Plaster And Render Fibres

TDP Plaster And Render Fibres Available From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.

 Fibre technology to minimise shrinkage and cracking in plaster and render.

 Plaster and Render fibres minimise shrinkage and cracking by just adding to the mix.

 The fibres disperse quickly and evenly in the mix and do not affect the workability.  The fibres can be used in manual or mechanically applied mixes.

 Renders, particularly lime based, are susceptible to weathering of crack appear during the drying process.  Moisture can penetrate the cracks leading to significant problems at a later stage.  The addition of Fibres will help prevent this.

 

Suitable for use in rendering, undercoat and one coat plasters.

How To Use Plaster and Render Fibres

 For Render 2.2mm fibres

Using the scoop enclosed, measure out 20g of fibres (approx. 2 scoops) per 20/25kg of render mix.

 When adding to render, add the fibres to the water first, and mix for approximately 30 seconds before adding the sand and cement.

 

For Plaster 2.2mm fibres

Using scoop enclosed, measure out 20g of fibres (approx. 2 scoops) per 25kg bag of plaster.

When adding to plaster, add the fibres to the water first, and mix with a paddle for approximately 30 seconds before adding the dry plaster material.

 

Application

Apply the plaster or render in the traditional manner.

Adding fibres to the plaster or render mix does not affect the general standards used for mix rations.

 

These fibres are manufactured from polypropylene and being chemically inert will not cause irritation when handled.
