Resene Resitex Plastercote - elastomeric textured coating

Resene Resitex Plastercote is an elastomeric waterborne specialist finish perfect for creating a Mediterranean style sponge finish yet tough enough to withstand harsh environments. Based on tough acrylic elastomers that have an excellent memory of their original shape when distorted, Resene Resitex Plastercote is capable of bridging minor cracks.

Resene Resitex Plastercote may be applied to concrete, leaking blockwork, paperfaced plasterboard, fibrous and solid plaster, old or powdery cementitious surfaces and steel. The success of this coating is that it not only provides the freedom to achieve a diverse range of finishes, it also protects against structures that will flex and develop minor cracks. Resene Resitex Plastercote may be applied to reproduce a sponge plaster finish associated with Mediterranean architecture through to a scratch plaster finish (worm tracks) depending on application technique (spray or trowel), aggregate size and spreading rate.

Product Data Sheet: D70

Specify: One-Line Specification section 20e/i

Specifying tips:
In all cases, a standard panel should first be prepared by the applicator and approved by clients/specifiers. This standard should be used to ensure the texture achieved is to the agreed panel.

Resene Limelock (see Data Sheet D809) is a preparatory coating designed to cure and seal cementitious surfaces by retaining moisture necessary to achieve cure and trapping free lime, minimising downtime between the completion of plastering and commencement of painting.
