What is Monocouche Rendering?

Monocouche renders, which are also known as through coloured renders, are types of decorative finishes that are applied to the exterior of buildings. They provide weather protection to the building whilst giving your property an attractive decorative finish.

Through coloured renders and monocouche renders have been termed as modern renders. They have been developed to be applied in one coat to form and cure as one layer on the wall of a building. In contrast, traditional renders are usually applied in two coats or more where the first is a scratch coat followed by a finishing coat.

Through coloured renders are widely used in the modern building industry due to their incredibly long life expectancies and ease of application. They are a common sight on today’s high rise office blocks and modern property developments.


Monocouche Rendering Formulation

Through coloured renders are formulated using white ordinary portland cement as a binder. This enables the render to be pigmented and when the render is applied and finished, the pigment binds in place all the way through the body of the render, hence the name through coloured render. Manufacturers of these renders produce a wide range of colours to suit customers’ tastes and requirements.

Traditional renders, on the other hand, are formulated from grey ordinary portland cement and cannot be pigmented. In order to create an attractive finish with a traditional render, a paint or wall coating product would have to be applied.
