Dri-Tex is the dry-mix alternative to traditional acrylic based architectural wall finishes. Dri-Tex is supplied as a light grey powder which is mixed on-site, applied by trowel, then painted in the desired colour. Dri-Tex is supplied in 20 kg bags and is simply mixed with clean water to achieve a workable paste ready for application. The use of Dri-Tex will result in a material saving of approximately 50% when compared to comparative pre-mixed acrylic texture coatings
Dri-Tex is not suitable for use as a base render. Ensure surface has been rendered with Macrender®, Macrender® HBS, Supaskim or equivalent prior to coating with Dri-Tex. Apply Dri-Tex to the surface with a steel trowel and spread evenly at a thickness governed by the coarsest particle size (approximately 1.5 mm)
Dri-Tex is a light off-white colour and can not be supplied pre-tinted. Application of Dri-Tex should be followed by the application of 2 coats of Mactexture Satin or any other high quality exterior grade acrylic paint in the desired colour.
