The term ‘parge coat’ refers to the application of a thin coat of a cementitious or polymeric mortar to concrete or masonry walls. A parge coat can reduce air leakage through cracks, joints and porous wall constructions and so reduce energy consumption and improve comfort and acoustic performance. It can also be used to prepare a surface for a topcoat.
