PREPARATION OF THE SUBSTRATE

To obtain a regular, consistent and waterproof surface, previously plaster the substrate withREVAT® CAL ENFOSCADO. This product can be applied manually with a trowel or with a spraying machine.

APPLICATION AND FINISHING REVAT® LIME STUCCO

KneadREVAT® CAL ESTUCOmanually or mechanically with the indicated amount of water to form a lump-free paste that is smooth to the touch. Respect the mixing water to avoid changes in colour.

Spread the paste with a trowel on the hardened and curedREVAT® CAL ENFOSCADO substrate, achieving a thickness between 2 and 4 mm. Work joints or cut-outs can be delimited with masking tape.

The final finish is achieved by gently trowelling the surface with a fine sponge trowel.

SURFACE PREPARATION FOR REVAT® FINE LIME FINISHING

Apply a layer of about 3 mm thick of REVAT®CALESTUCO on the hardened and curedREVAT® CAL ENFOSCADOsupport, trowel and allow to dry.

APPLICATION AND FINISHING REVAT® FINE LIME

Mix REVAT® CAL FINO with the required amount of water until a smooth, lump-free, unctuous paste is obtained.

  • Matt finish: a single pass with the trowel without overcoating.
