Surface Preparation

Remove all loosely adhering material from the wall surface with the help of emery stone, putty blade or wire brush and clean water. The substrate should be clean, free from dust, grease and loose materials. Dry and absorbent surfaces should be moistened with sufficient quantity of clean water. After plastering allow to dry the surface at least 8-12 weeks for new walls.

Mixing of Wallputty

Mix VEMBANAD wall putty with 30-35 % clean water slowly to make a paste. Continue the mixing for 10-15 minutes till a uniform paste is formed. It should be used within 2 to 3 hours of preparation. Mixing may be done manually or by using a suitable electric mixer.


Ensure that surface is totally clean. The surface should be moderately rough and in just wet condition. Apply 1 st coat of VEMBANAD wall putty using a blade on the wall with a bottom to up configuration. Apply 2nd coat of VEMBANAD wall putty preferably after 10 hours in summers and 12 hrs in winters. Make sure that the wall is perfectly dried before applying second coat. Second coat shall be applied horizontally to even out application marks of 1st coat, if any. The total thickness of the coats should be limited to maximum 1.5 mm. Always prepare a required quantity of putty and use it within 2-3 hrs of mixing with water. Allow complete drying for 3 days and then use a fine emery paper (not less than 500 numbers) to remove application marks, if any.


Use the thinned mixture within 3 hrs. The total thickness of the 2 coats should be limited to maximum 1.5 mm. Wall putty should be done over fully cured surface. Avoid inhalation during mixing and handling.
