Packaging:

  •  Arisfor® Bond (liquid component) | Six (6) gallon pail
  •  Arisfor WallGuard® (cement based component) | 50-lb bags
  •  Arisfor® Mesh (fiberglass mesh component) | 475 sq. ft. roll (38 inches x 150 ft.)

SURFACE PREPARATION

All surfaces that are to be coated with Arisfor WallGuard® must be sound and free from any bond obstructing substances such as loose debris, grease, oil and any other contaminates or impeding materials. Sweep away any standing water from application site. Surface and ambient temperature required to be 40˚F (5˚C) and rising.

MIXING

Always pour Arisfor® Bond into the mixing container first.  Gradually add cementitious component and mix with a slow speed drill (400-600 rpms) and high viscosity mixing paddle. Mix ratios range from 4 quarts of Arisfor® Bond to achieve trowel grade consistency and up to 6 quarts of Arisfor® Bond for a slurry consistency for each 50 lb. bag. Mix a minimum of 3-5 minutes to achieve a homogeneous lump-free blend. Let mixture rest for 5-8 minutes prior to application. Remix before beginning application. To keep color consistency, the same mix ratios should be used when mixing additional bags.  DO NOT MIX WITH WATER.   

APPLICATION

Arisfor WallGuard® may be applied by brush, roller, trowel, or spray. Apply one layer of WallGuard® to substrate and then embed the mesh, working from the center to the edges, while mixture is still wet. Lightly use trowel to fully encapsulate mesh. The base material should be approximately 1/16” to 1/8” thick. Additional layers may be applied to ensure mesh is uniformly covered and the desired finish is achieved. Dries to the touch in 2-4 hours. Clean tools with water before product permanently adheres. Floors, windows, metal door frames or any surface not intended to be coated, should be wiped clean using a wet cloth within minutes of application to avoid permanent adhesion.

LIMITATIONS

  • Moving cracks may reflect in finished product
  • Do not apply over expansion joints
  • Product working time is approximately 45 minutes at 70˚F  (21˚C).

HELPFUL TIPS

  • Start in the middle of project and work outward
  • Clean tools periodically with clean water throughout application process & clean fully at end
  • When trowelling, keep tools coated with liquid bond.
  • A spray bottle of liquid bond is recommended. If material sets rapidly, spray on liquid bond to refresh wet material to achieve desired finish.
  • DO NOT MIX WITH WATER
