Acrylic Rendering - Types that require painting

What are the different types of acrylic rendering?

Acrylic render is a special render material that has acrylics and plastics included in the mix to give it flexibility and strength. Acrylic render comes in two forms them being one that requires painting (acrylic render) and one does not (coloured acrylic render). Acrylic render requires painting OR it can be used as a base coat BEFORE a coloured acrylic render.

The reasons for using acrylic render over a cement render includes substrates and/or finishes. Not all substrates are suitable for cement render. Newer rendered homes are leaning towards acrylic render as it can be applied easily over many substrates and painted quickly
