Uses

FINESSE maybe used on suitably primed internal and external walls providing a decorative, protective coating/finish.

Suitable Surfaces

FINESSE is suitable to be applied to suitably primed, sound off form concrete, cement render, CSR Hebel,  fibre-cement sheeting, Harditex sheeting, cement block work, plasterboard and brick surfaces. Substrate or joints may need to be prepared with MAXIJOINT and/or MAXICRETE. NB: See appropriate Product Data Sheets.

Specification

The information contained in this product data sheet is typical but does not constitute a full specification as conditions and specific requirements may vary from project to project. The instructions should be considered as a minimum requirement but the applicator or contractor must use their skill, knowledge and experience to carry out additional works as may be necessary to meet the requirements of the project. Specification for specific projects should be sought from the Company in writing.

Limitations

Ambient temperature: Min. 10oC Max. 35oC. Surface temperature: Min. 5oC Max. 50oC Do not apply if rain or frost is imminent or possible before product has properly dried. The product should not be subjected to hydrostatic pressure and excessive rising damp. Not suitable for foot traffic.

Benefits and Advantages

Ease of application.
Excellent adhesion to primed surface.
Excellent weathering & abrasion resistance.
Allows surface to breathe.
Application safety, water based, non combustable.
High tensile strength.

Precautions in Use

The use of gloves and goggles is recommended as the product may irritate skin and eyes.

Priming and Surface Preparation

Good preparation is essential. Surfaces must be sound, stable, dry, clean and free of dust, loose, flaking, friable material and substances that may diminish adhesion.

 

Prime surface with MAXIPRIME which maybe tinted as close as possible to the FINESSE colour. Allow to dry for approximately 4 hours before top coating.

Application

 Apply FINESSE either by hopper spray or trowel. Spray evenly over the surface using cross - lap technique. Spray is best suited to hide structural imperfections. If required, up to 10% clean water maybe added to assist with spray ability. Use plastic trowel only if substrate is free from imperfections. It is recommended that the product be thoroughly stirred using a power stirrer.

Application Experience
We recommend that the product is applied by person with the appropriate skills and experience for the type of product. The acceptability of the surface is the responsibility of the applicator.

Coverage

The stated average coverage rate may vary depending upon type, condition, porosity, texture of the surface and application technique.

 

Finesse:
Average approximate spread rate is 14 to 18 sq. m per 15 litre pail. The useage may vary dependent upon type, texture, condition and porosity of the substrate and application technique.

Maxiprime (Primer):
Refer to the Maxiprime Product Data Sheet.
Undiluted: 6m² to 8 m² per litre per coat. Diluted with the addition of up to 30% clean water: ± 14 m² per litre per coat.
Tinted: Apply undiluted at 6m² to 8 m² per litre per coat. Note: Dilution of tinted primer will effect and change the colour.

Colours

Available in a wide range of colours, made to order.

 

Colour Batches
Whilst care is taken to accurately colour match, batch to batch variations may occur for reasons which may be beyond our control. We strongly advise that project requirements are ordered in a single batch lot to avoid colour matching from batch to batch. Minimum quantities and tinting charges may apply.

 

Contractor Responsibility
It is the responsibility of the contractor or applicator to ensure that the colour is within specification prior to its application. The Company shall not be liable for any colour variations after the product has been applied. Further, the applicator should use product for touch-ups from the same batches used to do the original coats.

Drying and Curing

Drying and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the surface, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climate conditions and application technique and therefore drying and curing can only be given as a guide.

 

Touch Dry: 2 to 4 hours at 20oc Recoat: 24 hours Hard Dry: 2 to 4 days

Storage

Store in dry, cool area and protect from heat, frost, moisture and damage. Available in 15 Lt Pails. Shelf Life: 6 months in unopened containers. Containers should be rotated to prevent settlement.

Clean Up

Wet spills can be cleaned with water. Ensure product does not enter the drains. Care must be taken to avoid damaging the coating.

Safety & Precautions

The use of gloves and goggles is recommended as the product may irritate skin and eyes.
