All the relevant product data sheets are to be read for additional information like pot life, mixing instructions, surface preparation, ventilation, temperature application limitations, etc.
- For concrete, all surfaces are to be clean, sound, free of laitance, oil and loose friable material.
- For brickwork, rake out all joint work in brickwork to ensure that all loose unsound material is removed resulting in a surface as in point 1 above.
Note: prior to the application of these products it is recommended that the surfaces are made slightly damp – but no free water left on the surface, this assists in ease of application and reduces suction from the substrate.
Rendering the Surface Smooth
- For a “bagging type application” to render your brickwork smooth blend sand and cement 2:1 by volume incorporating a gauging liquid to achieve desired consistency. The gauging liquid made up of dura.®latex and water blended 1:1 by volume.
- Other application thicknesses of mortars, see the dura.®latex data sheet.
- Should a high performance smooth profile be required, see data sheet dura.®rep FC for profiling surfaces to receive other coating applications.
- dura.®rep FC
- Festo mixer with a helical coil mixing head
- Suitable 25 litre mixing steel can to mix in
