Areas of Use
Acrylic Crack Filler is suitable for exterior as well as interior surfaces.
When dry, Acrylic Crack Filler is weather resistant and bonds extremely well to cementitious materials, gypsum, gypsum boards, sprayplaster, wood, galvanized and primed antirust steel surfaces, etc.
Ensure the substrate is sound. Using a putty knife, cut along the cracks in a V shape. The maximum openings of the cracks should be 5 mm wide x 3 mm deep. Remove all the dust, dirt, foreign matter, plaster debris, etc. from the surface completely. Apply a diluted coat of Terraco Terrabond A (1:5 with water) to the opened crack by brush.
Infill the crack-openings using Terraco Acrylic Crack Filler and allow to dry. Ensure the crack filling is done in a crisscross pattern. Allow to dry for 6-8 hours and apply a second coat (if necessary) to achieve full levelling. If required, lightly sand down the final surface before painting, preferably within 24 hours of application. Apply the filler in a thin even layer (maximum 1mm).
Clean tools and equipment with water after use.
Do not apply during rising temperatures to avoid the risk of out gassing resulting in pin-holing. Do not apply on bituminous coating. For exterior areas, do not apply if rain is likely over the next 24 hours.
