HOW SHOULD WE WORK WITH FUGA & FINIS
Pre-treatment of substrate: Installation of plasterboards has to be completed ensuring their stability, and the result of this the substrate has to be a clean, dry and even.
Mixing: After opening the package, the contents should be mixed with a mechanical mixer. If necessary, the mixture can be diluted: for manual application with approx. 200ml of water per 20kg of product or machine applied with approx. 400ml of water per 20kg of product, to obtain the desired consistency.
Machine spray application:
Spray horizontally standing 20-30 cm from the substrate. Recommended size of the nozzles is 527 to 531, power about 100 Bars. Spraying machine must be equipped with stainless steel balls.
Application for manual jointing of plasterboards:
Place enough quantity of the mixture, so as to fill the joint completely, and then press well in order to ensure tight filling. Then put the joint tape by pressing it to the base with a joint-knife.
Lay a second layer of the jointing compound on the joint tape. It is important to confine the skim coat to the area of the joint itself and to avoid moving outside of it. Wait again for 24 hours until the material is completely dry!
Lay a third adjusting layer of jointing mixture which aims to make a smooth transition between the zone of the joint and the plasterboard. Skim this layer at a distance of 50- 60 mm from the end of the joint.
Final action: To achieve excellent result, as a final step it is advisable complete plastering of the boards.
A layer with a thickness of 1 (Q3) to 3 mm (Q4) has to be applied. Movement of the plastering trowel has to be from the bottom upwards, with an inclination of around 30% in relation to the base. Start leveling the wall by circular movements only in one direction (or only to the left or to the right, in no case in a full circle).
Smooth all concavities and holes with one or two additional movements. If necessary, polish the layer with a fine sandpaper after hardening. Polish protruding bumps carefully, and fill concave zones with a joint-knife and ready for use mixture, and repeat the procedure.
- It is mandatory to use perfectly clean instruments without traces of rust.
- Do not add products other than water.
