Terrastone for flooring will soon be available in our store. At the moment we supply it only upon request.
Terrastone Rustique Floor is a floor filler available in all Terrastone colors. It is very similar in look and feel to Terrastone Original fine. By adding a bag of the Twenty Mica when troweling the 2nd layer, Terrastone Rustique Floor looks very similar to the Terrastone Original coarse product.
Terrastone Rustique Floor is suitable for lightly used floors.
Important: The substrate must be very well prepared, as cracks that form in the substrate will be visible in the Terrastone floor surface.
It is essential to leave a joint (e.g. by using an edge insulation strip) against the wall to prevent stress cracks!
The substrate must be clean, solid, level and mineral.
It should be filled with a crack-bridging fiber-reinforced filler to prevent possible microcracks.
Note: We do not recommend a so-called Ditra mat, which is popular for tile work. This is too soft for a trowelled floor and promotes microcracking.
The primer is applied with Terrabase 4.
2.5 kg is sufficient for 6-16 sqm
Mixing Terrastone Rustique Floor
2 Layers are used for the application.
Terrastone Rustique Floor (one container 15 kg) is mixed with Liquid Rustique Floor (5 liters for 15 kg of Rustique Floor).
If necessary, up to 15% more liquid can be added (the consistency will therefore be thinner).
Terra Base 12 glass fiber can be added to the 1st coat. This gives more protection against micro cracks. (Ratio: 250g bag per 15kg bucket).
Tip: When working alone, always mix only a 1/3 bucket.
Application of Terrastone Rustique Floor
The mixed Terrastone Rustique Floor is applied with a Venician trowel and roughly smoothed. Layer thickness is 1-2mm.
Allow to dry at 20 degrees for about 5-6 hours.
Apply 1 coat of Terraskin 16, diluted 1:2 with water.
Coverage: 1.0l Terra Skin 16 is sufficient for approx. 15sqm.
The mixed Terrastone Rustique Floor is applied with a Venetian trowel and roughly smoothed. Layer thickness is 1-2mm.
Allow Terrastone Rustique Floor to dry slightly and place smooth Styrodur boards on the Terrastone. The Terrastone will not stick to these plates once it has dried sufficiently. Now you can smooth the Terrastone with the Venizian trowel. If necessary, the slabs can be moved and smoothed elsewhere.
Required Use: Terrastone Rustique Floor with 2 coats: 5-6 kg.
Apply 1 coat of Terra Skin 16, diluted 1:2 with water (absorb and remove excess after 5 minutes with a lint-free cloth!).
Range: 1.0l Terra Skin 16 is enough for approx. 20-22 sqm.
Allow to dry for 2 hours
Apply 1 coat of Terra Skin 3N Natural Oil

Allow to dry for 24 hours
Apply 1 coat of Terraskin 10 Floor Wax with the plastic trowel
