Gamazine Surface Preparation
Life Coats are highly mastered manufacturers, suppliers and applicators of textured wall coatings.
The secret, however, is all in the wall preparation!
Our powerful combination of an umbrella coat and undercoat before the final product, creates a blend that offers the best protection and decorative value.
We ensure that these 3 stages are implemented in every project. That is what sets us apart from the rest!
1/ UMBRELLA COAT
Umbrella Coat is typically applied from the floor, 1 meter upward to ensure any rising damp occurrences are eliminated. It is very important to take all the necessary steps during the preparation stage.
This product consists of a concentrated resin & glue for deep penetration into the treated area. We can't stress the importance of this product enough! It insures our product and the contractors product is maintained in optimal condition.
Undercoat, also known as levelling coat is applied to the surface before Textured Wall Coatings. This bonds the material to any hard surfaces, include cement, asbestos, wood, fiberglass, gypsum, steel or tiles.
The undercoat consists of a resin to eliminate damp and ensure cracks are closed and hardened, creating an extended lifespan.
3/ DESIRED GAMAZINE COATING
Textured Wall Coatings are available in various grits, namely: 1.8 and 1.1 grit, suede finish and a fine moon dust finish.
We have 20 standard colours displayed within our showroom as well as a vast colour range which is available upon request.
**To increase your GamazIne Coating lifespan even further, you may also apply a clear coat over your final product. This product requires 1 - 3 coats, and creates a sheen appearance.
