Bostik introduces Brick Effect Render

Published:  14 July, 2014

Bostik has launched 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 while remaining vapour permeable. The face coat is available in two colours: Brick Red and Buff.
