See: COLOUR CHART
Application recommendations: on properly prepared
background offering adequate keying, cast on or spray on a minimum of 10 mm
in one pass for floated finishes or a minimum of 15 mm if a scratched finish is required.
On waterproofed or smooth backgrounds spray or cast on a 1st bonding
coat of about 3 mm adding 500 grams of SBR per bag of product. Straighten
the work immediately after with an appropriate tool. Float (sponge, wooden
or plastic) after 2-3 hours or more depending on weather conditions.
Do not work in temperatures below 5oC or above 30oC. Protect fresh mortar from rain, frost or strong drying wind. In hot weather, dampen the background adequately and cure the work by applying a light water mist several times for a period of 72 hours.
When Thermocromex is applied as a finishing coat on an existing backing coat, the maximum thickness for floated finishes is 5-6mm or 6-8mm for scratched finishes. Please refer to: Thermocromex application recommendations
