It is a coloured, elastic, protective, thick-layered coating in paste, ready to use, conceived for the finishing, decoration, protection of external facades, with anticarbonate effect. It is composed of selected sands, crystalline carbonates, pigments, high stability to the light, various admixtures which allow the easy application, all of them bound by acrylic elastomer resins in water emulsion.
Resistant to chemical and atmospheric agents, waterproof, resistant to low and high temperatures, excellent stability and resistance to alkali, UV rays, and the microcrackings due to the substrates structural movements.
Thanks to its final look and particular elasticity, it is suitable for both internal and external uses. It can be employed: for old and new buildings, on substrates like pre-mixed, traditional and cement plasters, prefabricated panels in fibre-cement, old coatings and substrates which present microcrackings not bigger than 0,5 mm.
Substrates conditions and their preparation are at the base of a good result for the coloured coating (not referring to application’s performance quality). Substrates may be in lime cementitious base or similar. Than they must be solid, dry and perfectly cured. No grease traces, dust, humidity rejection, saltpetre, and anything could compromise a good bonding.
In case of restoration, before the application it is recommended to remove eventual old damaged coatings, restoring with cementitious mortar, then continue with the curing of all the adjustements effectuated before the application.
Before the application, it is necessary an ANTELASTO basing coat of the same colour, to improve the coating’s manageability and obtain a homogeneous absorption of the surfaces.
The application of the coating need to be effectuated through inox trowel and finished with plastic trowel in circle movements.
