Systems for applying and one-coat finishing scraper

There are numerous finishes for one-coat mortars, however, the scraped finish, also called guilloche engraving, is the most commonly used finish for façade coatings, perhaps because it looks very like the traditional painted rendering.

 For a highly decorative scraped finish that is impermeable to rain water and permeable to water vapor, and available in a wide variety of colour, use: REVAT® RASPADO or REVAT® SUPRA.

PREPARING THE SUPPORT

The substrate must be perfectly set, resistant and free from dust and grease.

Remove degraded or damaged parts.

In hot weather or very absorbent supports, it is advisable to moisten it in advance.

On smooth or non-absorbent concrete supports, the application of PROPAM® FIX as a bridge.

APPLICATION

After manually or mechanically kneading the monolayer mortar, using the same proportion of water between kneading, allow the pasta to stand for about 5 minutes.

Extend the paste on the support with trowel or with a projection machine.

Regularize the desired thickness and after 2 to 5 hours, depending on the support and the ambient conditions, we can start the scraped finish. In the case of working with substrates of very different water absorption it is preferable to apply a first layer of about 5 mm as a primer.

The minimum thickness is given by the thickness of the jaws and is 10 mm, with an average thickness of 12 mm being recommended.

After the indicated time scrape the surface with a trowel, being the optimum moment when there is no material stuck between the tines. To avoid changes in tone or texture it is advisable to perform the scraping in the same direction and over the entire surface available to finish. Finally, after a few days the remains of surplus material are brushed.

Recommendations

  • Los soportes habituales de aplicación son: ladrillo cerámico, termoarcilla, bloque de hormigón, enfoscados de cemento y hormigón.
  • No aplicar con insolación directa o fuerte viento.
  • No aplicar con riesgo de lluvias o heladas.
  • Aplicar entre +5ºC y 35ºC de temperatura.
  • No aplicar en zonas sumergidas en agua.
  • No aplicar en superficies con un ángulo inferior al 10%.
  • Proteger las partes bajas de los edificios mediante zócalos.
  • Durante la aplicación proteger las zonas expuestas bajo la acción de la lluvia.

Technical mortars

Build a barbacue

Making barbecues, chimneys, ovens, etc., requires using specific materials that withstand the extreme conditions to which they are going to be exposed (high temperatures, expansions and contractions, etc.). The solution lies in using PROPAM® REFRACTARIO, a refractory mortar which, due to its technical characteristics, is suitable for coating walls and making joints that are subject to environments in contact with fire or high temperatures. The abrupt changes in temperature that occur when lighting barbecues, fireplaces, ovens, etc., produce dilations. When turning off facilities, contraction movements in the materials used are produced. These changes can produce cracks and even lead to loosening, if the materials used for its...

Build a wall with glass blocks

A glass block is a very useful material both in construction, decoration and interior decoration, as it can be used to separate different ambiances, showers, outside walls, or simply as decoration. It is formed by two pieces of molded glass, which are welded at a very high temperature, to create a vacuum air chamber between the two pieces. This air chamber confers the capacity of thermal-acoustic insulation. Once placed provides highly decorative finishes, given the wide range of formats and colors.

Fixing glass wool in an enclosure chamber

The need to obtain efficient thermal insulation and even more so since the TBC came into force a few years ago, has lead the construction industry to develop materials like glass wool, for use as thermal insulant and acoustic absorbent in enclosure walls inresidential, commercial, industrial and service buildings. For its correct placement it is necessary to use a mortar that allows the waterproofing of the enclosure against water that can penetrate from the outside, without forming a vapor barrier.
