Field of ApplicationCapadecor® DecoGrund is a white pigmented special priming paint, applied prior to following decorative semi-transparent/translucent glaze (scumbling paint) coats, textured coatings and also some filler/surfacer coatings in interiors. Capadecor® DecoGrund is also suitable as an adhesion enhancing coat before applying synthetic resin/emulsion or silicate-based finishing coats and is also used as grip coat before hanging wallpapers of any type on smooth, low absorbent substrates.
- Easy to apply, water-dilutable, ecologically and low odour.
- High adhesion to the substrate.
- Good opacity (hiding/covering power).
- Priming coat for following decorative coatings.
Material Base / VehicleModified synthetic resin dispersion/emulsion according to German standard DIN 55945.

|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Suitable SubstratesThe substrates must be solid, sound/stable, dry, clean, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion. In Germany: Follow VOB, part C, DIN 18363, section 3.
Substrate PreparationSee Technical Information No. 650 "Substrates and their Preparation" for suitability of the product on various substrates and their special pre-treatment.
Thin-layered gypsum filler coatings: Prime with Capadecor® DecoGrund or CapaSol before applying subsequent coatings.
ThinningCapadecor® DecoGrund is dilutable to a max. of 10 % with tap (potable) water. Higher dilution is detrimental to hiding power and application properties.
Surface Coating SystemApply Capadecor® DecoGrund (diluted as required) by paint roller or brush to the full surface.
For following semi-transparent glaze (scumbling paint) coats or filler/surfacer coatings the roller applied priming coat of DecoGrund must be wiped with a brush or filler treated.
Consumption150 - 200 ml/m2 on smooth surfaces. On roughly textured substrates correspondingly more.
Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.
