PREPARATION OF SUPPORT
The support must be completely hardened and resistant enough. The surface must be perfectly levelled, thoroughly clean, dry, without greases, oils, debris or detaching parts or other materials that may compromise the product adhesion.
In case of hydro-cleaning, wait for the complete drying of the support.
If the surface is crumbly in its entirety, totally scrape it until obtaining good support; restore lesions and damaged parts with suitable mortar.
Diathonite Cork Render adheres to different kind of supports without the need of a primer; it is anyway recommended to perform a test in order to verify the adhesion or the need to use a primer.
