How to Apply

Application Guide DULUX AcraTex 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 AcraBond to 2 parts water followed by a thin bed 4mm coat premixed render. (Alternatively apply a 'Dash or splash Coat' over the 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 Acrabond to 4 parts clean water prior to the application of cement render. DASH or SPLASH COAT - Mix 1 part AcraBond to 4 parts clean water, into this solution add 1 part fresh cement and 2 parts premixed render. .

Specifications

DULUX AcraTex 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.
