EWI-63331 Bellcast Bead has two purposes. Firstly, it is designed to provide a clean, natural stop to the render just above the damp proof course. The second purpose of the bellcast bead is to drive water away from the wall.
Our Bellcast bead is 2 metres in length and comes in two different thicknesses 6mm and 11mm depending on whether it is being used as part of a thin coat render system (6mm Bellcast Bead) or a scratch / monocouche system (11mm).
Bellcast bead is a type of beading used within render systems – it has two purposes, the first is to create a clean, reinforced line where render finishes. The second purpose is that the bellcast bead helps direct water away where the render finishes at the bottom of the wall. The lip on the bellcast bead ensures that water is directed away from the wall helping to lessen the risk of water penetration.
This bellcast bead is 2m in length and gets embedded within the basecoat layer. The basecoat layer is made up of one of our adhesives (EWI-220 or EWI-225) with an embedded fibreglass mesh. The bellcast bead will be positioned first and help in place with a little adhesive. The basecoat layer will then run down the face of the bead and the top coat is then applied.
