Cement render with membrane paint vs acrylic render

In both options, the cement render and high build render is typically a cement & sand…

Boral hard plaster would be an equivalent product. All gypsum based setting products.
Generally your smaller plasterboard supply companies would have contacts to appropriate solid plasterers.
