What is the difference between SureRend and Enewall?
Enewall has two types of render which can be differentiated by their composition, SureRend is based on a traditional mix and all other products are polymer enhanced. Enewall SureRend is normally used on new build projects.
Whilst the Enewall polymer enhanced range is also used on new build, over coating existing substrates and external wall insulation systems. For further information or help please see Enewall’s technical services department.

Lime Bloom & Efflorescence
BS 5262 Code of practice for the design, preparation and application of external rendering Part 1 clauses 34.1 and 47 confirm that lime bloom is a phenomenon that sometimes affects cementitious products.
Most substrate types contain water soluble salts and with the water used in construction these salts will pass into solution and subsequently reappear at, or near the surface as the building dries out.
Can I re-render a painted surface?
Render a Painted Surface
Enewall would not recommend applying render directly on to a painted surface, the paint would need to be removed or a suitable base coat with fibre glass mesh or stainless steel lath with mechanical fixings would need to be used.
For further information or help please see Enewall’s technical services department.
Should I remove existing render prior to the application of a new render system?
If the existing render is sound and there are no bossed areas it may be detrimental to the existing substrate if the render is forcibly removed.
Enewall would advise against forcibly removing render. For further information or help please see Enewall’s technical services department.
Minimum, Maximum application temperature and Environmental conditions
- Rendering should not take place if the temperature is 30 degrees and rising, where curing is impossible and fast drying will occur.
- Rain or high humidity or where rain will occur before the initial set of the material occurs.
- In cold weather, rendering should not take place if any of the materials are frozen, if the substrate is frozen.
- If the temperature is 5 degrees and falling.
- If there is any risk of frost damage within 24 hours of application.
- In full sun, where wetting down will not cope with the suction causing a high risk of dehydration
