APPLICATION

Go top
Substrate preparation

The substrate should be dry, stable, even and structurally sound i.e. strong enough and free from layers that may weaken paint adhesion, in particular dust, dirt, wax and grease. Carefully remove any old paints and other layers of weak adhesion to the substrate. Repair and fill small defects (e.g. cracks and cavities).

Primer preparation

The primer is delivered in the ready to use form. It must not be diluted or mixed with other materials.

Priming

Apply the primer on the substrate with a roller or a brush, in thin and even layer. The priming can be repeated for very absorbable surfaces, applying the primer perpendicularly to the first layer. The second layer can be applied after minimum 4 hours of the first priming. The drying time of the primer depends on the substrate, temperature and relative air humidity and is about 30 min. The substrate must be primed 4 hours before painting with silicone paints.


CONSUMPTION

Go top

The average consumption is ca. 0.2 kg of the primer for 1 m². In practice, the consumption depends on the absorbability of the substrate. In order to determine the exact consumption, running a test is recommended.


IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top

• Protect the painted surface against direct sunlight, wind and precipitation both during works and during the paint drying.

• Clean the tools with clean water directly after use before primer setting.

• Keep out of the reach of children. In case of direct contact with eyes, rinse with large amounts of water and seek medical attention. Proceed according to Safety Data Sheet.
