  • Respects the theory by Kuenzle.



Coccio Pesto is formed of selected powder of ground roof tile, lime and additives that allow an easy processing and an excellent surface grip. Coccio Pesto has a great breathability and a good alkali and mold resistance.


Base preparation and application cycles

After preparing the base, apply one layer of Coccio Pesto (1.2-1.5 mm granulometry) with a steel trowel. While it is drying, throw it with a sponge or a plastic trowel depending on the desired effect. If the granulometry is 0.6 let the first layer dry and after about 16 hours apply another layer throwing it with a sponge or a plastic trowel. Wet the support during the hottest months.
Apply Idrocem-A to protect the surface of Coccio Pesto and make it water resistant, after 20 days from the application.

  • Apply the material only over seasoned and dry plasters.
  • Avoid the application on facades with full sun and too much wind.
  • Avoid the application during the coldest and most humid months of the year; a temperature of +5 °C is the lowest value for the laying-up and drying of the material.
  • After applying, the surfaces must be protected by rain for at least 48 hours.
  • Avoid the application of the material over a facade in different times.

Coccio Pesto must be used at its original status without adding other materials.
