TESS
New hybrid finish
outperforms synthetic stuccos
TESS FINISH
TESS Finish is a flexible, breathable  cement finish that repels water, resists dirt pickup and is available in 48 standard colors and four popular textures: Sand, Coarse Sand, Freeform and Limestone. Easy to apply and familiar to use, TESS Finish improves applicator productivity with lighter weight and ease of spread.
• Superior hiding power means greater coverage and higher yields, offering greater value than typical acrylic finishes
• Smooth buttery texture floats easily and sticks to the trowel just like a traditional cement mortar
• Less droppage and waste reduces clean-up
• Freezing protection is not required when properly stored  prior to mixing
• Each 44 pound bag of TESS Finish, mixed with clean, cool, potable water at the job site, makes the equivalent of 5-gallons of acrylic finish
• One 5-gallon pail of TESS Finish weighs 52 pounds, 18% less than a typical acrylic finish, increasing productivity by reducing applicator fatigue
Complies with 2006 International Building Code (IBC) and 2006 International Residential Code (IRC). Meets ICC-ES AC 235 Acceptance Criteria for EIFS Clad Drainage Wall Assemblies and ICC-ES AC11 Acceptance Criteria for Cementitious Exterior Wall Coatings.
