Suitable Substrates

The substrates 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. 
See Technical Information No. 650 for suitability of the product on miscellaneous substrates and their special treatment. 
Remove accumulations of mould on interior surfaces by wet cleaning, in compliance with legal and official regulations (follow e.g. Ordinance on Biological Agents and Ordinance on Hazardous Substances). 
Remove existing mildew/mould and algae growth on exterior surfaces by water jet, in compliance with the regulations. Remove suckers of creepers by mechanical means and/or by deseaming.

Thinning

Always apply the product undiluted.

Surface Coating System

Apply undiluted product to the saturation point of substrates. If necessary apply wet-on-wet, intensively working with a brush or special paint-brush, suitable for large-scale surfaces (whitewash brush). 
The priming coat must not form a continuous/compact, glossy film on the surface.

Consumption

150 - 200 ml/m2, depending on substrate absorbency. 
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 recoatable after approx. 12 hours. 
Lower temperatures extend the drying time.

Tools
