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.
Universal acrylic primer to prepare the substrate before painting or applying lime-based plasters.

TGF Tiles Gap Filler
It is a plaster with an extreme adhesion capacity, that doesn’t shrink when it dries off. Because of this quality, we use it to fill gaps between tiles in walls and floors, before applying Pastellone or other plasters. Moreover, since it is very adherent, it can be used as first layer on very smooth surfaces, such as marble or tile floors, before applying lime or cement-based flooring products. If our TGF is used, no sanding of the tiles is needed: just clean the tiles to remove the greasy substances before applying it.

It is a thickner for all our lime and cement based plasters. Our densifier is a speacial resin that, once mixed with an alkaline mixture, makes it denser and more viscous. It is used if the plaster is too liquid, for example when a big quantity of liquid pigment is added to the material. It can also be used when the plaster must be applied in great thinkness, to prevent it too fall from the wall during the application. Note that if the seggested quantity is exceeded (if you put more Densifier than needed) the material will go back to its liquid form.
