Nu-Wal Plaster Restoration System
Makes Walls Look Like New Again
The Nu-Wal system conceals cracks and holes, producing a smooth consistent wall surface that looks like new. It works by covering and reinforcing whole walls and ceilings with an estomeric saturant (#2500 coating) and fiberglass mat which can be painted or papered. Cracks do not re-appear, and the surface resists impacts, abrasions, rot, and decay. The non-flammable material is perfect for indoor use and has no toxic fumes. The Nu-Wall system is durable, long-lasting, and easy to install. Repairing plaster with Nu-Wall conforms to all the requirements of ASTM E-1795 and ASTM E-1797 of liquid coatings for leaded paint in buildings.
- 2 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 40 ft. mat covers 160 sq. ft.
- 6 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 120 ft. mat covers 480 sq. ft.
Customer Questions & Answers
Q I have cracks in the existing plaster that a previous owner painted over. Note, the walls are not lathe. They are a 1930s pressed fiber board with a thick plaster coating. Point being, I assume just the plaster cracked, not the wall board. My question is, do I have to do anything to prepare the cracks? They are above grade, so I assume I must at least scrap them down level to the surface of the wall. Not sure if other preparation is necessary before applying Nu-wal.Answered by the admin
To prepare for Nu-Wal fill the cracks with joint compound, etc., and sand flush with the wall.
Q Is there a product that can clean the application solution off of your hands?Answered by the admin
We don't have a product. You can try hot, soapy water or maybe some rubbing alcohol.
Q How long does it take for the applied solution to set up or dry?Answered by the admin
You should apply the saturant to the area and then fiberglass mat to wet surface. After trimming excess mat at wall meeting, baseboard and/or window, etc, apply the second coat of saturant to wet mat. Allow it to cure 24 - 48 hours before applying a finish coat of paint.
Q Wonderful product; applied to new walls in kitchen and original walls in living room (where 40 year old oil base paint had cracks that normal repair products could not repair). A driving rain caused a living room window leak that got behind the NU-WAL and caused a two foot square series of bubbles. Is there a patch kit that would allow replacing the mat that was ruined?Answered by the admin
No I am sorry, but we do not have a patch kit for that type of repair. We do have our Krack Kote product.
Q How many square ft' per gallon for the saturant. I need slightly more than a 40' roll but definitely don't need 6 gallon of saturant.Answered by the admin
2 gallons of #2500 and 1 roll of 48" x 40' WC-14 fiberglass mat covers 160 square feet.
