An acrylic render is any type of render that uses acrylic in the mix, which makes it more flexible than traditional render mixes. This means that it’s suitable to be applied to most surfaces whilst being strong and flexible.
The flexibility of the acrylic render reduces the risk of cracking after it has been applied, especially with lightweight substrates (i.e. fibre cement sheeting) where movements happens due to thermal expansion – this is where acrylic renders are very important. Our render products, which use acrylic, have a much greater flexibility, this helps ensure cracks don’t appear when the substrates make small movements.
Rockcote offers three different types of acrylic render, which are used depending on the purpose i.e., finish, texture or basecoat:
Is a topcoat and finish in one – with no need to paint after application. Our Coloured Render range has various textures & finishes and can also be tinted to any other commercially available colour. See https://rockcote.com.au/coloured-render
Painted Textures are an acrylic render with texture that requires the topcoat of paint such as Rockcote Armour (membrane paint). Our Painted Textures comes in various sand profiles for you to choose from which will give you a textured finish underneath the topcoat.
Polymer Render Grey and Off White area flexible acrylic basecoat suitable to be applied over substrates such as fibre cement and painted substrates where tolerance to movement and good adhesion must be considered. Rockcote Polymer Render Grey also sponges to an attractive coarse finish and is ideal for being overcoated with Rockcote topcoats.
*Subject to the substrate and finish selected.
Rockcote Polymer Render Grey or Off White are flexible acrylic based coatings for use on substrates such as fibre cement and painted substrates where tolerance to movement and good adhesion must be considered.
Rockcote Coloured Renders offer a tough, flexible and water resistant finish with long-term exterior protection, designed for Australian conditions. With various textures and finishes available and tintable to any commercially available colour. The advantage of Coloured Renders comes with the depth of colour that permeates the entire render layer maintaining a rich, full colour.
Rockcote Textures add depth and dimension like no other wall coating. They are perfect for enhancing a specific architectural style, or evoking the natural beauty of sand, marble or stone. Rockcote Textures create attractive, tactile surfaces with intentional character. Designed to be overcoated with Rockcote Armour.
