SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
New Plaster
1. Remove all loose friable material.
2. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted 1:1 with water to all new plaster. Allow to dry.
3. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Paintcor’s RippleTex, using:
a) Sponge Roller for a rounded ripple finish.
b) Apply diluted with water and a sheepskin roller to give a semi-textured finish. (see note)
Previously Painted Plaster
1. Check adhesion of existing paint. (Cross hatch method) Using a Stanley knife, cut through the paint surface to the substrate vertically and horizontally approximately 3mm apart, creating little squares. If the edges of the squares curl up, and the square can easily be removed, this means the adhesion of the old paint system is failing.
If adhesion is poor:
1. Remove all old paint back to existing plaster.
2. If surface is powdery (chalking), wash to remove all powder. Allow to dry.
3. Apply 1 coat of Paintcor’s AcrySeal Acrylic Sealer diluted 1:1 with water to all exposed plaster and washed chalking surfaces. Allow to dry.
4. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Paintcor’s RippleTex, using:
a) Sponge Roller for a rounded ripple finish.
b) Apply diluted with water and a sheepskin roller to give a semi-textured finish. (please see note)
If adhesion is good:
1. Wash walls to remove all dirt and dust. Allow to dry.
2. Apply RippleTex as per no 4 above (please see note)
Note: RippleTex is supplied ready for use with a sponge (Ripple) Roller. The ripple effect can be adjusted from a slightly pointed finish to a rounded finish by addition of small quantities of water (½ – 1 cup water / 20 litre). Should a semi-textured finish be required, add ± 1 litre of water per 20 litres of RippleTex and apply with a normal sheepskin roller.
Applying RippleTex with a ripple roller requires professional painters with knowledge of applying textured finishes. Incorrectly applied RippleTex will give a poor, uneven finish. Please contact our Technical Department for training on application of textured coatings. Avoid applying RippleTex in Direct sunlight or when ambient temperatures are 30°C or above.
TIPS ON TEXTURES • Work Quickly. • Keep a wet edge at all times. • Work corner to corner, do not stop in the middle of the wall. • Use scaffolding on double story walls with two applicators meeting each other’s wet edge.
APPLICATION EQUIPMENT
Apply by Brush or Ripple Textured Sponge Roller.
