  1. Prepare the area you wish to plaster -Chip lose plaster away from the wall, exposing the brickwork. Remove any loose plaster and any old mortar -Spray apply a level and substantial layer of a mortar from group CSIII In the case of newly built and brick walls spray the whole area, for old buildings of natural stones spray in dollops covering 50 – 70 percent of the surface
  2. Mix the plasterApplying by hand: mix the entire contents of a sack with around 15 litres of clean water in a compulsory mixer or a cement mixer. Mix for a maximum of around 5 minutes. Do not exceed this mixing time – Applying mechanically: Commercially available plaster machines with a setting for insulation plaster, or a special Klimasan mixer coil are suitable. Get the required mixing coils from manufacturers or ask us
  3. Ensure the correct consistency has been achieved Klimasan-Perlit is at the right consistency if the mixed plaster is creamy and sticks to your trowel. It often appears to be too dry. Do not, under any circumstances, blend too much water into it – as with traditional mortars or plasters
  4. Trowel up the plaster – First, dampen the area you wish to plaster well Apply Klimasan Perlit in the same way as traditional plasters – in a creamy state, at least 20 mm thick, from top to bottom. – With plaster of over 30mm total thickness apply Klimasan-Perlit in wet layers (max 30mm every layer) in multiple passes. Let every layer set before you apply the next – The entire application time amounts to around 4 hours
  5. Level the plaster – Smooth over the Klimasan-Perlit plaster with a well dampened aluminium plaster trowel -Plaster trowels made from synthetic materials are not as suitable. Under no circumstances use a dry plasterer’s float
  6. Respect the minimum setting time before continuing to work – For a brick wall background around 1 hour – Natural stone around 1 to 2/3 hours – Concrete around 5 hours Klimasan-Perlit must dry out slowly. Therefore, spray the plastered surface lightly with water under intensive sun or wind which dries it out quickly
  7. Level the final layer – Smooth over the top coat evenly and sand this flat with a lattice plane after it has set -You can also carefully rub down (but do not try to rub it completely smooth as you would with a conventional plaster and a sponge plane) Klimasan-Perlit under running water with a sponge 8. Select the right finishing plaster -As a finishing plaster for Klimasan-Perlit use a breathable pure mineral plaster -Preferably with a chalk base in any desired grain size -Take note of requirements of regulation EN998-1 (European specification regarding masonry mortars) -Use for example lime plaster indoors to create flat surfaces – Generally applies to Klimasan-Perlit T1-CS, I, W0 – Outdoor top coat CS, I – Inner layer CS, I
