Ezycoat Scratch is available in a varying of texture finishes from the more aggressive and coarse 3mm Ezycoat Scratch through to the more refined and elegant 1mm Ezycoat Scratch. Whatever your requirements Ezycoat Scratch has a finish that will suit you.
Ezycoat Scratch has been designed to produce a highly decorative external synthetic finish which is suitable for application to a variety of surfaces. Ezycoat Scratch is ideally suited for application over propriety installed Fibre cement sheeted surfaces and precast concrete. Its ability to adhere to smooth surfaces and its flexible nature make it suitable for this types of application. It is 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 Scratch 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 Hi Opacity or Masonry Sealer (see Ezycoat Hi Opacity & 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 Scratch. Using a stainless steel plasterer’s trowel, evenly spread the Ezycoat Scratch over the surface.
Depending on the finish required, Ezycoat Scratch may be finished with a polystyrene float in either a vertical scratch pattern (traventin) or a circular pattern(circular swirl). In some instances so as to produce a flatter finish, it may be desirable to finish the Ezycoat Scratch with a plastic float after having produced the scratch pattern with the polystyrene float.
Two coats of Ezycoat Membrane paint is then applied in accordance with the Ezycoat Membrane specifications, 48 hrs after the application of the Ezycoat Scratch. This will complete the application process, producing a durable and aesthetically pleasing finish.
Due to the many different proprietary building systems available on the market, it is highly recommended that you contact our offices and request a copy of the Ezycoat specification for the building system you are using.
