ROCKCOTE Earthen Render Medium is an economical way to transform the health of a building. Clay has the capacity to absorb odours and impurities in the air, and to regulate humidity, thus providing a very comfortable and healthy living environment. It is both beautiful and durable, and has been used for centuries as a sustainable building material.
Suitable: for interior walls and sheltered exterior walls (eg with verandah or large eaves). Ideal on stable substrates such as brick and block and hempcrete, but can be used on plasterboard with correct preparation. Lime renders are more suitable for exterior walls or in wet areas.
Appearance : is a smooth render finish or a more rustic look depending on application technique.
Colour: an off-white colour. It can be tinted to a range of colours with powdered oxides. See Advice on tinting with oxides.
Odour: is nil
Durability: When dry, clay is a naturally dirt repellent surface. However, it can be clear coated with ROCKCOTE Repel for extra water repellency in vulnerable areas such as kitchens and exposed exterior walls.
Vapour Permeability: is superb. Clay allows surfaces to breathe and offers positive moisture regulating and mould inhibiting properties.
Application: is with a trowel, as for regular plasters and renders. May be applied by hand.
Preparation: see ROCKCOTE Systems Guide for the correct preparation and application procedure on different substrates.
