Sand Blends:
Smooth Style Exterior Stucco Finish contains a blend of fine aggregates designed to provide smooth, semi-smooth or Santa Barbara type finishes. (For Santa Barbara style finishes that require greater visual depth or surface contrast - use Western Fine Exterior Stucco.)

Coverage:
Coverage will vary due to thickness of the finish and condition of brown coat.  Smooth finishes are applied in a scratch and double back style to  approximately 1/8” – estimated total coverage is 10 to 15 square yards.

Substrate:
Portland cement brown coats for Fine, Smooth or Santa Barbara style finishes shall be level and hard floated.  Care shall be taken to avoided cat faces and other imperfections that will reflect through the finish.  Both Sanded Premium Western 1-Kote and TOP GUN Premium Sanded Plaster are excellent substrates for Smooth Style Exterior Stucco Finish.

Mixing Premixed Smooth Style Exterior Stucco:
Add enough water for one sack to the mixer.  Add the first sack of finish to the water in the mixer and allow the sack to mix for approx 5 minutes.  Add each additional sack to the mixer by adding half the required water first - then the sack – then the remaining water.  Do not over thin the mix.  Add the final sack to the batch, adding enough water to bring the complete batch to a working consistency.  Allow the complete batch to mix for 15 to 20 minutes after the last sack has been added.

Mixing Base and Color Pak with Smooth Style Exterior Stucco:
Add enough water for one sack to the mixer.    Add the first sack of finish to the water in the mixer and all the color paks for the batch.  Add each additional sack to the mixer by adding half the required water first - then the sack – then the remaining water.  Do not over thin the mix.  Add the final sack to the batch, adding enough water to bring the complete batch to a working consistency.  Allow the complete batch to mix for 15 to 20 minutes after the last sack has been added.

Application:
Prior to application of Smooth Style Exterior Stucco Finish, the base coat shall be sprayed with clean water to control and equalize water absorption.

Trowel on the first coat of Smooth Style Exterior Stucco Finish then double back over that coat to a total finish thickness of approximately 1/8”.  Mottling of the finish is achieved by water troweling.  Do not over trowel.  Over troweling will cause the finish to blister and reduce adhesion. 

Curing:
Smooth Style Exterior Stucco Finish requires moist curing in hot, dry or windy conditions.  Cementitious base coats and finishes are high pH surfaces.  When paint coatings are applied – follow manufacturers' recommendations for pH compatibility.
