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

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.
