Mineraltex is an ideal render for large developments, as large areas can be covered quickly. The substrate must initially be prepared in accordance with the technical specification for the project. This includes the use of a ProRend basecoat applied to the thickness directed for the particular substrate, and may include the use of ProMesh render reinforcing at an appropriate grade for the materials being used. The basecoat is flat finished as appropriate.
ProRend Mineraltex render is applied using a hawk and trowel tight to the thickness of the grain: 2mm. It is important to pull the material out as much as possible to achieve the correct coverage. Always maintain a wet edge between scaffold lifts.
Finish ProRend Mineraltex render with a sponge finishing float, typically within 10 – 20 minutes of application, by agitating the grain to achieve the desired texture.
Contact our Technical team on 01647 24620 for a detailed specification of application for your project.Note the “Simple application” guidelines provided here may not be appropriate for every substrate. SAS (Europe) Ltd take no responsibility for application based upon guidelines provided within this site especially when a specification has not been provided.
ProRend Mineraltex can be used to form such details as ashlar which can be used to create a block effect.
Initially the ProRend basecoat is applied to the substrate as per SAS specification. The basecoat is left until the surface hardens.
Battens are fixed to the façade in line with the location of the cuts. The ashlar cut is then made using the ashlar detail tool and an appropriate
shaped cutter – V shaped and square cutters are the most common.
The basecoat is left to dry as directed prior to the application of the ProRend Mineraltex coat using hawk and trowel. This is based upon the same method included in the Simple Application guide above.
This method of Ashlar detailing can also be used with the ProRend Colour and ProRend Colourtex products.
ProRend Mineraltex render is available in four of the most popular colours to complement residential design. Alternatively ProRend Mineraltex can be painted with ProRend Water-Repellent Masonry Paint or ProRend Self-Clean Masonry Paint. The ProRend range of masonry paints can be tinted to 65,000+ colours including RAL, NCS or BS colours.

Thin coat mineral render provides an attractive finish to a variety of facades and substrates, it is low maintenance, waterproof, lightweight, and breathable. It has colour incorporated into it or can be painted after application. The use of thin coat render has spread across Europe and is popular in the UK and across the continent.
- Mineraltex render is ideal for extreme weather conditions, coastal or woodland, as the thin coat makes it very flexible and unlikely to crack
- It is easy to clean with just a pressure washer
- It can be applied to a variety of substrates
