Nano Drex Silicone Render: What makes it so special?

20.05.2021

When considering the final façade of a building, be it for a renovation or new build project, Silicone Render is fast becoming the primary choice for installers and architects alike. Silicone Render refers to the final coat of a render-only or external wall insulation system which dramatically improves the external appearance, thermal properties and energy-saving benefits of a building. It is extremely flexible, hydrophobic and durable, positioning itself as a high-technology render solution. As the demand for Silicone Render continues to rise, finding the perfect kind for your project can be overwhelming. For that reason, we are going to tell you the best kind of Silicone Render in this very blog and why.

Silicone Render: A brief history

Silicone Renders were first introduced to the construction market in early 2000 from Eastern Europe, fundamentally differing from sand and cement render and, ultimately, replacing Monocouche render. Unlike sand and cement render which would typically be applied at 20mm thick, and Monocouche which is scraped back to provide a chalkier aesthetic, Silicone Render is a thin-coat, ready-to-use render that comes in various thicknesses to provide the proprietors’ texture of choice. What’s more, Silicone Render can be tinted to absolutely any colour, accommodating to every preference. EWI Pro Silicone Renders are tinted in-house using state-of-the-art mixing facilities and only manufacturer-approved tinting products, enabling us to achieve stand-out finishes for our clients.

That’s why Silicone Render is central to our ethos; it enables us to fulfil our commitments to improving the external appearance, thermal efficiency and environmental performance of buildings throughout the UK. Hence, we are quickly establishing ourselves as the number one render-only and external wall insulation solution in the UK; you only need to look at our advanced range of BBA-approved Silicone Render products to see this for yourself. Nevertheless, if you are seeking only the best kind of Silicone Render, then look no further than Nano Drex Silicone Render.

Nano Drex Silicone Render

Nano Drex Silicone Render is our most advanced thin-coat Silicone Render, offering unmatched performance in terms of flexibility, breathability and hydrophobic properties, meaning it flexes with a building’s natural movements, repels water when encountered with rain and lasts for years to come. Formulated using nano-silicone technology, Nano Drex Silicone Render also actively prevents problems with organic growth on the external walls of your home, ensuring no future issues with dampness or mould. Also, owing to its advanced hydrophobic properties, Nano Drex Silicone Render repels all settling deposits on the surface of the render that could lead to dampness and mould, making it ideal for use in areas that are highly exposed to organic matter.

Nano Drex Silicone Render is extremely easy to apply. It comes ready to use in a 25kg bucket, meaning it can be applied immediately from the bucket; it does not need to be mixed with water. Nonetheless, if your Nano Drex Silicone Render has been tinted, we recommend stirring the render before use to ensure an even distribution of the colour pigmentation. To apply Nano Drex Silicone Render, simply use a trowel for initial application onto the substrate, then a plastic float to create the desired texture.

In summary, Nano Drex Silicone Render is intended for:

  • application onto EWI Pro-specified basecoats;
  • use with EWI Pro Water Based Primer;
  • use with EWI Pro Topcoat Primer; and
  • application, and to be set, in temperatures from +5°C to +25°C.
