About K Rend

K Rend is the UK’s largest independent silicone coloured render manufacture. Trading in the UK and Ireland render market for over 25 years, K Rend offers an extensive range of silicone external render and finishes, designed to give a durable weatherproof coating and natural finish.


Through an uncompromising commitment to quality, excellence, integrity and teamwork, K Rend provide the best tailored products and solutions to satisfy the most demanding requirements. Market leading K Rend is one of the first render manufacturers to have achieved prestigious Kitemark licence to BS EN 998:2010. The Kitemark is the world’s premier symbol of trust, integrity and quality ensuring that vital product safety and performance requirements are met. Kitemark schemes are voluntary, illustrating commitment to providing customers with the highest standard of quality products.


K Rend silicone renders range form an attractive range of one coat application systems which can be plastered directly onto blockwork. The range incorporates water repellents as an integral part of the cement based render system. Silicone technology imparts a high degree of water repellency to the render surface whilst allowing water vapour to pass through the render allowing the substrate to breathe. The water repellent surface ensures a freshly rendered appearance for a prolonged period. The finish is drier and thus more resistant to algae growth and the natural phenomenon of limebloom.


K Rend – incorporates various textured through coloured silicone render systems. Also included in the range are dry dash receivers, roughcast, base coats and brick effect render.

K Lime – a range of dry bagged mortars from natural hydraulic lime selected sand and other performance enhancing additives, derived from natural sources.

K Mix – a range of dry bagged construction mortars for use on block and brick laying, scratch coats, bedding and grout for pavia.

K Post – a rapid setting concrete for securing metal, wood and concrete posts. Sets in 5-10 minutes, no mixing required.

K Bead - a range of durable uPVC beads designed to be used with K Rend Renders. They are ideal for damp, wet or corrosive environments or where plaster drying times may be extended.

  • K Mix

Don't let the weather slow you down. Try K Rend Accelerator.

The evenings may be drawing in as winter is upon us but don’t let the weather stop you in your tracks. K Rend have developed K Rend Accelerator, a liquid additive used to reduce the waiting time before scraping K Rend scraped texture renders.
