    CapaMaXX can be tinted with CaparolColor or AmphiColor® colourants. If more than one bucket/container 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.

    CapaMaXX is tintable to all current colour collections via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system. Check tinted product prior to the application to avoid colour deviation. Always use tinted product of same batch, when applying on seamless surfaces.
    When colour shades with a lower opacity (hiding/covering power) are used, e.g. red, orange or yellow, it is advisable to apply a first (priming) coat of Indeko-plus or Caparol-Haftgrund, tinted in a matching priming system colour, available via ColorExpress. Possibly a second finishing coat may be necessary.

    Suitable Substrates

    The substrate must be sound/stable, dry, clean, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion. In Germany: Follow VOB, part C, DIN 18 363, section 3.

    Substrate Preparation

    Renders/Plasters in Mortar Groups/Classes PII (Lime-Cement Mortars) and PIII (Cement Mortars) / Minimum Compressive Strength according to DIN EN 998-1 : 2 N/mm2:
    Solid renders/plasters with normal absorbency require no preliminary treatment. Prime highly porous, sanding or absorbent renders/plasters with OptiGrund E.L.F. or CapaSol LF.

    Gypsum Mortar and Ready-Mixed Gypsum Plasters of Mortar Group/Class PIV / Minimum Compressive Strength according to DIN EN 13279: 2 N/mm2:
    Apply one priming coat of Caparol-Haftgrund. Sand sintered surfaces, remove sanding dust and apply one priming coat of Caparol-Tiefgrund TB.

    Gypsum Wallboards:
    Prime absorbent boards with OptiGrund E.L.F. or Caparol-Tiefgrund TB. Prime highly compact, smooth boards with Caparol-Haftgrund to promote bonding.

    Gypsum Plasterboards (Sandwich-Type Plaster Boards/Drywalls):
    Sand/grind off filling burrs. Prime and strengthen soft gypsum areas (repair patches) with Caparol-Tiefgrund TB. Prime with Caparol-Haftgrund, OptiGrund E.L.F. or CapaSol LF. Boards containing water-soluble and discolouring substances that leaves marks must be primed with Caparol AquaSperrgrund. In Germany: Follow BFS Data Sheet No. 12.

    Remove all residues of releasing agents and chalking or sanding substances.

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

    Fair-Faced Sand-Lime Brickwork and Facing Brickwork:
    No preliminary treatment required.

    Sound/Stable Existing Coatings:
    Matt (flat), slightly absorbent coatings can be treated without a preliminary preparation. Roughen/sand glossy surfaces and enamel coatings. Prime with Caparol-Haftgrund.

    Unstable Existing Coatings:
    Remove unstable coatings of enamel, dispersion/emulsion paint or synthetic resin-bound (organic) render/plaster completely by suitable means. Apply one priming coat of Caparol-Haftgrund on slightly absorbent, even surfaces. Apply one priming coat of OptiGrund E.L.F. or CapaSol LF on highly porous, sanding or absorbent substrates.

    Glue-Bound Distemper (Limewater Colour/Paint):
    Wash off the existing distemper very thoroughly, allow to dry and prime with Caparol-Tiefgrund TB.

    Unpainted Woodchip/Ingrain, Relief or Embossed Wallpapers made of Paper:
    Coat without any preliminary treatment.

    Non-Adherent Wallpapers:
    Remove the wallpapers completely and wash off all residues of wallpaper paste/glue and waste paper. Prime the substrate with Caparol-Tiefgrund TB.

    Mildewed Surfaces:
    Remove fungal (fungi/mildew/mould) attack by wet cleaning, then use Capatox or FungiGrund and allow to dry thoroughly. Prime according to the type and condition of the substrate. Apply a finishing coat of Indeko-W, Malerit-W or Fungitex-W on badly infested surfaces in compliance with legal and official regulations (follow e.g. Ordinance on Biocidal Agents and Ordinance on Hazardous Substances).Surfaces Stained by Nicotine, Water, Soot or Fat/Grease:
    Remove nicotine, soot or fat/grease stains by washing with tap water adding a fat-dissolving household detergent, then allow the substrate to dry thoroughly. Clean dried-up water stains by dry brushing. Apply an insulating coat of Caparol AquaSperrgrund. Apply one finishing coat of
    Aqua-inn Nº1 on strongly soiled substrates.

    Wood and Derived Timber Products:
    Coat with the water-thinnable (-dilutable), ecologically compatible Capacryl acrylic enamels or Capacryl PU enamels.

    Small Defects:
    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 or airless equipment.

    Airless application:
    Spray angle: 40° - 50°
    Nozzle size: 0.019" - 0.021"
    Spray pressure: 150 - 180 bar
    Clean tools immediately after use with water.

    Surface Coating System

    One even, liberally applied coat of CapaMaXX diluted up to a max. of 5 % with tap (potable) water. High-contrast surfaces may require an additional, previously applied priming coat of CapaMaXX, diluted max. 10 %. Apply one priming coat of Caparol-Haftgrund on unevenly absorbent substrates.

    Apply CapaMaXX evenly, then allow to shortly flash off and roll over very gently using the Caparol FeinRoller in order to produce nearly structureless surfaces.


    Approx. 125 ml/m2 per coat on an even substrate. On rough-textured surfaces correspondingly more. The exact consumption is best established by a trial coating on site.

    Application Conditions

    Lower 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 hrs. Completely cured and ready for stress after approx. 3 days. Lower temperatures and higher relative humidity extend the drying time.


    To avoid lapping, the product should be applied wet-on-wet and without interruption.
    Stir and sieve the paint thoroughly before airless spray application. When using Caparol-Tiefgrund TB in the 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.

    The use of CapaSilan is recommended for surfaces subjected to adverse lighting conditions (sidelight). Mechanical loads (scratching) on dark-coloured surfaces may produce visible bright stripes.
    The application of an additional protective finishing coat of PremiumColor in the same colour is recommended for intensively coloured surfaces subjected to mechanical loads.
    Touching up surfaces is depending on many parameters and may be visible after drying.
    (In Germany: See BFS Data Sheet No. 25).
