  • Sand cement renders.
  • Existing mineral render.
  • Concrete
  • Masonry substrates un-decorated. It is available in a range of natural aggregate colors.

Instructions for use

Surface preparation

Mineralite should be applied onto a 10 -12 mm undercoat of Sodamco Weber ready mix plaster e.g. weberpremix SP 1 traditional render conforming to mix designation (cement : lime : sand). Scaffolding must be independently tied to allow for an uninterrupted application. Any faults in the structure, particularly those which may lead to moisture penetration must be rectified. To avoid dampness and discoloration rendering should be avoided below DPC and within 150 mm of ground level. All surfaces must be sound, clean, suitably dry and free of any material which may impair adhesion.Undercoats must be well adhered to the substrate, of good alignment, thoroughly horizontally keyed and fully cured before weber.mineralite is applied. All faults to be rectified before weber mineralite is applied. Mask and protect as required. Edging tape must be removed before the material has dried. Expansion joints should be included to coincide with joints in the substrate and carried through all render coats. To aid good quality application panel size should be controlled: a maximum of 6m² is recommended as a workable size. Feature stop details, angles and joints in weber mineralite should be formed using clean and straight hardwood battens of 5mm thickness with chamfered edges. Alternatively suitable PVCU beads may be used.

Product preparation

Mineralite should be mechanically mixed with clean water at the rate of 4-5 liters per 25kg bag using a tumble mixer or suitable drill with whisk attachment. 

Do not mix manually. Maintain a constant water: powder ratio throughout the application. To ensure color uniformity of adjoining panels, Mineralite should have the same batch number. Mineralite from different batch numbers should be thoroughly mixed together before use

Product application

Mineralite is applied by stainless steel trowel and leveled to a thickness of 5mm. Using a plastic float and SS trowel ensure the surface is closed. When firm to the touch, the aggregate is exposed with a wool roller and clean water. Consolidate with a damp felt pad. After 24—48 hours maximum clean the surface with a dilution of 1 part hydrochloric acid to 3 parts clean water.

Curing

3 - 5 days after application.

Clean up

All equipment must be washed with clean water immediately after use. Waste material should not be emptied into drainage systems.
