Pre-mixed, vapour-permeable ready to apply acrylic/ silicone-based decorative coating for external and internal walls. Finished appearance is based upon grain size. Pack size: 29.5 kg bucket. DPR (Dirt Pick-up Resistance) technology. The surface of the coating hardens and does not soften again under heat. The non-tacky surface provides high resistance to the accumulation of dirt, mould and pollutants.


  • Excellent hiding power and flexibility characteristics.
  • DPR finishes are water-vapour permeable. They do not create a vapour retarder.
  • Product also known as Revlane+ Taloche Fin (Sand Fine) and Revlane+ Taloche Gros (Sand Coarse).

Suitable for:

  • In-situ and pre-formed concrete. If required level the surface first with Parex base coat Maite.
  • Base coats in accordance with BS 13914-1.
  • Parex coloured one-coat renders, e.g. Monorex GF.
  • ParexDirect or ParexTherm range of Thermal Insulation Systems.
  • Advanced Masonry simulation.
  • Parexlanko grey one-coat renders e.g. Parmurex/ Parex waterproofing undercoat systems.
  • Existing flat substrates.
  • Internal walls, drylining plaster (gypsum) substrates. Prepare and apply 310 Primer.
  • Painted substrates: The existing paint must demonstrate adequate adhesion or be removed. Prime the surface with 310 Primer.
  • Parex profiles.

Unsuitable for:

Lime based substrates.


  • Sand Fine and Sand Coarse can create a range of textures and finishes in addition to horizontal dragged or vertical dragged appearances.
  • Sand Smooth is best applied using a spraying technique to achieve a uniform smoothness.
  • The range of differing finishes is commonly used with the Advanced Masonry Simulation system.
  • For additional information on the range of finishes consult the Parex literature referenced DPR Textured Finishes.


  • BS EN 13914-1 Code of practice for external rendering.
  • BS 8000 Workmanship on building sites.
  • BS EN ISO 14001:2004.
