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.  Mask out all rooms on scotias leaving 4-6mm gap between ceilings and masking tape to allow for texture, thus leaving a clean edge when removing tape.
  2. Sealcoat - After all masking and covering is complete, apply one coat of Alkyd Sealer (oil based) to all ceilings.  For concrete ceilings, use Strongwall Acrylic Sealer,  New Gib-board, fibrous plastered ceilings and all existing ceilings must be sealed to ensure adhesion and prevent uneven drying of teture.
  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 fibreglass tape into joints while resin mortar is wet.  Allow to dry, then apply Alkyd Sealer over joints and total ceiling areas.  After sealing and all preparation, apply two coats of Spraytex Washable to a thickness of texture required.
  4. Completion - Remove all masking paper carefully leaving clean straight edges.  For best results, remove paper as each room is completed.
