The Eircom exchange building, constructed in the 1970’s, consists of a rendered exterior of architectural interest and features curves and round “porthole” style windows.
The exterior render was suffering with a high degree of cracking. Repairs to the render were carried out using Betofix RM, a fast cure feather edge repair mortar prior to application of the coating system.
Remmers Elastoflex system was chosen to accommodate the anticipated movement and give a high degree of finish to the exterior.
The Elastoflex system incorporates mesh reinforcement within a highly elastic coating compliant with EN1504 – surface protection coatings. The coating has good water vapour diffusion characteristics, is highly water repellent and highly resistant to the diffusion of carbon dioxide.
