About this Product
weber aretes chrono monocouche is a powder additive for Monocouche renders which allows the rapid formation of traditional angles against temporary battens. The additive is also useful for the rapid fixing of standard bead profiles using mixed Monocouche.
Features and Benefits
- Temporary battens can be removed within 1.5 hours when forming traditional angles
- weber aretes chrono monocouche is supplied in 2 kg sachets which is enough to treat 15 - 16 kg of Monocouche
- Powder additive has no effect on the appearance of the finished product
weber aretes chrono monocouche is not suitable for the acceleration of the finished elevation due to the rapid nature of set.
Do not use in conjunction with render pumps.
weber's Customer Services Department has a team of experienced advisors available to provide on-site advice both at the specification stage and during application.

Preparation & Application
The instructions regarding the application of Monocouche renders still apply with respect to substrate preparation and appropriate good practice.
The substrate must not be frozen and material should not be applied if there is a risk of frost within 24 hours.
The minimum application temperature is + 5°C for all Monocouche renders.
Fill a standard bucket with Monocouche powder (approx. 11 litres of powder). Measure out enough water to achieve a wet Monocouche mix (typically 3.5 to 4 litres of water) for weberpral M into an appropriate mixing trough in preparation for mixing the powder.
weber aretes chrono monocouche must be added to the wet mix of Monocouche to ensure the maximum working time is achieved. Do not blend neat weber aretes chrono monocouche with Monocouche powder.
It is recommended that the prepared powder and water components are mixed together mechanically with a drill and whisk to achieve a homogenous wet paste mixture.
Open a 2 kg sachet of weber aretes chrono monocouche and pour entire contents into the Monocouche and mix rapidly to achieve workable consistency. Do not add additional sachets of weber aretes chrono monocouche as working time will be seriously reduced.
Once mixed do not attempt to remix.
Apply product as required.
For the formation of traditional edges ensure that once the temporary formwork is removed (typically 1.5 hours) scrape the exposed edges to ensure a good future bond with the main application of Monocouche.
Do not apply outside the temperature range of +5°C to +35°C.
It is important that the main application of Monocouche follows the preparation of traditional edges in reasonable time to prevent contamination of the exposed faces.
Packaging, Health & Safety
weber aretes chrono monocouche is supplied in a 20 kg plastic bucket containing 10 x 2 kg sachets of powder. A pallet of weber aretes chrono monocouche consists of 9 buckets with a total weight of 180 kg.
Coverage / Yield
1 sachet of weber aretes chrono monocouche is estimated to treat enough Monocouche mix to apply approximately 15 linear metres of traditional edges.
Storage and Shelf Life
When stored airtight in a dry place at temperatures between 5°C and 30°C, shelf life is 9 months from date of manufacture. Protect from frost and heat.
