General—Air and substrate temperature for application of Metallic Cote must be 50°F (10°C) or higher and must remain 50°F (10°C) or higher for a minimum of 24 hours. Working and drying times are based upon normal room temperature conditions and will vary with temperature and humidity.
Preparation – Apply selected finish texture, allow finishes to set a minimum of 24 hours, under room temperature conditions, longer if temperatures are lower or humidity is higher. Surface must be clean, dry, structurally sound and free of efflorescence, oil, grease, form release agents and curing compounds or anything that would affect bond.
Mixing—Thoroughly stir the Metallic Cote Finish using a heavy duty 1/2″ (12.7 mm) drill at 400-500 rpm and a paddle similar to a Wind-lock B-MTW mixer taking care not to add air to the coating. Small amounts of clean, potable water may be added to obtain a workable consistency up to a maximum of 6 ounces (0.2L) per gallon as needed to obtain the desired consistently. To avoid color inconsistencies only use product with the same batch numbers for a section or elevation and box pails.
Application—The application of Metallic Cote requires a skilled artisan applicator familiar with the application of translucent coatings and advanced painting and/or spraying skills. Master Wall suggests the following techniques as a starting point:
Over Superior Finishes – For a metallic or pearlescent look over textured finish apply Metallic Cote finish using a roller or spray technique. Spray technique is preferred. Apply 2-coats in thin applications of 3 mils each, backroll each section in one direction taking care to eliminate lap marks. Keep roller fully loaded. Limit use of a brush to areas that can’t be rolled.
Semi-Smooth Look – Level panels with a thin layer of Plasterflex, allow to set up, then follow with a second layer of Plasterflex. After firm set float with a large venetian plaster float to achieve a smooth surface. Allow to dry and sand as needed with 100 grit sandpaper attached to a long board for consistent leveling. Primecoat may be spray applied to the surface if needed (optional). Spray apply two coats of Master Wall Metallic Cote in thin applications of 3 mils each.
Smooth Look – Level panels with a thin layers of Savannah following the application instructions. Spray apply two coats of Master Wall Metallic Cote in thin applications of 3 mils each.
Clean Up—Tools and equipment can be cleaned with soapy water while the coating is still wet.

- Surfaces exposed to the weather must be sloped (6:12 minimum).
- For best results limit panel size to a maximum of 5’x5′ (1.5m 2).
- Avoid dark colors over EIFS.
