Monocouche Render

weberpral monocouche render is a cementitious, weather resistant render, suitable for most types of brick or blockwork. The through-colour and one coat features allow fast application with shorter programme periods, thereby reducing associated scaffolding and site costs and permitting the earlier completion of ground works. This advanced technology enables a one-coat application to full BS EN 13914 standard thickness with areas often applied and finished within the same day.

Aimed primarily at those using monocouche materials for the first time, this course explores the fundamental basics of good rendering practice along with the application and finishing techniques associated with this product. The one day course includes both theoretical and practical activity. Practical machine application techniques are included as part of the course.

Typical course content:

  • Introduction to Monocouche
  • Typical substrates and preparation required
  • Application process
  • Practical - machine & hand application
  • Scrape and dry-dash finish, ashlar detailing
