Surface preparation before  treatment


The surface to be painted must be carefully cleaned from peeling material, dirt and dust.I f mould removal is necessary, use Biotol E or Biotol Spray Sandpaper durable alkyd substrates until they are matt and remove the dust thoroughly. If the surface is very dirty, wash it with EasyClean. Use a putty from the FILLER line to fill cracks, holes and uneven areas. Sand the filled surface to make it even and remove sanding dust. Prime filled surfaces with Aquastop or Tiefgrund moisture barrier to reduce porosity.

Application


Stir the paint thoroughly before application. The paint can be diluted with water in the amount of up to 5% of its volume for the application of the first coat. Apply 2 coats with a roller or spray gun at the temperature between 10 °C and 25 °C and relative humidity not exceeding 80%.
In case the paint job is carried out in adverse conditions (draughts, the use of heating appliances, high temperature or low air humidity), we recommend using the Time+ slow-dry agent in the amount of up to 3% of the paint volume (mix 0.33 L of Time+ into 9.5 L of paint).

Care for the painted surface


Treat the surface with care for 4 weeks after painting until its hardness and wash resistance have reached their peak levels. We recommend using water and neutral or medium alkaline detergents (pH below 9).
Do not use organic solvents and hard scrubbing brushes or sponges. Wipe the surface dry after wet cleaning. Use Biotol E and Biotol Spray to remove mould. Use soft sponges and cloths for cleaning.
If necessary, the surface can be lightly wiped with a soft sponge or cloth approximately 48 hours after paint application.
