Euromix™ Sandstone is 100% full acrylic super flexible texture coating for decorative finishing over Euromix™ Renders and other substrates.
Euromix™ Sandstone is a premium quality 100% fully acrylic flexibly texture coating, manufactured with special graded sand, fillers and other chemicals designed for decorative finishing over Euromix Renders.
The typical grain size (the aggregate used to achieve the textured finish) for Sand Stone is @ 0.9mm diameter.
Sand Stone is applied by trowel over suitably primed substrates to provide a decorative, protective coating with an attractive stylish shimmery appearance.
White in colour at the time of manufacture, Euromix Sandstone Texture Coating can be pigmented (tinted) to achieve a desired colour.
Euromix™ Sandstone Texture
15 litre plastic buckets.
In the bucket the material appears as a wet, off-white, thick paint material containing sand.
Thorough stir the Sandstone in the bucket, using a power stirrer, prior to application.
The Sandstone is towelled 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.
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
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.
