About Acrylic Rendering

Just as the terminology signifies, acrylic rendering is done with the use of acrylic. This is a special type of plastic that is available in a mixture.

  • It can be trowelled, rolled or even sprayed on the surface

  • You can use several different colors

Cement Versus Acrylic 

There is a usual debate between acrylic rendering and cement render though more and more people are inclined towards acrylic rendering. However, there is some signature difference between the two in its features and functionality. The most significant difference is in the price of the two where acrylic rendering is a bit on the higher side for several reasons as under:

  • Cement render uses only sand, lime and cement but acrylic render only comes in pre-mixed buckets
  • Acrylic render is mostly a topcoat thereby requiring an additional base coat on which it can be applied
  • A modified cement render leveling compound is therefore required as a base coat to make the brick and block work smooth and uniform
  • A flexible and water resistant acrylic membrane coating must be applied to seal the render which will reduce the chances of cracking and increasing the longevity

The Technique Followed

The technique followed by the professional for acrylic rendering requires expertise and it should be even from all angles. The coating of the acrylic membrane can be applied by a brush, texture roller, nap roller or a spray gun. Usually, the professional chooses the technique and tools for acrylic rendering considering the finish of the cement render or the base coat and the type of finish that you want. If you want a smooth and textured finish, then the professional will use a trowel and then sponge it over with little bit of water for the required smooth finish. Bagging technique is applied when you want a very rough finish in which only a single coat is applied using very coarse graded sand.

The process of choosing an incontinence product

When you are about to shop for incontinence pads, you will be humbled with the choices in front of you. However, there are several points to keep in mind when you are choosing such product.

  • Size- Any undergarment which is too small or large in size will not be that effective in preventing urine leaks. For this reason, you would need to measure your hips, waist, and then match it to the product of the company. The onus of choice of a brand is dependent on you.
  • Absorbency – The choice of an undergarment is dependent on the pattern of incontinence. It all boils down to the leakage of urine.
  • Cost – These products are on the expensive side, but this should not be the only criteria in the choice of a product. When you opt for a cheap diaper, the performance level will be low and quality is on the cheaper side. Therefore, you would need to change on a constant basis. Do keep in mind that you would need to choose a product with perfect absorption, so that leakage is the last thing on your mind. If cost is on your mind, then opt for washable products or you can purchase in bulk. When you opt for an online purchase not only discrete delivery is assured, but also many companies tend to provide discounts on bulk deals.

The pull-up incontinence pads can work out to be a better choice. However, you would need to be aware that during nights, do not use them when an individual tends to move in bed. It reduces the chances of accident to a negligible level.
