|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Suitable SubstratesThe substrate must be sound/stable, dry, clean, and free from all materials that may prevent good adhesion. In Germany: Follow VOB, part C, DIN 18363, section 3.
New Renders/Plasters in Mortar Groups/Classes PIc (Hydraulic Lime Plaster),
PII (Lime-Cement Mortars) and PIII (Cement Mortars):
New renders/plasters must be left untreated for a sufficiently long time, at least 7 days at 20°C and 65 % rel. air humidity. Remove sintered skin with Histolith® Fluat.
Untreated Existing Renders/Plasters and Mineral Paints:
Carefully clean the surface and remove all layers of low adherence. Apply one priming coat of
Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ, thinned in ratio of 2:1 to 1:1 with tap (potable) water, depending on substrate absorbency.
Repair mortars should match the existing render/plaster in type and texture and must be allowed to set
and harden thoroughly before being painted. Treat all repairs with Histolith® Fluat and rinse with tap
Brickwork / Brick Masonry:
Only brickwork made of absorbent bricks is suitable. Hard-burned bricks and clinkers are unsuitable.
Always check for compatibility by coating a test area on site. Carefully clean the surface. Touch up
damaged mortar joints. Apply one priming coat of Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ, thinned in ratio of 2:1 to 1:1 with tap water, depending on substrate absorbency.
Only absorbent natural stones are suitable substrates. Always check for compatibility by coating a test area on site. Clean the surface thoroughly and remove all layers of low adherence. Strengthen sanding
natural stones with stone sealer Histolith® Steinfestiger.
Note: Natural stones with water-soluble substances of content may show efflorescence on the paint
coat and visible stains may occur.
Surfaces with Fungal or Algal Attack:
Wash off the fungal (fungi/mildew/mould) or algal attack. Allow the surface to dry, then use Histolith® Algenentferner (algae remover) and allow to dry. Prior consultation with our technical assistance is needed to achieve the correct surface coating system.
New Renders/Plasters (Mortar Groups/Classes PIc, PII and PIII):
Leave to stand for at least 7 days at 20°C and 65 rel. air humidity. Remove sintered skin with Histolith® Fluat.
Gypsum Renders/Plasters in Mortar Group/Class PIV:
On solid/stable renders/plasters apply one priming coat of Histolith® Weißgrund.
Strengthen soft gypsum renders/plasters with Histolith® Spezialgrundierung (special primer).
Sand gypsum plasters with sintered skin, then remove sanding dust and apply one priming coat of
In each case: Allow to dry well, then apply one intermediate coat of Histolith® Weißgrund.
Gypsum Plasterboards (Sandwich Type Plaster Boards):
Sand down filling burrs. Prime with Histolith® Weißgrund. Strengthen soft filled gypsum patches with
Histolith® Spezialgrundierung. Apply one priming coat of Histolith® Weißgrund. For boards with watersoluble content that leaves marks, apply one priming coat of Caparol Aqua-Sperrgrund.
In Germany: Follow BFS Data Sheet No. 12.
Gypsum Building Boards: Apply one priming coat of Histolith® Weißgrund.
Concrete: Carefully remove all residues of releasing agent.
Brickwork / Brick Masonry:
Carefully clean the surface. Touch up damaged mortar joints. Apply one priming coat of Caparol Aqua-
Sperrgrund for bricks with water-soluble content that leaves marks.
Stable Existing Coats of Matt (Flat) Dispersion/Emulsion Paint: Clean the surface thoroughly.
Glue-Bound Distemper: Wash off (remove) thoroughly. Prime with Histolith® Spezialgrundierung.
Wash off the fungal (fungi/mildew/mould) attack. Apply Histolith® Algenentferner (algae remover) on
the fully dry surface, then allow to dry again. Prior consultation with our technical assistance is needed
to achieve the correct surface coating system.
Method of ApplicationApply the product on listed (landmarked) buildings/monuments preferably by paint brush.
Surface Coating SystemSlightly and Evenly Absorbent Mineral Substrates:
Apply one priming and one finishing coat of Histolith® Mineralin, thinned to a max. of 5 % with Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ.
Strongly and Unevenly Absorbent Substrates or Mineral Substrates Sanding on the Surface:
Apply one priming coat of Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ, thinned in ratio of 2:1 to 1:1 with tap (potable) water depending on substrate absorbency.
Apply one intermediate coat of Histolith® Mineralin, thinned to a max. of 5 % with Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ.
Apply one finishing coat of Histolith® Mineralin, thinned to a max. of 5 % with Histolith® Silikat-Fixativ.
Alternative finishing coats: Histolith® Außenquarz is suitable for exterior use.
Histolith® Bio Innensilikat or Histolith® Raumquarz are applicable for the interiors.
Mix Histolith® Mineralin thoroughly with approx. 30 % of Histolith® Schlämmquarz to achieve an applicable consistency. Apply with scraper or smoothing trowel. Treat (felt) the slightly stiffened surface with a felt float.
ConsumptionApprox. 400 - 500 g/m2 on an even substrate. On rough-textured surfaces correspondingly more.
The exact consumption is best established by a trial coating (test area) on site.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+8 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.
Drying/Drying TimeAt +20 °C and 65 % relative humidity surface-dry and recoatable after 12 hours.
Rain resistant after 24 hours. Lower temperatures and higher humidity extend the drying time.
Tool CleaningClean tools/equipment immediately after use with water.
NoteTo avoid lapping, the material should be applied wet-on-wet and without interruption. Do not apply on horizontal or inclined surfaces exposed to rain or moisture.
Do not apply on sun heated substrates, during high temperatures, strong wind, extremely high relative humidity, fog or rain, or imminent rain and frost. Night frost must be avoided. Protect the facade with suitable scaffolding-nets or tarpaulins, if necessary.
The areas adjoining the surface to be painted should be carefully masked, in particular glass, ceramics, enamel/varnish coatings, clinkers, natural stone, metals and wood.
Please Note (Status as at Date of Publication)Keep out of the reach of children. Use P2 dust filter for grinding. Ensure good ventilation during use and drying. Do not eat, drink or smoke while using the product. In case of contact with eyes or skin, immediately and thoroughly rinse with water. Do not allow product to enter drains, waterways or soil.
The reaction of silicate based coatings is highly alkaline. Hence protect skin and eyes from paint. The areas adjoining the surface to be coated must be carefully masked, in particular glass, ceramics, enamel/varnish coating, clinkers, natural stones, wood and metals. Wash splashes immediately and completely with plenty of clean water.
