  • This 2 Day Krend Course is ideal for those students with experience in Solid Plastering with experience in Float Work Rendering Or using Various Rules and Edges.
  • During your course you will be applying base coats, stop beads, bellcast beads and corner beads to various backgrounds using the correct method. At goldtrowel you will also apply topcoats and scratch backs using the correct depth scratchers. Only here during this 2 day intensive krend course will you be able to cover decent meterage which will enable you to be fully confident and competent on completion of your course. We will also cover repairs to various substrates.
  • There's absolutely no way should you be completing Krend Courses inside a training facility as it will not be in an uncontrolled environment. At Goldtrowel we are outside completing loads of meterage and not only this you need to know your substrates(backgrounds). That's what we offer with Customer support 24/7.
  • At the end of the course you will be given a K-Rend Certificate and  data handouts of all materials used and its application to all backgrounds.
  • There are Centres in the UK that are offering Krend Courses but they are not Goldtrowel. I have looked at what they offer and catagorically they do not show you a great deal and secondly I believe they haven't got the Professional Knowledge, know how and most importantly Hands On Experience.
  • Feel free to call me anytime you wish and ask any questions, even if you are unsure of what we offer.


Goldtrowel is a Krend Accredited Training Centre and has over 100 meters to use outside in an uncontrolled environment.

  • K Rend Base (Scratch) Coats are polymer modified and cement based to ensure flexibility and strength. Scratch coats require only the addition of water and five minutes mixing time. Normally applied in one coat as a backing for K Rend finishes. Rule off to a flat finish and scratch lightly to provide a key for the next coat.
