Polymer-modified silicone renders are extremely popular on the market today. These renders tend to be more high performing than their traditional sand and cement counterpart, offering greater crack resistance and increased longevity. Not only this, polymer modified silicone renders can be tinted to produce any shade.
With so many varieties of silicone-based renders on the market, it can be pretty confusing about which one to settle on. At EWI Store, our top three renders are those that contain silicone, and each of them offers different things.
Silicone Silicate Render
This is what you may call an ‘entry-level’ silicone render. Silicone Silicate Render is somewhat a hybrid in that it is part silicone and part silicate. This means that it still has the same level of breathability as other silicones, but it is less hydrophobic and therefore less self-cleaning. On the other hand, due to the fact that it’s a ‘hybrid,’ Silicone Silicate is our best value render for price and performance.
- Great value
The classic, widely renowned Silicone Render takes pride of place on our (always well-stocked with quality materials) warehouse shelves. This is undoubtedly our most popular thin coat render, offering enhanced levels of breathability and self-cleaning capabilities that ensure it stands apart from other renders.
Premium Bio Silicone Render
Jumping from one quality render to another, the Premium Bio Silicone Render is the most advanced thin coat render in the EWI Pro catalogue. This is your all-singing, all-dancing version of the classic silicone with its ability to actively tackle organic growth, its enhanced UV resistance and increased impact resistance. This is ideal for if your property is situated in an area of high vegetation and exposure to organic growth.
- Increased resistance to plant growth
- UV resistant
- Impact resistant
How do I choose a coloured render?
