Instructions for use

Mixing
For manual mixing, add to the mixing container 10-12 litres of water for each 25 Kg bag of Plaster Gypsum Perlite. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical plaster mixer or low speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 3-4 minutes, until a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved.
Leave the mixed material to stand for 5 min and briefly remix without addition of water.
Manual mixing is allowed for small batch quantities and mix for approx. 1-2 min or when homogenous mix is achieved.
When required add 0.5 litres of Vetonit Bond 2 to the mixing water and adjust the water requirement accordingly for each 25 kg bag. Follow same mixing procedure as above.
Mixed material must be used within 30 minute. Do not add water once the mixed plaster mortar start to stiffen or harden.

Application
Plaster Gypsum Perlite is generally applied in a single coat method. Use directly on block walls & rough surfaces. On smooth concrete surfaces a spatter dash SB should be applied before applying Plaster Gypsum Perlite.
Apply mixed material using spray machine or trowel technique to cover the area to desired thickness. Lightweight leveling tools are required in conjunction with trowel to fill in holes.
When the plaster stiffens lightly, treat the surface to a smooth level to eliminate all traces of protrusions and undulations.
Let the plaster set for about 30 min., using wet sponge, wipe the surface to a creamy smooth finish.

Curing
Let the Plaster Gypsum Perlite to fully dry itself. Do not use water.
Paints & Coatings can be applied once the plaster has dried out completely, generally after 7 days.
