Tadelakt is a shiny mineral plaster for water resistant surfaces in traditional Moroccan style. Its surface is burnished with a smooth polished stone. The result is an expressive, shiny surface of warm, velvety feel.
To be applied in 2 layers on mineral plasters. For the interior only.
The circular polishing movements produce the typical slight cloudiness of Tadelakt.
Tadelakt is water resistant. The final treatment with an olive oil soap makes the surface water repellent, caused by a reaction between the soap and the fresh lime.
Nevertheless Tadelakt is not completely impermeable. This makes Tadelakt suitable for decorative surfaces in splash water areas. Not recommended for showers, wash basins and bathtubs. Longer moistened areas absorb water and become dark temporarily.
This is normal and once dry the surface brightens again.
In areas of abrasionTadelakt will develop traces over time that reflect its unique appearance.
Tadelakt is not suitable for floors.
Tadelakt is a very demanding craft technique.
To achieve the characteristic appearance and perfect functional surface good craftsmanship and experience is essential.
Therefore we periodically offer seminars on the processing
of Tadelakt. We can also help you to find an experienced
craftsman. Please feel free to ask us any time.
