Gypfine High Coat

Gypfine High Coat is a thick smoothing plaster for rough substrates in the form of whitish powder, ready for manual application after the addition of the specific amount of water. It’s mechanically mixed and automatically packed with constant tested ratios, composed from primary raw materials and high quality additives enhancing the product performance. Natural elements compose more than 98% from the total weight. After adding the right portion of clean water, it gives homogeneous mortar ready for application without adding any additives. This is product has the ability to act as a first thick smoothing coat for rough substrates either Gyplast Fill or traditional sand & cement plaster to repair it in order to reach the required linning.

Gypfine High Coat after its setting gives a hard and smooth coat. It also features a very high adhesion to different types of substrates especially with lowest percentage of waste.

Key facts

  • Perfect repair for traditional Sand and Cement especially the very rough substrates
  • Gives a Very hard smooth whitish surface
  • Must be finished with Gypfine Almomtaz 120 or Gypfine Super Almomtaz on top of it to prepare surfaces for paints
  • Average coverage rate (Lab trials ) reaching 10 - 10.75 m²/sack at 3 mm thickness, according to type and roughness of substrates
  • Easy to prepare, only spray the powder to the indicated ratio of water then mix thoroughly till reaching the required consistency
  • Setting time 60 minutes according to storage and application conditions
  • Optimum for large areas because after setting Gypfine High Coat doesn’t show the jointing between different areas applied on a long interval of time making it perfect for repairs  and maintenance
  • At the end, the final surface is a whitish, strong and decorative rough texture

Application
