Introducing Silicone K1

17 November 2014

Introducing Silicone K1, a water repellent, cement based, self-coloured render providing an attractive, low maintenance finish.

Silicone K1 is designed to incorporate the benefits of silicone water repellents onto a cement-based render.

Silicone K1 has excellent handling properties and is designed for use with most spray machines. This is ideal for larger projects where speed of machine application can offer time saving benefits. 

Silicone adds a high water repellent quality while allowing water vapor to pass freely through the render, reducing the amount of dirt adhering to the surface. This will result in a freshly rendered appearance for a prolonged period of time. 

Silicone K1 will provide an attractive, low maintenance finish. It acts as a one-coat finish over moderate to lower strength block work. It provides a labour saving application and is cost effective. The self-coloured render offers a popular texture finish. This product is also suitable for hand application and can be used on a variety of substrates.

To ensure application, quality and performance requirements were met; extensive applicator trials were carried out during the Silicone K1 research & development process. Silicone K1 is Kitemarked and CE marked to BS EN 998-1:200 and is also ISO 9001 approved.
