Fine bio-ecological plaster for smooth & marble-like finishes.

“Remembrances of the Renaissance age seen through the pulse of a marble vein”

Description

Ready to use fine bio-ecological lime plaster in paste used to obtain smooth, high-sheen marble-like finishes typical of the reinassance period.

Composition

Cream of slaked lime aged 48 months- sifted through a mesh of 900 microstitches per cmq, composed of selected micro-marble sands, natural resins, natural binders, and natural earth colorants.

Characteristics

It is a purely bio-ecological mineral product with a high aesthetical effect, stable while beautifying with age, and a highly breathable plaster that resists mildews, molds, and bacterium while obtaining a high adhesive capacity.

Use

Marmocalce can be used indoor and outdoor on both old (restoration) and new structures (bio architecture) in order to obtain smooth and reflective or semi-reflective finishes that represent the illustrious, bold look of marble that doesn’t fade through aging.

Application

Mix the product well in a bucket always using a stainless steel spatula or stainless steel mixing tool, then apply it with a stainless steel american trowel. Upon applying the first layer, be careful not to burnish by over-passing already applied areas with the trowel. When the first coat is completely dry, go on with applying the second coat. The number of coats will be decided by the artisan according to the tone, depth, dimensional character, and richness of the color he wants to achieve in order to obtain the desired aesthetical effect. The final burnishing for a normal or mirror-like sheen shall be obtained by passing over the Marmocalce repeatedly with the same stainless steel trowel used for the application. First and foremost before this final process the plaster should be not completely dry but also not humid or damp as the plaster can pull or flake-off when attempting to burnish.

Surface

Being Marmocalce an endurable and everlasting finish, it requires that the support’s coat must be well aged and solid.
For a proper Marmocalce application on new or old walls with a troweled or floated finish it is suggested to apply one or more coats of Rasocalce to level the wall in order to attain an uniformed absorption which leads to a minor cosumption of the product and beautiful aesthetical effects.
