Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked question on textures

How much area does the product cover?

The product covers 5 - 6 square feet per kilogram for 2 coats.

Can we use a thinner to dilute the paint?

We do not recommend using a thinner since no dilution is required in the paint.

What is the application procedure for this paint?

Before painting you need to first, clean the surface properly to remove dirt, chalk, dust and particles of previous paint. This can be done by scraping your walls with a wire brush and cleaning with water. We recommend that you allow freshly plastered surfaces to cure properly with water for at least 4 weeks before painting. With regards to the painting procedure, below are the steps to be followed:

1) Apply Asian Paints Wall Putty (optional). Mix water in the Putty based on your requirement to form a paste. Allow the surface to dry for 4 hours.

2) Apply Exterior Wall Primer by mixing 900 - 1100 ml. of water. If using a spray, you need to mix 400 - 450 ml. of water. Allow surface to dry for 4 hours. (Application of primer is mandatory in case of re-painting. Horizontal surfaces like top of windows or ledges should be painted with 3 coats of Apex Ultima for greater protection).

3) Apply the first coat of Ultima Allura Venezio (No dilution required). Apply it with a Steel Trowel. After application, allow the surface to dry for 12 - 16 hours.

4) Lastly, apply 2 - 3 coats of Asian Paints Apex Ultima/Apex/Apex Ultima Metallic. You can apply this with a brush, spray or roller by mixing 400 ml of water. Allow the surface to dry for 4 - 6 hours.
