Acrylic elastomeric decorative plaster for facade rendering
Decorative high solids, ready for use plaster formulated with UV crossing linking, highly elastic and hydrophobically modified polymer dispersion, with natural granules, pigments, and additives. It is suitable for exterior or interior surfaces of concrete, plaster, masonry and pre-painted surfaces. It is recommended and ETA certified for use with excellent results as finishing layer over exterior thermal-insulating systems, enhancing the durability and efficiency of such systems and in particular the CLIMATotal® System. FLEXO PLASTER is specially designed for warm Mediterranean climates and withstands winter temperatures as well as high summer temperatures by virtue of its highly elastic and water-repellent binder technology. It covers hairline cracks and it offers color retention, high adhesion, and good resistance to rain, frost, air pollution, sea moisture and tough weather conditions.
» Excellent dirt pick-up resistance
» High weather resistant
» High elasticity
» High color stability
SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
» To ensure proper adhesion and adequate substrate penetration, the surface must be dry, clean and free of dust,oil, salt, rust, loose paint and residues, blistered paint etc. Remove all moss, fungi and algae by mechanical abrasion and wash with soapy water and allow the substrate to dry.
» Use KRAFT PUTTY or other suitable repairing material of KRAFT to fill gaps, cracks and other damaged surfaces.
» It is recommended that fresh concrete, stucco, plaster and gypsum surfaces are allowed to dry for at least 4 weeks before the application of the FLEXO PLASTER.
» On porous, new surfaces or already painted substrates and on Strong Bond in CLIMATotal® System apply one coat of PLASTER PRIMER.
» After 24 hours apply one coat of FLEXO PLASTER with stainless steel trowel, and level the coat to the size of the grain with a plastic trowel. On wide surfaces it is recommended to apply without interruption, wet on wet, in order to avoid visible joints.
» Tools: Trowel, render spray machine.
» Cleaning: Immediately after the application the tools must
be cleaned with warm water and soap or a detergent solution.
Remove as much plaster as possible from tools before
» Dilution: Does not required.
» Touch to dry time: 1-2 hours at 25ºC and RH 50%.
» Superficial Drying time: 24 hours, at 25ºC and RH 50%.
» Complete through drying time: 14 days, at 25ºC and
» Unfavorable conditions delay drying which can cause surface effects because of the water-soluble additives especially in deep colors. These effects are normally removed automatically on further weathering.
» Stir well with a flat paddle, before application, and at regular intervals during application.
» Do not apply at temperatures below 10ºC or above 35ºC or at humidity levels above 65%.
» Do not apply if rain is imminent.
» Protect the newly applied area from direct sunlight, strong wind and rain by using waterproof sheeting placed so as to avoid contact with the painted surface.
