  • coverage: approx. 16-20 m² from a single packaging

PROPERTIES

Go top
Metallic varnish is a mix of acrylic dispersions, hydrophobing agents, modifiers and metallic pigments.
Forms unique and exceptional metal effect on a façade.
Coat elasticity and high resistance to atmospheric conditions – owing to rich content of polymer dispersions.
Highly hydrophobic, resistant to soiling – great content of special acrylic resins allows for significant reduction of coating absorptiveness, therefore reduces deposition of dust and dirt.
Durable and stable colours – specially selected metallic pigments of high resistance to UV radiation assure long term colour stability and durability. This solution allows to keep façade aesthetics – shades do not fade nor get rusty even in case of intensive exposure to UV radiation. Therefore, the façade coated with metallic varnish keeps decorated for long.
Available in 4 colours – colour range imitates most common shades of metals: aged gold, patinated silver, titanium, copper. The final effect depends on colour and texture of substrate coated with varnish.

APPLICATION

Go top
Substrate preparation
The substrate should be dry and sound, free of dirt. Its smoothness facilitates formation of the metallic plate effect. Natural irregularities resulting from render smoothening can get more intensive after coating with varnish. Consider rusticating if a surface cannot be coated completely in a single application cycle. Absorptive substrates should be primed with ATLAS OPTI-GRUNT agent. Note: excessive priming can hamper the varnish application.
 
Detailed guidelines on the substrate requirements:

Substrate type
Stabilization requirements
ATLAS REKORD, ATLAS CERMIT WN and other mineral substrates
min. 5 days*
ATLAS CERMIT N-100 and other dispersive renders
min. 3 days*
Freshly applied cement plasters made of ready-to-use ATLAS plastering mixes, traditional cement or cement – lime plasters
min. 14 days*, moisture content < 2%
Concrete
moisture content < 2%
Firmly fixed and primed plasterboards (follow boards manufacturer’s guidelines and engineering principles)
moisture content < 2%

*for setting conditions: T = +20°C, air humidity 50%
 
Varnish preparation
Metallic varnish is delivered ready-to-use. Mix well before use in order to unify its consistency, best with a low speed mixer with a drill. Repeat mixing during application, if needed. The product must not be mixed with other materials or thinned.
Metal Effect application
Varnish should be applied in two coats. Use clean tools and containers only. The best metallic coating is formed when applying the varnish with a roller. In case of spray application, protect neighbouring façade elements, windows and doors. Apply the varnish with uniform, thin coat, avoid patches and unpainted points. Do not leave unpainted points.
Time of drying - depending on substrate type, air temperature and relative humidity – from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. In high humidity and temperature close to +5°C the time of drying can extend.

CONSUMPTION

Go top
The actual consumption depends on substrate type and evenness. Coverage for single coating of even, non-absorptive substrate - approx. 16-20 m² from a single packaging.  The actual consumption can be established on basis of sample application upon particular substrate.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
• Do not use on façades exposed to strong sunlight. Protect painted surfaces both during application and approx. 24 hours after against direct sunlight. Use scaffolding covers. Protect painted surface against dust and precipitation until the varnish dries.
• In order to avoid differences in colour shades an individual surface should be coated in one technological cycle with varnish of the same manufacturing date.
• Tools must be cleaned with clean water directly after use.
• Do not use the product on horizontal surfaces exposed to direct water and snow action as well as damp resulting from capillary action.
