'Alltek' is a quickly and simply applied internal finish for walls and ceilings, designed to replace thin coat plaster.

The benefits of 'Alltek' include:

  • Eliminates batten and slabbing of ceilings when used directly onto the Flood Wide Slab Soffit.
  • No water or mixing required on site.
  • Fast application and dries normally within 24 hours.
  • Reduces programme time.
  • High quality of smooth or textured finish available.
  • Excellent adhesion to most substrates.
  • Light weight.

Appearance

'Alltek' dries to an even matt colour. Before setting, the surface may be levelled smooth with a special steel edged tool or may be left with varying degrees of texture. The texture depends on the adjustment of the spray nozzle air pressure and the grade of Alltek used.

Ceiling preparation

Given that our slabs are 2.40m wide you will have only half the number of joints compared to a hollowcore installation. These joints are simply filled in with Alltek dry filler and then feathered 150mm out from the joint. Once the joints are filled we can provide an 'Alltek' finish which is spray applied in a range of textured and smooth finishes. The 'Alltek' finish will provide a perfect ceiling finish whilst painting is recommended, it is at the discretion of the client who may wish to leave the textured Alltek unpainted. Both of these finish types when applied are in extensive use in apartment and hotel development throughout the country.

Grades

Alltek is available in the following grades, their use depending upon the finish required and/or the unevenness of the surface to be treated.

Grades Description
'Alltek' Extra Coarse with particle sizes up to 1200 microns, is used on surfaces which require heavy filling and levelling, prior to finishing with Alltek Fine.
'Alltek' Coarse with particle sizes up to 600 microns, is the universal material for direct application to fair face concrete surfaces and gypsum board, for subsequent decoration if required. It is also used for providing a textured finish which does not require decoration.
'Alltek' Fine with particle sizes up to 300 microns, is the universal material for direct application to fair face concrete surfaces and gypsum board, for subsequent decoration, if required. It is also used for providing a textured finish which does not require decoration on ceilings and soffits.
'Alltek' Superfine with particle sizes up to 100 microns, is for final coats where an ultra smooth surface is necessary, for instance where gloss paint is to be used, or where various textured, combed and stippled finishes are required.
