Put 2 – 2, 2ℓ of clean
potable water in a 10ℓ plastic bucket and mix the dry powder slowly into the
water whilst continuously stirring. The best results are achieved by using a
mixing blade (obtainable at Breathecoat) clamped in an electric hand drill.
This insures a uniform smooth and lump free mix. Clean brushes and containers
Clean surface area thoroughly

Use a block-brush or Builders Brush and
apply the Breathecoat Textured Paint onto the wall substrate, making
strokes in vertical direction only. Finish the wall from top to bottom while
the paint is still wet, in vertical sections, with block-brush in one single
stroke to avoid joints.
Working from corner to corner, finish a
complete wall area, without stopping, keeping a wet edge.
On very hot (30°C and above),
windy days, pre-wet exterior walls when applying Breathecoat Textured Paint
only to saturate the wall.
Stir the contents of the 10L bucket during application regularly (every 2
minutes) to avoid the coarse aggregate settling.
Sealant: spray, roll or brush on for high dirt areas
Stain resistant, solvent free sealants are available in matt or sheen.
Apply two coats.
Due to the great thickness of the coating, touching up is difficult. A whole panel might have to be repainted.
Other products are available
for alternative finishes (wall: ultra smooth, smooth, Stucco finish.) and other
surfaces (wood, metal, roof, flooring, etc.).
Breathecoat Textured Paint is cementitiousand if applied on exterior surfaces, specifically the darker colours,
rain might cause efflorescence (a white powdery residue, due to the water
washing the non-soluble salts from the paint layer, noticeable on the darker
colours ). Efflorescence might take 6 months to 9 months to wash out completely
before it will start fading away. Four weeks after application, if
efflorescence occurs, a 10% solution of white vinegar can be used to wash it or
To avoid efflorescence:
- Apply a thin mist
spray onto the newly painted surface, spraying from bottom to top, a day after paint application. Repeat one day later.
This will cure the paint quicker.
- Apply Breathecoat
Cementitious Paints take 28
days to reach full cure. After 28 days it will reach maximum strengths and wash
Prominent variation in the
substrate might show through on the surface of the paint as a colour variation.
Substrates must be thoroughly prepared.
