Advantage of Conventional Spray over Airless is the simplicity and robustness of the equipment with minimum of maintenance required and with the ability to spray material of all types including such that contains “grits” or particles of sizes up to 3 mm.
The Alltek materials are delivered in standard 25 kilo plastic bags as a paste completely ready to use. 40 bags (1000 kilo) are placed on a standard EURO pallet for easy handling by forklift. The plastic bags are practical packing for when using the spray application method. Alltek can also be supplied in 10 or 15 liter plastic buckets suitable for hand application to smaller areas, single rooms or smaller apartments as a preparations coat before final decoration with emulsion paint.
Material consumption over fairfaced concrete, when applied in two coats, is normally between 1,5 - 2,5 kilo per m2, depending on quality of concrete and skill of the applicator.
