Product Description

Resene Limelock is a new preparatory coating used for the curing and sealing of cementitious substrates. It promotes cure by producing a water barrier, which unlike traditional curing membranes, may be overcoated with waterborne finishes at any stage. Its ability to cure and seal the substrate eliminates the need to leave the plaster to cure for seven days before painting. When dark, heat absorbing topcoats are planned, it is still prudent to wait seven days before painting. Resene Limelock traps free lime in the cementitious substrate protecting the paint finish against the appearance of unsightly lime staining, and providing a perfect base for subsequent Resene finishes.

Colour: White.

Typical uses:
- Cementitious surfaces, including concrete, render, stucco, and thin layer polymer modified plaster.

1. Promotes early cure of fresh cementitious surfaces minimising downtime between the completion of plastering and commencement of painting.
2. White pigmentation increases the albedo of the system to retain moisture.
3. Seals in free lime to protect against the unwanted appearance of lime staining.
4. Good adhesion to fresh cementitious substrates.
5. Provides an excellent base for a wide range of Resene coatings.
6. An Environmental Choice approved product.

1. Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or when it is liable to drop below 10°C during the drying period.
2. Resene Limelock is designed to be overcoated.
3. Resene Limelock is considered to be part of the surface preparation process and should be applied as soon as possible over plaster systems to achieve maximum potential.
