Italy's Finest EIFS Finish Float
White PVC Plastic Plate
2" x 11" (Mini) & 5" x 11" EIFS Floats
1. Apply by EIFS finish coat by mechanical sprayer or traditional hawk and stainless steel trowel. Do not apply by roller or brush. Maintain a minimum thickness equal to the size of the largest aggregate. When possible, apply Acrylic EIFS Stucco finish to shaded wall surfaces to eliminate unsightly cold joints, apply continuously on each wall section without stopping.
2. The traditional EIFS sand float texture can be achieved with Medium and Coarse textures by floating the surface in a random motion with a hard-faced plastic or molded rubber sponge float. To achieve the traditional look from the two Swirl textures, float the surface in a random motion with a hard-faced plastic float immediately after applying the coating.
3. For heavy textures, select the Medium, Coarse, Swirl Fine or Swirl Coarse texture. Allow the first coat to set up slightly before texturing.
4. When applying EIFS Fine textures, we recommend a two-coat application. The first coat should be dry to the touch before applying the second coat. Immediately after applying the second coat, float the finish surface in a random motion with a hard-faced plastic float.
The above instructions are but a suggestive guide, please always contact your coating manufacturer or local coating supplier for floating requirements.
