Application

Sand Textures are mediums that produce somewhat translucent to opaque cut stone and stucco finishes as well as sand-wash looks. They are semi-opaque to opaque acrylic texture coatings formulated with no crushable aggregates and therefore will not change texture as they are worked. They may be troweled to a uniform surface or stippled for maximum coarseness.

Installed finishes are expected to exhibit some variations in lightness/darkness as the result of being hand tooled. The degree of surface smoothness, finish design, and application method and technique will also influence the uniformity of finish appearance.

Proceed Sand Textures are waterborne products. Working time, dry-to-touch, and cure times will be influenced by environmental factors such as temperature, relative humidity, and air circulation. Do not apply Sand Texture when the substrate or ambient air temperature is below 60° F or in excess of 95° F.

Cold weather conditions Provide heat as required to maintain the ambient temperature above 60° F. Temperatures above 65° F are preferred. Distribute heat evenly throughout the work area to prevent concentration of heat on work surfaces near heat sources.

Warm weather conditions Anticipate accelerated rates of drying in hot and dry conditions, and longer drying times in high humidity conditions. Excessively rapid evaporation from strong flows of dry air may cause the product to dry on tools and open containers to produce dried particulates that contaminate the finish.

Be aware of localized areas of temperature differentials and air movement (or lack thereof) that can affect the drying rate and working time of waterborne coatings. Such areas include surfaces in close proximity to heating/cooling outlets, open windows, niches, and high ceilings. Providing for a moderate level of air circulation can mitigate these effects.

If worked to a smooth finish, imperfections and raised areas in the work surface may telegraph through the finish. For smooth finishes applied to drywall, close attention should be paid to the quality of seam taping, sanding, and priming. Protect contiguous surfaces from soiling caused by the application of Sand Texture.
