White, Ivory, Pink, Wood, Red, Bordeaux, Green, Stone, Grey. (See color chart).

Mixing instructions

Mix VALSEC MONOCAPA PIEDRA with clean water to obtain a smooth paste (6.5 litres/bag). The mix can be prepared manually or mechanically.

The working time is 30 minutes depending on the environmental conditions. When preparing the mortar, use the same amount of water and mixing time for the entire process. Do not use any admixtures without authorisation from the manufacturer.

Substrate preparation

Substrates must fulfil the following conditions:

  • They must be strong, clean and stable.
  • Do not use on water-repellent substrates or on substrates with plaster, paint or plastic coating.
  • In the case of irregular or uneven walls, a mortar levelling course must be applied first.
  • It is advisable to roughen surfaces which are too smooth or not very porous.
  • On very smooth surfaces, an adherence layer is recommended consisting of a fine layer of mortar mixed with a cement-compatible acrylic emulsion.
  • The substrate should not be excessively dry or waterlogged. In warm weather, dampen the wall before application; spray with clean water on the following day.
  • Use alkali-resistant fibreglass mesh as a bridge between different substrates. The mesh must overlap at least 20 cm on each side of the joint.

Mortar made from white cement, graded aggregate, organic and inorganic admixtures, waterproofing compounds and mineral pigments..

Instructions for application

Apply with spray or trowel in layers of 10-15 mm. Divide the work area into smaller panels with laths and float the mortar to obtain a level surface. Respect expansion joints and treat them appropriately.

Leave an open time of 15-45 minutes, depending on the weather, for the mortar to harden. It is important to attain the optimum level of setting before dashing with marble stone.

To ensure adhesion, the mortar should be hard and damp throughout. Once it has started to harden, dry-dash with marble stone and press slightly with float. The dashing stone should not be wet. Remove the laths the following day, once the mortar edges no longer crumble.

The mortar layer should be at least 10 mm thick. To avoid of carbonation and colour changes, do not use if there is a risk of rain or frost.
