Short and to the point
- Simple preparation – our paints require thorough mixing with low-speed mixers before use. Depending on the method of application, it may be necessary to dilute with water.
- Universal method of application – our paints can be applied with a brush, roller, spray or in the form of a mass for application with a putty (similar to gypsum plaster).
- Water-soluble – depending on the conditions, it may be necessary to dilute the product with water. Water alone is enough to clean the tools!
- In any color – the paint can be tinted in any color, using typical pigments for water-based paints.
- For orders over 400 liters, we offer the possibility of purchasing paint in colors similar to the RAL palette.
- Any surface texture – depending on the tools used and the method of coating preparation, we can obtain a smooth or rough surface.
1. Preparation before application
For the application you will need:
- Protective clothing
- Brush, roller, putty or painting unit
Important! The painted surface should be leveled and cleaned. Depending on the condition of the surface, it may be necessary to prime the surface first. Do not apply to wet, oily or corroded surfaces.
2. Preparation of the paint
The paint must be mixedbefore application. We recommend the use of a low speed stirrer with a maximum speed of 200 RPM. In practice, this means that an ordinary drill with a mixer is enough😉
For simple painting works that do not require a high aesthetic finish, we recommend the use of a paint brush. Contrary to spray application, this method is characterized by low material losses and allows for quick implementation.
A paint roller can be used for application. We recommend using short-pile rollers or polyurethane sponge rollers.
Depending on the condition of the surface, it may be necessary to prime the surface first.
To increase the comfort of work, we recommend diluting the paint with 5% water (50 ml of water per 1 liter of paint). Important! After dilution, the paint must be used up within 3-5 hours at the most.
3.3. Painting unit
The painting unit will work well when painting large surfaces, as well as those of complex shape (e.g. details of historic architecture).
You do not need a professional paint sprayer for application with this method – all you need is an HVLP / LVLP (low pressure) spray gun and a compressed air source, which you can find at your local construction and repair shop.
- When working with the unit, remove all paint filters from it or replace it with a filter with a mesh diameter of at least 2 mm.
If you want a smooth finish of the wall surface, you can use the paint interchangeably with plaster of paris.
Careful execution of the finish coat will not require excessive sanding, which has a negative impact on the thermal insulation parameters of the coating.
Depending on the type of surface, it may be necessary to dilute the product with water. We recommend gradually adding water in small batches, but not more than 10% (100 ml per 1 liter of paint). Important! After dilution, the paint must be used up within 3-5 hours at the most.
Consumption, depending on the application, is 0.5 – 3.0 liters of paint on the surface of 1m2.
- radiation reflection – total layer thickness min. 0.5 mm (0.5 l / m2),
- mold and fungi on the walls – total layer thickness min. 1 mm (1 l / m2),
- water vapor condensation – total layer thickness min. 1.5 mm (1 l / m2),
- thermal insulation – total layer thickness min. 1-3 mm (1-3 l / m2),
- hot surface (e.g. pipe) – total layer thickness 1.5-3 mm (1.5-3 l / m2).
Paint application tools
- Mechanical Low Pressure Units HVLP:
- for large areas use, for example, a Graco RTX 5500 series aggregate
- for an area <50m², we recommend using:
- A single layer of paint should not exceed 1mm thick, e.g. to obtain a final layer of 2mm, at least 2 layers should be applied.
- In order to avoid streaking and discoloration, paint the surface continuously.
- Plan technological breaks at the edges of the walls.
- To obtain a uniform color, it is necessary to provide enough paint from one production batch (especially if the product is colored with pigments). Mix the paint from different batches before use.
- The drying and recoating times depend on the thickness of the layer, temperature and relative air humidity.
- For example, the drying time of a single layer at a temperature of +20 ± 2 ° C is up to 24 hours, while if the temperature of the substrate is above + 50 ° C, this time is reduced to 1 hour.
