Product Overview

Gravitex Suede is a ready-mixed acrylic textured coating giving an aesthetically pleasing suede texture. It provides a unique combination of quality architectural finish combined with an outstanding economy through ease of application, low material consumption rate and surface durability.

Gravitex Suede adheres to most exterior and interior surfaces including plywood, chipboard, anti-rust primed steel, gypsum dry wall, sand/cement render and concrete. It also has excellent weathering properties.

Properties

Gravitex Suede is formulated from crushed and precisely graded fillers, acrylic binders and additives which give it elastic properties, long life and durability against colour fading and pollution. Its rich texture and in-built flexibility helps cover defects and minor cracks in the substrate.

Gravitex Suede is a medium build trowel applied finish. It is finished using a plastic trowel to give a suede effect finish.

Areas Of Use

Gravitex Suede is primarily designed for exterior facades and surfaces of buildings such as commercial and industrial complexes, office projects, factories, hospitals and housing developments.

Gravitex Suede can be used on surfaces of concrete, cement rendering, lightweight concrete, fairfaced stonework, brickwork, blockwork, plywood, antirust primed steel and galvanised steel.

The coating performs equally well on interior surfaces of gypsum dry wall and chipboard and is widely used as a decorative ceiling and wall finish.

Application Method

Surface Preparation:

New surfaces: Ensure that all dust, dirt and foreign matter are scraped and brushed away. Also ensure the surfaces are free from salts, oil, grease and ridges. Protect all adjacent surfaces not to be covered. All cracks, chips, voids and damages should be repaired with an appropriate filler.

Old surfaces: Before applying Gravitex Suede to old surfaces, ensure the substrate is firm. First wash down the surface with a soda / water solution, rinse and allow to dry before repairing or applying the first coat.

Priming:

Prime surfaces with a coat of Penetrating Primer tinted to same shade as finish, prior to application of Gravitex Suede.

Application and Cleaning of tools:

Trowel application is done using a steel trowel to lay on the material and a plastic trowel is used to pattern the surface. Clean tools and equipment with water after use.
