1) K Rend Textured Finish.

They can also be used as a finish in conjunction with a K Rend Base Coat. To achieve the required finish, float to a level surface then scrape the complete surface evenly with a scraping tool when the render is set but not hard, removing 2mm, to produce a uniform texture. This type of application is suitable for Ashlar cutting.


2) K Rend Dash Receiver (Dry Dash).

These products are designed to have excellent workability and open time properties when used as backgrounds for 4-12mm dry dash or roughcast finishes. The finished thickness is normally determined by the size of the aggregate. Apply a uniform butter coat and throw the aggregate onto the surface while the render is still 'green'.
