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 Can this be used in a moisture rich environment such as a bathroom.. I have plaster that needs repairing.. some cracking and some bubbling...Answered by the admin
Yes. All loose particles must be removed from the surface and it should be free of mildew or other contaminants. If the areas are chalky they must be sealed with a penetrating surface conditioner.
Q How much should I order for 600 sq ft?Answered by the admin 2 Gallons of #2500 and 1 roll of 48x40 fiberglass mat covers 160 square feet. 6 Gallons of #2500 and 1 roll of 48x120 fiberglass mat covers 480 square feet.
Q I found and watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tex1tQ-ohyc . . They display and use more products than just the Saturant and Fiberglass mat. Will this system still work as well with only the TWO products you offer/sell?Answered by the admin The Nu-Wal Plaster Restoration System is designed to work with the saturant and the fiberglass mat. You can paint with a good quality paint afterwards.
Q We have repairs happening to the underside of the house, which may include jacking up parts of the foundation. Would it be okay to apply the Nu-Wal system prior to slight movement of the house? We are trying to avoid more crack after applicationAnswered by the admin Just to be safe, I would apply it after you finish jacking up parts of your foundation.
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.
