Bostik has announced the launch of its new Brick Effect Render product – a two stage render system designed to give a realistic brick and mortar appearance for blockwork, concrete, cement board and a range of other surfaces.
The system is applied in two easy steps, starting with a grey mortar undercoat. Once this is touch dry it is followed by a coloured face coat which is cut through with a specialised tool included in the pack to expose the grey mortar underneath, creating a brick and mortar joint effect.
Both coats are polymer modified render, offering excellent adhesion and weather resistance whilst remaining vapour permeable. The face coat is available in two colours – Brick Red and Buff.
Andrew Hamman, category manager for Bostik, commented:
“With the summer months approaching, merchants are likely to see an increase in demand for external renovation and refurb products. Our new Brick Effect Render system provides a simple, effective way to revive the appearance of walls that may need to be updated – such as garden walls or prefabricated buildings.”
