FX Super Base Coat X is a revolutionary joint compound. It has remarkable flexibility, minimal shrinkage and extraordinary strength, outperforming current industry leaders’ compounds, both pre-mixed and dry products. * Its flexibility helps with remediation of hairline cracks due to minor structural movement. It is suitable for substrates such as fibre cement sheeting and Magnum Boards. FX Super Base Coat X is part 1 of a high-performance, integrated compound system. Developed by FX Australia and manufactured locally, the use of all products in the Compound System guarantees a time-saving, superior finish and greater strength for substrates.
Water-based Ease of application
Strong Easy spreading
Water-resistant Easy clean-up
FX Super Base Coat X is used for fixing fibre cement sheets and Magnum Board joints.
All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of dirt, dust and grease. Substrates need to be constructed or installed to industry/Australian Standards.
Load FX Super Base Coat X onto hawke using a 150 mm – 200 mm broad knife/trowel and place in to the joint recess, working steadily from one end to the other of the joint recess, ensuring the Compound fills the joint recess and is evenly and smoothly applied. Next embed fibre-fuse tape into the Compound. Scrape off any excess Compound. Note, for added strength and confidence load FX Super Base Coat X in to the joint recess over the fibrefuse tape, working steadily from one end to the other of the joint recess, ensuring the Compound fills the joint recess and is evenly and smoothly applied. Ensure force is applied to properly embed Compound and fibre-fuse tape into the recess. Allow first coat of FX uper Base Coat X to dry for a minimum of 3–4 hours at 25 °C and 50% humidity. Apply a second coat of FX Super Base Coat X using the same method as the first coat. Ensure the compound is flush with the sheets. Scrape off any excess Compound. Allow to dry for 3–4 hours at 25 °C and 50% humidity before proceeding to product 2, FX Topping Compound X, or proceed straight to water-proofing system or texture-coating system.
Important Note: Clean tools frequently with water and a sponge to stop Compound drying on tools.
