Resene Limelock

Resene Limelock is a new preparatory coating used for the curing and sealing of cementitious substrates. It promotes cure by producing a water barrier, which unlike traditional curing membranes, may be overcoated with waterborne finishes at any stage. Its ability to cure and seal the substrate eliminates the need to leave the plaster to cure for seven days before painting. When dark, heat absorbing topcoats are planned, it is still prudent to wait seven days before painting. Resene Limelock traps free lime in the cementitious substrate protecting the paint finish against the appearance of unsightly lime staining, and providing a perfect base for subsequent Resene finishes.
