New Product – Savannah Finish
New Savannah Finish replaces our Level Cote and Level Cote VPlaster finishes. Suitable for both interior and exterior use, Savannah easily creates unique tonal qualities with two thin coats. Savannah can be topcoated with our Metallic Cote, Clearshield or Vintique to create custom accents.
Attached is the current data sheet. Here’s the link to the web page with videos and photos.
We’ve also updated our Metallic Cote finish to reflect the use of Savannah as the leveling coat here.
Painted Surfaces Technical Bulletin
Bonding to a painted surface is complicated. Most manufacturers shy away from making any recommendations for painted surfaces while others offer magic bonding agents while noting that the warranty ends where the paint begins.
The concern is that there are so many types and qualities of paints that can be applied to a surface it’s near impossible to make generalized recommendations and no, manufacturers aren’t going to warrant the paint bond. So is there a way to check the paint bond and quality before you begin any application?
This bulletin outlines a recommended technique for checking bond quality, paint type and checking adhesion of Master Wall products. It’s comprehensive but all the testing isn’t sophisticated and is easy to understand. There’s a checklist at the end so you can perform the tests and send them to us for commentary.

Rollershield Drainage EIFS approved over PROSOCO R-Guard® Products
Master Wall Inc. ® is pleased to announce that our Rollershield Drainage EIFS is now approved over PROSOCO R-Guard® Cat 5® and Spray Wrap MVP products. The PROSOCO products are used in lieu of our Rollershield LAB product but the Master Wall® products are warranted for the Rollershield 10-year term.
This allows architects more latitude when specifying air and water barrier products with EIFS and the collaboration is unprecedented in our industry. Applications are subject to the following limitations and clarifications:
• For water barrier applications, strictly follow PROSOCO application instructions and code report limitations.
• Product support will be addressed by PROSOCO for the air/Water Barriers and Master Wall Inc. for the EIFS.
• The maximum exposure time for the Air/Water Barrier is 30 days for Rollershield Drainage EIFS installations.
• The Air/Water Barrier and EIFS would typically be submitted individually to the architect.
