Interesting antique or multi-color effects can be created with natural pigments and our VELATURA glaze or using our BADIMAT® lime wash paint over the MARBREX® R lime plaster surface.
Drying time - Carbonation
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. Protect the end result from any rain for several days. To accelerate carbonation after the lime plaster 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.
To protect the surfaces from water and stains: you can waterproof using our HYDRO R water repellent (1 or 2 coats) and if you want a shine finish you can wax with our CIRE SOLIDE bees and carnauba wax (1 or 2 coats).
For outdoor work, waterproof with 1 or 2 coats of our HYDRO R water repellent
2 kg to 3 kg / m˛, depending on the surface and the desired end result.
