Beat the winter building blues with ST Mineral K Render from Alumasc Facades

We can rely on the constant unpredictability of the British weather, yet every winter seems to descend on the construction industry with an element of surprise. Year after year, as untimely conditions put pressure on build projects, we continue to endure missed deadlines and increased costs. But this has been addressed by Alumasc Facades, who have manufactured the perfect solution, allowing work to continue during low temperature conditions.




Alumasc’s ST Mineral K Render offers far quicker setting times than silicone render during winter months, giving installers greater flexibility to apply the product in extended periods of bad weather.

It is touch dry in just a few hours.

Suitable for use across all Alumasc External Wall Insulation Systems and also for direct application onto solid walls, ST Mineral K Render is lightweight, yet highly impact and weather resistant, whilst also remaining vapour permeable.

The product can be left with its original white finish without the need to paint, or alternatively can be overpainted with Alumasc’s Silicone Facades Paint which opens up a contemporary, wide-ranging colour palette.
