Quality standards

  • EN 13300 [Paints and varnishes. Water-borne coating materials and coating systems for interior walls and ceilings. Classification] – classification standards of coverage, gloss level and wet abrasion resistance parameters for water-borne coating materials for interior walls and ceilings.
  • 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.
  • Product and service quality is guaranteed by the quality, environmental protection, occupational health and safety management system in accordance with standards ISO 9001:2015; ISO 14001:2015 andISO 45001:2018.
  • “Eesti Allergialiit tunnustab” (“Estonian Allergy and Asthma Federation recognizes”) is assigned to products that are safe, reliable, do not contain fragrance or generally irritating or sensitising substances and that help to reduce indoor air pollutant levels and are suitable for people with sensitive skin or suffering from allergic diseases.
  • EU Ecolabel – The EU Ecolabel is the official ecolabel of the European Union. Ecolabel is a voluntary label, assigned to products with a minimal environmental impact throughout their life cycle - from raw materials production, from use to disposal; testifies to the safety of products and attentive attitude of the manufacturer to the issues of environmental protection. Ecolabel allows products to be distinguished from other similar items that have a greater negative impact on the environment. An ecolabel is issued by an impartial institution to a product which corresponds to the ecological criteria of the ecolabel. More information:  http://ec.europa.eu/environment/ecolabel/

Surface preparation before painting


The surface to be painted must be carefully cleaned from loose or peeling material, dirt, grease and dust. Remove old chalk surface completely. 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 Fine Filler putty to fill cracks and dents or smooth the surface. We recommend using FINE-PRO FILLER as the finishing layer to even out the surface. Use Aquastop to prime surfaces that give up dust and surfaces with uneven absorption. Follow the product instructions for use.

Application


Stir the paint thoroughly before application. Does not to be diluted when used as a top coat or applied with a roller. Apply with a roller or spray gun at the temperature between +10 °C and +25 °C and relative air humidity below 80%. Apply a level uniform coat. The second coat might be needed for surfaces in a contrasting colour. When using as a primer or applying with a spray gun, dilute the paint with water in the amount of up to 5% of its volume; use the 0.017–0.021'' spray gun nozzle. One coat will generally be sufficient. Try to maintain a wet edge in the process of painting. 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.


Care for the painted surface


Under normal conditions, the paint coat reaches its peak hardness in 3…4 weeks, after which the painted surface can withstand cleaning. Use lukewarm water and neutral or mildly alkaline detergents (pH below 9) and a soft microfiber cloth for cleaning. Do not use organic solvents. Do not use abrasive tools or detergents, stiff brushes or rough sponges. Excessive rubbing may make the surface glossy. Wipe the surface dry after wet cleaning.

Tools


Roller (pile length: 10-14 mm), airless spray gun (nozzle: 0.017–0.021'')

Tool cleaning


Wash with soap and water after completing work.

Colour

White

Consumption

Consumption on the absorbing surface of 8…10 m²/L, consumption of non-absorbent surface of 11…14 m²/L. For painting 1 m² s required approximately 100…150 ml of paint i, depending on the surface. Minimize waste of paint by calculating the pre-required amount using an online calculator http://eskaro.ee/products/calc/.

Drying time

The surface is ready for the application of another coat in 2…2,5 hours. The surface is fully dry in 12 hours at the temperature of +20 °C and the relative humidity of 80%.
Store and transport in intact containers at the temperature between +5…30 °С. Protect from exposure to freezing and direct sunlight.
