What is Acrylic Render? - Render Cleaning

If you’ve been thinking about rendering your property or researching different ways to improve the appearance of your exterior, then you might have heard of the term ‘Acrylic Render.’

Acrylic render is a render type that uses acrylic (a type of plastic) in the mix, making it stronger and more flexible than traditional renders. This means that it’s suitable for application on a variety of different materials.

In this blog, we will dive into the pros and cons, alternative render types and the best way to maintain it with advice from our expert team.

Advantages Of Acrylic Rendering

Let’s discover if acrylic render is right for you and your property…there are a number of pros to acrylic rendering.

Flexibility 

This render type can be used on a range of different surfaces including painted walls, brick, concrete and more. This is a big talking point for acrylic render, as traditional render simply can’t stick to all of these surfaces.

Strength

Acrylic render is resistant to cracks which means that you won’t have to worry about unsightly damage and hairline cracks throughout your render. This is possibly the biggest advantage of using acrylic rendering on your exterior.

Range of finishes

This render type has a vast variety of different finishes, whether you like a smooth look or a textured one, there is a wide range of colours and finishes that you can choose from.

Easy to apply

This render is fast drying and only takes a few days to cure.

Disadvantages Of Acrylic Rendering

However, acrylic render isn’t always the best option for every building, there are some downsides.

Expensive

Acrylic render isn’t the most budget-friendly option, however, its durability does make up for this, as it won’t need to be re-applied as often as other render types.

Poor breathability 

Acrylic render is strong and has a tight seal in the application, this means it keeps moisture in and as a result of this is less breathable than some other alternatives (such as silicon render.)

Alternatives to Acrylic Render

There are three different modern render types: Silicone, cement and of course, acrylic.

Silicone render is best recognised as being breathable, whereas cement and acrylic render completely seal off the wall from moisture.

Cement render is your cheapest render option out of the three.

Acrylic render, as mentioned earlier, is renowned for its strength and durability.
