Ensure surface is thoroughly clean, dry and free from all loose dirt, chalk, grease, fungi, algae and flaking paint. This can be achieved by brushing with a wire/stiff coir brush followed by water jetting if required. Fill up all minor cracks and defects with cement and sand mixture in the ratio 1:3. If after thoroughly cleaning the surface, the surface still exhibits chalkiness, the surface should be coated with Dulux Weathershield E1000 Sealer. For areas severely affected by algae or fungus application of Dulux Aquatech Pre-Treatment coat is recommended. Fill up all minor cracks and defects with Dulux Aquatech Range of crack fillers as per requirement / cement and sand mixture in the ratio 1:3. Avoid application of putty or filling compound. Weathershield Creation Stonetex should not be applied to the surfaces or substrates which are exposed to continuous seepage or dampness.
By air spray (5.5mm at 80-120 psi)
No thinning of the material is recommended for the final coat. But for ease of application a little water can be sprinkled.
