Winter Grade available now

With winter well and truly upon us, it is important to be aware of the slower curing times for acrylic textures in cold, damp weather. This means that most products will need to be left longer before commencing the finishing or recoating process.

Some ROCKCOTE Coloured Renders are available in a Winter Grade formula. These are specifically formulated for use in cool, damp conditions, and contain less wet edge extenders. Winter Grade is already in use by applicators in cold climate zones including Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.

Applicators using Coloured Renders in cool and damp conditions are encouraged to specify to their stockist that they would like to order Winter Grade (please note that minimum quantities apply for all Winter Grade products).

In very cold, damp conditions, applicators using ROCKCOTE products may use gas forced space heaters to assist with drying Coloured Renders, which are available for hire through many different companies. Ensure the Coloured Render does not get above 35°C and remember that it should not be applied if air and surface temperatures are below 5°C.

ROCKCOTE Coloured Renders available in Winter Grade include:
