Wall Additives

Unleash creativity, add a touch to your finishes

A unique feature of Stucco Italiano is its great range of additives, associated with its offer of plain materials. Some of these auxiliaries are developed to solve the problems that commonly occur to appliers and to facilitate the plaster’s application. Other supplements are conceived to add special effects to lime and acrylic finishes, or to provide them with the best protection.

Substrate Preparation

Universal Primer

Universal acrylic primer to prepare the substrate before painting or applying lime-based plasters. It has to be diluted 1 to 9 with water, and then be applied with a roller on every type of substrate.

If our TGF is used, no sanding of the tiles is needed: just clean the tiles to remove the greasy substances before applying it.
