Technical Data Sheet


A durable, flexible, ready for use, textured exterior wall coating which will remain flexible against the harshest weather conditions. Dekatex is made up of marble chips together with interlocking mica particles. These additives provide extra body for a thick flexible coating which covers hairline cracks in one coat.

<strong>PRODUCT BENEFITS</strong>:
Ideal as a finishing coat for new or previously painted concrete/plaster surfaces. Highly recommended for surfaces where hairline cracks are predominant. Dekatex imparts outstanding weather resistance and a textured finish, giving long term exterior protection.

<strong>SURFACE PREPARATION</strong>:
Surface to be painted must be thoroughly clean, dry and free from all foreign contaminants.
– All bare exposed metal areas must be spot primed with the appropriate primer/undercoat. Remove all surface rust and prime with 2 coats of Dekade Rust and Metal Primer.
– Gloss and oil paint surfaces to be thoroughly sanded and wiped down with damp cloth. Apply 1 coat Dekade Universal Undercoat and allow 24 hours to dry.
– Chalky surfaces must be thoroughly brushed/sanded before applying 1 coat Dekade Surface Conditioner diluted 10% with Mineral Turpentine.

Do not apply during cold, wet conditions. Do not apply directly to unprimed metal surfaces.
