“A specially formulated lime plaster basecoat”
TAKCOAT™ Platinum™ is a specially formulated lime plaster basecoat that is designed to be installed on sound interior/exterior applications. In addition, our special formula allows you to apply TAKCOAT™ without priming a wall with sanded or acrylic ‘weld’ primer or lath to create a permanent bond.
The unique qualities of TAKCOAT™ Platinum™ allow it to be troweled at pudding-like consistency over any sound interior/exterior walls and then flattened out. Furthermore, TAKCOAT™ Platinum™ reduces the time and labor associated with primer applications and provides the first coat in a two or more coat lime plaster/stucco system. TAKCOAT consists of Hydraulic Lime, Recycled Glass aggregates, and NO VOC additives.
50 lbs bag with a coverage of about 70 ft2 at ⅛” thick.

Suitable substrates include:
- New Drywall finished to level III or greater
- Old, soundly painted Drywall
- Magnesium Board, (MGO)
- Soundly painted masonry
As a general rule, any flexible substrate is unsuited as
a base for TAKCOAT™ Platinum.
TAKCOAT™ Platinum should be mechanically mixed using a drill mixer with a paddle attachment. Approximately 1.25 gallon of water is added per 50 lb unit. Mix well for 3-5 minutes. Adjust final water content carefully to a workable consistency.
The correct consistency for TAKCOAT™ Platinum is as thick as pudding for troweling. 1/3 cup of Borax may be added per a gallon of mixing water to defend against the potential of mold in damp or humid environments.
1-2 hours once mixed with water. Any material that
is mixed with water and left to sit over 12 hours
should be discarded.
TAKCOAT™ Platinum should be misted once after a
24 hour cure time.
8-12 months if kept sealed and away from moisture.
