Machine tinting

Surface preparation before  treatment

The surface to be painted must be degreased and cleaned from peeling paint, dirt and dust; it must also be dry. We recommend using the Katto Cleaner detergent for cleaning metal radiators.
If the surface is very dirty or greasy, clean it with the EasyClean.
Sandpaper the surfaces previously painted with enamel or oil-bound paint until they are matt. Use the OPS PRO product for the removal of old varnish coatings if necessary.
Sand previously painted metal surfaces, clean them rom rust and peeling paint and treat with and anticorrosion primer. Pre-treat new metal surfaces with an anticorrosion primer.

Application


Stir the paint thoroughly before application. Mixing a sufficient quantity of the tinted paint from several cans in one container is recommended for ensuring that the colour of large surfaces is even. Apply 1-2 coats with a brush or roller at the temperature between +10 °C and +25 °C and relative humidity not exceeding 80%. Application on warm radiators (up to 45 °C) is acceptable.

Care for the painted surface

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

Tools


Brush, roller.

Tool cleaning


Clean the tools with water after completing work.

Colour

White

Tinting

Machine tinting according to the Eskarocolor system (base А)

Consumption

6–10 m²/L

Drying time

At the temperature of +20 °C and the relative humidity of 65%, the surface is dust-dry in 1,5 – 2 hours and ready for the application of another coat in 5–6 hours. If the temperature is lower and the humidity is higher, the drying takes longer accordingly. The paint coating reaches its peak hardness and wash resistance in about four weeks.
