Surface Preparation

For best result surfaces should be dry and clean from stains, dirt, grease and other contaminants. New concrete should be re-bonded by Primer coat (sealer base) if the surface is absorbent. Old chalky paints should be cleaned properly and re-bonded by primer coat to insure proper base for new painting materials. For glossy surfaces or previous coatings should be roughened with sandpaper to make good inter-coat adhesion.

Painting System

- Apply one coat of “NATEX PRIMER” or any other suitable type of primers, depending on the surface and leave for full dry. - Apply one coat of “NATEX RUSTINO” by steel trowel. Make the required design by the rough plastic trowel. Clean the trowel from time to time during application with a sponge saturated with tap water. - Smooth the surface and make it uniform by soft plain plastic trowel to get the desired beautiful and uniform appearance (if required).
1-“NATEX RUSTINO” should be applied by professional painter to get the desired design and spreading rate.
2-During application sufficient pressure should be by trowel for strong adhesion.
3-For any bend or circular surfaces has to be given more attention during application.
