This European Standard is applicable to factory-made renders and plasters based on organic binders
used for external or internal covering on walls, columns, partitions and ceilings. The products are
manufactured in paste form, ready to use, or in powder form. This European Standard is also applicable
to renders and plasters with inorganic binders such as silicates, silanes, siloxanes and silicones.
Renders and plasters can form the final surface of the structure, textured or not, or they can provide a
levelling of the substrate, adequately smooth for subsequent decorative treatments.
This European Standard contains definitions and final performance requirements. It includes relevant
characteristic categories to designate renders and plasters.
This European Standard provides for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance
(AVCP) of the product to this European Standard. The marking requirement for products covered by
this European Standard is included.
This European Standard is not applicable to coating materials and coating systems according to
EN 1062-1 and EN 13300.
This European Standard does not contain recommendations for the design and application of renders
and plasters. However, this European Standard may be used for definition of renders and plasters in
conjunction with codes of application and national specifications for execution of works.
