Monocouche renders, also knows as scratch renders, are through coloured thick coat render systems, that have a pitted, sandy finish. This type of render system is commonly found on new build properties, but can also be used to improve aestetics of older properties. Like a silicone render system, it still has the incorporated mesh embedded within the first layer. There is then a thick top coat put on which once cured is sanded back to achieve the required finish. Very good in weather resistance and breathability, while incorporating the colour as well.
