|(–) inapplicable / (○) of limited suitability / (+) suitable|
Suitable SubstratesThe 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 PreparationConcerning the suitability on different substrates and their necessary pre-treatments, please see our Technical Information No. 650 "Substrates and their Preparations".
Method of ApplicationAmphiSilan Tiefgrund can be applied with all common paint brushes, rollers or spraying equipment.
Nozzle size: 0.029”
Spray gun pressure: 50 bar
Spray angle: 60°
Surface Coating SystemApply one coat of undiluted AmphiSilan Tiefgrund on normally absorbent substrates. On highly absorbent substrates apply also undiluted, but liberally, saturating the full surface.
The priming coat must not form a continuous, glossy film on the surface.
When adding/mixing max. 10 % of AmphiSilan Tiefgrund into ThermoSan, an additional priming coat can be omitted in most cases. Follow Technical Information No. 156.
ConsumptionApprox. 150 - 250 ml/m2 depending on substrate requirements.
Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+5 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.
Drying/Drying TimeAt 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity recoatable after approx. 12 hours. Lower temperatures and higher humidity extend the drying time.
Tool CleaningClean tools/equipment immediately after use with water.
NoteDo not apply on horizontal surfaces exposed to rain/water and moisture.
Do not mix or dilute/thin AmphiSilan Tiefgrund with other materials to retain the specific properties.
