Interior walls leveling compound
Powdery lime based skim compound for thin-layered leveling of interior walls. Used for manual application up to a maximum thickness of 4 mm.
PREPARATION AND APPLICATION
The substrate to which BK-GletEx is applied, must be solid, clean and dry, without loosely bonded parts, grease stains, etc. In case of application to high-quality mineral surfaces as well as to well-set dispersion paints, it is necessary to previously apply BK-Ultra Prime primer, in order to achieve better adhesion of the skim coat. In case of highly absorbent surfaces, impregnation with BK-Nivelator can be performed. In case of peeled off, worn and/or dusty surfaces, all loosely bonded layers must be removed and then impregnated with BK-Penetrat. The preparation of the compound is done by adding the powder in about 36% of water (1.8l of water for 5kg of product, 9l of water for 25kg of product) to achieve a homogeneous mixture, without lumps. Allow the mixture to rest for 10 minutes and stir once more before application. The compound is usually applied in two layers, by hand, with a metal trowel, with a total thickness of up to 4 mm. The second layer is applied after complete drying of the first one, and after each layer the possible folds should be processed with sandpaper, with grain size 180-240 depending on the technique and purpose. See product datasheet for more detailed instructions.
Approximately 1-1. 5 kg/m², depending on the thickness of the application.
