Areas of use
Febond Blue Grit is most often used as a bonding coat for walls, prior to plastering. For those looking to apply difficult substrates to their walls such as glass, ceramic tiles, MR plasterboard or pre-cast concrete, Febond Blue Grit effectively prepares the surface of the wall for the plaster application.
Directions of use
Before use, the ambient and surface temperature needs to be above 5°C. Once achieved, stir the substrate well and apply using a short pile roller or brush directly to the wall. With Febond Blue Grit, you’ll only need 1 even coat to get the desired results. Allow the coating to dry thoroughly before applying plaster. This will usually take a minimum of 24 hours, however drying time can be significantly extended at low temperatures.
In the event any Febond Blue Grit splashes onto adjacent surfaces, remove immediately with warm soapy water.
