Emission-minimised quality for satin-finished interior paint coatings.

  • LV Texte

    Field of Application

    For highly durable, scrub-resistant and texture-retaining interior paint coatings with a satin-gloss surface. Particularly suitable for surfaces subjected to excessive wear, e.g. in schools, hospitals, play rooms, public buildings, offices, halls, hotels, restaurants, staircases, etc., since the coating is hard-wearing and may easily be cleaned.

    In addition, the product is particularly suitable for coating woodchip/ingrain wallpapers, relief and embossed wallpapers, as well as for glass fabric wall coverings to highlight the texture by a silky gloss.

    Material Properties

    • Diffusion-capable.
    • sd-value < 0.3 m
    • Excellent cleaning properties and resistant to aqueous disinfectants and household detergents.
    • Easy to apply.
    • Alkali resistant, hence unsaponifiable.

    Material Base / Vehicle

    Synthetic latex according to German standard DIN 55945.

    Packaging/Package Size

    White and Off-White.

    SeidenLatex can be tinted with CaparolColor or AmphiColor® (AVA) colourants. If more than one bucket is manually tinted, all product must be thoroughly mixed before use in order to avoid colour differences. Quantities of 100 litres or more in individual colour shades may be ordered ready-tinted ex factory.
    The product is tintable to all current colour collections via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system. Check tinted paint before applying to avoid colour differences. Always use paint of same batch, when applying on seamless surfaces. If colour shades of low opacity are used, e.g. Red, Orange or Yellow, it is advisable to previously apply one priming coat of Caparol Haftgrund, tinted via ColorExpress technique in a matching priming system colour. Possibly a second finishing coat may be necessary.

    Supplementary Product

    Disbopur 458 PU-AquaSiegel: The mechanical and chemical stressability of product is significantly enhanced by two additional sealing coats of Disbopur 458 PU-AquaSiegel.
    Application is only possible for light (pastel) shades of luminosity/lightness index (LI) approx. 100 - 60. Protective sealing leads to a considerably matt (flat) surface and slight colour deviation may occur.
    Particularly on Capaver® glass fabrics highly stressable surfaces can be achieved. A slight yellowing may occur, if glass fabrics of other manufacturers are used.

    (–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable

    Suitable Substrates

    The substrate must be clean, sound/stable, dry, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion. Germany: Follow VOB, part C, DIN 18363, section 3.

    Substrate Preparation

    Interior Plasters: Class PII (Lime-Cement Mortars), Class PIII (Cement Mortars) / Minimum Compressive Strength according to DIN EN 998-1: 2 N/mm2:
    Solid plasters with normal absorbency require no preliminary treatment. Prime highly porous, sanding or absorbent plasters with OptiGrund or CapaSol.

    Gypsum Mortar and Ready-Mixed Gypsum Plasters of Mortar Group/Class PIV / Minimum Compressive Strength according to DIN EN 13279: 2 N/mm2:
    Prime with Caparol Haftgrund. Sintered gypsum plasters: Sand/grind off sintered skin, then remove dust and prime with Caparol Tiefgrund TB.

    Gypsum Wallboards:
    Prime absorbent boards with OptiGrund or Caparol Tiefgrund TB. Prime highly compact, smooth boards with Caparol Haftgrund to enhance adhesion.

    Gypsum Plasterboards (Sandwich-Type Plaster Boards/Drywalls):
    Sand/grind off filler (mortar) burrs. Prime and strengthen soft gypsum areas (repair patches) with Caparol Tiefgrund TB. Prime with Caparol Haftgrund, OptiGrund or CapaSol. Boards with content of water-soluble, discolouring substances that leave marks must be primed with AquaSperrgrund. Germany: Follow BFS-Merkblatt (Data/Fact Sheet) No. 12.

    Remove any residues of parting agent (formwork oil residues) and chalking or sanding substances.

    Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) / Cellular Concrete:
    Prime with a 1 : 3 mixture of Capaplex and tap (potable) water.

    Facing Brickwork and Fair-Faced Sand-Lime Brick Masonry:
    Coat without pre-treatment.

    Sound/Stable Existing Coatings:
    Directly rework matt, slightly absorbent coatings. Roughen/sand glossy surfaces and enamel/varnish coatings. Apply one priming coat of Caparol Haftgrund.

    After having completed the necessary preparations, repair small defects with Caparol-Akkordspachtel in accordance with our processing specification, and if necessary, prime subsequently.

    Method of Application

    Apply with paint brush, roller and spraying equipment.

    Airless Application: Spray angle: 50°; Nozzle size: 0.017” - 0.019"; Spray pressure: 180 - 200 bar. Stir and sieve well before applying. Clean tools/equipment immediately after use with water.

    Surface Coating System

    Priming or Intermediate Coat: SeidenLatex, diluted to a max. of 10 % with tap (potable) water.

    Finishing Coat: SeidenLatex, diluted to a max. of 5 % with tap (potable) water.


    Approx. 140 ml/m2 per coat on smooth substrates. On roughly textured surfaces correspondingly more. Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.

    Application Conditions

    Low Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
    +5 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.

    Drying/Drying Time

    At 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity surface-dry and recoatable after 4 - 6 hours. Cured and ready for stress after approx. 3 days. Lower temperatures and higher humidity extend the drying time.


    To avoid lapping, the material should be applied wet-on-wet and without interruption. When using Caparol Tiefgrund TB in interiors, a typical solvent odour is released, hence proper ventilation must be provided during application and drying. Use non-aromatic, low-odour AmphiSilan-Putz­festiger in sensitive areas. Touching up surfaces is depending on many parameters and may be visible after drying. Germany: See BFS-Merkblatt (Data/Fact Sheet) No. 25.
    Do not use phenol-based disinfectants to avoid surface yellowing.
