Euromix™ Quartz is a coarse marble-based acrylic texture coating designed for decorative finishing over Euromix™ Renders and other substrates.
Euromix™ Quartz is a premium quality, coarse marble based acrylic texture coating formulated to provide an attractive finish on suitable substrates. Designed to provide superior flexibility, crack resistance, strong adhesion, and water repellency with the addition of Euromix™ Hydroshield.
The typical grain size (the aggregate used to achieve the textured finish) for Euromix™ Quartz is @ 1.1-1.3mm in diameter.
Euromix™ Quartz is applied by trowel or spray over suitably primed substrates. Providing a decorative and protective coating with a subtle sparkle to its finish over the surface. Euromix™ Quartz can be pigmented (tinted) to achieve a desired colour.
Euromix™ Quartz Texture.
15 litre plastic buckets.
In the bucket the material appears as a wet, off-white, thick paint material containing sand.
Thorough stir the Euromix™ Quartz in the bucket, using a power stirrer, prior to application.
The Euromix™ Quartz is trowelled on to the substrate, to a thickness determined by the coarsest particles in the material and then finished with a plastic finishing trowel applied in a circular motion, to achieve an even textured appearance.
It is imperative that a 'wet-edge' is maintained at all time and that the material is not over worked as this will likely result in patchiness and joint lines showing in the coating. Ensure that there are sufficient trowel hands available on large areas.
Do not apply Euromix™ Texture in windy conditions or in temperatures outside the range 10°C to 26°C, or where the substrate is wet, or rain is imminent within 5 hours of completion.
Keep newly coated areas protected from rain and moisture for at least twelve (12) hours, longer in the lower temperature range. Do not apply if rain or frost is imminent or possible before the product has properly dried.
Shield the coating and the substrate from moisture for at least 24 hours.
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 (at 25°C & 50% RH):
Two (2) to four (4) hours.
Twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hours weather dependent.
Sandstone Texture cannot be applied directly over PVC, polystyrene (EPS), AAC or other absorbent materials without the application of a suitable base coat first.
Euromix recommends the use of Euromix™ Acrylic Primer as the priming coat with Euromix Sandstone.
