Mineral coating over cellular concrete

Cellular concrete blocks are characterized by their high porosity and low density, are excellent thermal insulators and have low compression resistance.

Preliminary analysis

This type of partition wall has intrinsic characteristics that differentiates it from other substrates, as they are excellent thermal insulators due to their low density and resistance. In addition, they have high water absorption, due to which they require treatment prior to the application of mortars.

Technical considerations

A series of steps must be followed before the final application of the coating mortar:

In all cases, the substrate must be moistened with plenty of water and wait for the superficial shine to disappear before applying GECOL Primer-TP base coat diluted with water in the ratio of 1:3, as an absorption regulator.

If exclusively applying GECOL Monocapa one-coat, previous 3-5 mm sealing must be performing using the same product.

The stability of this last coat is verified after 24 hours have elapsed; otherwise, soak with water and wait an additional 24 hours.
