8.2 Exposure Controls

As the use of adequate technical equipment must always take priority over personal protection equipment, make sure that the workplace is well aired through effective local aspiration or bad air vent. If such operations do not make it possible to keep the concentration of the product below the permitted workplace exposure thresholds a suitable respiratory tract protection must be used. See product label for hazard details during use. Ask your chemical substance suppliers for advice when choosing personal protection equipment. Personal protection equipment must comply with the rules in force indicated below.

HANDLING PROTECTION

Protect hands with category III (ref. Directive 89/686/EEC and standard EN 374) work gloves, such as those in PVA, butyl, fluoroelastomer or equivalent. The following should be considered when choosing work glove material: degradation, breakage times and permeation. Work glove resistance to preparations should be checked before use, as it can be unpredictable. Gloves` limit depends on the duration of exposure.

EYE PROTECTION

Wear hood visor or protective visor together with airtight goggles (ref. Standard EN 166).

SKIN PROTECTION

Wear category III professional long-sleeved overalls and safety footwear (ref. Directive 89/686/CEE and Standard EN 344). Wash body with soap and water after removing overalls.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

If the threshold value for one or more of the substances present in the preparation for daily exposure in the workplace or to a fraction established by the company`s prevention and protection service is exceeded, wear a mask with an A or universal filter, the class (1, 2 or 3) of which must be chosen according to the limit concentration of use (ref. standard EN 141).

The use of breathing protection equipment, such as masks with organic vapour and dust/mist cartridges, is necessary in the absence of technical measures limiting worker exposure. The protection provided by masks is in any case limited.

If the substance in question is odourless or its olfactory threshold is higher than the relative exposure limit and in the event of an emergency, or when exposure levels are unknown or the concentration of oxygen in the workplace is less than 17% volume, wear self-contained, open-circuit compressed air breathing apparatus (ref. Standard EN 137) or fresh air hose breathing apparatus for use with full face mask, half mask or mouthpiece (ref. Standard EN 138).

FIELDS OF APPLICATION

BioMarmorino Flat is a high quality slaked lime plaster ideal for stucco finishes when applied to NHL cements and slaked lime stuccos, permitting endurance cycles that can last intact for centuries. BioMarmorino Flat can be applied to all types of portland cement surfaces, cementitious boards, MGO mineral boards, and almost any type of masonry surface prepared correctly.

BioMarmorino Flat can be applied to directly to all interior walls surfaces composed of sheetrock, painted or non-painted, using an appropriate primer.

This plaster product is not oil proof, and can be damaged by foods, greases, body oils, color crayons or washable colored markers. Cleaning may damage or change the sheen of the paint.

PRODUCT FEATURES

BioMarmorino Flat is a historical slaked lime plaster, ideal for interior and exterior surfaces, applied on masonry or sheetrock surfaces to provide a classical plaster finish with chromatic color variability. BioMarmorino Flat is made in the ancient tradition, with the capabilities to carbonize to masonry surfaces providing decades of durability, withstanding most climatic conditions and not capitulate to environmental stress. BioMarmorino Flat has been formulated to form to a slow set to permit application on large surfaces without “freezing” or setting prematurely. BioMarmorino Flat can be applied for exterior finishes without the risk of damage from freeze/thaw, water, or damage from UV. BioMarmorino Flat finish provides a flat finish with slight translucent depth and sublime shades of color with very slight hint of the fine aggregate that distinguishes Marmorino plasters. A non-acrylic product that provides superior adhesion than typical gypsum lime plasters, with custom color matching available for most medium dark to light colors.

A 100% natural mineral product, completely permeable, breathable, absorbs CO2, provides good anchoring power with mineral surfaces by carbonization. Provides protection against the formation of bacteria that forms mold. Product is considered a natural organic product, ideal for use in homes, schools, and hospitals and work sensitive areas.

BioMarmorino Flat is specifically design to be tinted with natural oxide earth tints and 0% VOC colorants to increase esthetic color values with minimal impact to the environment and to provide toxic free air quality for indoors. BioMarmorino Flat is an organic paint material as described in the Bio Category description.

TYPE OF PRODUCT

Slaked lime coating according to UNI 8681 with no organic stabilizers.

SHEEN FINISH

COLOR

White Base. Color tint up to 8% max with approved tints. Custom color tint matching is available.

APPLICATION CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS

TRPWEL APPLICATIONS

1ST COAT     Prepare surfaces for non-mineral bases or portland cement bases by applying a mineral primer with BioGrip Primer Medium (see instructions). For best performance, durability, and proper carbonization, apply one (1)-coat of BioCement GF 1.0 on primed base and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. Surface should be smooth and even, or for decorative effects, BioCement GF 1.0 can be lightly skip toweled, or sponge finished, to heighten burnishing effects for final coat of BioMarmorino Flat.

2ND COAT     Apply BioMarmorino Flat to prepared base using a round edge trowel specially designed for fine plaster applications. Apply a thin layer of product and cover entire surface and then remove excess by tilting trowel to approximately 30°. Once excess has been removed, smooth surface using a 30° angle, compressing plaster using the same angle, in arched trowel motions, with a forward and backward direction, to create a smooth surface as is possible and allow product to slightly set. Do not overwork surface with a trowel after the initial covering of the surface, but allow the moisture to be absorbed into the base, so as product appears to have slightly set. Then begin to compress setting coat of Marmorino, pushing gently with the weight of the trowel to create a perfectly smooth and flat surface. Allow moisture to reduce again, and continue with arched trowel motions, in a forward and backward direction, to compress surface to achieve a uniform, even, and glass like type surface. Do not continue to overwork surface with trowel motions, permitting sufficient time between compressions with a trowel for the plaster to dry naturally. Maintain a clean trowel at all times during finishes. At the last phase of drying and finishing, using a 15 – 20° angle on the finish trowel; burnish the Marmorino surface to achieve the desired sheen and decorative effect. Typical time lapse for this product to set between initial application and final burnishing is 1 – 3 hours when applied to a BioCement GF or natural stucco base.

3rd COAT     Traditionally, and in most cases, it is strongly suggested to not complete the last phase of burnishing on an one (1)-coat Marmorino application. Once BioMarmorino Flat has visibly dried, repeat the steps of the 2nd coat indicated above, applying less material than at the initial onset of applying and covering the surface. Apply only enough material as is necessary to cover surface and permit a very smooth and flat surface. Follow instructions indicated above including the burnishing with the trowel to create a professional and traditional finish as is historically typical for Marmorino plasters. It is important not overwork the surface for burnishing BioMarmorino Flat, as this product has been designed to have a polished surface. Typical time lapse for this product to set between initial application and final burnishing as a 3rd coat is 2 – 4 hours.

Brush Applications

In some instances for very specific applications techniques, using a rough base of BioCement GF or GM with either a skipped trowel or sponge finish, BioMarmorino Flat can be slightly diluted with water and using a paint brush, applying in a crisscross pattern, can create an unusual, non-polished, durable painted masonry surface. For further visual interest, the paintbrush application can be flattened with a trowel and lightly burnished to enhance the over-all effect. This is a special effect and cannot be used for creating traditional smooth and polished surfaces as is typical with BioMarmorino.

Roller Applications

This product is not recommended for roller applications.

GRAIN SIZE     0.04 mm

MIXING

Prior to utilizing ready-to-use masonry products from new buckets, it is highly recommended to mix product with a drill and masonry paddle to prep material for easier removal and application. Mixing masonry products with a drill properly mixes water content and heats up the material so it renders it more pliable.

TOOLS

Apply with a polishing trowel designed specifically for BioMarmorino or Grassello Bio plaster finishes. Use stainless steel or plastic trowels as may be needed.

DRYING TIME

Allow a drying time for the 1st coat of BioCement GF 1.0 or any of the BioMarmorino’s for at least 8 – 12 hours, and with successive coats allow at least 1 – 4 hours between coats as indicated in the instructions above, needed to create the final finish. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed between coats.

Do not apply BioMarmorino Flat on the exterior if there is a risk of thunderstorms or showers during the 12-hour drying time needed for product to dry and carbonize correctly. If this risk could occur and the surface is essentially visibly dry and hard to the touch, wet surface quickly and evenly with water, starting from the bottom of the wall moving upward, without using force or sharp water directional spraying, and allow to dry. This process will help protect against flashing or water damages to the Marmorino during the initial carbonization period in the case of rain and subsequent rapid cooling on semi-dried BioMarmorino.

It is advised not to apply mineral paints or plasters in direct sun with temperatures over 75°F – 80°F / 20°C – 24°C, using shaded sides of walls for applications. Extremely hot and dry climates may require the masonry base coat to be thoroughly dampened prior to application of 1st coat of plaster, or if significant time has passed between 1st coat of base application and the initiating of the 2nd coat. It is advised to not apply any mineral paints or plasters in temperatures over 88°F / 31°C. Never allow mineral paints or plasters to be stored or placed, with or without lids, directly in the path of the sun. Always keep lids on as is possible during work cycles to prevent the absorption of air, as most mineral products will carbonize in the presence of CO2.

CONSUMPTION/COVERAGE

Approximately 300 ft2 / 28 mt2 – 400 ft2 / 37 mt2 depending on absorption and type of base. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

PACKAGING

Plastic buckets of 1, 5 and 15 liters.

Other recommendations

SCREED BOARD USE

For crown or baseboard installations which require true straight wall finishes where caulk or paint is not an option for finishes, it is recommended to install a screed board, both for crown and/or base, to extend 1/8″ beyond surface of sheetrock, using a string to create a parallel line, and use wedges or shims to correct discrepancies on the finished stud wall, so that during the application of BioCement GF 1.0, the material can be used to correct any uneven surfaces resulting in dips or concave surfaces so as to produce a straight wall. The BioCement GF 1.0 (typically 1/16″ thick millage) can be used to fine tune discrepancy’s, not applying more than 3/16″ material at a single time, otherwise cracks may form during drying period. Several coats may be required to correct overly deep wall distortions.

TRIM & FLOOR SCHDULES

It is suggested for all plaster finishes that where possible, window, door, and finish trim, should not be installed until application of 1st coat of BioCement GF 1.0. Allow product to dry for 8 – 12 hours before installing trim.

Prep prime, paint or varnish trim with all coats with the exception of the last finish coat. Complete application of 1st and 2nd coat of BioMarmorino Flat and allow to dry for 24 – 48 hours before continuing applying final application of finishes for trim. Finished trim edges adjacent to plaster walls should be taped with an appropriate removable type to reduce damage to a minimum to trim finishes after completion of plaster applications.

Floor finishes should also be completed to the same condition as is typical for trim schedule indicated above. It is recommended that final coat of floor varnish finish be applied after all plaster and paint schedules have been completed. Trim and floor applicators will have to perform due diligence when applying final finishes as all plaster finishes may be damaged if paints or varnishes are applied in error onto finished plaster walls.

PAINTED SHEETROCK

Painted sheetrock must be primed with an anchor coat of BioGrip Primer Medium diluted with water at 40% and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. Any repairs or patches made with sheetrock compound or similar material must be consolidated with EcoForte Consolidator or BioDomus SuperFlat both diluted with water 25%, and apply to all surfaces with a brush, roller, or sprayer. Allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. It is advised to tape-off all trim areas before the application of any aggregated paints or plasters.

Apply one (1) coat of BioGrip Primer Medium diluted with water 40% and apply to all surfaces with a brush, roller or sprayer. Allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours.

Apply one (1) coat of BioCement GF 1.0 as a base plaster coat, applying with a steel trowel to desired finish as a base. Allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours.

Apply one (1) or two (2) coats of BioMarmorino Flat as indicated in instructions above.

CEMENTITIOUS BOARD

Prepare butt joints with manufacturer’s recommendations for tile backer boards as may apply using mesh tape and modified acrylic mortar or thin-set as directed.

Apply one (1)-coat of BioGrip Primer Medium diluted with water 40% and apply to all surfaces with a brush, roller or sprayer. Allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours.

Apply one (1)-coat of BioCement GF 1.0 as a base plaster coat, applying with a steel trowel to desired finish as a base. Allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours.

Apply one (1) or two (2)-coats of BioMarmorino Flat as indicated in instructions above.

CONCRETE FLOORS, SIDEWALKS OR DRIVEWAY

BioMarmorino Flat cannot be used on Portland Cement based floors, sidewalk or driveways.

New Cement Stuccos

PORTLAND CEMENTS/REINFORCED CONCRETE

New portland cement should not be painted for about 21 – 28 days to ensure proper anchoring and drying. Apply 1 coat of BioGrip Micro or Medium diluted 30% with water, 4.5 liters water to one (1)-bucket 15 liters of product; allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply one (1)-coat of BioCement GF 1.0 as a base plaster coat, applying with a steel trowel to desired finish as a base. Prepare base as needed to provide a level 5 finish. Apply one (1) or two (2)-coats of BioMarmorino Flat as indicated in instructions above.

NHL 3.5 & 5.0 Cements

NHL 3.5 and NHL 5.0 natural cements do not require the use of a primer when applying BioMarmorino Flat. Depending on quality of base coat application BioMarmorino Flat can be applied directly to surface without the need for BioCement GF 1.0. If surface finish is not prepared to a level 4 – 5, BioCement GF 1.0 must be used to properly prepare a sufficiently smooth base to permit proper application of BioMarmorino Flat to avoid excessive product waste for final finishes.

Decaying or Crumbling Stuccos or Powdery Surfaces

Chalking surfaces, which could prevent the proper anchoring of the base coating must be removed and pressure washed. Apply Potassium Silicate Concentrate, diluted 100% with water (1:1) on all damaged surfaces, applying 2 – 3 coats in rapid succession and allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply 1 coat of BioGrip Micro or Medium diluted 30% with water, 4.5 liters water to one (1)-bucket 15 liters of product; allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply base, 1st coat of BioCement GF 1.0, and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. Apply final finishes with BioMarmorino Flat according to instructions.

Coatings with Efflorescence

Cement surfaces showing efflorescence should be removed with acid and thoroughly rinsed with water. Apply Potassium Silicate Concentrate, diluted 100% with water (1:1) on all damaged surfaces, applying 2 – 3 coats in rapid succession and allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply 1 coat of BioGrip Micro or Medium diluted 30% with water, 4.5 liters water to one (1)-bucket 15 liters of product; allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply base, 1st coat of BioCement GF 1.0, and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. Apply final finishes with BioMarmorino Flat according to instructions.

For coatings on surfaces damaged by the saltpeter or efflorescence no guarantees can be provided.

Aged Cement Stuccos

When new stucco repairs are performed on older cement stuccos, apply EcoForte Consolidator diluted 50% with water (2:1), to older surfaces prior to applying new cement stucco. Dirty and/or contaminated surfaces should be cleaned and any attached algae removed manually or by mechanical means, i.e., with a high-pressure washer. Stucco damaged by algae or mold should be treated with EcoDis. Apply EcoForte Consolidator to any new stucco repairs with the same dilution. Apply 1 coat of BioGrip Micro or Medium diluted 30% with water, 4.5 liters water to one (1)-bucket 15 liters of product; allow to dry for at least 12 hours. Apply base, 1st coat of BioCement GF 1.0, and allow to dry for 8 – 12 hours. Apply final finishes with BioMarmorino Flat according to instructions.
