sect. 1.0 Technical characteristics
Spirito Libero is a designer stucco which creates a simple, clean wall brimming with appeal and finesse. It affords maximum breathability, is resistant to alkaline attack and is an excellent anti-mildew and anti-bacterial product due to its very nature; its continuous carbonation process ensures excellent resistance to humidity.
Note: Advanced Spirito Libero recommends that our entire range of lime based natural materials is used only by highly skilled or licensed tradespeople with extensive experience in this field. It is the responsibility of the applicator to understand the application method and the procedure involved ,in order to obtain a satisfactory outcome. Advanced Spirito Libero recommends that architects, builders and clients appoint only experienced applicators in the relevant lime-based materials to ensure they’ll be able to deliver the same finish as per the sample shown. Following the Australian Building Code we do not suggest the installation of this product inside the shower area.
sect. 2.0 Use
Spirito Libero is suitable for decorating indoor wall surfaces.
sect. 3.0 Preparing the surface
Preparing the primer is vital to the success of the coating. It is therefore advisable to use Primus Naturale Spatula Stuhhi.
sect. 4.0 Application method
Spirito Libero is ready for use. To blend the colour, agitate the white base, then, once it has been mixed thoroughly, pour in the quantity of colouring agent specified in the catalogue and mix until the shade obtained is completely even. Before applying it, allow the coloured product to rest for at least 12 hours.

Once the first coat is applied, the process has to be complete within 48h.
sect. 5 Finish
Cera del Vecchio: Mix the product for a couple of minutes before use. Leave the surface to be treated to dry for at least 48 hours. Apply the wax using a cloth, approximately ½ m2 at a time, and remove any excess with a soft cloth. After about 10 minutes, the surface can be polished by wiping over with a clean cloth (microfibre, cotton or linen).
Antichi Sapori: Wax finish, brown in colour. Mix the product for a couple of minutes before use so as to blend the Marseilles soap and the beeswax it contains properly.
Leave the surface to be treated to dry for at least 48 hours. Apply the product with a cloth, and wipe over with a clean cloth after about 15 minutes to enhance the satin finish.
Colore & Gioia, Colore & Oro, White Paint: apply these three products onto the 2 coats of Spirito Libero using a sponge, either in the same shade or in other colours (Colore & Oro, Colore & Gioia). If the products are superimposed, wait between 6 and 8 hours between one coat and another, to guarantee the wall has dried completely.
Vetro: Protective water-based finish. On two coats of Spirito Libero, apply a first coat of Vetro diluted 90% with water, and a second coat undiluted. On Spirito Libero finished with Gioia, Oro or White, a single coat of undiluted product can be applied.
