Euromix FP Render

Save Time, Improve Adhesion & Reduce Costs!

Euromix™ Full Polymer Render is an acrylic modified pre-mixed polymer-based Render that can be applied to almost any substrate and due to its high adhesive qualities it is great for use on Polystyrene (EPS), and fibre cement (FC) in particular.

Developed and Made in Australia, an easy solution for the renderer - no gauging, no additives required. Simply add water, and render!

Combine Euromix™ FP (Full Polymer) Render and our new Euromix™ Texture Coatings for an even more attractive finish on your next project today.

FP Render is a AS1530.1 Non Combustible Render.

Euromix FP Render

Euromix FP Render is a dry mix, full polymer, cement based render formulated for application over sheet and panel substrates, like, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC),expanded polystyrene (EPS), fibre cement (FC) and plaster based materials. Euromix FP Render is mixed with water only (no added Bond).When used as a base coat, Euromix FP Render can be applied up to 3-4 mm thick in one coat (over masonry and similar solid substrates).

Euromix AAC Adhesive

Euromix™ AAC Adhesive is specially formulated for bonding aerated autoclaved concrete (AAC) lightweight panels and blocks.

Euromix™ AAC Adhesive is a white-cement based adhesive powder, designed for use as the bonding cement between autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels and blocks. Applied as a thin bed by hand, using a notched trowel, Euromix™ AAC Adhesive develops high tensile strengths after curing.

Special chemical additives ensure that the AAC Adhesive remains workable for up to 5 hours but cures sufficiently such that it can be over-coated 24 hours after application (in normal weather conditions).

Euromix™ AAC Adhesive comes in a pre-mixed 20kg bag form, it only requires water for its application.

Improve Render Workability

It is often overlooked that a basic requirement for achieving a good finish with render is ensuring that the wet render is properly mixed before application. A very wet mix will be difficult to apply and build up and will take a long time to dry.

A poorly mixed or dry mix will often fall off the wall during application and will not develop the required adhesive and impact strengths after curing.

Too much or too little solution in mixing can lead to shrinkage, cracking and low strengths in the cured render.

Using the right tools for Mixing

In order to achieve a well mixed render it is important to use the right tools and ingredients.

  • Clean, potable water.
  • Clean 20L bucket or cement mixer.
  • Handheld drill mixer with suitable render mixing paddle
  • Traditional cement mixer.
  • Euromix™ Bond (for Render, Cream and Skim).

Euromix™ Render is best mixed on-site, one bag at a time and in close proximity to the substrate to be rendered.

Euromix™ Suggested Correct Mixing Procedure

  1. Prepare the required volume of water or water & bond solution in a separate clean bucket. Use a measuring cup to ensure that the correct volumes are added. If using bond then stir the solution with a suitable mixing drill, to ensure that it is evenly dispersed in the water. It is recommended that solution for no more than 5 bags of Render be prepared at any stage. Re-Stir the solution each time before use.
  2. Pour 3.5L of the mixing solution into the mixing bucket then gradually add the 20kg bag of render powder while agitating the material with the mixer or drill.
  3. Once all the render powder has been added to the water & bond solution continue to mix thoroughly until the wet mix exhibits an even consistency - probably around 3 minutes.
  4. Add 0.5L more water & bond solution in gradual increments to the wet render and continue to mix thoroughly - around another 2 minutes.
  5. Allow the mixed render to 'stand' in the mixing bucket for 2-3 minutes to ensure the solution has 'wet' all components of the powder and to allow some of the desired early chemical reactions in the render to be established.
  6. Check the consistency of the render - it should be wet enough to hold a 'soft' peak when scooped onto a hawk. 7. Depending on the prevailing weather conditions each bucket of mixed render should be applied on the substrate within a maximum of 15-20 minutes. Any render left after that time should be discarded, along with any spillage and partially set material.

The numbers for QC! When mixed in controlled conditions, in accordance with the guidelines above, Euromix™ Render will exhibit a nominal density of 1.80 grams / millilitre (+ 0.0360 or 2%), when sampled, within 1 - 3 minutes after mixing is complete, from the top quarter of the mixing bucket.

So, Euromix™ Render, mixed in accordance with the guidelines above, contained in a filled to level, standard measuring cup of 240ml capacity, should weigh 432 grams (+ 8.64 grams).

The information contained in this document is typical and does not constitute a full specification or explanation of the subject under review. Conditions, product requirements and performance will vary from project to project. Readers should seek specific advice as it applies to their project.

Bond additive or not?

Bond or not? Euromix™ Render, Cream and Skim all require the addition of Euromix™ Bond to the mixing water.

The bond / water ratio for common substrates is;

  • Bond Water / Clay Bricks 1:19
  • Calcil / 1:15
  • AAC & Concrete / 1:9
  • FC & EPS Surfaces / 1:4
  • Render / 1:19

Euromix™ FP Render and LWHB Render are full polymer renders - NO BOND is needed in the water when mixing these products.
