  • ISO 11 998 [Paints and varnishes -- Determination of wet-scrub resistance and cleanability of coatings], ISO 2813 [Paints and varnishes -- Determination of specular gloss of non-metallic paint films at 20 degrees, 60 degrees and 85 degrees] – techniques for measuring gloss and wear resistance parameters.
  • RYL – construction quality standard for finishing commonly followed in the EU area; describes coating materials, using generally accepted standards, for proper quality assurance in construction. 
  • VOC (volatile organic compounds) – content in accordance with the European Union directive 2004/42/CE.

Surface preparation before painting

Previously unpainted surfaces: Clean the surface, removing dirt and dust.  Apply a suitable putty from the FILLER line: Face Filler (deep holes), Aqua Filler (wet rooms).  Sand the filled surface to make it even and remove sanding dust. Prime filled, porous or unevenly porous surfaces with Aquastop or Tiefgrund moisture barrier; use Aguastop Bio for wet rooms.  Follow the product instructions for use.  Prime the surfaces with water-borne priming paint Flat to even out the surface absorption capacity, increase the durability of the painted surface and decrease the consumption of the top coat paint. 
Previously painted surfaces: The painted surface must be cleaned from loose and peeling material, grease, dust and other impurities.   If mould removal is necessary, use Biotol E or Biotol Spray (follow the product instructions for use). To clean the surfaces that are very dirty or have soot, water, nicotine or grease stains, wash the surface with a EasyClean and leave to dry. Then prime with the isolating paint Objekt. Before painting durable old alkyd surfaces, sand them until they are matt and remove sanding dust thoroughly.  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.  Prime the surfaces with water-borne priming paint Flat to decrease the consumption of the top coat paint and improve coverage. When using very dark or bright tones of Akrit 20, we recommend priming with the paint of a similar colour.


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 10…25 °C and relative humidity not exceeding 80%. Avoid application in draughty places and at high air temperature (over +25 °C). When painting, make sure to keep a wet edge. 

Care for the painted surface

The coating reaches its peak wear resistance in about 4 weeks; in the meantime, treat the surface with care until its hardness and wear resistance have reached their peak levels. If necessary, the surface can be lightly wiped with a soft sponge or clothe approximately 48 hours after paint application. We recommend using water and neutral or medium alkaline detergents (pH below 9). Do not use organic solvents, abrasive cleansers and hard scrubbing brushes or sponges. Extensive rubbing may make the surface glossy. We recommend using Biotol E and Biotol Spray to remove mould.


Roller (pile length: 10-14 mm), airless spray gun (nozzle: 0.021–0.027'').

Tool cleaning

Wash with soap and water after completing work.

Drying time

At the temperature of +20 °C and the relative humidity of 50%, the coat dries and the surface is ready for the application of another coat in 1–2 hours. If the temperature is lower and the humidity is higher, the drying takes longer accordingly.
Store and transport in intact containers at the temperature between +5°С and +30°С. Protect from exposure to freezing and direct sunlight.
