Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing

Internal Block Walls & Rough Surfaces

For manual application, add to the mixing container 7.5-8.5 liters of water for each 25 Kg bag of Vetonit Base WR. For the Spray machine application, use 9.5-10.0 liters of water for each 25 kg bag. Add the powder to the water and mix with a mechanical mixer, or use a low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle. Mix for 3-4 minutes until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes, and remix briefly without adding further water.

Smooth Concrete Surfaces

Add 0.5 liters of Vetonit Bond 2 to the mixing water and adjust the water requirement accordingly for each 25 kg bag. Follow the same mixing procedure as described above.

Use the mixed material within 4 hours. Do not add water to the mix once the mixed mortar starts to harden.

Application

Apply  Vetonit Base WR to achieve a maximum thickness of 5 mm in layers, 1-2 mm per layer.

To obtain different finish textures, select the appropriate gun nozzle size, or vary the spraying distance.

Do not disturb the installed material for at least 48 hours.

Curing

Cure Vetonit Base WR by spraying the applied material’s surface with water every 12 hrs for a minimum of 3 days. During hot & dry conditions, allow curing for a minimum of 5 days. This will help achieve a uniform color, minimize the risk of surface cracks, and lead to higher mechanical strengths.

Cleaning

Clean all tools with water immediately after finishing. Clean hardened materials mechanically.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound,  clean, free from loose material, grease, laitance, dirt curing compound, etc.

Before the Vetonit Base WR application, wet the entire surfaces with clean potable water, and the surface should look damp at the time of the Vetonit Base WR application.

Limitation
  • Do not mix with any additives or products unless recommended by Saveto.
  • Make sure the substrate is suitable for the plaster coat application. In case of doubt, try on the sample area to assess its suitability.
  • Do not apply the product at a temperature of less than +5ºC. During the summer season, the working area must be covered to prevent ill-effects from direct sun and excessive air-draught during the initial curing stage.
  • For further information contact our technical department.
