Dryvit DPR Finishes: Dirt Pickup Resistance Finishes
Dryvit DPR Finishes are Quarzputz, Sandblast, Freestyle, Sandpebble, and Sandpebble Fine finishes are premixed 100% acrylic-based coatings which are offered in standard colors as well as custom colors. They provide the finishing touch that adds lasting color and texture to exterior and interior walls. These are the original five finish textures with Dryvit DPR Finishes (dirt pick-up resistant) chemistry that will remain clean longer after application. Questions? Contact Us.
DPR finishes are durable architectural finishes providing surface color and texture for Dryvit systems. These finishes can also be applied over properly prepared substrates such as exterior masonry, stucco, precast or cast-in-place concrete and other approved substrates. The finishes are also suitable for interior applications. All finishes can be trowel applied or spray applied with a hopper gun or pole gun-type sprayer.
Drying Time: Drying of the finishes is dependent on the air temperature, relative humidity and finish thickness. Under average drying conditions [70 °F (21 °C), 55% R. H.], the finish will dry in 24 hours. Lower temperature and higher humidity will require that the DPR finish be protected for longer periods. Protect work from rain during the drying period.
Testing Information: For individual test data on this product’s properties, refer to the chart included with this document.
Job Conditions: Air and surface temperature for application of finishes must be 40 °F (4 °C) or higher and must remain so for a minimum of 24 hours.
Temporary Protection: Shall be provided at all times until the DPR finish is dry, and installation of permanent flashings, sealants, etc. are completed to protect the wall from inclement weather and other sources of damage.
• Quarzputz or Sandblast: using a stainless steel trowel, apply and level a coat of Quarzputz or Sandblast to a uniform thickness (Quarzputz- no thicker than the largest aggregate; Sandblast applied in a thickness of 3/64 in (1.2 mm) – approximately 1 1/2 times the largest aggregate). The textures are achieved by uniform hand motion and/or type of tool used. Maintain wet edge for uniformity of color and texture.
• Sandpebble or Sandpebble Fine: roughly apply an even coat of finish to a thickness slightly thicker than the largest aggregate size. Then pull across the rough application coat using a horizontal trowel motion and develop a uniform thickness no greater than the largest aggregate of the material. The textures are achieved by uniform hand motion and/or type of tool used. Maintain wet edge for uniformity of color and texture.
• Freestyle: using a stainless steel trowel, apply a coat of the Freestyle slightly thicker than 1/16 in (1.6 mm). The texture is either pulled out of this base or achieved by adding more Freestyle finish to the base layer using the same texturing motions that are used with other plaster materials, such as a skip trowel finish. The thickness of any Freestyle finish texture shall not exceed 1/4 in (6.4 mm).
