Cement-free reinforcing base coat for ETICS. Ready for use.
Water-based ready to use a material containing an organic binder, mineral fillers, and additives. High expansion capability; therefore reduced susceptibility to cracking. It is recommended and ETA certified for use with excellent results as a reinforcing coat for embedding alkali resistant mesh STRONG NET on exterior thermal-insulating systems (ETICS), enhancing the durability and efficiency of such systems and in particular in the CLIMATotal® System and as a leveling coat on mineral and organic substrates. it is suitable for exterior and interior use.
» High reliability against impact stresses
» No intermediate coat (primer) necessary
» Highly weather resistant
» Ready to use
trowel, airless or air-assisted spray gun
Dry to touch
SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
To ensure proper adhesion and adequate substrate penetration, the substrate must be dry, clean and free of dust, oil, salt, rust, loose paint and residues, blistered paint etc.
» Application on External Wall Insulation Systems ETICS (CLIMATOTAL): The thermal insulation panels (EPS & XPS) should be applied staggered (like brickwork) and tightly butt-jointed. Any open joints between the panels must be filled with insulation material or PU FOAM. The surface must be completely level and roughed up. Apply TOTAL BOND to the insulation panels using a stainless steel trowel. Press STRONG NET into the wet material and level the surface. Mesh strips should be overlapped approx. 10cm at the edges. The glass fibre mesh must be completely embedded.
» Tools: Trowel, airless or air-assisted spray gun.
» Cleaning: Immediately after the application, the tools must be cleaned with warm water and soap or a detergent solution. Remove as much material as possible from tools before cleaning.
» Thinning: No dilution is recommended.
» Dry to Recoat: 24-48 hours at 25ºC and RH 50%.
» Through Drying time: The drying time depends on the temperature and the relative humidity.
» Stir well with a flat paddle, before application, and at regular intervals during application.
» Do not apply at temperatures below 10ºC or above 35ºC or at humidity levels above 65%.
» Do not apply if rain is imminent.
» Protect the applied area from rain by using waterproof sheeting placed so as to avoid contact with the painted surface.
» Keep out of direct sunlight and avoid temperatures above 35ºC.
» Keep containers tightly closed when not in use and store in frost-free conditions.
