MINERAL 000 lime plaster is a natural and eco-friendly lime plaster for indoor and outdoor decoration. MINERAL 000 lime plaster has been modified and improved using the latest techniques so as to offer excellent aesthetic and adhesive qualities. MINERAL 000 lime plaster provides a very fine texture with nuances and warm colors. A variety of finishes can be obtained: applying in one coat, sponge floated for a delicately rustic surface, or in two coats, burnished for a rough stone look or a smooth finish like matt stucco.
Where do it use MINERAL 000 ?
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.
MINERAL 000 lime plaster is suitable for indoor decoration (halls, staircases, living rooms, bedrooms …) as well as building facades. MINERAL 000 lime plaster is particularly recommended for historical buildings, in any town center renovation ventures as well as for an improved aesthetic integration of new buildings into existing environments.
▸ Surface preparation
MINERAL 000 lime plaster can be applied directly to natural lime plasters or to lime / cement plasters, preferably a fresco (wet on wet). When used a secco (after drying), dampen the wall with clean water, avoiding streaming before applying MINERAL 000 lime plaster.
Concrete surfaces, cement, dusty lime plasters, gypsum, old compatible paint (peeling paint and semi-gloss or gloss paints must be sanded or removed or primed with a water-based primer) should be fixed beforehand using our SOUS COUCHE POUR CHAUX EXTRA lime primer.
Plasterboards and other types of boards must be primed with a water-based primer before applying SOUS COUCHE POUR CHAUX EXTRA lime primer.
For a rapid, economical and attractive finish on difficult or irregular surfaces, mix MINERAL 000 lime plaster with our eco friendly multi-function mortar MULTITOP (proportion 1/1). This will give a lime plaster finish which is both waterproof and highly adherent.
In an appropriate container, mix 10 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 30 kg bag of MINERAL 000 lime 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.
MINERAL 000 lime plaster can be prepared in a concrete mixer. Contact us.
Appropriate tools: stainless steel trowel , sponge float. MINERAL 000 lime plaster may be projected.
A Patina effect can be obtained using our VELATURA glaze.
MINERAL 000 lime plaster should be used as the base for any of our stucco finishes ( Marmorino, Tadelakt, Mantovano…) used in combination with our MARBREX L, MARMOLAKT and FINITION S lime stuccoes.
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 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.
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).
2 kg to 3 kg / m², depending on the surface and the desired end result.
Do not apply to hot or damp surfaces or those directly exposed to the sun, or in the wind or the rain.
