Description


The composition of Terrae Marmaron is based exclusively on natural raw materials like lime, metal oxides. marble, dolomite, quartz, pozzolan and natural hydraulic lime. It does not contain any cement, toxic substances, petrochemicals or volatile organic compounds (0%VOCs)

Suitable for green building and bioclimatic design.

The end result of the finishing is not of a solid uniform color like plastic paints or synthetic colored plasters. Instead it has a natural distinctive finish with a wide color gradient giving depth and character.

Applications


It is highly responsive to various application technique giving a wide range of finishes. The distinctive character of Terrae Marmaron is equally suitable in traditional applications as well as modern designs.

Terrae Marmaron is naturally bacteriostatic and fungistatic. Highly breathable material, regulating indoor moisture levels. Improves indoor air quality.

Cost efficient solution due to eliminating the need for painting and the high maintenance costs associated with painting.

Highly durable even in adverse conditions such as in coastal areas. Suitable in historical applications due to its natural composition and compatibility with historical materials and techniques. Suitable for pointing rock masonry.

In outdoors applications Terrae Marmaron develops a patina over time which is considered part of the charm of the material. In case that is not desired a sealer must be applied.

0% volatile organic compounds.

Application Instructions


 

Preparation

The substrate must be clean, fully cured, solid and sound, uniform and homogeneous.

Prior to application we thoroughly wet the substrate.

 

Mixing Procedure

Add 5.5 liters of water per 25kg bag, in a container and gradually add the bags mixing with a plaster mixer.

Only mix whole bags.

Mix for approximately 5 minutes, until a uniform paste is achieved (initially it will appear dry, do not add water, just keep mixing).

 

Application

Use a trowel or other appropriate tool for initial layering ,leveling with a float and finishing with a soft sponge float if a very smooth finish is required. It can also be burnished and polished, chiseled (after one day of curing) and numerous other ways.

Discreet surfaces must be applied uninterrupted to avoid visible joints, always finishing on the edges of intersecting surfaces.

For the first 24 ours after initial application keep surfaces damp with light uniform sprinkling. Quick drying must be avoided as with all plasters when curing.

Wash tools with water.
