. Binding agent according to DIN 1060 and 1164, and approved additives for better workability.

Applications:

  • Can be applied as one-coat render on medium-density blockwork with normal suction.
  • For aerated concrete and low-density blocks, apply onto a backing of ProRend Prep or Lime Cement Primer.
  • For high-density masonry and concrete, apply onto a backing of ProRend Prep.
