Code: 194-51619

DULUX AcraTex 500/4 AcraBond is a 100% pure acrylic add-mixture & bonding agent for use in RenderWall and general purpose renders and concrete mixtures to improve strength and adhesive properties of cementitious compounds


  • Easy to use
  • Excellent bonding properties
  • Controls curing time of Cement based products


  • Aids in the workability of the mixture and reduces shrinkage.
  • It is ideal to seal friable areas before cement rendering
  • It reduces water loss and enhances the curing of cement containing mixtures.

Use and typical specification

DULUX AcraTex 500/4 AcraBond is used as an ACRYLIC MODIFIER additive for Dulux AcraTex Renderwall, increasing tensile strength, flexibility and impact resistance of the mixture to which it is incorporated. AcraBond is recommended for addition to Renderwall relative to the type of surface to be rendered and the Renderwall thickness to be applied - thin build application of Renderwall requires higher addition AcraBond addition rates. Refer to RenderWall Application guide for specific AcraBond addition rates relative to the specific Renderwall grade

Typical properties and application data

Application Guide DULUX AcraTex 500/4 Acrabond is mixed with water and premixed bags of premixed cement render depending on the surface suction and render film build. Typical Uses OFF FORM CONCRETE - bonding agent (low absorption surfaces). Apply a mixture of 1 part 500/4 AcraBond to 2 parts water followed by a thin bed 4mm coat premixed render. (Alternatively apply a 'Dash or splash Coat' over the 500/4 Acrabond primed Off Form concrete for a 5mm + coat(s) of premixed render. HIGH ABSORBENCY SURFACES - (to control excessive suction). Apply a mixture of 1 part 500/4 Acrabond to 4 parts clean water prior to the application of cement render. DASH or SPLASH COAT - Mix 1 part 500/4 AcraBond to 4 parts clean water, into this solution add 1 part fresh cement and 2 parts premixed render. .
