Acrylic Rendering

An acrylic render is basically the type of render that uses acrylic. Acrylic is a type of plastic. The addition of acrylic makes the render a lot stronger and flexible than the usual render mixed available in the market. This means that this render is a lot less likely to crack after it has been applied. Now you can easily do this painting by using acrylic sprays and layering on the walls, and in this case, you need to hire some acrylic painters to do this task more professionally.  

Advantages of Acrylic Rendering


The biggest advantage of applying acrylic rendering to the exterior of your home is the fact that it is very unlikely that this render will crack. Acrylic rendering is a durable paint and you will get best longevity of these painting. Due to various reasons, the walls in your home constantly expand and contract and this is a cause of worry to many renders. But, this is one thing that you will not have to worry. Due to its flexibility, the render holds steady and maintains that amazing look.

  • Acrylic rendering gives you the leverage to color as per your choice. This render is very attractive and can be applied in a range of ways.  You can also create different finishes with this paint.  For example, you could choose to opt for a finish that is as smooth as concrete or maybe go for a textured finish, which ever suits you. Additionally, you can apply acrylic rendering on a range of other areas like painted walls, concrete, timber and others.

  • Acrylic render is also incredibly fast drying, taking just a few days to cure instead of up to a month like traditional render.  At the same time, it is also water resistant and will not succumb to bacteria and fungus.

Acrylic renders also allow the material underneath the render to breathe. This is extremely important because it affects the home directly. By letting the material breather, the acrylic render allows for a drier and in turn a healthier home.

  • First apply your base coat and ensure it is flat and uniform. There should be no trowel marks on the surface and the thickness should be consistent.

  • Next, apply a coat of primer once the base coat has dried. After the primer is dry take your top coat renders and ensures it is properly mixed and prepared. You can then apply the render using a steel trowel.

  • Flatten the render with your trowel until the first set is achieved. Ones the curing starts, the render will skin over. It is important to remove the excess render before the curing starts.

  • Now you will need to go back over the render with an acrylic trowel and remove any excess render. What this will do is flatten the render and reduce its thickness to just more than the aggregate size. i.e. for a 1.5mm render this will end up between 1.5mm and 2.0mm thick.

Lastly, make sure there are no drips or trowel marks on the render.
