Product Features

About this Product

flexirend highbuild is a decorative and protective resin based surface coating for application to exterior and interior surfaces. It is a high quality, weather resistant finish, which may be textured to a variety of designs. It is available in a range of colours and provides a superior quality appearance to cement rendering, concrete and many other backing materials.

Features and Benefits

  • Factory controlled to give a consistently high quality product
  • Highly durable
  • Remains slightly flexible after curing and will accommodate a degree of building movement
  • Resists the penetration of external water but allows the substrate to breathe
  • Excellent weather resistance
  • Includes a biocide to inhibit organic growth

Colours & Finishes

flexirend highbuild is available in a range of 6 colours. Specifiers should whenever possible, obtain samples prior to specification.

Technical Services

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

Preparation

All surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and free from any material which may impair adhesion.

Scaffolding must be independently tied to allow uninterrupted application. Any faults in the structure, particularly those which may lead to moisture penetration must be rectified.

To avoid dampness and discolouration, external finishes should be avoided below DPC or within 150 mm of ground level. Building board substrates should have the joints reinforced and caulked with a suitable caulking system prior to priming.

Slightly friable or high suction surfaces or those that offer a mixed suction should be treated with a suitable stabilising primer 24 hours before application of the finish.

Small cracks may be filled with flexirend highbuild prior to the application of the full coat.

All substrates must be of good alignment and blemish free. Faults in the background may be evident in the finished work.

Mask around the areas where material is to be applied. Masking tape must be removed before the material has dried.

Expansion joints should be included as required by the substrate and carried through all applied materials.

Mixing

flexirend highbuild is supplied ready-mixed.

Stir thoroughly before applying. For spray applications up to 5% of clean water may be incorporated during mixing.

To ensure colour uniformity, the materials required for complete and adjoining panels should be of the same batch number or be thoroughly mixed together before use.

Application

flexirend highbuild is usually applied by hawk and trowel or spray. However, decorators may wish to apply the material using a long pile roller or caulking knife. Whatever method is chosen, an even coat must be applied and a flowing edge must be maintained.

Hawk and trowel
Apply a tight coat of flexirend highbuild to a thickness of approximately 1 - 2 mm. Immediately after application, finish the material with the appropriate tool to achieve the desired texture, e.g. texturing roller, sponge or spatula, etc.

Roller
Apply flexirend highbuild at the rate of approximately 2.5 kg/m2, using a long pile roller. The head must be kept fully loaded to allow for an even application without spreading the finish too thinly. Immediately after application, finish the material with the appropriate tool to achieve the desired texture.

Spray
When spraying, flexirend highbuild is applied in a single operation, with an open hopper type power spray to a thickness of approximately 1 - 2 mm. Alternatively, a flat, tight coat may be applied with a hawk and trowel followed by a light spray texture. Other machinery may be used for spraying. Contact our Technical Services Department for further details.

Curing/drying
flexirend highbuild will normally be surface dry within several hours and through dry within 24 - 72 hours. Good ventilation is required during this period. Damp conditions will hinder and extend drying times.

Protection
Protect from unfavourable weather conditions during application and curing.

Good practice
Do not apply:

  • If frost is forecast within 24 hours of use
  • In damp/wet conditions
  • In temperatures below 5°C or above 30°C
  • On elevations in direct sunlight or where the substrate is hot

Cleaning

All equipment must be washed with clean water (preferably hot) immediately after use. Do not empty waste material into drainage systems.

Packaging, Health & Safety

Packaging

flexirend highbuild is supplied in 15 kg pails.

Coverage / Yield

For each mm of thickness, you will require approximately 1.7 kg/m2.

When to a thickness of 1 - 2 mm, coverage is approximately 6.0 m2 per 15 kg pail.

Note: These estimates take no account of wastage and may vary according to the type of surface involved.

Storage and Shelf Life

When stored airtight in a dry place at temperatures above 5°C and protected from frost, shelf life is 12 months from date of manufacture.

Do not over-stack.

Health and Safety

Essentially not hazardous.
Not harmful during normal use.
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Keep out of the reach of children.
