TECHNOLOGY

Go top
Hybrid silicate binder – ATLAS SALTA S is manufactured on the basis of mineral binder – potassium silicate supported by polymers – therefore it offers unique physical and chemical properties, perfect workability and, above all, long term durability with no change of technical and aesthetic parametres.
The mineral characteristic of paint offers:
-          the highest water vapour permeability, therefore full permeability of building walls and no accumulation of damp in partition – product recommended for application upon heritage or renovated buildings and renovation plasters.
-          chemical binding which permanently bonds paint to substrate, therefore eliminates risk of paint cracking and loosening under static stress and thermal deformation,
-          resistance to microbiological aggression: algae, moss and lichen even in most demanding locations (close to forests, parks, meadows, water reservoirs) – high product alkalinity protects against biological corrosion which destroys surface aesthetics,
-          shorter technological breaks during façade work and reduction of costs – fresh mineral renders can be painted three days since their application with no risk of efflorescence.
Inorganic pigments – specially selected pigments ensure long term resistance to destructive action of UV radiation and colour durability.
Polymer additives – binding additives and coat hydrophobic agents reduce product absorptiveness and protect substrate against precipitation, damp ingress and soiling.

USE

Go top
Wide range of use – on single- and multi-family housing, public access, commercial, healthcare buildings, outhouses, heritage buildings.
 
Types of substrates – cement and cement-lime plasters, thin-coat mineral and silicate renders, concrete (monolithic and prefabricated), gypsum plasters and finishes, plasterboards, rough walls made of concrete, bricks, blocks and ceramic or silicate hollow blocks, silicate paint coatings.

PROPERTIES

Go top
Very high water vapour permeability – ensures free transfer of water vapour and damp diffusion through substrate the paint is used upon.
Penetrates the substrate structure and forms uniform system, invulnerable to cracking and loosening.
Available in 352 colours - in accordance to SAH Colour Scheme for Renders and Paints.
Perfect coating – owing to the use of inorganic pigments, the paint offers perfect and durable effect after single coating.
BIO PROTECTION – creates unfavorable conditions for fungi and algae growth due to highly alkaline reaction, ensures long term protection.
Enables painting fresh thin-coat mineral renders 48 hours since their application.

PAINTING

Go top
Substrate preparation
The substrate should be dry and structurally sound, i.e. strong enough and free from layers which would impair paint bonding, in particular efflorescence, dust, dirt, wax and grease. Thoroughly remove any old paint coats and poorly bonded layers. Repair and float minor defects (e.g. cracks or gaps), e.g. with ATLAS ZW 330 mortar. Substrates of low absorptiveness and fresh render do not require priming. Highly absorbable and absorptive substrates should be primed with ATLAS ARKOL SX emulsion.
Rendering coats can be painted when they set fully, not earlier however than after:
mineral renders ATLAS CERMIT SN, DR, SN-MAL, ND and ND for painting
48 hours
ATLAS PLASTERING MIX
72 hours
Paint preparation
The paint is delivered ready to use. Mix well before use in order to unify consistency, remove foil separator (when using uncoloured paint).
Paint dilution
For the first paint coating, particularly when carrying out work in ambient or substrate temperature close to maximum allowable (+25°C), paint can be diluted with ATLAS ARKOL SX emulsion in ratio: max. 0.70 l of preparation with 10 l of paint. Keep the same dilution ratio over the whole painted surface. Use undiluted paint for final painting.
Painting
Apply the paint with thin and uniform coat with a roller, a brush or sprayed. Depending on substrate absorptiveness and structure, paint can be applied with one or two coats. 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”) and avoid breaks in application. 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 structure. 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.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Go top
• Before painting, protect any elements close to the area of application, e.g. window panes, joinery, flashings, etc. When silicate paint dries, stains caused by it cannot be removed without risk of damage to the surface.
• Protect the 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. 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 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 12 months from the production date shown on the packaging.
