ProRoc 1 Coat Application

We have received a lot of interest and positive feedback regarding the new 1 coat application technique. Whilst the original 2 coat process is still successfully used, the new ProRoc K formula and the use of OX Tools’s plastic Speedskims, allows for this 1 coat process to deliver more meters in shorter timeframes.

Multifinish Australia visited Wayne De Graaf (M & W Plastering) on site to create a short video of the new 1 coat process they are using. See video below and subscribe to Multifinish Australia’s youtube channel for more educational material.

Training in the one coat method is provided free of charge. On completion you will be registered as a Multifinish Australia accredited applicator for Saint-Gobain plaster products.

Renovation Project: The Coastal Tree House

Multifinish Australia was kindly invited to join Regency Plastering for a day as he was completing the internal finish of the Coastal Tree House by Ascher Smith.

Dave from Regency Plastering set out to go over an old dark brick wall with Pro Roc Base Coat and Pro Roc Multifinish. This particular renovation sought a different finish, where the ProRoc Multifinish was to be left unpainted, only to be sealed, for an interior Spanish feel if you wish. The living room and dining area has already been completed in this fashion, now it was time for the dark brick wall in the kitchen/living room to be covered.

This project highlights the use of our Pro Roc Base Coat, which was applied straight on to the red brick walls. Dave did two layers of the Pro Roc Base Coat, followed by two coats of Pro Roc Multifinish. He likened the process to applying 4 coats of set, and said that these products are ideal for renovations as all four layers can be applied in one day.

Site Visit from Saint-Gobain in Perth, WA.

A few weeks ago Saint-Gobain representatives from the UK, and Spain visited Site Training and Accreditation Sessions in the Perth Metro Area. The training was very well perceived and appreciated, and is an important process in introducing ProRoc Multifinish to the Australian Plastering industry. Feedback has been very positive both from Saint-Gobain and from plasterers undertaken training in Western Australia. Exciting to see ProRoc Multifinish entering the Australian market.
