This product can be used both manually or mechanically through a spraying machine. It works through PFT machines as well as larger diesel machines such as the Putmesiter.
As this product is a natural hydraulic lime (NHL) mortar, it sets under the presence of water. The 25kg paper bags need to be kept dry, as if the product comes in contact with water it will start to set. If the product is stored under dry conditions it has a shelf life of 12 months from the date of manufacture.
As with all lime mortars, we would advise wetting down the background prior to using Tector Natural Finish. It is important to protect the mortar while curing from direct sun and also frost. Hessian sheeting should be used to protect the mortar/render.
