How to Apply

Make the surface clean, free of debris and oil. Chasing should be completely filled

Apply the first layer of base coat over the entire surface.

Apply the mesh from the top to the bottom of the wall by pressing it into the first layer of the base coat (starting from the centre then out to the side).

Apply the rest of the base coat keeping the mesh sandwiched between the two coats

Apply at least 3 mm of upper coat material on top of the base coat
