The Stucco Supply Co. Application Process
Before applying the Acrylic Finish, we recommend you use our Superior Stucco Base Primer to give your acrylic stucco an even longer lifespan and protection. Below are the steps we take to ensure your surface gets the best protection from our base primer.
- Surface Preparation: To ensure our materials are appropriately applied, we will need to free the area of
any dirt, debris, efflorescence, grease, oils, curing agents, and cleaning solutions. Once completely dry,
the stucco contractor. can begin working on your surface. We recommend repairing any cracks or other
issues before applying the base primer to secure the bond.
- Mixing: One of the most essential steps in the application process is mixing. This assists in giving you a
nice clean surface without dry spots, clumps, or other imperfections. It is especially important when
adding color to your base primer. If you are looking to add our base primer to spray equipment, make
sure you follow the steps on the package. You can also reach out to Stucco Supply Co. with any
- Application: When it comes to application, you have a couple of different options to get the job done.
The tools at your disposal include brushes, rollers, and sprayers. Each comes with their own unique
benefits and can help you achieve the desired look. After completing the first two steps, apply base
primer directly to the substrate and avoid puddling the material.
- Drying: Drying time will vary based on if applied on the interior or exterior of your building and the
weather impacting your area at the time. Ideal conditions are sunny, clear skies. It is not recommended
to apply if rain is present or in the near forecast. Try to keep the walls covered best you can when rain is
present, if necessary.
