GIORGIO GRAESAN Muro Naturale
GIORGIO GRAESAN Muro Naturale lime plaster looks like a stone wall. It contains Mica flakes which reflect and play with light. It goes well with plants and natural decor.
Suitable: for all interior walls, including areas subject to moisture and humidity such as bathrooms and laundries.
Appearance: Muro can be finished smooth or left with some texture. The marble Mica flakes in it create a stone like texture and catch light in a natural way. It can be have a low or high polish and can be left natural, or waxed, or finished with Vetro for waterproofing quality. Extra Mica flakes in bronze or black can be added for even more effect. This is called Muro Plus.
Colours: the natural colour is a soft white. Muro is tinted to a large range of colours with liquid tints. The Muro Catalogue contains a colour chart to view these colours in your home. These can be returned for a full refund when you have finished using them.
VOC: zero. However protection should be worn when mixing and applying as lime is highly alkaline.
Odour: is nil
Durability: lime is naturally resistant to mould and bacteria and creates a hard durable surface. However all decorative finishes are works of art that require a little care to maintain them.
Water resistance: excellent
Application: is with a Stainless Steel trowel approximately 2ml thick in one coat. After approximately 15 - 20 mins drying it is worked with a trowel and water spray to get the desired finish, and then buffed with a mitt to get the final sheen and reveal the Mica flakes. Tint should be mixed into the product and left to rest for a minimum of 12 hours before using the product. Apply in temperatures above 5'C and below 35'C. Final polishing of the wax to a high sheen can be done with a synthetic painting mitt.
GIORGIO GRAESAN recommends that all of their lime plasters are applied only by highly skilled and licensed tradespeople with extensive experience in these products. It is the responsibility of the applicator to understand the application method and the procedure involved, in order to obtain a satisfactory outcome.
