Bovis Homes, at its housing development in Ongar, Essex, has used a modern system to provide - in a single operation - a colour finish directly onto 3.5N/mm 2dense concrete blockwork. These fully rendered properties have used Cemrend from Snowcem throughout the development.

It has provided a fast finishing procedure and has avoided winter drying delays associated with water-based finishes. Cemrend is a cementitious render with properties equivalent to mix designation 3 as described in BS 5262.

It is supplied as a blend of dry powders for single coat application by both hand tools and Render Spray machine. This requires only the addition of clean water to provide a durable weather-resistant and low-maintenance render. Painting is not required as the render is coloured throughout its thickness.
