Renders & Finishes

Contemporary and traditional renders and finishes.

Structherm's quality renders and finishes are suitable for new build or refurbishment projects.

Many of the renders and finishes are also an integral feature of our External Wall Insulation (EWI) systems, and are also available as a render only option for new build applications. Continuous research and development programmes ensure that the performance of each product consistently meets the most demanding conditions likely to be encountered with a particular project.

Renders

A render is a basecoat upon which a variety of other finishes or finishing coats may be applied. There are five types of rendered basecoat available:

1. Standard
2. Fibre reinforced
3. Polymer modified
4. Lightweight
5. Bonding


All basecoats are manufactured from natural limestone and are supplied dry in 25 kg bags.

Finishes

Structherm’s finishes are grouped into Contemporary and Traditional ranges.

Contemporary (Acrylic)

Smooth and textured Acrylic finishes offer excellent durability, water vapour permeability and water repellence. They also offer superb protection against UV and are crack resistant.

The table below shows our range of ClassicPro finishes along with how they are applied. Each finish is available in any of our 280 standard colours.

Contemporary (Silicone)

Smooth and textured Silicone finishes offer outstanding repellence towards water and dirt, and retain their colour and cleanliness for longer than acrylic finishes.

The table below shows our range of ClassicPro finishes which provide excellent adhesion onto every kind of mineral substrate. The range is also particularly resistant to mould and fungi attack due to the inorganic pigments contained within the product. Each finish is available in any of our 280 standard colours.

Traditional (Brick Effect Render)

Structherm’s range of Brick Effect finishes are highly versatile two coat specialist render systems, providing the effect of real brickwork by using differently coloured, render mortar and face layers. Choose from 44 standard colours for use as the mortar or face layer. The system can be used for full area coverage or for brick features such as string courses, quoins or soldier courses.

Traditional (ArtBrick)

ArtBrick is a multistock brick effect render installed in the same way as Macerend, but with the addition of a dye applied to the face layer to achieve the multistock brick effect (choose from 4 standard multistock dyes). Choose from 44 standard colours for use as the mortar or face layer. The system can be used for full area coverage or for brick features such as string courses, quoins or soldier courses.

Structherm’s range of Stone & Ashlar Effect finishes are highly versatile two coat specialist render systems, providing the effect of real stone and ashlar stone by using differently coloured, render mortar and face layers.

Stone Effect Renders

The table below shows the two types of Stone Effect Render finishes. The colour of the render used is normally of traditional buff or stone colour, however we have 44 standard colours to choose from that can be used for the mortar or face layer and in any combination desired. Depending on the final aesthetic result required the face layer can be either smooth or traditional rustic style.

Traditional (Dash Receiver & Aggregate)

Structherm’s range of Dash Receiver and Aggregate provides a decorative, durable and cost effective finish applied in two stages. The final aesthetic appearance depends on the combination of coloured dash receiver and aggregate chosen.

Dash Receiver

Dash receiver is a specially formulated polymer modified through colour render that provides excellent adhesion and impact resistance. Click here to view our standard colour range. The dash receivers should be hand applied onto an appropriate basecoat using a hawk and trowel to a thickness of 6-8 mm.

Dash Aggregates (Iron Free)

Our high quality decorative dash aggregates allow you to not only create classic rendered pebble dashed walls, but also some very unique styles with our wide range of colours available. Click here to view our standard colour range. The dash aggregate is thrown onto the surface of the dash receiver, whilst still wet, in an upward motion using a hand scoop. For best results an even distribution of aggregate is necessary and any missed areas should be rectified immediately as it can not be touched up next day.
