    CapaTrend can be tinted with CaparolColor or AmphiColor® (AVA) colourants. If more than one 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.

    CapaTrend is tintable to all current colour collections via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system. Check tinted product before applying to avoid colour deviation. Always use tinted paint 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 one first (priming) coat of CapaTrend 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 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: 1.5 N/mm2: Solid plasters with normal absorbency require no preliminary treatment. Prime highly porous and absorbent plasters with OptiGrund or CapaSol.

    Gypsum and Ready-Mixed Gypsum Plasters of Mortar Group PIV / Minimum Compressive Strength according to DIN EN 13279: 2 N/mm2: Prime with Caparol-Haftgrund. Sintered plasters: Sand/grind off sintered skin, remove all sanding 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 promote bonding.

    Gypsum Plasterboards (Sandwich-Type Plaster Boards/Drywalls): Sand/grind off filling (mortar) burrs. Prime and strengthen soft gypsum areas (repair patches) with Caparol-Tiefgrund TB. Prime with Caparol-Haftgrund, OptiGrund or CapaSol. For boards with water-soluble, discolouring content that leaves marks, apply one priming coat of Caparol AquaSperrgrund.
    In Germany: Follow BFS Data Sheet No. 12.

    Concrete: Remove all residues of separating 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 or Fair-Faced Calcium Silicate Brick Masonry: Coat without pre-treatment.

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

    Unstable Existing Coatings: Completely remove unstable coatings of enamel, dispersion/emulsion paint or synthetic (organic) plaster. Apply one priming coat of Caparol-Haftgrund on slightly absorbent, smooth surfaces. Apply one priming coat of OptiGrund or CapaSol on highly porous, sanding or absorbent substrates. Remove unstable coatings of mineral paint by mechanical means and remove all sanding dust. Prime with Caparol-Tiefgrund TB.

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

    Unpainted Woodchip/Ingrain, Relief or Embossed Wallpapers made of Paper: Coat without any pre-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/Mouldy 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 heavily mould affected surfaces, in compliance with legal/local 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 water adding a fat-dissolving household detergent, then allow the substrate to dry thoroughly. Clean dried-up water stains with a dry scrubbing brush. Apply one insulating prime coat of Caparol AquaSperrgrund. Apply one finishing coat of Aqua-Inn Nº1 on strongly soiled surfaces.

    Wood and Wood-Based Materials: Coat with waterborne, ecologically compatible Capacryl acrylic enamels or Capacryl PU enamels.

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

    Method of Application

    Apply with paint brush, roller or airless spraying equipment.
    Airless application: Spray angle: 50°; Nozzle size: 0.021" - 0.026"; Spray pressure: 150 - 180 bar
    Clean tools immediately after use with water.

    Surface Coating System

    One even, liberally applied coat of CapaTrend, diluted to a max. of 5 % with tap (potable) water.
    On surfaces with a high colour contrast: One previously applied priming coat of CapaTrend, diluted max. 10 %, may be necessary. Prime unevenly absorbent substrates with Caparol-Haftgrund.


    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

    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 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 (sided/grazing light). 
    Mechanical loads (scratching) may lead to visible bright stripes on dark-coloured surfaces.
    The application of an additional protective finishing coat of PremiumColor in the same shade is recommended for intensively coloured surfaces subjected to mechanical loads. Please follow Technical Information N° 382 PremiumColor.
    Touching up surfaces is depending on many parameters and may be visible after drying.
