Ebano

Decorative lime-based "Stucco Antico" with black marble stones.

General Features:

EBANO is a lime based, semi-glossy "Stucco Antico" finishing coat formulated in the whole respect of traditional and historical "recipes" and therefore containing well seasoned hydrated lime putty, fine marble powder, linseed oil and rheologic modifiers, which guarantee a perfect workability of the product. The formulation of EBANO has been enriched with black marble stones, for soft and yet vibrant shades.

The wet product has a high workability: painters or decorators, by using his own ability, experience and manual skills may easily reproduce the famous "Stucco Mantovano or Encausto" and all sorts of marbling effects.

The high alkalinity degree typical of lime and a good permeability rate make of EBANO a perfect natural anti-mold agent.

Texture:

  • Velvet - No polishing with a stainless steel trowel.
  • Satin - Moderate polishing with a stainless steel trowel.
  • Semi-glossy - Highly polished with a stainless steel trowel.

Uses:

Ebano is a decorative finishing coat of extremely prestigious interior or exterior walls.

Natural lime plasters represent EBANO’s most suitable substrate, since the product reacts chemically with them, building up a unique “body” able to preserve this lime coating for a longer period of time.

Following the correct instructions about surface preparation EBANO may also be applied over:

  • Lime and Cement Mortars
  • Premixed renderings
  • Pre-existing lime and gypsum plasters
  • Moisture-permeable plasters
  • Gypsum plasterboard

Substrate Preparation:

The substrate must be perfectly dry, dust-free, with no humidity and salt stains.

New natural lime plasters: the substrate should “mature” for a period of minimum 20 days; then apply EBANO directly on the wall, which has been previously thoroughly wet with water, especially in case of windy and extremely hot weather.

New or recent lime and cement mortars, premixed renderings, gypsum and plaster boards: apply one priming coat of MARMUR Fine (lime plaster coat), mixed 1:1 with NOVAPRIMER and thinned with 50-100% of clean water, depending on substrate absorption. EBANO may be applied after around 4/6 hours.

Pre-existing chalking lime plasters: remove damaged and peeling areas with an adequate tool or high-pressure washing; apply one priming coat consisting of MARMUR Fine mixed 1:1 with NOVAPRIMER and thinned with 50-100% of clean water, depending on substrate absorption. Wait at least 4-6 hours prior to the application of EBANO.

Old synthetic paints and plasters: remove the synthetic finishing coat with a paint remover containing no paraffin. Wash the substrate by means of a high-pressure washing and prepare it according to its nature and following the instructions above.

Application Procedure & Recommendations:

EBANO is ready for use and therefore does not require any water dilution. For applications over exterior facades make sure you have an adequate number of decorators applying the product, in order to avoid any unaesthetic joint. Work in the shade and avoid direct sun light.

Apply the first coat with an inox trowel trying to level the wall and not to break too much the small granules inside the product. When this first coat is completely dry, i.e. after few hours, do apply the second one, always using a stainless steel trowel and making sure the thickness of the material you’re putting on the wall is thick enough to avoid any scratches. When the product starts to “set” polish the wall with the inox trowel used above.

For additional surface protection apply one coat of CERA – DECOWAX, to increase the ability to wash the product. The wax treatment is recommended in interiors only. In case of exterior protection, one coat of ACQUADIVETRO, siloxane transparent consolidation, is normally recommended.

Do not apply with rainy weather or with air or substrate temperature below 5° C.

Protect the facades from rain, at least along the first 48 hours, i.e. until lime has finished to set and started to get hard.

Specification:

Application of the lime based “Stucco Antico” finish EBANO in interior and exterior decoration works, made of well seasoned hydrated lime putty, fine marble powder, linseed oil and rheologic modifiers, enriched with black marble stones, for soft and yet vibrant shades, manufactured by Novacolor, Forlì, and applied in two or three coats with a stainless steel trowel and prior to an adequate priming coat if necessary, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

The substrates will be previously treated as follows (choose your specific case and calculate this as a separate charge):

New natural lime plasters: the substrate should “mature” for a period of minimum 20 days; then apply EBANO directly on the wall, which has been previously thoroughly wet with water, in case of windy and extremely hot weather.

New or recent lime and cement mortars, premixed renderings, gypsum and plaster boards: apply one priming coat of MARMUR Fine (lime plaster coat), mixed 1:1 with NOVAPRIMER and thinned with 50-100% of clean water, depending on substrate absorption. EBANO may be applied after around 4/6 hours.

Pre-existing chalking lime plasters: remove damaged and peeling areas with an adequate tool or high-pressure washing; apply one priming coat consisting of MARMUR Fine mixed 1:1 with NOVAPRIMER and thinned with 50-100% of clean water, depending on substrate absorption. Wait at least 4-6 hours prior to the application of EBANO Stucco finish.

Old synthetic paints and plasters: remove the synthetic finishing coat with a paint remover containing no paraffin. Wash the substrate by means of a high-pressure washing and prepare it according to its nature and following the instructions above.

For additional surface protection apply one coat of CERA – DECOWAX, to increase the ability to wash the product. In case of exterior protection, one coat of ACQUADIVETRO, siloxane transparent consolidation, is normally recommended.
