TECHNICAL DATASHEET

Features

  • Non-yellowing: Unlike alkyd based paints, whites remain white.
  • Water-based: Easy cleaning, low odour and quick drying.
  • Hardwearing and washable.
  • Resists staining: Easy to clean and remove dirt and grime.
  • Good adhesion: Can be applied to previously coated, sound surfaces.
  • UV Resistant: Does not chalk on outside exposure – normal fading of colours can take place over time.
  • Hairline crack bridging: Permanently hide existing hairline cracks.
  • Water vapour permeable: Allows coating to breathe, allowing moisture to escape, but resist ingress of water into the coating.
  • Can be tinted to specific colour requirements.
  • Lead free and low VOC.

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 before use with a flat paddle to an even consistency. Stir occasionally during use to ensure correct application results.
  • Method: Roller, 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.

Conditions:

  • Temperature between 5°C and 40°C.
  • Relative humidity of less than 85%, preferably between 10:00 and 16:00.
  • 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 23°C.

Recoating time:
4 hours at 23°C.
Note: Higher temperatures will accelerate the drying times (approximately halved for every 10°C increase), whilst lower temperatures will retard the drying time (approximately doubled for every 10°C decrease).

Requirements:
Two coats.
