Ideal for creating that natural, earthy charm, where a building has an aged look from a past era.
Monocote is of interest to architects and interior designers where a particular themed architectural style is required. Furthermore, the appeal to builders is that this superior quality, coloured mineral based plaster is applied in a single coat.
The textured appearance is created by the applicator removing the top layer using a scratch trowel once the material has partly set, which exposes the natural aggregate. As the product is a full-bodied pigmented coating it does not require a top coat.
• A plastering and finishing system in one operation.
• Extremely stable against UV light.
• Good mechanical strength.
• Vapour permeable.
