Masonry

Masonary is the name given to substrate. It will consist of concrete, brick, concrete block, stone, or a combination of these materials.

Mesh

Mesh is an interleaved fiberglass blanket that provides a base or key for finishing materials such as render and plaster. It is often used to form smooth curved surfaces and for providing a level surface to uneven block, brick or stonework.

Metal lath

Metal lath is a sheets of mesh or thin lattice work made from metal. It is used as a keying surface for walls and ceilings where render or plaster is to be applied. Care should be taken when choosing metal lath over fibreglass lath as it can corrode and has the protential to degrade the surface applied on top of it over time.

Monocouche

Monocouche is a French brand of prepared and chemically constructed renders. Monocouch has also become a term in some areas to describe a pre-prepared render that is not sand and cement. Monocouche renders are ideally paired with Renderplas PVCu beads as our colour combinations and thermal performance compliment them perfectly. 

Movement Joint

A movement joint is a bead designed to bridge two surfaces at a gap or joint that expands and contracts in line with the expansion and contraction of a construction preventing such movement from cracking any finish applied to the surfaces.
