Weber guides you through repairing fine cracks in monocouche render

Saint-Gobain Weber takes training in the specification and application of their innovative, market leading materials responsibly.

A team of technical advisors is available to support and advise, either over the telephone or on site, on the correct use of a diverse product offering.

“In addition to the Saint-Gobain Technical Academy here in Bedfordshire, one of several across the country,” says Rob Speke, training academy manager, Saint-Gobain Weber, “we now have a wide inventory of 'How to' videos posted on YouTube for specifiers and applicators who are unable to attend a related course at the Academy.”

'How to' videos have been created to address the most frequently raised technical enquiries received by Weber’s technicians for tile preparation, flooring products, renders and external wall insulation systems.

A popular and frequently viewed Weber video identifies the benefits and characteristics of weberpral monocouche renders.  This is a high performance range of low maintenance, cementitious, through-coloured renders in which small knocks and abrasions are not as noticeable as with traditional painted render. But if a fine crack appears, caused by drying shrinkage, aesthetic repairs can be easily carried out.

“With over 3,000 views this video is designed to help render applicators ensure that perfect aesthetics are easily achieved when dealing with fine cracks in monocouche render,” says Rob Speke. “By following a few simple stages - from opening the crack, to accurately preparing the render repair mix, achieving the correct application technique and the final finishing treatment - a perfect and satisfactory remedial job will be delivered.”

This video is one of 30 currently hosted on YouTube with plans for many more over the coming months.
