Remove loose sand particles, dust, dirt, efflorescence or any other foreign material from the plastered surface with medium size emery paper or steel trowel. Pour sufficient amount of clean potable water to neutralize the suction of the background. Allow the free water to completely evaporate from the surface before the application of putty- Dicofix 510.
Dicofix 510 is in dry powder form and has to be mixed with water before the application. Always place some water in the bucket and then add powdered dry mix material into it. Mix the material with electrical stirrer to homogeneous paste by adding remaining quantity of water. Let the mixed material stand for 10-15 minutes and again mix it without adding any extra quantity of water.
Wall Putty is applied with the help of special steel trowel or putty blade. Apply first coat of putty on the prepared surface to fill the pores and hairline cracks of plaster. The drying time of first coat is generally 3 hours. But it depends on the weather conditions and the thickness of the coat. Apply second coat of putty smoothly to cover the entire surface.
The total thickness of the putty should not exceed 1.5 mm. White Portland cement based putty has self-curing properties therefore water curing is not required. But the care should be taken to avoid fast drying of putty under extreme dry weather conditions
After three days when the putty surface becomes completely dry and glossy, rub the surface if required with fine water proofing emery paper to remove the marks of putty blade. Wipe off the loose dust with a moist cloth. Now the surface is ready for applying any type of paint on it.
