Febond Blue Grit 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.


Febond Blue Grit 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.

Febond Blue Grit FAQ

What is bonding plaster?

Bonding plaster is used an undercoat on walls, preparing them for plastering or other substrates to be applied on top. It is a form of bonding plaster and provides top coats with a suitable surface for application.

Can I use bonding plaster to fill holes?

While bonding plaster can be used to fill holes, the drying time may be significantly longer, depending on the size of the hole and the amount of Febond Blue Grit required to fill it.

Can you tile on bonding plaster?

Before you begin tiling your wall, you’ll first need to plaster it. It provides the undercoat for the plaster to be applied and is therefore unsuitable for direct tiling.

What is the drying time of Febond Blue Grit?

Generally, it is between 6hrs-24hrs, but this can be extended due to low room temperatures.


Plastering on Febond Blue Grit

A perfect finish while plastering is something that can only be achieved with the correct surface preparation.

The commonly used preparation is to prime the surface with a PVA such as Febond PVA and then apply the plaster whilst still tacky. This can prove to be tricky to time correctly. On smooth, non-porous substrates such as glazed tiles and concrete, further preparation is needed as the surfaces required a key for the plaster to adhere to. This can be done in several ways including using meshing, abrading the surface or adding sand to the PVA mix, all of which can be incredibly messy and time consuming.

There are a wide range of plaster bonding agents which can speed up the preparation time and provide the a key to all surfaces. Products such as Febond Blue Grit are specifically designed to provide an improved key to surfaces including plaster, concrete, painted surfaces and glazed tiles by incorporating a fine aggregate into the mix, whilst also reducing suction on highly porous substrates such as blockwork.

Febond PVA

Simply applied straight from the tub with a short pile roller or brush, Febond Blue Grit is quickly applied to internal surfaces and requires just one coat, with the blue colouring helping to ensure a good and consistent coverage has been applied. It is often said that the plaster on top is only as strong as the bonding agent beneath so a good coverage is essential to ensure no weak spots are found once the plaster is applied.

Another benefit of Febond Blue Grit is that it is plastered over once dry, usually after around 6 hours, taking the guesswork out of drying times associated with traditional PVA methods.

These types of products are ideal for repair, maintenance and improvement projects where difficult surfaces are likely to be encountered and are a perfect solution in tiled bathroom or kitchen areas where the removing of old tiles could cause costly damage to the existing wall behind. Having the option of leaving these tiles in place is a solution which is welcomed by many in the trade however it should be remembered that tiles cannot be directly applied to the bonding agent so it is essential that the surface is skimmed before any further work takes place.

With the popularity of bonding agents increasing, there’s now no excuse for anything but perfect plastering!
