Polymer putty for interior work: Species features
Any repair necessarily ends up creating a mood in the room. To achieve a complete look, wallpapers and paints help. But the effect of the holiday can be ruined, if one of the stages of finishing works was deliberately or ignorantly missed.
Thanks to putty, you can prepare any surface for painting or pasting wallpaper. As it has been repeatedly proved: on the most smooth walls, the ceiling and the floor, the paint and the wallpaper glue fall much better, which is a real opportunity to save on construction materials.
The bonding component of the putty is decisive when choosing.
The main and common types include solutions on gypsum or cement basis. But every year, more and more popular are putty, the basis of which are polymer binders.
Today, two groups are distinguished: acrylic and latex.
This variety is considered universal, because it can be used for both interior decoration and for ennobling the facade of buildings. This putty - an ideal option for roughing and finishing.
They can be used only for interior decoration of premises.
But according to technical characteristics they are similar:
- High strength of the machined surface;
- Durability of operation;
- Easy to apply;
- No odor.
Regardless of the composition, you can purchase ready-made filler or dry mix. The first option is several times more expensive than the second. Your choice depends on what you would like to save: time or money. The mixture is much cheaper. It is enough just to dilute it with water according to the instructions on the package.
Dry putty is filled up in batches in water, where mixing occurs, but not in the reverse order.
Putty should be applied only on the prepared surface, after cleaning it from dirt, grease, old finish and oil stains. Do not forget to prime. And only after these preliminary stages of work can you go to puttying. After drying the putty, the paint is laid flat and easy, the process of painting the surfaces and pasting the wallpaper is much easier.
Polymer cement filler: technical data
For repair of cracks, depressions, base defects, polymer cement putty is ideal. What is it and how does it differ from all other solutions?
Its main difference from polymer putties is the possibility of applying a layer of up to 20 mm
This mixture is used for the repair and leveling of plasterboard and concrete, brick and cement surfaces. It consists of cement and lime, mineral and organic additives.
Thanks to these main constituents of polymer cement putty, it has several advantages:
- Quickly hardens;
- Water repellent;
- Resistant to reagents;
- Microfiber reinforced;
- Convenient and easy to use;
- Environmentally friendly
- Its correct application guarantees super-strong alignment;
- Solves problems with finishing unheated and damp rooms;
- Allows you to adjust the thickness of the layer, depending on the amount of deviation of the walls along the vertical;
- After drying, it does not form cracks.
Polymer cement shpaklevka cold to the touch, it is better to apply over plaster mesh. But, in spite of its universality, it is better to choose another putty mixture for floor treatment, since it is not possible to do this with a polymer-cement mixture.
Universal polymer mesh for plastering
If this repair in your apartment is not the first, then you probably know that the walls and ceiling only seem smooth and the preparatory finishing work can be skipped. Such a delusion can be forgiven for beginners, but not experienced masters. Even a small cavity or seam, a bulge or a crack can nullify all your efforts. Therefore, before proceeding with the final work, carefully level the surfaces with a putty. And only after it dries you can get paint or wallpaper with glue.
Often, walls and ceilings need additional reinforcement. To do this, you will need to apply a polymeric mesh to the surface during the plastering work.
The polymer mesh can be used for interior and exterior work.
It has many advantages.
. We list only a few of them:
- Frost resistance;
- Resistance to environmental influences
In finishing work, in addition to calculating the necessary building material, one must take into account own strengths and capabilities. For an irreproachable finish, some of the work can be delegated to professionals.
Can I apply polymer filler to gypsum
In most cases, experts do not recommend applying polymer filler on top of gypsum. The reason is simple: the use of several types of putty will necessarily affect the quality of the finishing works. It is better to choose any one solution.
It often happens that there is simply no other way out. Ask a specialist how to proceed in your case. The best option that can be offered to you: mix two types of putty mixes, than apply one kind of putty on the other.
Before starting to finish the walls, it is necessary to clean the surfaces of the old mortar. This step guarantees a better result.
Also builders recommend adhering to the rules of compatibility of plaster and putty mixes. Compliance with these simple rules will help you achieve an ideal result.
There are not many of them:
- Carefully study the certificate and instruction, pay attention to the pH level. Do not apply a solution with a lower value to a solution with a higher value.
- Gypsum plaster does not tolerate the proximity of cement plaster. In this case, a gypsum or polymer putty is better;
- If you level the surfaces with cement plaster, then you can use any kind of puttying solution.
- The strength of the substrate should be higher than the strength of the putty.
- Take into account the vapor permeability of the plaster and the characteristics of the room.
What is special can happen otherwise?
First of all - the lower permeability of the putty compared to the vapor permeability of the plaster can cause:
- Deterioration of the microclimate of the room;
- Scuffing of putty;
- Rupture of the putty layer.
Following these simple rules, you will get the desired result without any negative consequences.
Than to wash polymeric shpaklevku with PVC tiles
It is no accident that they say that repairs are three fires. One cleaning is worth it: clean the floor of the effects of whitewashing, painting, pasting and other works. Of course, it will be better to clean everything up at once, but can you keep an eye on everything, being carried away by the creative process of transforming the house. But, nevertheless, all works are safely completed and it's time to clean.
Specialists of cleaning services warn that the polymer putty is laundered very difficult. To avoid using chemical and special acidic products that are toxic to humans and can damage PVC tiles, it is better to lay an oilcloth on the floor beforehand, fixing it with a paint tape.
The most effective cleaning agents are those containing acid.
