Quartzcoat - Structural (textured) paint with fine quartz chips Quartz Emulsion based on an artificial resin dispersion (acrylate). Weatherproof, breathable, hides small unevenness in the substrate, shockproof and easy to apply, washable well. Has a high degree of adhesion. Available in white (base P white) and transparent (base TR transparent) for rich, dark colors. It is possible to apply (apply) structural paints Quartz Emulsion both in white (color) and tinted (colored in volume) form. Tinting can be done either manually or on an SPS toning machine using universal concentrated dyes.
It is used for decorative finishing of walls and ceilings for indoor and outdoor use. The increased moisture resistance allows the use of Quartz Emulsion in damp areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, toilets, etc. Heat resistance allows the use of Quartz Emulsion for decorative finishing of fireplaces, stoves on surfaces where the temperature does not exceed 80-90 ° C. Increased shock resistance, wear resistance ensures applicability in places with increased operational load - offices, shops, warehouses, etc.
The resulting structure after applying the structural paint Quartz Emulsion has the effect of a small "fur coat". Suitable substrates: cement plaster, concrete, plasterboard, fiberboard, etc. The surface must be level, dry, clean and free from grease. Cracks, cracks, scratches, holes must be putty. Loose paint layers must be removed and repaired. For external use, remove moss and other vegetation.
Drying time of the material 2 hours after application. It can be repainted after 18 hours, full hardening occurs in 7-10 days.

SPS material requirements.
- All cans must be provided with a production lot number at the SPS Factory (a set of numbers on the can lid), which is a product passport and by which the origin of the material and its characteristics (name, place, date and time of product manufacture) can be established;
- The seller organization must ensure that the material is stored correctly and is suitable for work;
- It is recommended to tint materials using SPS tinting equipment.
Requirements for application conditions.
- Air humidity no more than 60%;
- When working on the facade - after rain, at least one day must pass before plastering, after application at least one day there must be no rain;
- The temperature range for application is +5 - + 280C, after one day the temperature should be above + 30C;
- Do not work in direct sunlight.
Substrate preparation requirements for applying SPS materials.
Proper preparation of the substrate is essential before applying decorative plaster (plaster). The base should initially be flat and stable. For preliminary leveling of the surface, a starting putty or plaster is used. For thin-layer SPS materials (for example - quartz coat, raufaser, extra fine putty putz, etc.), the surface must be leveled additionally with a finishing putty or plaster. Exfoliating areas of plaster must be removed and repaired (plastering). The substrate is considered to be ready when it has been repaired, leveled and treated with a deep penetration acrylic primer.
Freshly plastered (putty) base (cement, lime-cement, gypsum, acrylic plasters and various dry cement-based adhesives).
Let the cement plaster stand for three to four weeks (20-30 days). Allow the rest of the plasters to dry for one to three days, depending on the thickness of the last layer and humidity. Apply a deep penetrating acrylic primer using a bristle brush (fur roller) and let it dry for 2-4 hours, depending on the humidity of the room. The surface is ready for working with quartz plasters.
Previously plastered (putty) base (cement, lime-cement, gypsum, acrylic plasters and various dry cement-based adhesives).
Clean the base from dust and dirt. Rinse with a degreasing solution. Remove peeling layers of plaster, fill in irregularities and cracks. Allow to dry for one to three days, depending on the thickness of the last layer and humidity. Apply a deep penetrating acrylic primer using a bristle brush (fur roller) and let it dry for 2-4 hours, depending on the humidity of the room. The surface is ready for working with quartz plasters.
Previously painted surfaces (unstable paint layers, water-based or alkyd paint.
Remove unstable paint layers as much as possible and thoroughly rinse the surface. Clean the layers of water-based or alkyd paint from dust and dirt, rinse with a degreasing solution. Remove lagging layers, putty on irregularities and cracks. Apply a deep penetrating acrylic primer using a bristle brush (fur roller) and let it dry for 2-4 hours, depending on the humidity of the room. Surfaces painted with alkyd paint should only be primed with putty areas. Sand the rest of the surface and remove dust. The surface is ready for working with quartz plasters.
Application of Quartz Emulsion.
A special quartz primer is applied to the prepared surface - Plaster Primer. The use of a quartz primer is necessary to create an adhesive layer to which the Qartz Emulsion will adhere well. After the quartz primer has dried (6 to 24 hours), you can start applying.
When working with Qartz Emulsion, follow these rules:
- work from corner to corner, avoiding long breaks, stops in the middle of the wall (ceiling);
- to work "wet on wet", i.e. to apply and modify the plaster in squares (length 1-1.5 m, height - 1.6-1.8 m) sequentially move from one corner to another;
- if necessary, dilute the material with water (max. 5%).
It is necessary to work with each wall individually. For a known area, it is necessary to determine the amount of material and prepare it, i.e. open the buckets, stir and add water if necessary (up to 5%). The surface plastering process is divided into three stages:
- applying decorative plaster to the prepared surface;
- setting the layer thickness and initial leveling of the applied material;
- final structuring, smoothing.
At the first stage, it is necessary to apply the material as evenly as possible on the selected surface - a square (1-1.5 m long and 1.6-1.8 m high). The material is applied with a metal scraper made of stainless steel, fur with a roller, a brush with a brush. It is necessary to strive to establish a uniform layer thickness over the entire application area.
At the second stage, it is necessary to set the final thickness of the applied material layer. This is done with the same metal scraper, fur roller, brush with a brush, the removed material is returned to the bucket. This operation is performed over the entire area of the selected square.
At the third stage, it is necessary to set the final structure of the applied material. To obtain the classic structure of a small “coat”, a “rough” structured roller is used. The use of other painting tools (spatula, polishers, brushes, rollers, etc.) allows you to obtain a wide range of various structures.
Having formed by one of the above methods, the structure in the applied square, you can proceed to the next square. This can be the rest of the wall to the ceiling, or the next square along the wall to the corner. Remove an edge about 0.5-1 cm wide along the edge of the applied square. We start drawing the next square from this edge. We consistently repeat all the actions described earlier. When structuring, pay maximum attention to the junction between the squares. The wall work ends when we get to the corner. The evenness of the applied plaster layer is periodically controlled by side lighting.
The applied plaster dries completely within 24 hours. Its complete hardening occurs in 10-12 days. After this time, the applied material can be fully loaded, i.e. wash with a brush, with any detergent.
When working with large areas, SPS should be applied by two or more workers.
When designing the inner and outer corners, you must first form one side of the corner. The decoration of the adjacent side of the corner must be done after drying (approximately 8-24 hours).
