PoziCote™FR Fine Render is a polymer modified fairing mortar for applications in thin layers.
It produces a natural concrete Grey appearance to concrete or masonry surfaces. It can be applied from feather edge up to a maximum thickness of 5mm. PoziCote™FR Fine Render is shrinkage compensated and based on hydraulic binders, high-grade fillers and synthetic polymers.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
FEATURES • Shrinkage compensated allows for long term dimensional stability • Single component system of pre blended powder • Excellent bond strength and adhesion to concrete or masonry surface. • Feather edging capability. • Easy to use and apply. • For internal or external use. • Durable, low water permeation. • Can be used in vertical, horizontal and overhead application. • One component, simply add to water and mix
TRADES & APPLICATIONS
Concrete finishing / polishing
Please refer to the PiziCote™ FR Technical Data Sheet and MSDS for further detailed installation instructions and precautions
Pre-soak substrates with water to saturation point prior to applying PoziCote™ FR Fine Render. For very porous substrates it is essential that after pre-soaking the substrate, remove free water and apply Ramset Cemcrete™ allow it to reach a tacky consistency prior to application of PoziCote™ FR Fine Render.
Volume batching method – measure 5 Kg of Ramset PoziCote™ FR Fine Render to1.87 Ltr (max) of clean quality water. Place water in a suitable mixing vessel and add PoziCote™ Fine Render whilst continuously mixing with trowel in one operation for 3 to 5 minutes until fully homogenous, uniform and lump free.
Apply the mixed PoziCote™ FRFine Render to the prepared substrate by steel trowel from feather edge up to 5mm thickness. Placement should be carried out with a minimum of working and be allowed to partly set before finally towelling to a smooth finish.
PoziCote™ FR Fine Render is finished by striking off with a straight edge and closing with a steel float. Wooden or plastic floats or damp sponges may be used to achieve the desired surface texture.
Excess water on the surface will result in surface crazing and cracks. Do not proceed with the application when rainfall is imminent unless in a sheltered or protected situation.
In hot, dry windy condition all cementitious-based mortars such as PoziCote™ Fine Render must be protected against excessive rapid surface drying and evaporation by application of a curing membrane such as Ramset Cemcrete™.
PoziCote™ FRFine Render must be cured immediately after finishing in accordance with good concrete practice.In very extreme temperatures and drying conditions, supplementary curing with polythene sheeting, taped down at the edges, may be required.
