Application of decorative plasters – trendy artistic plaster making a perfect decoration of modern residential and public access interiors.
Ideally combines with metal, glass and rough timber. Its surface resembles natural raw concrete.
Place of use: walls and ceilings indoors.
Types of substrate: plaster, concrete, stone, plasterboards, wood-like boards and any other sound, clean and appropriately prepared substrate.
The substrate should be: sufficiently sound, stable, free of layers which would impair product bonding, in particular dust, dirt, lime, oils, fats, residues of paints and other. Primed with FOX DEKORATOR CONTACT COAT.
Mix thoroughly before use.
Product of defined colour.
Plan the order and way of application before work, check the final effect on a small sample first!
The CONCRETE plaster can be applied with two coats. Apply the first coat smooth, keep the coat thickness the same as the grain size, leave to dry completely (12-24 h, depending on temperature and humidity in a room).
Slightly moist the whole decorated surface with water before application of the second coat. Apply the second coat evenly upon the whole decorated surface. The drying plaster should be troweled with the flat-applied trowel edge. When troweling, the plaster pores get sealed and characteristic surface smoothness forms.
Depending on the intended top finish (delicate or intensive multiple polishing with a trowel), the smooth, matt or satin glossy surface forms.
Individual, scattered scores and gaps make the concrete surface more decorative. Remember to keep the trowel edge perfectly clean during work.
You can also apply one, thicker coat. Stamp the surface with a flat trowel. when you pull the trowel away from the wall you should see the spikes created. Wait a couple of minutes and slightly smooth out with the trowel. See video how-to on facebook: https://fb.watch/efC1u-QZ1l/
Average consumption: 2 kg for 1 m² for a single coat. Note that the coverage depends on substrate texture, absorptiveness and preparation, intended decorative effect, installer’s experience, coat thickness, number of coats, application method. In order to check the actual coverage for particular conditions, one should apply a sample upon the actual substrate first.
Temperature of use: from +5°C up to +30°C, the time of drying can extend in low temperature and/or high humidity
