Tockay 0.5 mm lime plaster is a natural coating for the interior. It is ideal for humid rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens because of its high alkalinity which makes it naturally antifungal. It is a powder product that can be diluted with water and applied with various spatulas. It can be tinted with the full range of Tockay dry pigments. It has an improved adhesion and is easy to apply and structure.
A variety of decorative effects are possible depending on the application technique chosen: textured in a rustic manner, ironed, or glossed with a spatula to create sumptuous fresco effects. The plaster can then be finished with Marseille soap, wax or glaze.
When using the product, the complete product information must be observed.
Indoors, on all solid and slightly absorbent substrates: mineral plaster, plasterboard, gypsum cellulose boards, concrete.
Wood, chipboard, emulsion/dispersion paints, oil-based paints, plastic coatings, glue slurry. All glossy, non-absorbent and permanently wet surfaces.
– Venetian trowel (240 x 100 mm)
– Venetian trowel (200 x 80 mm)
– Spring Steel trowel (200 x 80 mm)
The surface must be dry, absorbent, coverable, solid, clean, dry, free of grease and any coloring substance that may appear by capillary action.
Tinted lime plasters must be applied on a completely dry surface, with uniform texture and absorption. Otherwise, different intensities of color and reflectivity may appear on the surface after drying. As a rule, limewash renderings may have a higher gloss when dry on non-absorbent or slightly absorbent surfaces.
For coloured lime renderings, it is recommended to apply at least 1 mm of Tockay Lime Plaster 1.4 mm to the entire dry surface of the repaired walls or walls with differences in absorption or texture.
– Protect untreated surfaces
– Remove traces of glue and other chalky or weak finishes
– Remove the remains of wallpaper glue
– Carefully brush off powdery backgrounds
– Allow new coating to dry completely
– Remove binder build-up from plaster surfaces
– Remove all formwork oil residues from the concrete
– Remove brittle, loose parts of plaster
– Repair cracks and holes with a similar material
– Block stained or colored substrates with substances that can form by capillary action with Alum Priming Salt, after the first lime wall finish has dried (test coat required)
– Clean mineral substrates affected by mildew with soda lye or treat them with Fungi Stop
On absorbent surfaces such as mineral plaster, gypsum plasterboard, gypsum cellulose boards and concrete, apply a coat of casein primer and let dry completely.
On absorbent surfaces such as mineral plaster, gypsum board, cellulose-gypsum board, and concrete, apply a coat of casein primer and let dry completely.
Do not apply the coating at temperatures below 8°C. Avoid direct sunlight, drafts, dirt and surface temperatures below 8°C and above 25°C. Avoid drying too quickly. Low temperatures and high humidity in the air or building can create a higher gloss.
PREPARATION OF THE COATING
Pour the powder into the appropriate amount of clean, cold water, stir using a powerful mixer (a drill with a whisk attachment) and avoid lumps. Let stand at least 15 minutes, then mix again before use.
QUANTITY OF WATER TO USE
0.3 to 0.32 litres of water for 1kg of powder. Adjust the mix of filler and water to suit the surface, as a little more water may be required for a particular application.
Apply with a smoothing trowel, giving structure to the desired effect. Sponge, smooth, structure or polish/press the coating to shine depending on the desired effect. Other special effects can be achieved by mixing the lime wall finish with Kreidezeit decorative aggregates. Maximum layer thickness: 0.7 – 3 mm.
WATER REPELLENT / HIGHER GLOSS
It is possible to waterproof the surface. For best results, apply Marseille soap to the dried surface as soon as possible, but no later than 24 hours after installation. Apply the soap with a brush, thinly and evenly, from bottom to top. Do not roll! After drying, repeat application if necessary. A characteristic whitish effect may appear on surfaces covered with stained lime (please test beforehand to verify).
REPAINTING AND RENOVATING
After drying, the lime coating can be repainted directly with Tockay white lime paints. For lime tinted paints, apply casein primer beforehand. At least two weeks after curing, lime plaster can also be repainted with all other Tockay wall paints; use a suitable primer. Sand saponified lime renderings beforehand until absorbency is restored.
Lime plaster can be tinted with up to 5% Tockay pigments (maximum 50g of pigment per kg of plaster powder):
– Form a paste by mixing the pigment(s) with a little water, then mix this paste with the lime coating that has been previously mixed with water.
To tint, see our Tockay color chart.
Dry and overcoatable after approximately 24 hours per millimeter of thickness, at a temperature of 20°C and a humidity level of approximately 65%. Drying time is longer at lower temperatures.
CLEANING OF TOOLS
Clean with water immediately after use.
