Ever wondered what a monochouche is? Well, Saint-Gobain Weber like to think of themselves as seasoned pros when it comes to monochouche render, so here they will explain all…
Whether you’re a homeowner looking for the best option for your extension, an applicator needing to recommend a durable facade to a client, or a specifier wanting the perfect finish for your next project, you may find yourself asking, what exactly is monocouche?
Well, monochouche render is a fantastic product. It’s long-lasting, low-maintenance, and through-coloured so there’s no need for a top coat or painting. We’ve taken traditional sand and cement render and dialled it up a few notches. With increased weather resistance, algae resistance and the ability to apply with a render pump, we believe it is the ideal finish for your home or project.
But what does the word ‘monocouche’ mean? In French – where monocouche originates – it literally translates into English as ‘one coat’. Our monocouche renders are applied in two passes, but these bond together to form one strong monolithic coat.
On a formulation level, the type of cement used in monocouche renders allows for pigmentation, which is what gives it the colour and means there’s no need to paint it. A monocouche render can either refresh your current facade or offer a vibrant look to a new build, and with various finish options, including scraped and spray/roughcast, and features such as quoin and ashlar, you can get creative with the final look.
