Application Specifications

  1. Preparation - Completely prepare total job by hanging clean plastic wall sheets throughout all rooms to be sprayed.  Some new clean cloth sheets to be kept separate and used only for covering T.V, stereo beds, and any expensive furniture, etc., before wall sheets go up.  All cloth ground sheets to be laid out over floor area.  Mark out all rooms on scotias leaving 4-6mm gap between ceiling and masking tape to allow for texture.  This leaves a clean edge when removing tape.
  2. Sealcoat - After all masking and covering is complete, apply one coat of Spraytex Alkyd Adhesive Sealer (oil based) to all ceilings.  New Gib-board, fibrous plastered ceilings and all existing ceilings must be sealed to ensure adhesion and prevent any bleed through of stains or uneven drying of texture.
  3. Damaged Surfaces - Remove any loose flaky paint, etc.  Replace loose galvanised nails and nail loose sheets.  Fill all cracks and holes using resin mortar.  Any joints or long cracks should be cleaned and the gap widened.  Then apply one coat of undiluted concentrated sealer, then trowel on a coat of resin mortar.  Trowel in 48mm fibreglass tape into joints while resin mortar is wet.  Allow to dry, then apply Spraytex Sealer over joints and total ceiling area.
  4. Spraying - After sealing and all preparation, apply Spraytex Ceiling Spray to a thickness of texture required.
  5. Glitter - Immediately apply glitter to each room before ceiling teture has dried to ensure proper adhesion of glitter, (silver or gold can be used or a mix of both).  It is  recommended to use more silver than gold when blending together for best results.
  6. Completion - Remove all masking paper carefully leaving straight edge, for best results remove paper as each room is completed and place into old used texture bags, then fold up floor sheets and vacuum all floors if needed.
