This is the First step in our Tadelakt System that provides a junction between your waterproofing layer and the 100% natural basecoat layer. The Adhesion coat ensures a strong bond to the waterproofing or quartz primer over drywall etc ensuring an authentic install and a traditional look. The Tadelakt adhesion coat is applied with a trowel and then raked horizontally using an 1/8th inch v notch groove trowel or stucco Scarifer. These tools will ensure a constant depth is achieved and provides a solid key for the basecoat plaster to set into as it does not have any man made polymers to provide extra adhesion. 

Tadelakt Adhesion Coat is made of White cement, sand, pozzolan, polymers, rheology modifiers etc and is not 100% natural. No Tadelakt system for modern materials can be used without an adhesion coat unless you are willing to make the entire area with sand and cement and allow to dry and cure for a min of 30 days.
