Cement Render Coating

Cement rendering is a popular decorative and protective finish that is widely used across the construction industry. Whether it’s a modern home or an older building in need of a facelift, cement render is the ideal way to improve aesthetic appeal.

Quickwall’s cement render finishes come in 20kg bags and contain a blend of sands and cements, along with various cement additives to improve workability, durability and provide flexibility. Most of our cement render range requires the additional of our advanced wet Polymer additive , that further enhances the quality of the render and ensures that the render will adhere to all substrates.

Developed in the wet tropics, Quickwall’s range of cement based renders are made to withstand Australia’s harshest climates. Whether you’re on the coast, live in high humidity or simply want a render that will go the distance, our products won’t let you down!

Initially designed for use in salt water swimming pools, they are made to withstand the toughest conditions. Our renders have been tried and tested for over 25 years, so we’re confident yours will remain in excellent condition long after its application.


Texture Finishes

There are several finishes to choose from in our cement render range, from the more traditional sponge finish, to vertical and circular scratch coat finishes and our most popular finish Quicksand. Quicksand is a very flat, fine texture finish that has excellent durability, favoured by applicators for its ease of use and excellent hiding capabilities. 

Quickwall top coat finishes are offered in either cement based (mineral) or in 100% acrylic selections, (see Acrylic Renders) and both come with industry guarantees. Our selected range of mineral coatings are now supported by an extended warranty from 10 to 15 years* through our loyal approved applicator network.

Quickwall quality finishes:

  • Will not delaminate, peel or blister like other acrylic coatings.
  • Are guaranteed not to go drummy like sand/cement render often does.
  • Provide superior bond to the substrate that is not affected by moisture or humidity.
  • Provide no nutriments for termites.
  • Exterior two-pack can be applied to dry or wet substrates. No loss of time waiting for walls to dry.
  • Dry quickly and can generally be painted 48 hours after application.
  • Are able to be applied in a wide range of temperatures, from 10°C through to 45°C.

A select list of some of our more popular finishes are described below.


Our polymer modified, dual purpose traditional cement render is perfect for obtaining a traditional sponged finish render, or for preparing most substrates as a base coat.

Traditional render can be used as a thin filament coating (e.g. Skimcoat base coats), or as a higher build screed finish of up to 12mm with excellent holding properties. Traditional render is a versatile finish suitable for multiple applications, such as bagging over core filled besser blocks.


A timeless, smooth, flat render finish similar to a sponge-floated sand and cement render, Quicksand provides excellent coverage, is easy to use and will not go drummy or delaminate like sand and cement render often does. Quicksand is a tough two-pack polymer modified mineral based material that bonds to practically any substrate. Quicksand is also available in a full acrylic option.


This seamless vertical scratch-coat decorative and protective wall finish is available in grades of 1.5mm, 2mm and 3mm. The final finish is by plastic trowel, as this delivers a smooth, flat, joint-free finish. Attractive and long-lasting, Quick Trowel is a popular up-market finish.
We offer this finish in a choice of a tough, durable, permanent two-pack mineral/polymer system or in a full acrylic system.


Sandstone is a seamless and modern – yet ageless – decorative and protective wall coating system. This product can be plastic trowel finished to provide a smooth textured finish in 1.5mm, 2mm and 3mm grades. This cement render mimics the face of a freshly cut block of sandstone.
We offer this finish in a choice of a tough, durable permanent two-pack mineral/polymer system or in a full acrylic system.

Oxide Tinted Cement Renders

Quickwall offers a range of premium UV stable oxides that can be added to our white based, mineral finishes such as Quickwall Plaster Plus White. Plaster Plus can finished to a fine, sponge finish or by varying the trowel and application technique it can achieve an Adobe, Santa Fe natural render look. These renders do not require painting but will need to be sealed with Quickwall Clear Seal to protect them from staining and oxide fading. Oxide coloured renders are a specialised finish that look great when incorporated into the right design. Oxide tinted renders are deliberately designed to look rustic and aged and will produce colour variations depending on the application technique used.

Oxide tinted renders are not recommended as an alternative to painting, they are a specialised finish and should only be selected when this specific look is desired.
