Mix waterproof wall putty with 30-35% clean water by a trowel or paddle type mixer (250-400 rpm) to a smooth- consistency. Mixing time shall be 10-15 minutes depending on the quantity of material and mixing method. For better results, keep mixing the material frequently during application as well.

Freshly mixed waterproof wall putty should be applied on moist surface in a thin layer with the help of a putty-blade or steel trowel. It is essential that the application is done from bottom to upwardly direction with the putty blade or steel trowel. Allow the surface to dry for at least 4-6 hour and apply the second coat as mentioned above. After drying of second coat, allow it to dry for 3-4 days before the application of paint. If required, treated surface can be sanded with 320 no. sand paper before application of paint. Maximum 2-3 coats can be applied but the thickness of each coat should not be more then 1mm. Generally, overall coating thickness of 1 to 1.5mm is advisable for putty application. Allow 4-6 hours in between coats.
