Provide temporary protection to protect the wall system from damage until permanent flashings, caps and sealants are installed. Store materials within prescribed temperature limits and out of direct sun-light. High temperatures will reduce working times, Low temperatures and/or high humidity and pigment loading will extend working, set and dry times.
After the newly-applied finish has dried, wipe the surface with a clean damp rag to eliminate any dust. Allow the surface to dry.
Diamond Cote is applied using either a sponge, stainless steel Japanese Trowel or a putty knife. It cannot be rolled, brushed, or sprayed on. For sponge application dip the sponge into the Diamond Cote and apply to the finish, maintaining a wet surface while working the product into a small area. Hold the trowel at a 60° angle and scrape a very thin layer of the topcoat onto the dry Venetian Plaster finish. Scrape off any excess using a clean trowel and let this coat dry. This application will slightly darken the color and will dry to a satin sheen.
Tools and equipment can be cleaned with soapy water while the sealer is still wet.
