FX Australia® Product Information
(Interior & Exterior)
FX Maximus® is a tough membrane coating producing a distinctive, highly textured Mediterranean finish. Because it is available in three grades – Fine, Medium and Coarse – FX Maximus® is suited to both interior and exterior use.
Excellent water resistant ability
Ease of application
FX Maximus® can be used on a wide variety of surfaces, including plaster, plasterboard, cement blocks, bare-faced brick and cement render.
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust, grease, loose or flaking paint, and loose surface plaster. Efflorescence or mould on masonry or concrete surfaces must be treated. Flatten gloss surfaces by thoroughly sanding and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Then apply FX Lemon Tree Creek® Sealer Undercoat on unpainted surfaces.
Note: Best results are achieved on smooth, well-prepared surfaces.
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer, using an upward action, or ideally use a power-driven mixing paddle.
Apply 1–2 coats with a brush, 22 mm–32 mm roller, or textured roller. Or, for a rustic or bagged effect, apply with a mitt.
