As the name implies, this range of Unitex Textured Finishes is designed for trowel application. The products in the Uni-Trowel Décor™ range are applied as a single coat, with the exception of the finer finishes (146 and 333) which due to substrate and or weather conditions, may require an additional wet on wet coat.  Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are acrylic-bound textured coatings designed for decorating interior and exterior walls. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are suitable for use over surfaces prepared with Render from the Unitex Specialty Renders range. A one coat application offers a long life heavy duty coating. Fine texture coats, i.e. Unitex 146, may require wet on wet two coats. The majority of our Finishes are ready-to-use, water-based products. Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are ideal for commercial and residential exterior walls. Due to the strong binding power of the acrylic, an impact-resistant coating results.  The surface prevents scuffing and is able to withstand hard knocks. Uni-Trowel Décor range are available pre-coloured in 15ltr pails, they contain quality graded fine mineral components and aggregates, together with non-absorbent extenders bound by a well-proven acrylic co-polymer. Coverage rates vary considerably with the surface condition and absorption effect. Typical coverage rates are 6 -10m² per pail. There are several grades of Uni-Trowel Décor.

 

Biological Resistance
Resistance to attack from bacteria and fungi is provided. This product being a water based acrylic system offers safe handling and low toxicity properties. Dirt, grime and dust on the surface of coatings will act as seed beds for bacterial attack, therefore cleaning and maintenance of your coating is essential to hinder bacterial and fungal attack.

 

Fire Resistance The full Unitex coating system when subjected to the Early Fire Hazard Tests – Australian Standard AS1530.3:1999 meets the strictest standards.

 

Water Resistance
The coating, even at exceptionally high build, is formulated with a water vapour permeability factor to allow water vapour from the substrate to leave unhindered and to rainproof the exterior. Rising damp and elevated levels of moisture in the substrate will damage, and possibly delaminate, the surface coating. Please ensure that damp coursing the substrate is in place and prior test moisture content with a moisture meter (maximum 12% WME is allowed) (Builder responsibility).

 

Colour
The pigmentation is completely integrated during the manufacturing process, which means colour through the entire film thickness. Applied Finishes are available in a practically unlimited range of full colour to pastel shades. Please contact Unitex for the full range of colours available.
Note: Some deep tones cannot be supplied in applied finishes. Contact Unitex for your specific solution. All colours will fade to some degree with time in exterior systems. Do not apply pigmented texture coats over fresh and or not fully cured renders as efflorescent damage (white blotching) may occur. Each pail has a label with the unique code identifying the particular texture type, colour and batch number. This coding ensures that if you require additional product (say to finish off a job), Unitex can match the texture and colour to the original. Note: Conditions on site may change and therefore colour outcome may be different when applied under varying weather conditions.  It is advisable always order 1 or 2 more pails than are required for the job. The pails have a strong sealed lid to prevent spillage if they should tip over before opening. Even after opening the lid still fits tightly enough when re-sealing to prevent contamination of the remaining product. The product must be protected from heat and cold during transit and storage.

 

Application Details
A minimum of 72 hours, under ideal temperate conditions, is required for through-dry (and cure) of the render, when the surface is trough dry the Unitex Textured Finish coat may be applied. Dry is measured to be less than 12% WME (Wood Moisture Equivalent) where measured on a Protimeter® Moisture Meter. The substrate must be clean before applying the Finish coat. Any crumbling, loose or damaged substrate render must be removed and the surface patched and made good prior to coating. All surfaces must be free of grease, oils, dirt and dust. Pre-painted surfaces must have flaking paint wire brushed back to a sound substrate. Unitex recommends a base coat of a pigmented Unitex Uni-Substrate Sealer (2 coats) over old renders prior to application of the surface finishes. If multi coats are desired then a minimum of 72 hours between each coat is required. All Unitex Applied Texture Finishes are designed to overcoat Unitex Render from our specialty render range. See Unitex Renders sections for information on suitable base render to use. Application should not be carried out under excessively cold conditions (below 7 °C) or in hot windy conditions (above 32°C).

 

Site
Unitex strongly advises sign off on all coating systems. Always provide the Builder and Designer with a site texture sample of minimum 2m², finish and colour for written approval nominated the Unitex specified system.
