Lime basecoat render for wood fibre insulation - UdiFOUNDATION COAT

      • UdiFOUNDATION COAT render is:-

        • a robust external base coat plaster for all Udi wood fibre insulation systems.
        • an excellent lime based bonding coat plaster.
        • a reinforcing coat with fibreglass mesh.
        • is fine enough to be used as an internal finish, for a slightly grainy, natural white finish.



        Where is it used?

        • It can be used on all wood fibre and wood wool substrates and is used in conjunction with UdiREINFORCEMENT mesh to provide a robust reinforced plaster layer.
        • It can also be used on concrete, masonry, render carrier boards, lime and lime/cement plasters so long as they are sound and able to take another plaster layer.

        How is it used?

        • UdiFOUNDATION COAT render is best mixed with clean tap water, using a plaster whisk, to achieve a smooth lump free consistency.
        • It's 'sticky' nature means it is very easy to apply to a whole range of backgrounds.
        • Surfaces should be clean and dry with air and surface temperatures above 8 deg C.
        • It should be applied with a clean steel trowel and the whole surface 'combed' with a 20mm round knotched trowel whilst it is still wet, aiming for a minimum 5mm layer.
        • UdiREINFORCEMENT mesh should then be trowelled in to the surface (overlapping each piece by 100mm) and covered by the UdiFOUNDATION COAT render so that it is no longer visible.
        • Allow a drying period of 1mm per day before applying subsequent finishes and use scaffolding nets and occasional moistening to prevent drying too quickly.



      How much do I need?

      • Each bag of UdiFOUNDATION COAT render will cover up to 3.5 - 4m2 at 5mm. It should only be used when temperatures are above 8 degrees Celsius and away from strong, drying winds and direct sunlight. This product will cure at a rate of 1mm per day in optimum conditions.
      • This product can be bought by the 25kg bag or by the pallet of 42 bags (10% discount on full pallet).
    Each bag will cover up to 3.8m2 at 5mm thickness. Each pallet contains 42 bags, up to 160m2.
