FX Flexible Stucco(Interior only)
An experienced applicator is highly recommended for this product.
Product Description
FX Flexible Stucco is a tintable acrylic plaster coating that replicates the lime and ground marble ‘Stucco Veneziano’
popularised in Italy during the Renaissance. Its highly textured, mirror finish is achieved using a trowel application and
inbuilt flexibility makes it particularly suited to producing an elegant, sophisticated finish on many interior surfaces,
including cement render. This is a white-base, high-coverage product.

Uses
FX Flexible Stucco can be used on most interior surfaces such as plaster, plasterboard, cement-rendered surfaces and
sound, previously painted surfaces.
Surface Preparation
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster.
Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding
and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Then apply FX Stucco Undercoat as required.
For best results, surfaces should be well prepared and smooth.
Application
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or ideally use a power-
driven mixing paddle.
Trowel: Requires 2–3 coats applied with a stainless steel stucco trowel. Different sized trowels give different finishes. Place
a small amount of product onto the trowel and apply evenly over prepared surface. Trowel is held at an approximate
45-degree angle to the surface during application. To correct imperfections in each coat before applying next coat,
use 220-grade sandpaper or higher. When final coat is slightly dry, polish with stainless steel stucco trowel to achieve
desired special effect. This coating can also be polished with a special sandpaper to achieve a high sheen when
completely dry. FX Australia suggests using a worn, ultra-fine sanding block.
Clear Coating: Generally not required. For hardwearing areas or to achieve water resistance, apply a coating of clear
FX Wicked Wax® by trowel.
Approximate Spreading Rate: 4–6 square metres per litre, depending on application technique and surface roughness.
Approximate Film thickness per coat: Wet: 400 Microns; Dry: 250 Microns.
Requires: 2–3 coats.
Thinner: Not required.
Tinting: Refer to colour chart for tinting specifications.
Method: Stainless steel stucco trowel.
Drying Times (at 25 °C): Touch: 2 Hours; Recoat: 6 Hours.
Note: Do not apply paint if the air temperature or substrate temperature is below 10 °C or above 35 °C. The temperature
should not fall below 10 °C during the drying process.
Clean-up: Water. Safety: Dust Mask. Gloss Level: 20%–30% at a 60° viewing angle after final coat is polished.
