Euralbi Fino has been designed for use as a fine finish, white set top coat. Fino works best as the finishing coat applied over a Euralbi Plus base coat.
The Euroset Range of white sets are pre-packed, quality controlled, fine powdered gypsum based plasters, manufactured in Europe and imported exclusively by Euroset® for use in Australia and New Zealand. The unique thermal conductivity, permeability, mechanical resistance and hydraulic setting capabilities of gypsum has been enhanced by the quarrying of only the best raw materials, the addition of selected minerals and with the quality control achieved in a modern factory.
Euroset White Set Plasters are suitable for internal plastering and patching applications over most substrate surfaces, including clay and cement bricks / blocks, pre-cast or site poured concrete, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC), plasterboard, fibre cement and expanded polystyrene (EPS).
Mixing and Application
Euralbi Fino can be prepared in a bucket by drill or by trowel on a table. In all cases clean, uncontaminated water must be used and the material be mixed in small quantities, approximately half a bag at a time (depending on the number of ‘finishing trowel-hands’ applying the material).
Approximately 0.6-0.8 litres of clean water is required for every 1 kg of Euralbi Fino mixed.
The average working time for Euralbi Fino, after mixing is 50 minutes (depending on temperature, humidity and air movement on the site).
Finishing – Ready for Painting
After 2 – 3 coats have been applied, as described previously, by experienced trades people, Euralbi Fino should be ready for preparation for the application of paint.
Euralbi Fino should be sealed with only oil based, binding sealer – usually only one coat is required – before painting or finishing with other architectural finishes.
A mirror or polished finish can be achieved if desired. Such a finish is very attractive and substantially more expensive, as it takes extra care and time and requires highly skilled tradespeople.
Like all traditional set plaster finishes, Euralbi Fino should be sealed with only an oil based, binding sealer, like Euromix Solvent Based Sealer/Primer, before painting or finishing with other architectural finishes. Remove any dust from the surface of the Euralbi before applying the binding sealer, usually only one coat of binding sealer is required to prepare the plaster for further painting.
Drying and curing of the product is affected by type, dryness and porosity of the substrate, temperature, humidity, ventilation, climatic conditions and application technique and therefore drying and curing times given below are a guide (at 25C & 50% RH).
Thirty (30) to sixty (60) minutes.
Twenty-four (24) hours
