Indoor and outdoor surfaces should be in conformity with the current standards in force. Surfaces must be homogeneously absorbent, sound, clean, dry, nonfriable and deprived of salts, moisture and moulds.
For areas where MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster will be exposed to running water ( shower , washbasin , bathtub …) a reasonably water resistant mineral support surface should first be applied ( resurfacing mortar , cement mortar , cement / lime mortar , hydraulic lime mortar ). We recommend our resurfacing mortar MULTITOP .
For a Tadelakt finish : apply to a dried and floated finish coat of MORTIER D’ASSAINISSEMENT GROS rough lime mortar .
For a Marmorino Venetian plaster finish : apply to a dried and floated finish coat of MARBREX R or MINERAL 000 lime plasters .
For other surfaces, contact us for technical support.
In an appropriate container, mix 12 litres of water and the required quantity of pigment (prevent the formation of lumps. If necessary, filter the coloring fluid using a fine sieve). Gradually add the powder from the 20 kg bag of MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster . Mix thoroughly to obtain a homogeneous and rather solid paste. Adjust the consistency of the paste by adding water where necessary. Leave to rest for 15 minutes and re-mix just before application. This will give a better homogeneity.
MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster can be prepared in a concrete mixer. Contact us.
Appropriate tools : stainless steel trowel , plastic finishing trowel , river stone .
For a Tadelakt finish : apply one even coat of 3mm to 5mm thick MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster using a stainless steel trowel to cover the MORTIER D’ASSAINISSEMENT GROS rough lime mortar coat. While the coat is still damp, eliminate all voids with a plastic finishing trowel . Finally, polish mechanically before it dries completely, using a river stone or a stainless steel trowel to provide a smooth, sometimes shiny, finish and treat with a soft soap ( Marseille soap or Black soap ) to acquire the final appearance and water resistance .
For a Marmorino Venetian plaster finish : apply one even coat of 1mm to 1.5mm thick MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster using a stainless steel trowel to cover the grain of the MARBREX R or MINERAL 000 lime plasters . When the coats begins to harden, apply a thin second coat a fresco ( wet on wet ) and polish it with the stainless steel trowel or the river stone to provide a smooth, sometimes shiny, finish. It is possible to treat with a soft soap ( Marseille soap or Black soap ) or other protection.
A polychrome effect may be obtained by overlapping different colors of MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster or by applying a final coat a fresco of our FINITION S lime stucco .
24 hrs to 48 hrs depending on the absorbency of the substrate and the ambient humidity.
Where humidity, condensation or water-vapor is present, efflorescence, whitening, variations in color and fading may occur on surfaces that are not totally carbonated. Before treat, protect the end result from any rain for several days. To accelerate carbonation after the stucco plastering has thoroughly dried, we recommend that you spray the surface gently from bottom to top with clean water using a low pressure spray. Avoid any streaming. Repeat this several times, leaving time to dry in between each spraying.
- For Tadelakt finish : 3 kg to 5 kg / m².
- For Marmorino Venetian plaster finish : 1 kg to 2 kg / m².
Depending on the surface and the desired end result.
To protect the surfaces from water and stains: use a soft soap ( Marseille soap or black soap ) or our CIRE SOLIDE natural bees and carnauba wax (2 to 3 coats). For a highly protection, do not apply soft soap but waterproof using our HYTOP water and oil repellent .
For outdoor work, waterproof with 1 or 2 coats of our HYDRO R water repellent for a natural matt finish or with our HYTOP water and oil repellent for a shine wax finish. Check for total waterproofing before running any water.
Clean all tools with water immediately after use.
Apply and store at a temperature of +5°C to +30°C (40°F or 85°F).
Do not apply to hot or damp surfaces or those directly exposed to the sun, or in the wind or the rain.
Each wall section should be finished the same day. All overlapping should be done in corners or door angles.
Protect the surrounding areas from splashes or clean with water immediately.
Irritating to the eyes and skin. MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster contains lime and is alkaline on contact with water. During mixing and application avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with the eyes, rinse well with fresh water and contact a specialist if any symptoms persist. Avoid prolonged contact with skin. Keep out of the reach of children.
MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster will keep for one year in its original packaging. Protect from frost and humidity. However, as it is essentially lime , it will keep for several hours if it is covered with a thin layer of clean water. However, we recommend that you only prepare the quantity required.
MARMOLAKT tadelakt plaster is conditioned in recyclable paper bags of 20 kg.
