It consists of a specially modified & highly refined quartz sand mixed with binders integrated with in a mixture of acrylic emulsion and pigments. This decorative granular finish is an excellent addition to our family of granular esthetic finishes such as Ezycoat Sandstone and Sand 800. Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse gives you versatility in extending the decorative finish parameters. Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse has been specifically designed as a top coat to various cementious render and skim rendered surfaces. Its coarse granular appearance makes it attractive for use over a variety of fibre cement cladding systems and precast concrete surfaces. Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse is a one part product that once mixed is ready for immediate use straight from the pail. The coarse granular particles allow Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse to be troweled on in a one coat application, with the ability to cater for minor imperfections which may exist in the surface.

Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse has been designed to produce a highly decorative external synthetic finish which is suitable for application to a variety of surfaces that would not normally accept a traditional render or modified skim render. Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse is ideally suited for application over propriety installed Fibre cement sheeted surfaces. Its ability to adhere to smooth surfaces and its flexible nature make it suitable for this type of application. It also suitable for use as a finish over existing Ezycoat Textured finishes & traditional rendered or Ezycoat EzySkim Render ,Ezypump, ECA and Ezycoat Super 6 surfaces.
When applying Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse to any surface it is recommended that the surfaces be free of any contaminant which may affect the performance of the coatings and that any visible imperfections in the surface which may be transferred through to the finished surface be patched using Ezycoat Coarse or Smooth Patch.(see Ezycoat Coarse Patch and Smooth Patch Technical Data sheets for further advice.)
Once having provided a uniform flat substrate, apply a base coat of Ezycoat Masonry Sealer (see Ezycoat Masonry Sealer Technical Data Sheet for further advice.) always maintaining even coverage. Then allow the treated surface to stand for approximately 1 hour, prior to applying Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse. Using a stainless steel plasterer’s trowel, evenly spreading the Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse over the surface.
Depending on the surface to be coated and previous surface preparations that have taken place, it may be necessary to apply the Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse in 2 coats. The first being the leveling coat which will be left as a float finish and the second the finishing coat. The finishing coat should be finished flat with a plastic trowel. Should a coarse type render finish be preferred then it is possible to sponge finish the Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse, however this will depend on personal choice.
Two coats of Ezycoat Membrane paint is then applied in accordance with the Ezycoat Membrane specifications, 48 hrs after the application of the Ezycoat Quartzite Coarse. This will complete the application process, producing a durable and aesthetically pleasing finish.
