Surface preparation

Application

SOUS COUCHE POUR CHAUX EXTRA lime primer must be thinned with water, adding approximately 50% water (2 volumes of SOUS COUCHE POUR CHAUX EXTRA lime primer for 1 volume of water) according to the porosity of the surface. Mix well before application and continually mix during use to ensure the aggregate remains in suspension.

SOUS COUCHE POUR CHAUX EXTRA lime primer is best applied with a brush, rather than a rolled or sprayed. Apply in wide strokes in a criss-cross motion while not overbrushing. The object is to apply an even coat of aggregate. The dried finish should feel like sandpaper, with the texture evenly distributed, and no bald spots. Only one coat is needed if applied properly.

If applying Sous Couche pour chaux Extra lime primer to a non-porous surface, then thin with less water for better adhesion.
