Uses
Easy clean-up
FX Sydney Stucco can be used on most surfaces such as plaster, cement render, plasterboard 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. Ensure the surface is well prepared and as smooth as possible. Then apply FX
Stucco Undercoat as required.
Application
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or preferably use a
power-driven mixing paddle.
Trowel: Requires 2–3 coats with a stainless steel stucco trowel. Different sized trowels give different finishes. Place a small
amount of product on the trowel and apply evenly over prepared surface. The trowel is held at an approximate 45-
degree angle to the surface during application. Apply the second coat using the same method after 6 hours drying
time, and repeat for third coat if required. 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.
Note: A two-tone or marble effect is achieved by laying two colours side by side during application. The two colours will
smear to create a third colour. This technique requires a highly experienced applicator.
Clear Coating: Generally not required. For hardwearing areas, or water resistance, apply FX Wicked Wax® to seal
surfaces and achieve an enhanced sheen.
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: Water.
