Sylitol® Mineralgrund

Pigmented silicate based primer for exterior and interior use.

Field of Application

White pigmented priming paint for hiding prime coats, outdoors and indoors, before applying emulsion-silicate paints. Particularly suitable to create grip coats on substrates which cannot ensure a proper silification of subsequently applied silicate/mineral coats. Also to be used for adhesion promoting priming coats on smooth, sound/stable substrates, as e.g. concrete, mineral renders/plasters in mortar groups PIc to PIV, matt (flat) emulsion coatings, sandwich-type plasterboards and gypsum wallboards.

Material Properties

  • Diffusion-capable, sd-value: 0.03 m
  • Emission-minimised, solvent-free.
  • Free from preservatives.
  • Water-dilutable, ecologically compatible, low odour.
  • High adhesion to the substrate.
  • Levels the substrate absorbency.
  • Good opacity (hiding/covering power).

Material Base / Vehicle

Potassium silicate, acrylic resin, mineral pigments and fillers.

Packaging/Package Size

  • Standard Product: 5 l, 12.5 l. Airfix: 25 l hobbock, 120 l paint barrel

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

See Technical Information No. 650 for suitability of the primer on different substrates and their special treatment.

Surface Coating System

Sylitol® Mineralgrund is usually applied undiluted, but can be adjusted to working consistency to a max. of 5 % with tap (potable) water.


Approx. 150 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.

Application Conditions

Low Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+8 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.

Drying/Drying Time

At +20 °C and 65 % relative humidity recoatable after approx. 12 hours. Lower temperatures and higher humidity extend the drying time.


Sylitol® Mineralgrund is applicable by paint roller (14 - 16 mm piles), brush and spraying equipment. 

Airless application
Spray angle: 50°
Nozzle size: 0.021" - 0.025"
Spray pressure: 150 - 180 bar
Equip the spray gun with a filter (green, rough type). Stir well and sieve the material before use.

Tool Cleaning

Clean tools/equipment immediately after use with water.
