Base preparation

   The surface for decorative plaster application must be solid, cleaned from dust, mud, oil, fats, lime, wax, chalk or lime mixtures, oil or emulsion paints. Prior to plastering, the basis must be treated with IVSIL OSNOVA primer. Strongly absorbing bases (gaze and foam concrete, gipsum plaster, anhydrite) should be primed with IVSIL GLUBOKOGO PRONIKNOVENIYA (primer penetrator) and pre-aligned by one of facade plasters IVSIL (GROSS or THINER). Unevenness of a walls, a crack, and a recess should be also pre-aligned.


Mixing of mortar

   Dry plaster mix is poured into a mixing bucket with clean water in proportion of 25 kg (whole bag) of dry mix per 6 l of water, then thoroughly stirred manually or with the help of mixing drill, until homogeneous, elastic mixture without any lumps or clots is received. The mixture is left for 5-10 minutes and then stirred again.

   Prepared texture plaster mixture should be used within 2-3 hours.



   Do not apply in windy, rainy weather or under direct effect of sunshine. Technological process of application is as follows: apply a thin layer of decorative textural plaster to the surface with the help of metal plaster trowel and plaster float. Then remove extra plaster in order to leave the thickness not more than the size of grains.

   When the plaster starts to settle (does not stick to the tool), rub the surface with plastic or wood float by vertical, horizontal, circulating or cruciform movements of different amplitude. As a result of the movements the surface should acquire grooved rough texture (as if «bitten by a bark beetle»).

   The time frame of application depends on the temperature and humidity conditions. Applied decorative plaster should be protected from over-drying, effect of direct sunshine or frost (do not let it freeze) for 3 days. Further application of paint can be started not earlier than in 5 days. Any facade paints are suitable.

   The above mentioned instructions are valid for the following conditions: t=+23°, air humidity 60%. Time of setting and drying can vary in different conditions.

TEXTURA (Groove lines)


   Textured rendering IVSIL TEXTURA (Groove lines) is a decorative plaster mix, which creates a decorative (looks like a trace of the bark beetle) surface, ready for painting. Suitable for interior and exterior use and provides exterior thermo insulation of walls.   

   Decorative rough plaster mix IVSIL TEXTURA Groove lines is manufactured from white cement of high quality, imported polymer additives and special filler. When applied, this decorative plaster forms a solid, long lasting surface with a specific textural effect – the surface has relief furrows and grooves and looks very much like the surface of rough wood bitten by bark beetle. This rough plastered surface is ready for further painting. It has high steam penetration level. It is suitable for interior and facade jobs, including exterior facade thermo-insulation jobs; applied manually on solid basis (concrete, cement and gypsum plasters, plasterboards, gypsum fibre boards).

   Decorative textural plaster is easy to apply and it does not crack whilst drying. It has a very high level of bonding strength (similar to tile adhesive), which allows it to be used for facade decorative plastering in any climate zones of Russia.

   The basic price of decorative rough textural plaster IVSIL «Bark beetle style» is 330 roubles per 25kg sack. To see other prices of IVSIL finishing-off and facade plasters, please visit the section «Price List».
