Building Code Compliance
If the project has a building consent then the following clauses apply.
B1 – Structure
This specification complies with the requirements as set out in B1 – Structure which requires buildings, building elements and sitework to withstand the combination of loads and physical conditions they are likely to experience during construction, alteration and throughout their lives. Loads and physical conditions include self-weight, temperature, water, earthquakes, snow, wind, fire.
B2 – Durability
This specification complies with the requirements as set out in B2 – Durability which must always be considered when demonstrating compliance with each of the clauses of the Building Code. It ensures that a building throughout its life will continue to satisfy the performance of the Building Code. It confirms the use of materials that will remain functional throughout the specified intended life of the building, but not less than 50, 15 or 5 years
E2 – External Moisture
This specification complies with the requirements as set out in E2 – External Moisture which demonstrates External roof, wall claddings and external openings will prevent external moisture from causing undue dampness or damage.
F2 – Hazardous building materials
This specification complies with the requirements as set out in F2 – Hazardous building materials which safeguards people from illness and injury from quantities of gas, liquid, radiation and solid particles caused by exposure to building materials
On Going Maintenance Instructions

Submit one 300 mm x 300 mm sample of the selected texture finish and colour for approval on request by the main contractor or specifier. Obtain signature of acceptance on sample and return to the Registered Plasterer.
Provide Resene Construction Systems Maintenance Guide on or before practical completion of the contract for issuing to the building owner. Resene Construction Systems Maintenance Guide to be provided on request.
If the project has a building consent then a producer statement shall be supplied by the plasterer in the form as required by the BCA.
Health and Safety
Refer to the requirements of the Health and Safety in Employment Act 2015 and Worksafe NZ: Guidelines for the provision of facilities and general safety in the construction industry. If the elimination or isolation of potential hazards and risks is not possible then minimise hazards and risks in this work on site by using the proper equipment and techniques as required in the MPNZA Painters hazard handbook. Supply protective clothing and equipment. Inform employees and others on site of the hazards and put into place procedures for dealing with emergencies. Obtain from Resene Construction Systems the Material Safety Data Sheets for each product. Keep sheets on site and comply with the required safety procedures. Confirmation at the start of the project as to whether a Site Specific Safety Plan is to be produced by the Registered Plasterer prior to works starting.
Warrant this system under normal environmental and use conditions against failure. Resene Construction Systems system warranty.

Resene Quick Dry
- Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat provides long-term flexibility over unstable substrates coupled with exceptional durability even when left uncoated for prolonged periods.
- Installed over the plastered joins prior to a full sealer coat/slurry coat
RCS Resin for Slurry Coat
- Multi-purpose Resin supplied in 5kg and 20kg containers
Rockcote MultiStop Grey Slurry Mix
- Polymer-modified cement-based dry plaster mix. Supplied in 15kg bags
Rockcote MultiStop Finishing
- Polymer-modified, cement based dry plaster mix. Supplied in 15kg bags.
Resene Solventborne Aquapel
- Resene Aquapel is a water repellent treatment formulated to help control efflorescence and give a long-term water-beading effect to deter water penetration.
Resene Quick Dry (over plastered joins)
Apply by brush, speed brush, synthetic fibre roller or spray. Spray application is generally not preferred for the first coat.
Apply one to two coats of Resene Quick Dry allowing two to four hours between coats. Lightly sand between coats. For porous surfaces, it may be desirable to thin the first coat with up to 10% clean water.
Resin/MultiStop Slurry Coat
Ensure surface is clean, sound, dry and free from dust, dirt, grease, mould and lichen.
Mix a solution of Acrylbond and Rockcote MultiStop together and apply using a roller .
For pourous substrates mix a 50:50 mix of acrylbond/water and a 1 kg of MultiStop/Adhesive to the mix.
For painted surfaces ensure the acrylbond is mixed directly with 1 kg of MultiStop/Adhesive.
Rockcote MultiStop Finishing Skim/Texture Coat
Resene Solventborne Aquapel
Ensure surface is clean and dry, free from dirt, dust and loose material, oil, grease and mould.
Waterblasting is the best exterior surface preparation method prior to painting.
Stir thoroughly before use. Apply by brush, roller or low pressure spray. Recoat after six hours under
Dependent on surface porosity – typically 2.5 sq. metres per litre for concrete block, 8-11 sq. metres per litre for concrete (tilt, precast and plaster)
Water repellence will reduce over time. To maintain water repellence reapplication will be usually required every three years or when water repellence disappears. Reapplication will be required when water applied to the treated areas does not form beads.
