Working Time: 1 hour.
Drying Time: 8-12 hours to set, 48-72 hours to fully dry. Varies by air temperature, humidity and surface temperature. Protect the finish from rain and temperatures less than 40°F (5° C) for a minimum of 24 hours.
Application/Storage Temperatures: 50°F (10°C) to 110°F (43°C). Store out of direct sunlight.
General – Air and substrate temperature for application of LaCantera must be 40°F (5°C) or higher and must remain 40°F (5°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 – The substrate must be approved by Master Wall Inc.®, clean, dry, structurally sound and free of efflorescence, oil, grease, form release agents and curing compounds or anything that would affect bond. Painted surfaces are not acceptable and must be removed. Concrete and surfaces should cure for a minimum of 28 days. Stucco should be cured until clean, dry and hard—typically 7-14 days.
Interior drywall should be finished and made ready for paint. Prime surfaces with Sanded Primecoat primer prior to finishing with LaCantera.
Base Coats – Must be flat, dry hard, and free of efflorescence. Master Wall® base coats must cure a minimum of 12 hours before application of LaCantera. Substrates of brick, masonry or concrete should be leveled smooth using either Master Wall base coats or stucco.
Mixing – Thoroughly stir the LaCantera 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. Small amounts of clean, potable water may be added to obtain a workable consistency up to a maximum of 12 ounces (0.4L). To avoid color inconsistencies only use product with the same amount of water and batch numbers for a section or elevation.
Application – Techniques can vary. Apply the LaCantera Finish to the clean, dry and cured base coat or substrate with a stainless steel trowel about 1/16″ to 1/8″ (1.6-3.2mm) thick. Trowel finish uniformly onto the wall surface. Let take up to a firm set, firm enough that it can be cleaned with a sponge float without removing the finish entirely. Lightly float with a dampened sponge float eliminate trowel marks and irregularities and expose the mica chips. Clean the float often during this process, making several passes to produce the final texture and appearance.
Clean Up – Tools and equipment can be cleaned with soapy water while the finish coat is still wet.
For Professional Results
Apply finish coats away from direct sunlight.
Surfaces exposed to the weather must be sloped (6:12 minimum).
Finishes are intended for the listed approved substrates and should not be applied directly to gypsum board or insulation board products except as noted above.
