How to Apply

Application Guide Dulux AcraTex Spray-On 2mm is applied in two passes using a DULUX AcraTex hopper gun. Thin slightly with water to aid application of the first pass, to form a low profile motley base completely covering the substrate. Apply the second pass unthinned at 60% cover to achieve the required finish. GUn set up uses a 4mm to 6mm fluid nozzle set at 50-60 psi for the first pass and 30-40 psi for the second pass. For full details refer to individual Duspec Product and AcraTex Applicational Data Sheets. For full details refer to individual Duspec Product and AcraTex Applicational Data Sheets.
