Coloured acrylic resin-based base paint in water dispersion for filling and evening out surfaces. Quarzolite Base Coat is a coloured base product made from acrylic resin in water dispersion, micro-granular quartz and selected aggregates which, once applied, evens out the absorbency of the substrate and promotes bonding of successive coats of paint and thick dressing materials from the Quarzolite range. Quarzolite Base Coat is used to prepare cementitious surfaces before applying a coat of coloured finish, to even out the absorbency of the substrate and to promote a good bond. Quarzolite Base Coat may be used to even out the surface, to form a more uniform finish and to cover small imperfections. If applied in white or in a colour similar to that of the final coat, it is particularly useful to help integration of the coloured finishing cycle, when bright colours which only partially cover the surface are used. Surfaces treated with Quarzolite Base Coat have a uniformly rough finish, which makes it easier to apply layered dressing materials, particularly when applied by trowel. This results in a more even distribution of the dressing material over the entire surface. Quarzolite Base Coat is available in a wide range of colours, created using the ColorMap® automatic tinting system.
Consumption 0.4-0.5 kg/m2 per coat. Consumption is heavily influenced by the roughness of the substrate and by imperfections on the surface, and according to the application technique used.
