Punic wax is a matte or glossy (after polishing) finish coat for high finish lime plasters such as Decorative Stucco, Marmorino or Tadelakt. It is water soluble, making it easy to use with a brush or spatula. It can also be applied on natural paint to make the surface dirt resistant or to create various decorative effects.
When using the product, the complete product information must be observed.
Punic Wax is a glossy finish coat for:
– Decorative Stucco, Tadelakt, Marmorino and 0.5 mm lime plaster
– Marbled effects (e.g. vegetable milk paint)
– Casein paint
It is also used as an additive in casein paint to:
– obtain spatulate effects
– do stencil decoration
– create a glossy finish
On Marmorino, Decorative Stucco, 0.5 mm lime plaster: Apply the Punic Wax undiluted with a Venetian spatula or a Spring Steel Trowel in one or more thin layers. Apply only to surfaces previously treated with Marseille soap. After drying, polish with a smoothing board.
On Tadelakt: Apply the Punic Wax undiluted in a thin coat with a ball-rolled cloth, and buff immediately with a clean, dry, soft ball-rolled cloth. Apply only to surfaces previously treated with Marseille soap.
Marbled effects: On marbled effects made with Vegetable Milk Paint, for example, apply the Punic Wax in a thin layer with a trowel. To obtain an even shine, polish after drying with a smoother, a soft cloth, a horsehair brush, or a polishing machine (be careful, too much pressure and RPM can damage the surface due to the heat). The Punic wax coating gives the treated surface depth and transparency effects reminiscent of real marble.
Polishing wall paint: By adding 15% Punic wax to Vegetable Milk Paint (0.75kg of Punic wax for 5kg of powder) or a tempera, a beautiful satin shine is obtained after drying and polishing. Mix the wax only in the already mixed paint, and after its resting time.
Approximately 5 – 6 hours at 20 °C.
