Intended Usages

  • Exterior final coat for new or existing facades (exterior walls).
  • Decorating and protection of correctly prepared and primed cement plaster, concrete, brickwork, fibre-cement, metal and wood substrates.

Application Details

  • Mixing: Stir well before use with a flat paddle to a homogenous consistency. Stir occasionally during use to ensure correct application results.
  • Method: Roller and brush.
  • Thinning: Ready to use. Do not dilute.
  • Cleaning: Tap water. Remove as much of the product as possible from the application equipment before cleaning with water.

Application Conditions:

  • Surface temperature between 5°C and 40°C or 2⁰C above dew point, if possible away from direct sunlight.
  • Ambient temperature between 5°C and 40°C
  • Relative Humidity between 10% and 85%
  • Ideally apply when the temperature of the substrate is at least 2°C above dew point, if possible away from direct sunlight.

Drying time: 

  • Touch dry: 30 minutes at 23ºC
  • Overcoating: 4h at 23ºC
  • Full cure: 7 – 21 day depending on weather conditions.

Note: higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10⁰C increase) whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying times (approximately doubled for every 10⁰C decrease).

Requirements: 2 coats minimum.

Surface Preparations
Surfaces must be sound, clean and dry (moisture content below 15%) before painting. Plaster sand to comply with SABS 1090 requirements. Plaster mix must have a minimum thickness of 10mm, free from soft and friable material and comply with SABS 0164-1 for strength (MPA).

New Work Exterior Facades:

  • Cement plaster sound with 15% or less moisture: Apply one coat Prominent Dampcure or Prominent Plaster Primer.
  • Cement plaster sound with 40% or less moisture: Apply one coat Prominent Dampcure diluted 10% with Mineral Turpentine. Allow 24 hours curing before applying 2nd coat Prominent Dampcure undiluted with 24 hours curing time. Only proceed once the moisture contents proved to be 15% or less.
  • Fibre Cement: Apply one coat Prominent Dampcure or Prominent Plaster Primer.
  • Slightly friable plaster: Apply 1 coat Prominent Surface Restorer and allow curing for 24 hours. Test adhesion of the Prominent Surface Restorer with a cross hatch masking tape test. If suspect apply a further coat of Prominent Surface Restorer. Repeat adhesion test. Only proceed if good results are achieved. Consult Prominent Technical department if adhesion test failed.
  • Wood: One coat Prominent Wood Primer.
  • Mild steel: One coat Prominent Rust Primer.
  • Galvanised iron: Apply 2 coats Prominent Rust Primer.

Redecorating Exterior Facedes:

  • Sound gloss enamel paint: Sand well to a matt finish, Clean with General Purpose Cleaner/water mixture diluted 1:5 and abrasive pad. Rinse with water and allow drying. Apply 1 coat Prominent Universal Undercoat.
  • Sound matt and emulsion paint: Clean with General Purpose Cleaner/water mixture diluted 1:5 and abrasive pad. Rinse with water and allow drying. Apply directly.
  • Chalky surfaces: High Pressure water jet cleans the wall to remove the chalk back to sound painted surface. Allow drying before applying one coat Prominent Surface Restorer.
  • Poor condition surfaces: Strip down and treat as new work.
  • Walls with moisture related problems: Consult Prominent Technical Service Department.

Limitations

  • The low VOC compliance is applicable on White and colour mixed from Controlled White for batches manufactured from 1 September 2016 onwards.
  • Weather conditions during application should conform to the Standard. The surface temperature of the substrate should be between 10ºC and 40ºC and the relative humidity below 85%. Do not apply in freezing conditions, in windy weather, or if rain is likely.
  • Wet film thickness measurements (WFT) need to be done with a good quality WFT comb, immediately after application, and serves as a guide to verify WFT during application. Only dry film thickness (DFT) measurements can be used as part of the quality control process.
  • PROMINENT PAINTS ULTRA SHIELD can’t be used for interior applications.
  • To ensure a consistent appearance ensure that batch numbers on all the containers are the same. Where the batch numbers differ, intermix before use.
  • Spot touching up over large areas will be noticeable.
  • PROMINENT PAINTS ULTRA SHIELD can only be applied to quality undercoats and primers.
  • Cannot be overcoated with non-flexible paints.
  • Spreading rate of 5m² per liter should not be exceeded.
