    Unitex Uni-Trowel 888 MediumTexture 15L

    Size: 15L pail

    Coverage:

    Fine: 9-10 m2

    Suitable over: Unitex Specialty Renders

    Apply with: Trowel

    Safe Use: Refer to the MSDS

    As the name implies, this range of Unitex Textured Finishes is designed for trowel application. The products in the Uni-Trowel Décor™ range are applied as a single coat, with the exception of the finer finishes (146 and 333) which due to substrate and or weather conditions, may require an additional wet on wet coat.  Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are acrylic-bound textured coatings designed for decorating interior and exterior walls. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are suitable for use over surfaces prepared with Render from the Unitex Specialty Renders range. A one coat application offers a long life heavy duty coating. Fine texture coats, i.e. Unitex 146, may require wet on wet two coats. The majority of our Finishes are ready-to-use, water-based products. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are ideal for commercial and residential exterior walls. Due to the strong binding power of the acrylic, an impact-resistant coating results.  The surface prevents scuffing and is able to withstand hard knocks. Uni-Trowel Décor range are available pre-coloured in 15ltr pails, they contain quality graded fine mineral components and aggregates, together with non-absorbent extenders bound by a well-proven acrylic co-polymer. Coverage rates vary considerably with the surface condition and absorption effect. Typical coverage rates are 6 -10m² per pail. There are several grades of Uni-Trowel Décor.

     

    Biological Resistance
    Resistance to attack from bacteria and fungi is provided. This product being a water based acrylic system offers safe handling and low toxicity properties. Dirt, grime and dust on the surface of coatings will act as seed beds for bacterial attack, therefore cleaning and maintenance of your coating is essential to hinder bacterial and fungal attack.

     

    Fire Resistance The full Unitex coating system when subjected to the Early Fire Hazard Tests – Australian Standard AS1530.3:1999 meets the strictest standards.

     

    Water Resistance
    The coating, even at exceptionally high build, is formulated with a water vapour permeability factor to allow water vapour from the substrate to leave unhindered and to rainproof the exterior. Rising damp and elevated levels of moisture in the substrate will damage, and possibly delaminate, the surface coating. Please ensure that damp coursing the substrate is in place and prior test moisture content with a moisture meter (maximum 12% WME is allowed) (Builder responsibility).

     

    Colour
    The pigmentation is completely integrated during the manufacturing process, which means colour through the entire film thickness. Applied Finishes are available in a practically unlimited range of full colour to pastel shades. Please contact Unitex for the full range of colours available.
    Note: Some deep tones cannot be supplied in applied finishes. Contact Unitex for your specific solution. All colours will fade to some degree with time in exterior systems. Do not apply pigmented texture coats over fresh and or not fully cured renders as efflorescent damage (white blotching) may occur. Each pail has a label with the unique code identifying the particular texture type, colour and batch number. This coding ensures that if you require additional product (say to finish off a job), Unitex can match the texture and colour to the original. Note: Conditions on site may change and therefore colour outcome may be different when applied under varying weather conditions.  It is advisable always order 1 or 2 more pails than are required for the job. The pails have a strong sealed lid to prevent spillage if they should tip over before opening. Even after opening the lid still fits tightly enough when re-sealing to prevent contamination of the remaining product. The product must be protected from heat and cold during transit and storage.

     

    Application Details
    A minimum of 72 hours, under ideal temperate conditions, is required for through-dry (and cure) of the render, when the surface is trough dry the Unitex Textured Finish coat may be applied. Dry is measured to be less than 12% WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) where measured on a Protimeter® Moisture Meter. The substrate must be clean before applying the Finish coat. Any crumbling, loose or damaged substrate render must be removed and the surface patched and made good prior to coating. All surfaces must be free of grease, oils, dirt and dust. Pre-painted surfaces must have flaking paint wire brushed back to a sound substrate. Unitex recommends a base coat of a pigmented Unitex Uni-Substrate Sealer (2 coats) over old renders prior to application of the surface finishes. If multi coats are desired then a minimum of 72 hours between each coat is required. All Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are designed to overcoat Unitex Render from our specialty render range. See Unitex Renders sections for information on suitable base render to use. Application should not be carried out under excessively cold conditions (below 7 °C) or in hot windy conditions (above 32°C).

     

    Site
    Unitex strongly advises sign off on all coating systems. Always provide the Builder and Designer with a site texture sample of minimum 2m², finish and colour for written approval nominated the Unitex specified system.

    Before application of any render the surface of the substrate must be clean, dry and free of any debris. This means that any loose or damaged substrate must be removed, or patched and made good, prior to application of the base render.

    The substrate surface must be cleaned free of any grease, oils, scaling laitance, efflorescence, form-oil compounds, mould, fungi, rust, dirt, dust or any other foreign matter.

    It is the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor to make good any substrate before the render is applied. Contact Unitex for advice or site visit by our representatives.

    Adequate expansion joints are required to minimise cracking on the surface of the render. Location of the expansion joints is also the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor. Unitex® recommends expansion joints to every elevation and between different substrates, to allow for building movements and or stresses. Ideally, expansion joints should be at all penetrations to wall surface.

    If such expansion joints are not provided by the Builder or Head Contractor, cracking due to movement of the substrate may occur. This is in no way indicative of faulty material. Rather it indicates sub-standard building practice.

     

    Adding Water

    Uni-Dry Cote® Render™ products are dry powder-based products. This means that you are getting a 100% active product. All that is required is for clean water to be mixed in, on site, immediately prior to application to the substrate.

    The recommended starting point is to add approx. 25% by volume, (based on the amount of powder render to be used), of water into a clean container. Then slowly add the powder, with drill mixing, until the desired slump (consistency) is achieved.

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® BBR should be left a minimum 72 hours after application and wait until fully cured before overcoating with a texture from the Unitex Applied Finishes range.

    • Trowels on easily, smoothly and thinly

    • Is polymer-modified for strong adhesion to surface

    • Is more water resistant than conventional render

    • Just Add Water – less margin for errors

    • An integral component in the Uni-Base Board EIFS system

     

    Guide to Good Mixing Consistency

    1. Add the contents of the bag slowly to 4 litres of water (25% volume of entire bag) with vigorous drill mixing to ensure a lump free render of required slump.

    2. The mix can be later water thinned to required viscosity.

    3. Ensure wall surface is stable, clean, dry and free of dust, etc prior to application.

    4. For difficult masonry and non-masonry surfaces contact Unitex for product and surface preparation advice.

    Designed for application over difficult substrates as primary key coat. The strongest adhering render in the range. Requires the addition of 5-10% cement (drill mixed) into the Unitex Polymer Render just prior to use, which aids in faster cure and setting. Coverage for key coating is approximately 8-10 m2 per pail.

     

    Size: 19kg bags or 15L pail

    Coverage: 8-10m2

    Suitable for: 15L Pail – Painted Brick, New & / or Old Brick,
    In-situ Concrete (Rough), Fibrous-Cement Sheeting

    15kg Bag – New & / or Old Brick,

    Apply with: Trowel

    Safe Use: Refer to the MSDS 

    Unitex® Polymer Render is a trowel-applied acrylic filling and levelling compound, suitable for application on dry, non-porous and difficult surfaces. Unitex® Polymer Render is also used for patching, levelling, skim coating and restoration of damaged surfaces. Unitex® Polymer Render is the strongest adhering render available from the Unitex® range of speciality render products.

    Unitex® Polymer Render is designed for use over FRC sheeting as a levelling preparation skim coat and is trowel applied prior to over coating with Texture from the Unitex Applied Finishes range.

    Unitex® Polymer Render is supplied in 15 litre sealed pails and is drill mixed (Ribbon Blade) with 5-10% cement added immediately prior to its application. Unitex® Polymer Render is also available in ready-to-use 19kg bags, see mixing guide below for consistent quality.

    Approximate coverage per pail or bag is 8-10m² (over reasonably level FRC sheeting).

    Direct from the pail, Unitex® Polymer Render can be used internally up to a depth of 3 mm and externally up to a depth of 5 mm. Adding 5-10% cement allows for greater depths of patching and rendering. Added cement amount may vary to allow for faster setting and rain proofing time.

    Once the Unitex® Polymer Render is on the wall it must be trowel finished with speed immediately, as this type of modified render tends to dry from the surface first. Unitex® Polymer Render is not recommended for application where coating thicknesses greater than 5 mm are required.

    Note: All Unitex® Render products are designed to be over coated with a Unitex® Applied Texture and two coats of Uni-Flex PTC™.

     

    Condition of Substrate

    The substrate surface must be dry, cleaned free of any grease, oils, scaling laitance, efflorescence, form-oil compounds, mould, fungi, rust, dirt, dust or any other foreign matter.

    It is the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor to make good any substrate before the render is applied.

    Adequate expansion joints are required to minimise cracking on the surface of the render. Location of the expansion joints is also the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor. Unitex® recommends expansion joints to every elevation and between different substrates, to allow for building movements and or stresses. Ideally, expansion joints should be at all penetrations to wall surface.

    Add water, Mix & Apply

    Unitex Uni-Dry Cote® unique powder finishes are dry powder-based products. They are a cement modified, polymer-based blend of fine marble, quality-graded mineral and polymeric additives to provide a 100% active product. On-site, all that has to be added is water to provide a ready-to-apply finish.

    Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are polymer/mineral bound textured coatings designed for decorating interior and exterior walls. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are suitable for use over surfaces prepared with render from the Unitex Specialty Renders range. A one coat application offers a long-life, heavy-duty coating.

    Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are ideal for commercial and residential exterior walls. Due to the strong binding power of the acrylic, an impact resistant coating results.  The surface prevents scuffing and is able to withstand hard knocks.

    Unitex Uni-Dry Cote® Powder Finishes are supplied in 20kg multi-walled paper sacks. They contain quality graded fine mineral components and aggregates, together with non-absorbent extenders bound by a well-proven polymer system. Typical coverage is 8-12m² per bag.

    There are four grades of Unitex Uni-Dry Cote®.  

    In order, from coarsest to finest, they are;

    Unitex 855 – Medium Towel Finish

    Unitex 846 – Fine Trowel Finish

    Uni-Cote Dry Powder Finishes:

    Biological Resistance 

     

    Resistance to attack from bacteria and fungi is provided. This product being a cement modified water based polymer system offers safe handling and low toxicity properties. Dirt, grime and dust on the surface of coatings will act as seed beds for bacterial attack, therefore cleaning and maintenance of your coating is essential to hinder bacterial and fungal attack.

     

    Fire Resistance

    The full Unitex coating system when subjected to the Early Fire Hazard Tests – Australian Standard AS1530.3:1999 meets the strictest standards.

     

    Water Resistance

    The coating, even at exceptionally high build, is formulated with a water vapour permeability factor to rainproof the exterior and allow water vapour from the substrate to leave unhindered. Rising damp and elevated levels of moisture in the substrate will damage, and possibly delaminate, the surface coating. Please ensure that damp coursing the substrate is in place and prior test moisture content with a moisture meter (maximum 12% WME is allowed) (Builder responsibility).

     

    Colour

    The Unitex Uni-Dry Cote® Powder Finishes are not pigmented products. They dry on the surface to a ‘cement-off-white’ colour. The desired topcoat colour is achieved by application of a pigmented protective membrane such as Unitex Uni-PTC for a matt surface effect or Unitex Uni-Flex Membrane for a satin surface finish. 

     

    Application Details
    A minimum of 72 hours, under ideal temperate conditions, is required for through-dry (and cure) of the render, when the surface is through dry the Unitex Textured Finish coat may be applied. Dry is measured to be less than 12% WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) where measured on a Protimeter® Moisture Meter.

    The substrate must be clean before applying the Finish coat. Any crumbling, loose or damaged substrate render must be removed and the surface patched and made good prior to coating. All surfaces must be free of grease, oils, dirt and dust. Pre-painted surfaces must have flaking paint wire brushed back to a sound substrate. Unitex recommends a base coat of a pigmented Unitex Uni-Substrate Sealer (2 coats) over renders prior to application of the surface finishes.

    If multi coats are desired then a minimum of 72 hours between each coat is required.

    All Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are designed to overcoat Unitex Render from our specialty render range. See Unitex Renders sections for information on suitable base render to use. Unitex Uni-Dry Cote® Powders, when through dry and cured, are to be over coated with two coats of a Unitex Uni-PTC Protective Membrane. 

    Application should not be carried out under excessively cold conditions (below 7 °C) or in hot windy conditions (above 32°C).

     

    Guide to Good Mixing Consistency

    1. Add the contents of the bag slowly to 4 litres of water (25% volume of entire bag) with vigorous drill mixing to ensure a lump free render of required slump.  Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes and re-whip with mixer to allow efficient wetting and ideal application consistency.

    2. The mix can be later water thinned to required viscosity within 1 hour of initial mixing.

    3. Ensure wall surface is stable, clean, dry and free of dust, etc prior to application.

    Unitex Fast R Render 16Kg

    Unitex Uni-Dry Cote Fast-R Render 16Kg

    Designed for application over clean brickwork and blockwork. It is available in medium grade and used for 1 coat application to thicknesses of skim coat to 10mm. Can be finished to a tight and smooth surface. Easy to use for all skill levels.

     

    Size: 16kg bags

    Coverage: 2.5-3.5m2

    Suitable for: New Bricks, Old Bricks, Cement Block

    Apply with: Trowel

    Safe Use: Refer to the MSDS 

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render is a premium product specially formulated to be applied as a single coat either thick or thin with optimum workability, ease of application, so easy that you can relax as you work, and able to close over readily when floated or sponged. Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render is suitable for covering all sound, dry masonry surfaces such as brickwork and concrete blockwork, and performs the function of leveling and protecting masonry walls.

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render is cement based and polymer modified for strong adhesion to sound masonry surfaces. Uni–Dry Cote® Fast–R Render is applied directly onto clean, dust and debris-free, dry and cured masonry surfaces by trowel and can be screeded if desired before being rubbed up to a true and even surface with a float. This product is workable at varying thicknesses from 4 to 10 mm. As thicker coatings can be applied in one coat and finished off very easily, applicators do not have to wait 3-7 days or more for a first coat of render to dry before applying a second coverage of render.

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render can be simply overcoated with any of the range of Unitex Applied Finishes coating systems such as factory tinted Uni-Trowel Décor 155 liquid texture or neutral Uni-Cote® 855 blended dry powder texture and after the texture coat is dry, a suitable factory tinted topcoat such as Uni-PTC can be applied.

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render is supplied in ready-to-use 20 kg bags. Each bag allows up to 15 litres of wet render to be prepared by mixing the bag contents with approximately 4-5 litres of clean water and drilling for homogeneity.

    Coverage per bag depends on the desired thickness of the render and at low build thicknesses of 4 mm covers approx. 2.5-3.5 m².

     

    Condition of Substrate

    Before application of any render, the masonry surface must be clean, dry, cured and free of any dust and debris. This means that any loose or damaged substrate must be removed, or patched and repaired and any moisture must also evaporate out prior to application of Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render.

    The substrate surface must also be cleaned free of any grease, oils, scaling laitance, efflorescence, form-oil compounds, mould, fungi, rust, dirt, dust or any other foreign matter. Pre-painted surfaces must be either tested for adhesion² or wire-brushed back to the bare substrate.  Some difficult surfaces may require a render pre-treatment.

    It is the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor to make good any substrate to be acceptable before the next coat is applied. If in doubt, contact Unitex for advice and a site inspection visit by a Technical Sales Representative.

    Adequate expansion joints are required to minimise cracking on the surface of the render. Location of the expansion joints is also the responsibility of the Builder or Head Contractor. Unitex recommends regular expansion joints to every elevation, between different substrates and between floor levels, to allow for building movements.

    If such expansion joints are not provided by the Builder or Head Contractor, cracking due to movement of the substrate may occur. This is in no way indicative of faulty material. Rather it indicates sub-standard building practice.

     

    Adding Water

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render products are dry powder based products. This means that you are getting a 100% active product. All that is required is for clean water to be mixed in, on site, immediately prior to application to the substrate.

    The recommended starting point is to add approx. 25% by volume (based on the amount of powder render to be used), of water into a clean container (approx 4 litres per bag). Then slowly add the powder, with drill mixing, until the desired slump (lump-free consistency) is achieved.

     

    Drying

    In dry, mild conditions, Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render should be dry after 72 hours after application. When dry, Uni-Dry Cote®Fast-R Render can be overcoated with a texture from the Unitex Applied Finishes range. With certain site conditions such as shaded areas, lower temperatures or high humidity, curing of the render may take longer, even up to 7-10 days. Always check the weather forecast before applying renders to masonry surfaces as rain, especially within the first 8 hours after application, has a tendency to damage and weaken the render or at best, leave water marks. Heavy rain at any time during the initial 2-3 weeks may leave water marks on the surface. Should rain damage occur, the render integrity and adhesion must be checked, and any necessary repairs carried out and then allowed to fully dry prior to allowing Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render to be overcoated.

    Both frosty conditions and excessively high temperatures should be avoided. Unitex recommends applying Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render in temperatures greater than 8ºC and less than 30ºC. Should hot and windy conditions be encountered after commencing rendering, dampen the substrate with water. Do not apply render until the “wet” look has receded and the surface has absorbed the free water. This will enable Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render to remain as workable as it is in milder conditions.

     

    Unitex® Uni-Dry Cote® Fast–R Render:

    • Premium render that offers greater efficiencies to applicators such as moving the scaffolding much less

    • Trowels on easily in both thick and thin layers.

    • Most jobs need only one coat of Uni-Cote® Fast–R Render – you decide how thick it should be!

    • Can be screeded to a smooth surface

    • Improved workability and finishes off without holes or tearing

    • Is polymer–modified for strong adhesion to masonry surfaces

    • Just Add Water– less margin for errors

    • Is render machine pumpable

    • After drying can be overcoated with Unitex Applied Textures

    • Consistent quality

    As the name implies, this range of Unitex Textured Finishes is designed for trowel application. The products in the Uni-Trowel Décor™ range are applied as a single coat, with the exception of the finer finishes (146 and 333) which due to substrate and or weather conditions, may require an additional wet on wet coat.  Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are acrylic-bound textured coatings designed for decorating interior and exterior walls. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are suitable for use over surfaces prepared with Render from the Unitex Specialty Renders range. A one coat application offers a long life heavy duty coating. Fine texture coats, i.e. Unitex 146, may require wet on wet two coats. The majority of our Finishes are ready-to-use, water-based products. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are ideal for commercial and residential exterior walls. Due to the strong binding power of the acrylic, an impact-resistant coating results.  The surface prevents scuffing and is able to withstand hard knocks. Uni-Trowel Décor range are available pre-coloured in 15ltr pails, they contain quality graded fine mineral components and aggregates, together with non-absorbent extenders bound by a well-proven acrylic co-polymer. Coverage rates vary considerably with the surface condition and absorption effect. Typical coverage rates are 6 -10m² per pail. There are several grades of Uni-Trowel Décor.

    Biological Resistance
    Resistance to attack from bacteria and fungi is provided. This product being a water based acrylic system offers safe handling and low toxicity properties. Dirt, grime and dust on the surface of coatings will act as seed beds for bacterial attack, therefore cleaning and maintenance of your coating is essential to hinder bacterial and fungal attack.

    Fire Resistance The full Unitex coating system when subjected to the Early Fire Hazard Tests – Australian Standard AS1530.3:1999 meets the strictest standards.

    Water Resistance
    The coating, even at exceptionally high build, is formulated with a water vapour permeability factor to allow water vapour from the substrate to leave unhindered and to rainproof the exterior. Rising damp and elevated levels of moisture in the substrate will damage, and possibly delaminate, the surface coating. Please ensure that damp coursing the substrate is in place and prior test moisture content with a moisture meter (maximum 12% WME is allowed) (Builder responsibility).

    Colour
    The pigmentation is completely integrated during the manufacturing process, which means colour through the entire film thickness. Applied Finishes are available in a practically unlimited range of full colour to pastel shades. Please contact Unitex for the full range of colours available.
    Note: Some deep tones cannot be supplied in applied finishes. Contact Unitex for your specific solution. All colours will fade to some degree with time in exterior systems. Do not apply pigmented texture coats over fresh and or not fully cured renders as efflorescent damage (white blotching) may occur. Each pail has a label with the unique code identifying the particular texture type, colour and batch number. This coding ensures that if you require additional product (say to finish off a job), Unitex can match the texture and colour to the original. Note: Conditions on site may change and therefore colour outcome may be different when applied under varying weather conditions.  It is advisable always order 1 or 2 more pails than are required for the job. The pails have a strong sealed lid to prevent spillage if they should tip over before opening. Even after opening the lid still fits tightly enough when re-sealing to prevent contamination of the remaining product. The product must be protected from heat and cold during transit and storage.

    Application Details
    A minimum of 72 hours, under ideal temperate conditions, is required for through-dry (and cure) of the render, when the surface is trough dry the Unitex Textured Finish coat may be applied. Dry is measured to be less than 12% WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) where measured on a Protimeter® Moisture Meter. The substrate must be clean before applying the Finish coat. Any crumbling, loose or damaged substrate render must be removed and the surface patched and made good prior to coating. All surfaces must be free of grease, oils, dirt and dust. Pre-painted surfaces must have flaking paint wire brushed back to a sound substrate. Unitex recommends a base coat of a pigmented Unitex Uni-Substrate Sealer (2 coats) over old renders prior to application of the surface finishes. If multi coats are desired then a minimum of 72 hours between each coat is required. All Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are designed to overcoat Unitex Render from our specialty render range. See Unitex Renders sections for information on suitable base render to use. Application should not be carried out under excessively cold conditions (below 7 °C) or in hot windy conditions (above 32°C).

    Site
    Unitex strongly advises sign off on all coating systems. Always provide the Builder and Designer with a site texture sample of minimum 2m², finish and colour for written approval nominated the Unitex specified system.
