Description and Composition
Ezycoat Baseflex is the latest addition to the Polymer Render family. It is essentially a full acrylic render that contains fillers and binders of the highest quality that allow it to be applied as a thick section application which traditionally was not achievable with acrylic systems.
Ezycoat Baseflex has been specifically designed to achieve certain qualities which cannot be attained by dry mix modified cement render such as the Ezycoat EzySkim Render, Ezypump, ECA and Ezycoat Super 6 . (Sometimes known as mineral based renders). Ezycoat Baseflex is a one part product that once agitated is ready for immediate use straight from the pail. It produces a render like finish with excellent adhesion and flexibility and can be applied to thickness of 2 to 6 mm in any 1 application.
Description: As building materials change the need also arises for the coating application and products to follow suit. Traditionally the increased application thickness of renders was reserved to cement renders on brick & cement blocks. However now with the development of Ezycoat Baseflexit is possible to use the same theory on more difficult building panel products such as Fibre cement sheeting and AAC. Ezycoat Baseflex can be built up in thickness to straighten out cladding which would otherwise follow the frame to which it is fixed. Its specially formulated acrylic base provides ease of use and caters for those more difficult situations so as to produce a true and straight surface for the application of the final decorative coating.
Surface Application: Suitable for application to Fibre cement sheeting, pre rendered surfaces, AFS, Ritek , Rendered Polystyrene Cladding, Koolwall Panel, Tilt Concrete & Modakboard* Refer to Technical Data Sheets (TDS). or Ezyspec for application procedures.
Mixing Procedure: Ready to use from the Pail.
Application Method: Ezycoat Baseflex Build is applied by Steel Trowel and then finished with a plastic float.
Packaging: 15 Lit. Plastic Pails.
Coverage: 4 to 10 sqm. per Pail. *Consumption will varying depending on surface to be coated
Ezycoat Baseflex has been designed to produce a highly decorative external synthetic finish which is suitable for application to a variety of surfaces that would not normally accept a traditional render or modified skim render. Ezycoat Baseflex is ideally suited for application over propriety installed Fibre cement sheeted surfaces ( refer to EzyBuild Spec for further advice on surface preparation for texture fibre cement sheets) Its ability to adhere to smooth surfaces and its flexible nature make it suitable for this type of application. It also suitable for use as a finish over existing traditional rendered or Ezycoat EzySkim Render, Ezypump, ECA and Ezycoat Super 6 surfaces.
When applying Ezycoat Baseflex to any surface it is recommended that the surfaces be free of any contaminant which may affect the performance of the coatings and that any visible imperfections in the surface which may be transferred through to the finished surface
Once having provided a uniform substrate ( Refer to EzyBuild Ezyspec for further advise on surface preperations relating to the building product being coated), apply a base coat of Ezycoat Masonry Sealer (see Ezycoat Masonry Sealer Technical Data Sheet for further advice.) maintaining even coverage. Then allow the treated surface to stand for approximately 1 hour, prior to applying Ezycoat Polymer HB. Using a stainless steel plasterer’s trowel, evenly spreading the Ezycoat Polymer HB over the surface. Due to the thick nature of Ezycoat Polymer HB the product thickness can be adjusted on the wall in order to maintain a flat surface. Once spread onto the wall the Ezycoat Polymer HB can then be float finished as required. Depending on weather conditions the Ezycoat Polymer HB may be ready for it finishing coat of the selected Ezycoat Texture Finish after 24 hours of being applied. Due to the thicker nature of application of the Ezycoat Polymer HB, additional drying time may be required in which case the the surface should be tested for hardness and moisture before proceeding to the next application.
After 24 hrs of applying the final coat , two coats of Ezycoat Membrane paint is then applied in accordance with the Ezycoat Membrane specifications to produce an aesthetically pleasing finish to your project
Due to the many different proprietary building systems available on the market, it is highly recommended that you contact our offices and request a copy of the Ezycoat specification for the building system you are using. EZYBUILD SPECS are readily available upon request either from our company representatives or our offices.

|Consumption||1 Coat – 6 to 8 sqm. per 15 Lit. max. thickness 4mm|
|Important Notes||Do not apply in temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius or 24 hrs prior to or after wet & rainy conditions. Do not apply in moist conditions. All walls must be free of moisture prior to application. All surfaces should be cleaned and free of any contaminant, releasing agent, fungal growth which may affect the performance of these coatings. Any imperfections which may become visible in the finished surface should be patched and leveled with Ezycoat Patching compounds. Any structural imperfections and/or cracks will need to stabilised prior to any further applications. The durability of the product in its original confection is guaranteed for 1 year as long as it is not exposed to direct sunlight or temperatures below 6 degrees. Ezycoat Polymer HB is not suitable for use in areas prone to water logging ,submersion, continually damp and/or below ground. Walls were Ezycoat Polymer HB is to be applied must be free draining. In the case of retaining walls the rear of the wall must be engineered to prevent any penetration of moisture or water through the wall in to the rear of the Ezycoat Polymer HB. Failure to do so will result in damage to the Ezycoat Polymer HB and is not covered by warranty. Excess Waste product should be disposed of in responsible manner following guidelines as set out by the local council’s bi-laws and Waste Disposal Procedures.|
