USE

Go top
Base coat painting walls and ceilings indoors prior to application of top coat acrylic or latex paints.
Particularly recommended for painting plasterboard substrates or those of heterogeneous texture.
Recommended as base coat paint for renovation painting on latex paint substrates (matt and semi-gloss).
Painting wood and wood-based materials.
Types of painted substrates – cement or cement-lime plasters, thin-coat mineral renders, gypsum plasters and top finishes,  polymer top finishes, plasterboards, wallpapers, rough walls of concrete, bricks, blocks, hollow blocks, wood and wood-based materials.

PROPERTIES

Go top
Unifies the substrate absorptiveness – ensures uniform drying of top coat paints.
Improves bonding of top coat paints.
Reduces the cost of painting – effectively replaces the first coat of top coat paint.
Improves coating – limits the influence of substrate texture and colour on the final painting effect.
Elastic – transfers microcracks up to 100 μm.
Vapour – permeable – ensures water vapour permeability.
Perfect for hydrodynamic spraying.

Substrate preparation
The substrate should be air-dry, free from cracks and layers which would impair the paint bonding, in particular dust, dirt, wax and grease. Thoroughly remove any old adhesion paints and other coatings of poor bonding to the substrate. Clean old emulsion paint coatings with water with addition of detergents and leave to dry. Minor defects (e.g. cracks or gaps) should be repaired and floated. ATLAS GIPS RAPID recommended for substrate surface repairs. Places infected with mould should be cleaned and protected with ATLAS MYKOS agent. Prime substrates of high absorptivity and absorbability or dusty ones with one of two priming emulsions (in each case the primer after drying should form matt surface):
- ATLAS UNI-GRUNT diluted with water in weight ratio 1:3 (emulsion : water),
- ATLAS OPTI-GRUNT.
On non-absorptive substrates, e.g. plasterboards or surfaces coated with emulsion paints, one can apply ATLAS BASE COAT PAINT without priming with priming emulsions. Prior to wallpapers painting one should check the quality of bond between the paper and the substrate. Painting poorly bonded wallpapers can cause formation of blisters. Plasters can be painted after full drying, not earlier than:
- cement and cement-lime plasters - after 3-4 weeks,
- gypsum plasters - after 2 weeks.
Plasterboards can be painted when the jointing mass used between them dries.
Paint preparation
The paint is delivered ready to use. It must not be mixed with other materials. Before use, mix well with low speed mixer with drill for paints in order to unify the consistency.
Paint dilution
The paint can be diluted with water in ratio: max. 0.2 l of water with 10 l of paint. Keep the same dilution ratio over the whole painted surface.
Painting
Apply the paint upon prepared and stable substrate with thin and uniform coat. Paint can be applied with a roller, a brush or sprayed. Top coat paints, e.g. ATLAS ecoFARBA, ATLAS optiFARBA, ATLAS proFARBA can be applied after drying, i.e. after min. 2 hours.

COVERAGE

Coverage: up to 8 m²/ 1 l of paint with single painting of smooth surfaces. Actual coverage depends on the substrate absorptiveness.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
·         If using painting tapes, remove them carefully and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. Prime gypsum top finish prior to painting tapes fixing.
·         Air the room during painting and directly after until characteristic smell disappears.
·         The tools must be cleaned with clean water directly after use, before the paint dries.
·         Keep out of reach of children. Follow the instructions of the Safety Data Sheet. Unconditionally use respiratory, eyes and hands protective equipment when spraying.
·         Keep in tightly sealed original and labeled containers. Keep in dry and cool places, protect against overheating (> 30 °C) and freezing - the product freezes and irreversibly loses its performance in temperature below 0 °C. Protect against direct sunshine. Incompatible materials: avoid contact with aluminum, copper and alloys of these metals. Shelf life in conditions as specified is 24 months from the production date shown on the packaging.
