Building Code Compliance
If the project has a building consent then the following clauses apply.
B1 – Structure
This specification complies with the requirements as set out in B1 – Structure which requires buildings, building elements and sitework to withstand the combination of loads and physical conditions they are likely to experience during construction, alteration and throughout their lives. Loads and physical conditions include self-weight, temperature, water, earthquakes, snow, wind, fire.

Resin/MultiStop Slurry Coat
Ensure surface is clean, sound, dry and free from dust, dirt, grease, mould and lichen.
Mix a solution of Acrylbond and Rockcote MultiStop together and apply using a roller .
For pourous substrates mix a 50:50 mix of acrylbond/water and a 1 kg of MultiStop/Adhesive to the mix.
For painted surfaces ensure the acrylbond is mixed directly with 1 kg of MultiStop/Adhesive.
Rockcote Fast Float Tasman Texture Finish
Plaster is applied not less than 1mm (8m2 per bag) with a steel trowel to a flat finish then float using a circular action to an even texture over the following five minutes with a plastic float. Apply plaster only when the temperature is between 5°C and 30°C and will be in that range for the 24 hours period following application.
Plaster should be protected from hot drying winds and direct sunlight for the first 16 hours. Protect newly applied plaster from rain and water run off for the first 24 hours. It is able to be sealed while the finish is still green.
Resene Limelock Sealer
Apply to trowelled plasters immediately after final trowelling (Dependent on surface porosity, typically 5-8m2 per litre). Apply one coat of Resene Limelock over the fresh substrate by commercial grade knapsack sprayer, spray, long pile roller or brush and allow to dry. Evenly coat all fresh surfaces to ensure uniform curing and that free lime cannot be transferred through weak points.
Resene X200 Paint Finish (2 Coats)
Use a 12-20mm synthetic fibre roller or texturing roller depending on surface. Apply two coats, First coat 2 sq. metres per litre, Second coat: 3.5 sq. metres per litre
