Application Surfaces

All pre-painted surfaces with floor preparation can be applied to interior surfaces such as concrete, plaster, black plaster, betopan.


The application surface should be free from all kinds of dust, dirt and oil. A clean, dry and solid surface should be obtained after lightly smoothing the blistered and old painted surfaces. If necessary, defects and cracks on the surface should be repaired with Silkcoat Internal Acrylic Putty. Travertino is mixed with 20-25% water until the first layer is flattened and mixed until it becomes homogenous. Travertino is applied to the entire surface with trowel. To make the surface smooth, the first coat is left to dry for 1 day after it has been smoothened with a trowel. Prior to the application of the second layer, the surface is soaked with a roll of water. When the dry surface is obtained, the second layer is again applied to the surface with a trowel. When the second coat surface is about to dry, the patterns are created with the help of the backside of the trowel. After enough lines have been formed, they are again smoothed with the trowel and left to dry for another day. On the third day, The final surface is again wetted with water by means of a roller. Without full drying, Silkcoat Arteco, which is the last layer, is diluted with 25-30% and applied with the help of a special tool. Travertino should be mixed until completely homogenous before use. Dilute Travertino as much as you can on each floor. Since the product is cement based, it can be dried. Ambient and surface temperature should be between + 5ºC and + 35ºC during application and product drying. If applied on very bright and glassy surfaces, a solid surface should be formed by smoothing the surface first to ensure better adhesion.
