Basecoat plaster for application to concrete or plasterboard
CreteStone is a vermiculited, retarded hemihydrate Gypsum plaster and a finishing plaster for application to concrete soffits, concrete blocks and Rhinoboard. For internal use only.
CreteStone to concrete surfaces.
No hacking or slushing required on rough concrete surfaces. When steel shuttering or grease has been used, or proprietary compounds have been mixed with concrete, surface should be cleaned thoroughly. Use a wire brush to remove loose particles. Grease or oil is always detrimental to the bond of plastering material. Therefore, scrub concrete surfaces with cleansing agent to remove grease or oil. Rinse with copious amounts of water till entirely clean. Apply Grippon plaster bonding liquid using a brush or roller. While still wet and tacky, follow with thin, tight application of CreteStone. Using steel trowel, follow with filler coat to maximum 6mm thickness, press CreteStone into concrete surface. Pressure is essential to remove air that could compromise the bond. Rule off and straighten plaster with feathered or straight edge. Apply additional CreteStone to hollows between feathered edge and surface and rule off again. As CreteStone stiffens, temper surface with water on brush. Trowel to a smooth finish.
2. Application to Rhinoboard
Apply CreteStone neatly to not more than 6mm as follows: Apply thin, tight coat well onto Rhinoboard, into wire scrim or RhinoTape at joints. Follow with filler coat to maximum 6mm using steel trowel. Pressure is essential to remove air that could compromise the bond. Rule off and straighten plaster with feathered or straight edge. Apply additional CreteStone to hollows between feathered edge and surface and rule off again. As CreteStone stiffens, temper surface with water on brush. Trowel to a smooth finish.
3. Covering Capacity
Applied 6mm thick the coverage will be approximately 11,5m2/40kg.
Check surface is set hard, dry and dust-free before decorating. Do not sandpaper CreteStone. Seal surfaces with oil or solvent based sealer. Allow 24 hours to dry. Apply 2 coats paint as required.
NB: Expoxy paints not to be applied onto CreteStone.
A quick setting drywall joint filler for patching, bedding and finishing. This product has been developed specifically to assist the drywall contractor to complete the jointing on Drywall jobs within one day. Packed in 10 kg and 20 kg bags.
It is designed as a filler for plasterboard systems but can also be used as an interior crack filler and for filling rough plaster surfaces prior to painting.
- A 20 kg bag should be sufficient to finish completely approximately 35 – 40 m of joint.
- A 10 kg bag should be sufficient to finish completely approx. 17,5 – 20 m of joint.
RHINOGLIDE is applied using the same tools and procedure as described in the Rhino Drywall Hand Jointing Application data sheet.
A Lightweight Basecoat and Finishing Plaster
RHINOLITE is a lightweight retarded hemihydrate gypsum plaster, specially manufactured as a combined basecoat and finishing plaster for internal application onto brickwork, concrete block, concrete and Rhinoboard, and as a finishing plaster onto sand cement basecoats.
RHINOLITE two-in-one plaster is suitable for providing:
- a highly polished smooth surface,
- a brush finish, or
- a textured finish, and should be used neat, with the addition of clean water only. The plaster has a setting time of approximately 60 minutes.
As in good building practice, roof, windows and doors should be installed before plastering with RHINOLITE. (To help prevent dry-outs).
RHINOLITE should not be used in areas where walls are washed with hosepipes, in showers or in industrial type kitchens.
RHINOLITE LIST OF BENEFITS
- Superior smooth finish
Can be floated up to 1 hour after application.
Sand/cement weight +- 22 kg/m2 at 12 mm, RhinoLite weighs +- 9 kg/m2. Results in less effort/m2.
Reduction in transport costs to site.
Reduction in on-site labour, particularly in highrise (the weight to be moved around the site or up to various floors has been halved).
Much more acceptable to artisans as it is easier and lighter to work with.
Premixed in bags – just add water.
Can be applied much quicker, estimates at the moment range from 25% to 50% faster than sand/cement.
Unskilled labour reduced due to easier mixing of product.
Overheads reduced because contracts completed quicker.
Extra profits obtained because same number of crews produce more work per annum.
The shortage of skilled plasterers becomes less of a problem because of substantial increase in productivity.
Sets and dries faster – you paint sooner.
- Cleaner product
Easier to keep the site clean.
Better working conditions due to cleaner site.
Savings – less wastage.
Savings – less cleaning up.
Product (packed in 10 kg and 40 kg bags) gives easier stock control.
- Better performance
Less shrinkage cracks.
Better adhesion to lintels and concrete when used with GRIPPON due to special adhesive in plaster.
Used as a base coat it eliminates the bond problems sometimes obtained on 2 coat work due to the shrinkage of fatty/poor quality sands.
Does not shatter or crack when nails are driven into it.
