Mapei Quarzolite Tonachino is a flexible fibroreinforced, acrylic rustic effect plaster for internal and external application to protect walls and even out surface imperfections.

Best Uses

Mapei Quarzolite Tonachino is an acrylic resin-based wall plaster with a rustic effect for internal and external applications. This product can be used to decorate and to offer good protection to walls and to even out surface imperfections on walls. May be used to protect and decorate any kind of building, even those which are already painted.

Suitable for decorating all types of cementitious or lime-based render, walls smoothed over with all smoothing products from the MAPEI range, decorating old, well-bonded paintwork, and decorating concrete walls.

Made from acrylic resin in water dispersion, quartz and light-resistant pigments.

  • Quarzolite Tonachino is resistant to all climatic conditions and the aggressive attack of smog, salt and sunlight.
  • Quarzolite Tonachino bonds perfectly to all types of traditional renders and to old, well-bonded paintwork.


Quarzolite Tonachino is also suitable for internal use on gypsum or old painted surfaces if well-bonded and sound, after treatment with Malech or Quarzolite Base Coat. In the case of old, well-bonded painted surfaces, assess whether Malech or Quarzolite Base Coat are really required.

New surfaces or surfaces patched up with repair mortar must be cured, perfectly clean, even and dry. Remove all traces of oil and grease and parts which are not well bonded to the surface. Seal any cracks which are present in the substrate and repair areas which are in poor condition. Seal porosity and level off uneven areas on
the substrate with a mortar and smoothing compound from the MAPEI Building products range. Apply Malech (ready to use) or Quarzolite Base Coat and let them dry for 12 to  24 hours before applying Quarzolite Tonachino.

To make it easier to apply 1.2 mm, 1.5 mm and 2.0 mm grain size Quarzolite Tonachino and to improve its covering properties, Malech may be applied after diluting it with 30-50% of the same colour of Quarzolite Paint, or with a similar coloured coat of Quarzolite Base Coat.

Quarzolite Tonachino is supplied ready for use and just needs to be thoroughly mixed with a drill at low-speed. If required, 1-2% of water may be added if the product
has thickened.

Apply Quarzolite Tonachino with a stainless steel or plastic trowel on Malech or on the dried Quarzolite Base Coat. The protection cycle also includes the application of a coat of Quarzolite Tonachino. Dependant on the grain size of Quarzolite Tonachino and the roughness of the substrate, two coats may be applied to form a perfectly even finish. Apply the second layer after 24 hours, making sure that both layers are spread on evenly. Then smooth the surface with a plastic float with a rotary movement, and vertically and horizontally, to create the finish required. As an alternative, a damp sponge float may be used while the product is still drying to create a more rustic finish. A number of effects may be obtained using Quarzolite Tonachino (such as, brushed finish, bass-relief finish, etc.) as illustrated in the “MAPEI colours in design” pamphlet.
