AX1 – Pliolite Thin Coat Render
AX1 Pliolite Thin Coat Render is a premium quality, long life, trowel applied, ready to use, through-coloured, thin-coat render which is formulated based on Pliolite Resin technology. AX1 has excellent adhesion and breathability properties, and Pliolite technology has been proven to work effectively on properties for over 45 years. This product will not only fully waterproof your property and create a beautiful finish, but will also allow the building to breathe naturally due to its high vapour transmission rate. This in combination with the high adhesion benefits of Pliolite resins ensures that your property will be protected with the best quality wall coating technology available on the market.

All surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and free of any material which may impair adhesion. Do not apply to shiny surfaces. Scaffolding must be independently tied to allow for uninterrupted application. Any faults in the structure – particularly those which may lead to moisture penetration – must be rectified. Substrate should be prepared with primer. Mask around the areas where material is to be applied. Always apply a test panel for client, specifier, main contractor or other interested party to approve before starting the main body of the work.
Use Wethertex PP1 Primer prior to AX1 over GRC, X71 or a suitable basecoat.
AX1 Pliolite Thin Coat Render is supplied ready to use but always ensure that the material has been mixed using a drill with suitable whisk prior to application.
DO NOT apply to a wet substrate under any circumstances.
To maintain colour consistency, panels should be completed in sequence around the building. To avoid dampness and discolouration rendering should be avoided below DPC or within 150mm of ground level. To apply the material, use a stainless steel trowel or suitable spray equipment depending on the grain size. Use the size of the aggregate to gauge the thickness of the render when applying to the substrate ie. AX1 Pliolite Thin Coat Render 1.5mm = thickness 1.5mm. Once the render is applied, finish with a plastic float working the material in small circular motions, this will create the natural random finish.
When stored unopened in a dry place at temperatures above 5ºC, shelf life is 12 months from the date of manufacture.
All equipment must be washed with clean water immediately after use. Waste material should not be emptied in the drainage systems.
HEALTH & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
For further information, please request the material safety data sheet for this product.
The weather conditions for application and drying are critical. Do not apply if any of the following conditions are likely to arise during, or in the first 24 hours following application.
• If frost is forecast, or in excessive wet conditions
• Relative humidity is above 95%
• In temperatures below -10ºC or above 25ºC
• If the elevation is in direct sunlight
• If the substrate is hot (at or above 30ºC)
Coverage rates are approximate and do not take into account wastage and uneven substrates.
The product must be protected against heavy rain, direct sun or wind in the first 24 hours after application. Sheeting the façade or the scaffold is advised to protect against this. For this particular product if these parameters are not met polymer film damage, wash off, discolouration and potential failure can occur. It is the responsibility of the application contractor to manage and record the weather conditions during application and curing of the product.
