Decorative stucco «Bark Beelte» Farbex


Decorative stucco «Bark Beelte»

size of grain 2,0-2,5 mm


Ready to use. It creates a weather-resistant coating with low water permeability, resistant to mechanical load, aggressive nature effects and different dirt. It is permeable to vapor, flexible, highly adhesive and can cover small cracks. It is easy to use and to form a structure.

Sphere of application

It is intended for finishing coating with the structure of "bark beetle" when it is applied on porous and gas concrete surfaces, mineral plasters, gypsum boards, concrete, gypsum, isolating systems, stone walls, asbestos cement indoors and outdoors. It is recommended for surfaces with high exploitation load and also for the facade insulation systems.


It can be tinted manually with Pigment Concentrate Farbex Color, other waterborne coloring pastes or with a coloring machine acc. to NCS color range and others.

Application instruction


1. Preliminary preparation

Uncoated surfaces: Clean thoroughly from fragile coatings, dust, oil, grease, and other dirt. New stucco coatings shall not be treated before 2-4 weeks.

Previously coated surfaces: clean the surface thoroughly from old loose coatings (loose paint or varnish) mechanically (a scraper, a wire brush), thermally (hot air dryer, infrared radiation) or chemically (paint removing products). The surface shall be also cleaned of all kinds of dirt. Surfaces previously coated with alkyd or oily enamels shall be sandpapered then apply adhesive primer "Beton-kontakt" TM Farbex. Then treat the surface as an uncoated surface.

Correct non-significant defects of mineral surfaces with Finishing Putty TM Farbex and then sandpaper.

It is recommended to treat the surface with Antiseptic TM Farbex for protection against mould and fungi.

2. Priming

Very absorbing surfaces shall be treated with deep penetrating silicone primer TM Farbex.

Apply obligatory a coat of paint primer with quartz filler TM Farbex. Paint primer shall be tinted in the color of decorative stucco.

Apply a coat of adhesive primer "Beton-kontakt" TM Farbex for difficult base surfaces (see the sphere of application). Adhesive primer shall be tinted in the color of decorative stucco.

3. Applying

Stir thoroughly before use.

The product shall be applied on the surface in 1 layer with a stainless trowel or an appropriate machine for the application. Remove the extra product from the surface right after application making the grain-size thickness layer. Form a structure in 3-5 minutes with a plastic trowel. In accordance with the direction of the tool move (vertical, horizontal or circle like, etc.) different structures of the "bark beetle" are achieved. The time between stucco application and its structuring can vary depending on the temperature and air humidity, the temperature of a base surface, degree of its water absorption and the body of the product. 

If the application is performed manually there shall be two persons as the work on one flat area shall be performed constantly with the "wet to wet" method. The structure of the surface shall be formed with the same instrument on the whole surface. Don't let the edge of the applied product getting dry.

When the product is applied with a machine, its nozzle shall be chosen exactly in accordance with the grain size (nozzle size shall have a diameter of 4 grains). Required working pressure shall be 0.3 - 0.4 MPa (3-4 bar).

The temperature of air and the surface under application shall be from +5 ° С till +30 ° С, maximal relative air humidity shall be 80%.

Do not apply stucco under direct sunlight, strong wind, frost and precipitation.

4. Tool cleaning

Clean tools with water after application. Do not let them dry. Dry product shall be removed  from the tools in mechanical way.

When calculating the area to be painted, you need to subtract the area that will not be painted. (windows, doors, etc.)

Paint consumption may vary depending on dilution and uniformity of application of the paint.
