You can easily apply Listro yourself using a trowel. Allow to dry, then add a second layer, polishing it every so often with a plastic trowel. This will create a beautiful shine. A third layer will produce an even deeper shine. Extra wax lends added protection to areas which are subjected to wear and tear. The surface will harden in two days. We recommend you to practice well before you start working with Listro. Complete instructions, a list of substrates, and other technical information is available in the product sheet for Tierrafino Listro (PDF) and in the product sheets of our auxiliary products.
