New Building Products at Greengate's: K Rend K1 Silicone

Greengate's, your local builders merchant, is proud to announce that we are now an official supplier of K1 Silicone Scraped Texture Render, manufactured by leading brand K Rend.

Silicone technology for water resistance that works

K Rend is the UK's largest independent manufacturer of silicone render, with more than 28 years' experience in the field. With some of the most advanced production facilities in the world, the company is committed to innovation and excellence, responding to the constantly-changing needs of the industry via a process of continuous professional development.

Silicone K1 from K Rend has been specifically engineered to incorporate all the benefits of silicone water repellents as an integral aspect of cement-based render systems. The technology used in the manufacture of Silicone K1 imparts an exceptional degree of water repellence to rendered surfaces yet still allows water vapour to migrate freely through, allowing the substrate to 'breathe'.

Once applied according exactly to the manuf­ac­turer's instruc­tions, Silicone K1 delivers a water repellent surface and freshly-rendered appearance, both of which are designed to be extremely durable. The dry finish given by the product is especially resistant to the growth of algae, as well as the natural phenomenon of lime bloom.

K Rend's bestselling Silicone K1 can be applied by hand in the traditional method. For larger projects, in which the increased speed of machine application can provide time- and cost-saving benefits, the product can also be used successfully with most standard render spray machines.
