an easy to use, breathable, decorative, silicate-based, textured top coat render.
a finish for use over Baumit base coat and bonding coat renders.
ideal as a finish in areas where high weather and stain resistance is required.
for providing a white or coloured facade.
Where is it used?
Baumit NanoporTop can be used as a finish coat render on all main wall areas.
It can be applied on to old and new mineral renders (lime and cement renders), organic base coat renders in the Baumit range and on to EWI systems.
How is it used?
Baumit NanoporTop should be gently whisked in it’s tub prior to use to ensure a homogeneous consistency. Up to 1% water can be added to improve workability.
Surfaces should be clean, dry, free from dust and suitably cured. All surfaces should be primed with Baumit DG27 primer prior to application.
The Baumit NanoporTop is applied with a stainless steel trowel and troweled back to the grit thickness.
The surface is then finished with a PVC float using small circular motions.
For the best finish apply and finish each panel continuously, without breaks.
It is best to use the same person to finish the whole of each panel to avoid differences in texture mid way.
How much will you need?
The final thickness of the Baumit NanoporTop is dependent on the grain size but as a general rule it will be around 0.5mm thicker than the grain size. For example the 1.5mm will be around 2mm thick and so on.
Typically the 1.5mm will use up to 2.75kg/m2, the 2mm will use up to 3.5kg/m2 and the 3mm will use up to 4.6kg/m2. Rates improve with familiarity.
Baumit NanoporTop should only be used when temperatures are above 8 degrees Celsius and away from strong, drying winds and direct sunlight. Because the material has to dry out to harden and cure, if the atmospheric humidity is very high and temperature is low drying times will longer.
This product can be bought by the 25kg tub or by the pallet of 24 tubs. Typically the 1.5mm will use up to 2.75kg/m2, the 2mm will use up to 3.5kg/m2 and the 3mm will use up to 4.6kg/m2. Rates improve with familiarity.
