mix thoroughly ORION before application. This operation is very important and can be done by mechanical tools, until the material is milky and soft. Spread the paste on the wall by stainless trowel. Take out any excess of material, keeping the trowel a little edged, in order to level the thickness. After few minutes, (according to temperature and humidity) press the applied paste to compact it keeping the trowel almost flat on the wall, often cleaning the tool, and keeping it wet by clean water. Do not apply on windy weather, under the sun or rain. Protect the applied wall against rain for at least 24 h. Do not apply when the temperature is lower then 10° or when the temperature is expected to go below +5° in the next 24 h.
Taurus can be protected, to improve water resistance, water repellency and to reduce maintenance, by a coat of solvent based Xilodecor (see data sheet) for exterior application and by water based Vetrificante (see data sheet) satin finish for interior application.
