VenetianStone is an engineered venetian plaster application made from milled quartz, marble and OPC/HAC polymer cement to resemble the noble marble as was used by Venetians.
In Venice, a city built on wooden poles, heavy building materials could only be used as far as they had a load bearing function to the structure of the building. Thus the challenge for the Venetian decorators was to find a finish as similar as possible to the heavy noble marble. The result of the work of generations of Venetian decorators is what we know today as Venetian plaster.
The coating system realises a smooth, rustic and mottled look. The versatility and design possibilities are endless in transforming floors, walls and even concrete counter tops into something truly unique.
Area of application
VenetianStone, fit for walls & floors, interior & exterior and can be applied over level concrete, cement screeds, plaster, fiber cement board and even tiles with correct preparation. A standard screed or plaster installation as in accordance to general building practices is acceptable to receive VenetianStone. The requirement is a subfloor with hardness of at least 25MPa and pull-off adhesion of 1.5MPa or greater for best performance.
