Stipple Coat Lime Preparation

Grab the image to zoom

A pure lime preparation coat with excellent adhesion to difficult historic structures. Suitable for both high and low suction masonry backgrounds. Provides extra adhesion for further coats of Lime Green Duro or Ultra.

If internal or external masonry walls are very smooth or highly porous, then a standard lime base coat may have difficulty sticking to the surface. Lime green Stipple coat will prepare them ready for the next coat of lime plaster or lime render.

Walls and ceilings can then be completed using our finish lime plasters for a high quality surface prior to painting.
Like Ultra and Duro, Stipple Coat is a lime-based product so it allows the walls to breathe and expel any trapped moisture.

Stipple Coat lime preparation can be hand-applied or machine sprayed for faster coverage.
