For interiors and exteriors on rendered walls, plasters, plasterboards, etc., appropriately treated.
In the preparation of either new or old painted walls, apply one coat of Adifix primer thinned as recommended. Allow to dry then, apply a basecoat of Fondo Universale thinned 20-30% water.
Preparing the required color
Travertinus in powder form: Mix the powder with about 40-45% of water using a low speed mixer. After having thoroughly mixed the product, let the material sit for approximately 15 minutes before use. The mixed product can be used in 4 h. Travertinus P is supplied in paste form, ready to use. Coloring: Travertinus is supplied and can be used white or it can be colored and protected by applying one or two top coats of Velé to give a soft antique effect. It is also possible to tint the paste itself with the use of Tinter series DTX.
Apply your first coat of Travertinus in a uniform layer with a stainless steel trowel to a thickness of about 2mm. After about 12 hours apply a second coat of Travertinus in the same way and before it begins to dry, run a stainless steel spatula held perpendicular at 90° across the surface forming the desired scratch marks. At this point you can create a block effect. Finally trowel the entire surface well using good pressure on the trowel to compact and burnish the coating. In case the applied product tends to dry, you can wet the wall to reactivate it and increase the workability. Interiors: Travertinus can be left as is or can be protected and
decorated with Velé clear or colored, thinned 30-40% water and applied by brush. Exterior: Travertinus must always be sealed and protected with Velé clear or colored and diluted thinned 30-40% water.
