The joint areas/panel joints are not to be finished crack-free. Here, for higher visual requirements, a decoupling layer with thin gypsum boards with appropriate filling is recommended.
Old lime filler techniques: Remove sintered layer on the surface by sanding. In case of negative wetting test with water on sanded surface, the entire lime filler layer must be removed and the substrate must be rebuilt accordingly. In case of positive wetting test with water on sanded surface, prime with OptiSilan TiefGrund.
Chips, joints and defects: Fill the recess with Füllspachtel P.
Note Q2/Q3 Filling / thin gypsum layers < 0.5 mm: When using gypsum-containing, hydraulically setting levelling compounds in quality level Q2/Q3, a transparent, water-based primer is recommended. For this, we refer to the Maler&Lackierer leaflet No. 2 -9/2020 "Adhesion problems of coatings on filled gypsum (cardboard) boards" of the Bundesverband Farbe, Gestaltung, Bautenschutz and the Bundesausschuss Farbe und Sachwertschutz. As an alternative to gypsum-based Q3 filling, filling with pasty filling compounds has proven successful.
Method of Application
Levelling filler applied by hand:
Stir well before application and apply with a stainless steel smoothing trowel. After drying, wet and felt or sand dry.
AkkordLeichtspachtel is particularly suitable for flat levelling on plasterboard, as this material can be drawn out to "zero". AkkordLeichtspachtel can be used in conjunction with a paper or glass fibre reinforcement strip for the reinforcement of chamfered/bevelled board joints of gypsum boards and gypsum building boards (GKB according to DIN 18180). Please note that the board joints may only be filled when there are no more changes in length due to temperature or moisture stress. The room temperature must not fall below +10 °C (see DIN 18181 Section 5). Fill the joint cavity with Akkord lightweight filler, insert the reinforcement strips, press on and smooth. After drying, coat again with AkkordLeichtspachtel. Joints wider than 3 mm should be filled beforehand.
Suitable spraying equipment:
The filler can be applied with plaster delivery devices and powerful airless devices. The delivery distance of the product depends on the performance of the airless device and can be obtained from the device manufacturer.
Remove all filters from airless guns.
Airless spray guns with a higher flow rate recommended by the manufacturer should be used for levelling compounds. Depending on the performance capacity of the airless device, temperatures below +10 °C may restrict delivery due to slight changes in the viscosity of the filler. A material temperature of +10 °C must be ensured for these devices.
The coating is particularly efficient and economical when used in conjunction with powerful spraying equipment for wall and ceiling surfaces.
Supply the appliance with levelling compound. We recommend using a material hopper. Full-surface, saturated spray application with filler, undiluted, and immediate levelling with a suitable steel trowel. The filler can be sanded after drying. Sanding meshes such as Abranet from Mirka or GranatNet from Festool with a grit size of 320 enable more effective work performance.
Suitable spraying equipment:
The filler can be applied with plaster delivery devices and with powerful airless devices. Airless spray guns recommended by the respective manufacturer should be used for levelling compounds. These guns have a higher flow rate and make it much easier to apply the levelling compound, and stirring with an agitator is recommended for buckets.

Work team and performance:
A spraying column consists of a team of 2-3 workers. One member of the team applies the material in a uniform layer thickness with the spraying device, 2 employees pull off the applied material evenly and then smooth the surface.
Special processing instructions for levelling and sprinkling:
In larger rooms, the ceiling must be levelled first before the wall surfaces can be sprayed. In this case, however, the upper part of the wall surfaces (the so-called head) should also be sprayed and levelled up to a height that can be reached from the floor. The lower part of the wall surfaces is then sprayed and also smoothed.
If only the ceiling surface is to be treated, it is advisable to spray a border away from the wall surfaces first and then spray the surface. After smoothing and slight drying, smooth all corners with a wet radiator brush. Remove bubbles after slight drying by smoothing again, repeat if necessary. Fill existing nests by hand.
After the levelling compound has dried thoroughly, block rust penetrations with a suitable anti-corrosion primer, e.g. Capalac AquaMulti Pimer, by stippling. Then apply a coat of paint.
Insert reinforcing fleece:
When using a suitable glass fibre-based painter's fleece (approx. 40 g/m2 weight), apply AkkordLeichtspachtel generously and in sufficient quantity for 2 to 3 strips, comb through with a stainless steel notched trowel (4 x 6 x 4 mm or 6 x 6 x 6 mm), lay in the fleece and press down evenly and smoothly with a stainless steel smoothing trowel, leaving approx. 5 cm unpressed in the edge area towards the next strip. Lay the next sheet with an overlap of approx. 5 cm and press down to the seam area. Make a double seam cut in the seam area with a cutter knife (or sliding foot knife if necessary) and then press down. Wipe off any leaking filler material with a damp cloth. Lightly sand any slightly raised seam areas before further treatment. Please also observe the information in the Technical Information for Capaver AkkordVlies G45 SP.
Surface Coating System
Recoat the levelled surface with:
Caparol dispersion paints, Caparol latex paints, Caparol renders:
After drying, apply a priming coat of OptiSilan TiefGrund, CapaSol RapidGrund or Sylitol RapidGrund 111 and, if plaster is subsequently applied, an intermediate coat of Putzgrund 610.
Caparol glass/cellulose wall coverings:
After drying, apply a primer coat with OptiSilan TiefGrund or CapaSol RapidGrund.
Surface-finished, highly diffusion-blocking or diffusion-tight wall coverings:
Akkordspachtel KF must be used for levelling. The technical specifications of the wall covering manufacturer must also be observed.
ConsumptionApprox. 1.2 kg/m2 per mm of coating thickness.
Application ConditionsLower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
+5 °C for substrate and ambient air.
Temperature of product during application must be > + 10 °C
Drying/Drying TimeApprox. 12 - 48 hours, depending on building moisture, temperature and coating thickness.
An evenly absorbent and non-slip substrate is required to apply the maximum specified layer thickness. Under these conditions, the material can be applied in one coat without starting to run, sag or crack. After application, the filler must be expected to shrink in volume over the entire surface as it dries. Particularly for thick layers of material to be applied over large areas and for coarse substrates, a double application is usual and recommended in view of the site conditions and in order to maintain the necessary drying times.
AkkordLeichtspachtel is not suitable for damp rooms. Due to the use of natural fillers, slight differences in colour shade are possible. If a speckle application is carried out that is to remain uncoated, we recommend that the same production numbers are used for the filler and the speckle application.
When used as a sprinkling on wall surfaces, the coating should be reworked with Caparol dispersion paints. This allows a higher resistance to be achieved, which is often necessary for wall surfaces.
When using plaster conveyor equipment, abrasion may occur, especially with new screw conveyors and hoses. Please observe the manufacturer's instructions for the plaster conveyor equipment.
Fine air bubbles may form on dense, less absorbent substrates. These can be removed after a short flash-off time by smoothing again. The time for re-smoothing depends on the temperature and humidity of the object. If bubbles appear again after re-smoothing, smoothing was carried out a little too early. Then repeat the smoothing process. To minimise this effect, a pigmented primer coat with Caparol Haftgrund is required.
In the case of rough, textured substrates, subsequent levelling may be necessary to achieve a smooth, even surface.
When reworking gypsum-based levelling compounds, swelling, blistering and flaking may occur due to prolonged exposure to moisture. It is therefore necessary to ensure rapid drying through adequate ventilation and temperature. Observe information sheet no. 2 "Filling of gypsum boards" of the German Gypsum and Gypsum Board Industry Association. Apply a primer coat of OptiSilan TiefGrund, CapaSol RapidGrund or Sylitol RapidGrund 111
