Product: Ready to use, wet topcoat render for thin coat application. Acrylic based decorative finish with scratched or dragged grain texture for internal and external areas. Suitable for hand or machine application.
Intended use: A topcoat render application providing decoration and protection to facades. For application over old and new mineral and organic coatings, concrete surfaces, and mineral and organic basecoats.
Grain size: 1.5mm
Properties: Weather resistant, hydrophobic, water vapour permeable, good mechanical resistance, easy to use.
Coverage: approx. 10m2
Substrate: Substrates must be sound, clean, dry, free from frost, dust efflorescence and notwater repellent.Existing mineral based coatings and paints must be sound and wellbonded to the substrate (confirm with pull off tests and/or cross cut tests acc. To Baumit guidelines).
– Basecoats on External Wall Insulation systems (see above)
– Lime and cement renders, concrete
– Well bonded mineral, silicate and dispersion paints and coatings
– Organic basecoats
– Gypsum plasterboards (pretreated with 2 coats of primer)
– Gypsum plasters
Mixing: Baumit GranoporTop must be well and slowly mixed with an electric hand mixer before application.It may not be mixed with other paint materials. Where required a minimal amount of water (max. 1%) may be added to improve workability.
Application: The GranoporTop is applied with a stainless steel trowel or a fine spray machine and trowelled throughto the grain thickness to produce a full and even coat. The surface is then textured using a plastic float, moving in tight circular motions. It should be applied systematically and continuously in complete sections.
