How to Apply Exterior Texture Coatings from JPS Coatings?

Surface Preparation

It is the responsibility of the user to prepare the surface before application. For maximum adhesion, keep the substrate clean, sound, and free from powdery residue or unwanted contaminants such as moulds, lichens, oils, and release agents. Remove tie-wires, nails, or steels, and ensure that the surface is corrosion stabilised. JPS Coatings highly recommends priming the surface using the suitable products available for purchase that work harmoniously with the exterior texture coating.


  • Trowel-On Textures - Applied in a hawk and trowel method via stainless steel trowel. While the coating is still moist, use a red or clear plastic trowel to achieve a smooth finish or sponge for a rustic texture. Apply the exterior texture coating during only 7-32 °C temperatures. Avoid coating in unpredictable weather and protect the surface from frost or rain for 48 hours.
  • Roll-On Textures - Applied via a regular, high profile, or coarse roller, starting from the floor and up to to ceiling. After 4-5 widths, re-roll it diagonally to ensure a smoother surface and removing streaks. Apply the material in an upward or downward motion for a seamless finish. Same as the Trowel-On Textures, this coating is also best applied between 7-32°C, avoiding extreme weather, frost, or rain within 48 hours.

Drying and Curing Times

The Trowel-On Textures dry to suit AS 1580, 401.1 in 4 hours, while Roll-On Textures are touch dry within an hour (at 25°C and 50% relative humidity). Drying takes longer at lower temperatures or relative humidity. Both exterior texture coatings hard dry in a week.
