PROPERTIES

Go top
Outstanding self-cleaning ability – owing to the content of silicone resin and siloxane hydrophobic agents, coated surface is free of electrostatic properties, therefore hampers adhesion of particles of dust, dirt, ashes, pollens, fungal spores and cleans itself with precipitation draining down the façade.
Extremely low absorptiveness – great content of polymer binders and hydrophobing agents ensures high level of protection against draining water and moisture – the coating shows the “pearl effect”.
Very high resistance to UV radiation – ensures excellent and durable effect.
High vapour permeability – provides free transport of water vapour and moisture diffusion through the painted substrate.
Perfect spreading – mix of thinners brings excellent paint workability and ensures complete filling of space between aggregate even in case of thick render texture (even at first painting).
Extremely high elasticity – paint does not peel off and crack, works well with substrates and compensates façade thermal strains.
Early resistance to rain – optimum time of setting ensures complete resistance to rain just after 2 hours since drying (depending on application conditions).
Hydrophobing substances used in the paint recipe make its coat completely non-wettable, therefore it does not discolor in rain.
Coats microcracks – use of micromolecular fillers and elastic binders forms coating capable of bridging substrate cracks up to 500 µm.
400 colours available - in accordance to SAH Colour Scheme for Renders and Paints. Individual colours based on a sample available as well.
Great coating and colour durability – owing to the use of organic and inorganic pigments (including high content of titanium white) of improved resistance to UV radiation, it ensures excellent and durable effect.
BIO PROTECTION system – owing to high level of hydrophobisation and high content of biocide capsules, product forms active protective barrier which creates unfavorable conditions for fungi and algae growth and ensures long term aesthetics.
Can be applied upon fresh mineral renders just after 5 days since their application.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

PAINTING

Go top
Substrate preparation
The substrate should be dry, stable and structurally sound, i.e. appropriately strong and free of layers which would impair paint bonding, in particular dust, dirt, wax and grease. Old, poor quality paint coatings, other poorly bonded layers and dispersion paints coatings should be thoroughly removed. Any gaps and cracks should be repaired and floated.

priming not required

Thin-coat dispersion renders

Traditional mineral plasters

Paint preparation
The paint is delivered ready to use. Mix well before use in order to unify its consistency. In case of uncolored paint base remove the foil divider first.
Paint dilution
For application of the first coat the paint can be diluted, particularly in case of application in substrate or ambient temperature close to allowable maximum (+30°C). Use max. 5% of water for dilution (volume ratio) – max. 0.5 l of water for 10 l of paint. Keep the same dilution ratio over the whole painted surface. Use undiluted paint for final painting.
Painting
Apply the paint upon prepared and primed substrate with thin and uniform coat. Paint with a roller, a brush or a sprayer, with one or two coats depending on the substrate absorptiveness and texture. Technological breaks have to be planned in advance, e.g. in corners and angles of a building, under rainwater pipes, on lines of contact of two colours, etc. Apply the paint continuously (using the “wet on wet” method), avoid breaks in application, do not coat partially dried paint. The time of drying depends on substrate, temperature and relative air humidity and can vary from approx. 2 up to 6 hours.

CONSUMPTION

Go top
Consumption depends on substrate absorptiveness and surface texture. The actual consumption can be established on basis of sample application upon particular substrate. The average consumption for one coat painting upon renders and plasters is listed in the table below.

Consumption for 1 m²
Coverage of 1l
Thin-coat mineral renders

approx. 0.22 l
approx. 4.5 m²
Smooth plasters
approx. 0.15 l
approx. 6.6 m²

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
• When stored, paints of relatively high content of filler (in proportion to binder content) are subject to natural and expected phenomenon of sedimentation (delamination). Owing to this effect the paint is protected against drying. Stir the paint mechanically before use.
• Before painting, protect any elements close to the area of application, e.g. window panes, joinery, flashings, etc. When silicone paint dries, stains caused by it cannot be removed without risk of damage to the surface.
• Protect painted surface both during application and paint drying against direct sunlight, wind and precipitation.
• In order to avoid differences in colour shades an individual surface should be coated with paint of the same manufacturing date.
• As a result of painting, natural slight smoothing of substrate texture occurs. Painting surfaces differing in surface structure and technological parametres can result in the effect of various shades of the same paint colour.
• Clean the tools with clean water directly after use, before paint setting.
• Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects. Keep out of reach of children. Read label before use. Avoid release to the environment. Dispose of contents/container to appropriately labeled containers designed for selective waste treatment, emptied by an authorized company. Follow the instructions of the Safety Data Sheet.
• Keep in cool, dry and well ventilated place in tightly sealed original and labeled containers. Protect against direct sunlight, heat sources, hot surfaces and open flames. Temperature of storage: from +5°C up to +30°C. Protect against freezing. Shelf life is 12 months from the production date shown on the packaging.
