Each of our additives have been carefully selected and are imported from Japan. They can be added to any of the Elements and Universe finishes to customize walls for the most discerning individualist. We suggest that you try the additive of your choice with a sample kit and create different intensities to find the right one for your lifestyle.

Each bag of additives is pre-measured for each bag of Satori Japanese Wall Finish except for Mica, for which one 500g bag is typically enough for 5 bags of Satori Finish. Satori Mica is calcined and will not bleed into the finish. You can expect to achieve the look in the samples with this measurement, however, we always recommend you make your own samples as application methods can alter the results. If you want an especially intense look, you can use more additives.

Additives can protrude outside of the finish and make cleaning more difficult. The Satori Lifestyle Finish can be used over additives and can improve durability and stain resistance as well as make walls gently washable. Care should be taken when cleaning over exposed additives.

These beautiful additives give you many possibilities to create unique walls for any contemporary environment.

JOB CONDITIONS 

Environmental Requirements: 

  • Maintain room temperatures at not less than 32 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Provide ventilation in enclosed areas where coating is being prepared and applied to allow materials to properly cure. 
  • Take precautionary measures necessary to ensure that excessive temperature changes do not occur during application and curing. 
  • Cold Weather Requirements: Do not apply sand coating unless a minimum room temperature of 32 degrees Fahrenheit has been and continues to be maintained for a minimum of 48 hours prior to application and until the coating is cured. 
  • Maintain humidity levels below 50% to facilitate normal drying conditions. Do not use mechanical fans to expedite drying, doing so may cause cracks to develop. 

Protection: 

  • Cover building openings in areas adjacent to coating work with plastic film. 
  • Protect finished surfaces installed prior to coating application by covering surfaces with a suitable non-staining material. Cover metal frames with plastic film. 
  • Maintain protection in place until completion of coating work.

NEW CONSTRUCTION 

Gypsum Board, Sheetrock, Drywall, Mortar Board & Cement board 

We recommend a Level 4 wall surface be achieved prior to applying the finish 

  • Scrape off loose materials and flaking materials that would impair coating bonding. 
  • Clean and dry surface. 
  • Provide protection over adjacent surfaces. 
  • Tape all joints with the appropriate tape and method for the primer selected.
  • After the selected primer has dried and prior to applying finish, remove any dust or debris. 

Note: Consider the recommended thickness for each of the following primers and be sure to prepare and sand the substrate after taping joints accordingly. Wipe clean any dust or debris which may impair the bonding of primers and cause delamination. Make sure the primer chosen will sufficiently cover the entire prepared board and create a smooth uniform level 4 surface. 

Apply one of the following primers approved by Shikoku International Corporation: 

  • SKPT according to instructions supplied by Shikoku International Corp. SKPT contains a sealer.
  • Water based acrylic primer/sealer such as Zinsser 1-2-3 primer/sealer, mixed with commercial grade 30 mesh sand using a 5 to 1 ratio of primer/sealer to sand.
  • Veneer Basecoat – if using veneer basecoat it is recommended that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use veneer plaster boards, typically referred to in the industry as “blue board”, made with specially coated paper backing formulated to bond with veneer basecoat. However, if you are using regular sheetrock, gypsum, drywall, mortar boards or cement boards, use a plaster bonding agent, available at home improvement stores. Failure to use a plaster bonding agent may result in delamination. Make sure the bonding agent is compatible with your particular substrate. You should follow the instructions provided by each of the product’s manufacturers.

    Note: Ideally, Satori plaster finish should be applied 24 hours after veneer basecoat is applied. If applying after 36 hours or if the veneer basecoat becomes very dry, the resulting suction will make it more difficult to apply the finish and will also use more product, decreasing square footage. Applying an approved acrylic sealer over the basecoat will decrease suction and improve application. 

BRICK OR CEMENT BLOCK WALL 

We recommend a Level 4 wall surface be achieved prior to applying the finish 

Verify surface is free of defective conditions such as cracks, laitance, efflorescence, and other conditions which may affect coating bonding. 

Remove such defective conditions as follows. 

  1. Cracks 
    1. Cut V-groove over cracks larger than hair cracks. 
    2. Remove dust, debris, paints, and loose objects with wire brush or sander. 
    3. Use a plaster bonding agent, available at home improvement stores. Make sure the bonding agent is compatible with your particular substrate. You should follow the instructions provided by each of the product’s manufacturers. Failure to use a plaster bonding agent may result in delamination. 
    4. Apply veneer basecoat over entire designated area to create a smooth uniform surface. 
    5. Remove any dust or debris from veneer basecoat after it has dried. 
    6. Cure veneer basecoat for 24 hours and ideally apply finish coating within 24-36 hours of veneer basecoat application. 
  2. Efflorescence & Laitance 
    1. Remove efflorescence with tools such as wire brush and sander. 
    2. Remove dust, debris, paints, and loose objects with wire brush or sander. 
    3. Use a plaster bonding agent, available at home improvement stores. Make sure the bonding agent is compatible with your particular substrate. You should follow the instructions provided by each of the product’s manufacturers. Failure to use a plaster bonding agent may result in delamination. 
    4. Apply veneer basecoat over entire designated area to create a smooth uniform surface. 
    5. Remove any dust or debris from veneer basecoat after it has dried. 
    6. Cure veneer basecoat for 24 hours and ideally apply finish coating within 24-36 hours of veneer basecoat application. 

Note: Ideally, the Satori plaster finish should be applied 24 hours after veneer basecoat is applied. If applying after 36 hours or if the veneer basecoat becomes very dry, the resulting suction will make it more difficult to apply the finish and will also use more product, decreasing square footage. Applying an approved acrylic sealer over the basecoat will decrease suction and improve application.

REMODELING 

Impermeable surfaces such as marble, plastic, steel and wood surfaces are not appropriate for plaster finish application and should be completely removed and a new substrate prepared prior to beginning application.

Wallpaper 

  • We recommend a Level 4 wall surface be achieved prior to applying the finish 
  • Remove old Wallpaper 
  • Scrape off loose materials and flaking materials that would impair coating bonding. 
  • Clean and dry surface 
  • Provide protection over adjacent surfaces. 

Apply one of the following primers approved by Shikoku International Corporation:

  • SKPT according to instructions supplied by Shikoku International Corp. SKPT contains a sealer.
  • Water based acrylic primer/sealer such as Zinsser 1-2-3 primer/sealer, mixed with commercial grade 30 mesh sand using a 5 to 1 ratio of primer/sealer to sand.
  • Veneer Basecoat – 
    • Remove efflorescence with tools such as wire brush and sander. 
    • Remove dust, debris, paints, and loose objects with wire brush or sander. 
    • Use a plaster bonding agent, available at home improvement stores. Make sure the bonding agent is compatible with your particular substrate. You should follow the instructions provided by each of the product’s manufacturers. Failure to use a plaster bonding agent may result in delamination. 
    • Apply veneer basecoat over entire designated area to create a smooth uniform surface. 
    • Cure veneer basecoat for 24 hours and ideally apply finish coating within 24-36 hours of veneer basecoat application. 
    • Remove any dust or debris over basecoat with wire brush. 
    • Note: Ideally, the Satori plaster finish should be applied 24 hours after veneer basecoat is applied. If applying after 36 hours or if the veneer basecoat becomes very dry, the resulting suction will make it more difficult to apply the finish and will also use more product, decreasing square footage. Applying an approved acrylic sealer over the basecoat will decrease suction and improve application. 

Painted Walls 

We recommend a Level 4 wall surface be achieved prior to applying the finish 

Note: Consider the recommended thickness for each of the following primers before making your selection. You want to make sure the primer chosen will sufficiently cover the entire wall and create a smooth uniform level 4 surface. A good rule of thumb is that if the wall is very smooth with little to no imperfections, an approved roll on acrylic primer sealer mixed with sand is probably sufficient. If the wall is lightly textured, such as in a knock down type paint texture, SKPT is probably sufficient. If the wall is more heavily textured, veneer basecoat is the best choice. 

  • Scrape off loose materials and flaking materials that would impair coating bonding. 
  • Clean and dry surface 
  • Provide protection over adjacent surfaces. 

Apply one of the following primers approved by Shikoku International Corporation:

  • SKPT according to instructions supplied by Shikoku International Corp. SKPT contains a sealer.
  • Water based acrylic primer/sealer such as Zinsser 1-2-3 primer/sealer, mixed with commercial grade 30 mesh sand using a 5 to 1 ratio of primer/sealer to sand.

    • Cure veneer basecoat for 24 hours and ideally apply finish coating within 24-36 hours of veneer basecoat application. 
    • Remove any dust or debris from veneer basecoat with wire brush. 
    • Note: Ideally, the Satori plaster finish should be applied 24 hours after veneer basecoat is applied. If applying after 36 hours or if the veneer basecoat becomes very dry, the resulting suction will make it more difficult to apply the finish and will also use more product, decreasing square footage. Applying an approved acrylic sealer over the basecoat will decrease suction and improve application. 

Plaster

Shikoku International Corporation does not recommend applying over stucco due to the risk of exfoliation or separation of stucco from the wall substrate. 

Note: Consider the recommended thickness for each of the following primers before making your selection. You want to make sure the primer chosen will sufficiently cover the entire wall and create a smooth uniform level 4 surface. A good rule of thumb is that if the wall is very smooth with little to no imperfections, an approved roll on acrylic primer sealer mixed with sand is probably sufficient.

Notice: Satori optional additives are intended for use with Satori Elements and Universe finishes only. Carefully read the Substrate Preparation Manual and Application Manual for the finish being used before mixing or applying product. The below procedure is for the additive portion only and does not explain the entire application process. 

Satori additives are packaged as follows for one full bag or case of Elements or Universe plaster. Samples in the Elements and Universe brochures contain the following amounts of each additive so that you may judge the amount of additives you would like to add to either intensify or create a subtler effect. 

Additive
Qty of each package
Standard Recommendations
Straw
15g
Test sample with 1/3 to 1/2 bag of straw to start with and then determine straw density desired up to full 15g bag. Light colors or colors which contrast greatly with the straw color, usually require less straw to get the desired effect.
Silky Fibers
5g
100% of 5g package per full bag of plaster
Seashells
300g
100% of 300g package per full bag of plaster
Glass beads
500g
50% of 500g package per full bag of plaster 
Mica
500g
50g to 80g package per full bag of plaster


Note: Elements and Universe are sold in cases of 5 bags per case. The above additive quantities are recommendations to achieve the effects shown in our brochures. Since sample sizes are small, and what is desirable to the client varies, it is always a good idea to make sample boards and note the amounts of additives you used for each sample. 

Sample kits are 1/3 of a full bag and the amount of additives will need to be adjusted by 1/3 to achieve the look in the brochures. For example – Use approximately 85g of glass beads with a sample kit of plaster. Note that mica is packaged in 100g bags for sample kits only.

PROCEDURE 

  1. Pour 80% of required quantity of water into a plastic container. 
  2. Properly place NIOSH approved (N95) dust mask and chemical resistant gloves over person doing mixing and any other persons in close proximity. 
  3. Add and mix with electric hand mixer, one bag of SAO bonding agent. 
  4. Add one bag of Satori SAO plaster and mix it thoroughly using electric hand mixer. 
  5. If you are using optional decorative additives make sure to consider the amount used to achieve your desired effect. Add to plaster mix using hand mixer until additives are dispersed well and evenly throughout the mix. 
  6. Stop mixing and let the mixture stand for 20 minutes. 
  7. Add up to the remaining 20% of water until mix reaches desired application consistency.

NOTE:

  • A one or two-coat process may be used to achieve the desired total coating thickness. 
  • Satori SAO is suitable for trowel application. Do not use spray machine. 
  • Interrupt application only at junctions of coating planes, at openings, and at edges. 
  • Recommended total coating thickness is 1mm – 1.5mm. 


PROCEDURE 

  1. Use rigid rectangular or pointed (use where rectangular trowel doesn’t fit) stainless steel trowels in the size and shape appropriate for the area of the wall being worked on, i.e. corners and edges may require very small specialty trowels. 
  2. Decide whether you will use a one or two coat method. If using one coat proceed to step 5 after applying product uniformly over all areas covering all bare areas up to the recommended thickness of between 1mm and 1.5mm (see section above about coverage rates). 
  3. Apply first coat. First coat shall be flat to true surface and thinner than the second coat or about the thickness of the aggregate. 
  4. When the first coat surface water begins to withdraw or go matte, apply the second coat uniformly up to the recommended thickness. Do not let the first coat dry before applying the second coat. Apply the second coat quickly after the first coat begins to go matte. 
  5. Japanese Plastic Trowel or Japanese thin stainless steel trowel recommended for final compression of the finish after the final finish begins to go matte or surface water withdraws to create the smoothest Japanese style finish possible without burnishing
