SURFACE GRIT

Dimension Grit™ is a texturizer made from pumice used to gage (add toothy, grippy texture) to primers and surface sealants over smooth surfaces (like wall board) prior to application of a LIMESTRONG ARTISAN plaster grade. The light, frothy nature of pumice and its low specific gravity keeps Dimension Grit™ in suspension and dispersed in viscous liquids like primers.
