Vega Plaster is a genuine high-quality wall coating for interior and exterior use, formulated to achieve a natural stone, precast look. Vega is a mineral plaster with an elegant, modern-day appearance, composed of lime, cement, and other natural minerals. Applicable in a variety of different textures, this decorative plaster can create many different finishes. The beauty of this plaster is the heavy thickness that allows the creation from smooth-modern to naturally pitted textures. Vega Plaster is a tint-able powder with great adhesion, exceptional durability, and extremely breathable. Vega can produce a natural flat finish to a low sheen finish after burnishing or sanding. Vega is particularly elegant and is designed for precious wall spaces for both residential, and commercial spaces, or any environment where a high-end atmosphere is desired.
Avoid extended skin contact. Use eye protection and breathing apparatus when sanding material. Keep room well ventilated when working indoors.
Use a stainless steel trowel to apply two coats of Vega Plaster.
New Surface – Surface should be clean and dust free. Prime the substrate with the recommended water-based primer as required; such as PVA primer for new drywall, multi-purpose primer for wood or glossy surfaces, and let it dry fully. Next, apply one coat of Meoded Quartz Primer allowing it at least 3-5 hours to dry.
Existing Surface- Any surface with sheen should be sanded, dust free, and then primed with a multi-purpose primer letting it dry fully. Next, apply one coat of Meoded Quartz Primer allowing it at least 305 hours to dry. Preparation of flat surfaces require only the application of Meoded Quartz Primer.
Exterior Brown Coat:
First, surface should be pressure washed and cleaned. When the surface is fully dry, apply Meoded Quartz Primer diluted up to 30% water. Let it dry for at least 3-5 hours.
Vega Plaster should be applied evenly, covering the entire wall.
It is recommended to use a wet sponge or a plastic trowel in a circular motion before the Vega dries to create a more uniform design, expose the aggregate, and eliminate all imperfections. Allow at least 12 hours for the first coat to dry.
Smooth Finish – Apply the second coat in the same manner as the first coat, but this time apply it a bit thicker to embed the large aggregate. Spread the material evenly maintaining the same thickness across the wall. For a smooth finish, smooth the wall with the trowel applying minimal pressure and cleaning off all excess material. If extra smoothing is needed, spray minimal amounts of water before the plaster dries and continue burnishing. Then, let the plaster dry for a minimum of 48 hours before applying a sealer.
Pitted/Precast Textures- Apply the second coat in the same manner as the first coat. Before the plaster dries, use a plastic trowel and stick it onto the wall. Then, in a circular motion, move the trowel to drag the large aggregates and smooth again in the desired areas until finish is achieved.
To enhance the rich appearance of Vega, glazing and sculpturing effects can be applied using standard plastering tools.
Sealing and Clean Up:
Seal the surface after a minimum of 48 hours of dry time, clean up with warm water and avoid letting spillage to dry.
Store material in a dry and dark place, void of humidity, protected againstdamage from weather and direct sunlight. Use within 10 months of production.
Mix 5 gallons (50 lbs) of Golmex powder with approximately 1.5 gallons (192oz) of clean water.
